I just got back from spending a few days in Wanaka over the long weekend, and have many photos to share! It was beautifully sunny (albeit swelteringly hot) weather the entire time and I had a lovely time. The morning before we left, Vanessa and Warren of Two Squirrels were having a fantastic vintage clothing sale at their pop-up store, The Nest, at their home in Rangiora, and I found some absolute gems for a bargain price! All dresses were $10 so I ended up with seven of them!
A very photo-heavy post, be warned...
my suitcase: pink plastic rosary was a gift, floral t-shirt, lilac blouse, belt and yellow sweater all thrifted, Marc Jacobs Daisy was a Christmas gift from my parents, rose hairtie was a gift, daisy headband on sale from a retail store in the mall
I found this amazing sixties dress in my favourite op-shop for only $4 and accidently cut it a bit too short when I was altering it! I sewed on some broderie anglaise trim and it saved the dress.
tights - retail
vintage t-straps - a wonderful little thrift store that was on Colombo St but is now gone!
My family and I found this amazing new 50s-diner-style cafe out by the airport and the food was fantastic and the decor was perfect! I fell in love.
I've just realised that everything I'm wearing in this photo was so cheap! My inner bargain-hunter is very content.
t-shirt and skirt - Charity Barn, 33c each
socks - retail, $1
shoes - $5, vintage sale at The Nest
plastic rosary - a gift
belt - thrifted, $1
rose hairtie - a gift
I adore these brogues! They are in such fantastic condition and are definitely seventies if not older!
This is my little sister, Bailey. She is a lot taller than me and already a ton cooler at 14.
Bailey is wearing:
shirt - thrifted
sweater - thrifted
sunglasses - mine
shorts - used to be mine, thrifted
boots - vintage sale at The Nest
wooden rosary necklace - Vast Interior (my parents store!)
We visited a fascinating toy & transport museum that was filled with so many amazing things. It was chaotic and messy and wonderful. I am a really big fan of all things miniature so I was pretty happy.
This is another one of the gems I found in the vintage sale! The print is so pretty, I love the colours.
