Ahhh it’s so nice when life returns to it’s normal level of crazy! It’s incredible how disruptions in the regularly scheduled program can make things feel all out of whack. But (for the time being) I’m actually in this time zone, healthy, and experiencing a workload that only makes my head spin the standard amount, as opposed to helping me audition as an extra in The Exorcist…
It also means, I’ve had some spare time to browse my favorite vintage shops and start compiling my normal wishlist! My eyes are always bigger than my wallet, but here’s my monhtly roundup of the latest things I’m lusting after. As you will no doubt see from the range of sundresses below, my heart isn’t quite ready to give in to the fact that winter is nearly here…
For My Castle
I love upcycling and making art out of found objects. I love these little keepsake tins – like they have a secret inside only I would know about.
The idea that someone hand-crafted and fused each of these tiny millefiori pieces to make this bowl is beyond amazing…
It’s hard to know whether I want to shower with them or eat them, but these mini donut soaps look scrumptious!

While we’re on the topic of soap (clearly I’m craving a long luxurious bubble bath), how beautiful are these handmade custom soaps?
For My Closet
Guys. This dress. I can’t even.
I love the sheer sleeves on this romantic beauty of a dress.
This buttercup yellow dress had me at flocking…
The leaf appliqués on this taffeta party dress are so magical.
The citrus hues of this dress would definitely pop through the gloom we’re having here in Perth (and she’s on sale!).
This green and white striped dress looks absolutely perfect – from the pocket to the diagonal buttons. Want.
This 1950’s skirt is so twinkly and twirly…
Pink and grey have always been one of my favorite color combos. I just love the plaid of this cutie…
Sometimes there are the most perfect dresses that are out of your price range but you still like to drool over them. Sigh. A gal can dream…
For Some Arm Candy
I have a weakness for bags masquerading as something else. This house purse is the cutest! I’m ready to move in…
I die over this bag. Literally it slayed me.
Every season, Betsey Johnson makes about 12 handbags I want. This phone purse even has a detachable handset and a phone charger! Fashion and function.
My love of embellished vintage box bags knows no limits…
Ahhh the shape, the embroidery – this bag is everything!
For Some Frosting
Anything fruit and I’m in! This bracelet….
This necklace is so delicate and stunning.
I’m not much of a ring person, but I’ve always loved the simple happiness of daisies…
I may talk a big game, but this is simply the calm before the storm, as I’m off overseas again only next month (I know! I’m such a glutton for punishment). As such, I have to be saving my pennies and not spending them on all of the beautiful vintage out there, however tempting it must be.
So, I’m hoping one or two of these makes their way into your closet. Cause if they can’t be in mine, at least I know they’ve stayed in the family!
Happy Shopping (or if you’re like me, happy wishlisting!)
