one day. three events. three dresses.

saturday was such a massive day for me.

as usual, everything i had been invited to in the last week, fell on the same day.  thank goodness, at different times!

my plan was to come down to sydney, with a mobile wardrobe.  wear a different frock to each event (keeping boots the same to make the procedure a wee bit easier).

so, we begin.

the first 'event'(via a coffee with a girlfriend and also an auction house to photograph items for my business partner to bid on this week)was the finders keepers markets in redfern.

i wore this gorgeous, bespoke 1950's tea-dress.  handmade, with vintage fabric by the very clever rebecca over at naughty shorts.

go. and. order. one. now!

then, i was lucky enough to be heading to pia-jane bijkerks book launch over at one of my favourite shops of all time.

(if you are ever in newtown, sydney, make this store a *must visit*)

the people were delightful, creative souls.  the shop looked amazing.  the champagne was flowing.  

i wore this.

a vintage, cream lace dress from darlinghurst vintage shop zoo emporium.  with a vintage gold belt and a 'carpet' clutch purse also from zoo emporium.

i was sorry to leave that little soiree.

but leave i did.  and did a quick costume change in my car in a back lane into dress number three.

it's a vintage sari that has been cleverly converted into a kaftan from gorgeous sydney vintage store, grandma takes a trip (the altered state).  i love wearing this sparkly little number.

off to event number three at a ritzy malaysian restaurant by the water.

a fabulous, albeit exhausting day!
