The 2015 Fifties Fair that wasn't...




So in case you were living in a hole over the weekend, the biggest vintage event of the calendar year here, the Fifties Fair in Sydney got cancelled due to the heavy rain the night before making it unsafe. NO! So many sad, pouting pin up lasses and lads in Sydney on Sunday morning as the announcement came through. I was sad too, because not only had I already left the house when the announcement came through, but the humidity also STOLE my curls from me. I left the house with curls, by the time I got to the train they were gone. So, double sad. 

Still, it wasn't a waste of a day - in fact, I had plenty of fun!  I was already going to meet Bonita of Lavender & Twill at the fair for a catch up, so we adjusted our plans and met for brunch and shopping at Newtown where it seems a whole bunch of people had already descended in their dressed up but no where to go glad rags. It was really quite a happy day! Bonita took some photos of my sort of assembled look - I forgot to put on my gloves and sunglasses for you to enjoy and of course my curls had long died. Oh well! 

Wearing... 
The Sweet Life Vintage 50s Jerry Gilden dress, Melissa heels, Thrifted vintage bag, The Vintage Drawer opal lucite earrings, My Vintage Hat Shop 50s hat.

So disappointing!!! I was sad when I saw on instagram that it had been cancelled because I was so looking forward to everyone's outfits - even though you didn't get to go you still looked AMAZING! This dress is so interesting, I love the detail on the sleeve - and the print itself is so sweet.
