On the outskirts.....!

Excellent way to spend a Sunday morning.. Aimee (ma belle fille) and I went into Northbridge which is just over the bridge from the city centre to a special market day called 'Outskirts'... 'pop -up' stores and events held in streets, laneways and local shops all along James Street. Aimee found a few 'vintage' bargains and tried on and bought a  'facinator' (above), I on the other hand bought a gorgeous bunch of Ranunculus and arrived home with my purse 'intact'!! All in all not a bad sort of day.....

  3. The top photo immediately made me thinks of the old Campbell's Soup ad - do you have it in Australia? - mm, mm, good. The light in the bottom picture of your daughter makes her glow.

  5. Oh I just learned about a "fascinator" of late. My friend wore one when we went for drinks. I think you two shared a grand day.

  6. I love Aimee's facinator - just perfect for a Melbourne Cup outing!
    I'm sure, like you Grace - I would have purchased the pretty posy of ranunculus - love the way they have used the lime green wrapping paper - exquisite!

  16. We are big into the fascinators here (thank you Princess Kate) and it looks adorable on Aimee. She is your sister, not daughter, right?
