Was that a tent flying by.....!!

Yesterday I went with mon amie Marie to an Antiques and Vintage clothing market at Hillary's Boat Harbour and although the skies look blue in the above photo you can see by the palm trees that there was a gale force wind blowing making the decision to hold the market in a marquee rather an 'exciting' choice.....!! The young lady in the first picture was a fabulous example of how to work the 'vintage look' from head to toe, she was very cool and has her own website (vintagechic). The young lady in the second picture is the beautiful grand- daughter of mon amie Marie who was running her own very popular vintage stall....We left the marina at noon and the marquee hadn't taken off at that point, it's not that I'm disappointed, but just think of the photo THAT would have been.....only joking.....!!

  1. Now that had to be a very fun event. I would love to browse through a selection of vintage clothes. I'm imaging all kinds of treasures.
    I bet those tent walls were vibrating around you.

  2. I love how Australia has all of these markets with independent shops. Sounds like it would have been a good time.

  3. Too funny but it wouldn't have been if there were flying vintage outfits flying all over the city. Love the first shot!

  4. Does marquee mean tent in this context? Must be an Aussie-ism. Your models all have warm personalities despite the day.

  5. Does vintage mean 'pre-loved'? It often does in Paddington.

  8. Jacket looks great on her. The tent does look a little unstable.

  9. In Scottsdale one year the high winds ripped a tent off the country's premier classic car auction. I would not want to be the insurance company involved in that situation.

  10. Have the tents ever taken flight? That would be exciting.

  11. En effet, Gracie, j'imagine facilement les photos que tu aurais pu faire si le chapiteau s'était envolé... Mais je remarque aussi que les Australiennes sont vraiment toutes jolies...
    Bonne journée!

  17. That is a beautiful girl in photo #1. But I wonder about that vintage coat. Isn't that still the fashion. I think there's one just like it in one of our closets! :-)

    Gale-force winds I dislike much. Scary. But other than that it appears you had a beautiful day!

  22. My 27-year old daughter still dresses herself mainly with things she finds at places like this. Nice portraits of warm and attractive young women.

  23. Interesting story. Interesting views. Dressing up in retro style is sometimes a pleasant variety, especially for the neighborhood ... I see that a strong wind. Somewhere I heard that your city has the most wind of all the world's metropolises. / Peter

  24. He he! I guess you kept your camera ready just in case something dramatic happened to the stalls. :) Your friend's granddaughter is indeed lovely! I love it that younger women like the vintage look.
