On Location

It's a rare thing for me to get outfit pics taken while I'm out and about.
The opportunity just doesn't present itself all that often.
I love to see blogger pics of a grand day out so I finally get to share a couple today.
The Stylist and I went to a monthly pop-up vintage market in West End.
It's becoming a tradition that we really love.

 Comfort plus in a 1930s lingerie onesie I refashioned into a much more wearable top; Black Milk Leg Bone leggings; 1970s jacket from a Melbourne market; thrifted black lace scarf, feather earrings and necklace.

 Time for brunch ... mmm.

 Coffee, orange nails and green rings.

 Chorizo with asparagus, spinach and eggs ... damn fine!

 This chap caught my eye from the next table.
He was more than happy to be photographed and relished showing me his huge gold rings; necklaces and hat decorated with enormous crocodile claws and teeth, plus his massive croc skin belt.
What's in the bag?  A two-metre rolled up pelt - eek!!!
Turns out he's a crocodile farmer - no surprises there!

 Almost time to go home.

The Stylist bought herself some cherry earrings and was happy to show off her early morning multi-colour manicure where she used nearly every colour I own.
She's inspired me to do the same.  Thanks sweetie!
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend too:)
