the village markets

what i did today:

1. emma warned me that the village markets were small, but still curiosity got the better of me. so my partner and i drove down to the gold coast to check out the hand full of stalls that were there. they were great stalls that sold beautiful vintage clothes and shoes, but sadly money is an issue this month with birthdays just around the corner. i did however grab this bow necklace by lovehearts designs. on the plus side, the markets gave me great ideas and i cant wait to finally have my sewing machine off layby so i can get started on all these projects i have been wanting to do.


now, may i say that the gold coast is a strange place. never have i seen so many beautiful, athletic, half naked people in the one area. looking around i saw many smiling faces without a care in the world and to be honest it made me feel a little apprehensive... where were all the jaded people in black? i wondered.

2. after leaving the markets earlier than expected i decided to hit the shops and grabbed a few bargains.



the shorts were bought for a trip to the beach. unfortunately, my friend had a change of heart and we are now meeting on dry land for a coffee instead. kind of disappointed because i was really looking forward to visiting where i grew up. i guess i should forgive her, she is after all very pregnant :P.

3. wore my dotti vest, mens bonds singlet worn as a dress, tiffany necklace, diva rings and esprit bag


until next time xoxox

  14. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
