One of the absolute highlights of James and my trip to Melbourne happened on the last day, in fact it happened on the way to the airport: we got to visit Circa Vintage!
Having met the lovely Nicole at our tea party we were super excited when she invited us to the shop on our last day in town! There was a New Zealand TV show filming in the store that day for a competition of some sort so the shop was bustling with excitement ^_^
The shop itself was full of so many beautiful things! I seriously could have spent my entire bank account with very little trouble, to be honest if we hadn’t been on the way to fly home I probably would have left with bags and bags of beautiful vintage dresses and accessories!
Nicole was lovely enough to let me try on some of the dresses and I had such a wonderful time prancing around like a princess!
The first piece I tried on was this beautiful pink number:
The fabric had the most beautiful floral designs woven into it and on the front there was a big bow!
The next piece was a purple lace dress which was much more form fitting. Here I am as the lovely Fiona helped me clip it at the back, I was too small for all of the dresses so we clipped them for the photos ^_^
Mwahaha we even convinced James to get in the spirit of things as he tried on this delicious vintage wool suit. I had to tell him like 50923842 times that a wool suit wouldn’t do well in Brisbane’s climate and he still didn’t want to part with it! How dashing does he look seriously?
This next dress was my favorite of the day and they practically had to bribe me to get out of it!
It’s a beautiful blue chiffon piece with lace details sewn around the bodice and skirt.
Being surrounded by the camera crew! I can’t wait to see how they edit the footage together!
One of the many reasons I loved this dress was the twirling action! I felt like a Disney Princess XD
The dressing up bug was contagious and Candicefound the most lovely fitted purple dress!
Ok we took way to many pictures…. but how awesome is it?!
By this point the day went something like this with James falling asleep in the chair while I camwhored 😉
Being clipped into the next dress by the wonderful Nicole and Fiona:
This is the only picture of both of us from the whole damn trip!
The whole atmosphere in the shop was beautiful!
PEARLS! It’s like some kind of lovely dream 😀
