Kitty Cats and Vintage wonders

 On Sunday myself and my little family took a lovely trip to one of my favorite events of the year, The polka dot vintage markets. It only happens 3 times a year but with over 300 stalls that's okay. I spent a good 3 hours just wondering around exploring all the vintage wonders every one was selling. I found a whole heap of amazing things but most out of my budget, I just love to look. Of course I had to get dressed up, well I call it dressed up. I do dress up almost every day so its nothing out of the ordinary. I did pop on one of the latest items to hang its self in my wardrobe thanks to my wonderful boyfriend. The markets are held in a building in the show grounds in Perth, basically a place where a lot of events happen. I was planning on taking pictures of my outfit before I left but then I remembered one of the buildings there that I just had to get pictures in front of. I set up my tripod and took a billion pictures as everyone driving past thought I was crazy.

The building covered in black cat cut outs is by far the most perfect place to snap a few pictures. This little guy I decided to name Stanley. I'm not sure why, it just happened.

The Hell Bunny Constance dress has been high on my wish list for a very long time now but sadly it has become the most hardest dress to find online. Luckily for me I found a small shop within Australia selling them in the plus sizes only. I could have sized down but wanted the dress so bad that I got the 2XL. It is a perfect fit but I am looking at losing weight and wearing my corset a lot more.

The print on this dress is perfection. I have been obsessing over the Toile look ever since I saw Miss Amy May post about it. I have seen it on a range of dresses both new and old but all way out of my budget so I was glad that I found the Hell Bunny Constance dress. The little detailed pictures all over the dress are of a few different things from fruit to skulls, I keep finding new things to look at each time I look down.

I never actually looked at the neckline on the dress before I purchased it (I just loved the print that much) but I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on for the first time. The neckline and sleeves where perfect and very unique. There is a a lot of wonderful shapes happening that draw attention but in the right way. The sleeves kind of have this double layer thing happening which is beautiful, you may be able to spot it in a few of the images. 

The over all fit of the dress is wonderful. The material is not to heavy but has great stretch for that extra comfort and hugs the curves in all the right way. I absolutely love this dress and think it is beautiful, I also think its safe to say that little Stanley feels the same way.

Of course I have to share with you what I got from the markets. There was so much I did fall in love with but most was way out of my budget. I am happy with my 3 little purchases for $28.

I finally got my hands on a retro looking wooden pineapple bowl! I am still unsure what I will use it for but I just love it. How cute are the 3 little kitties? They look so cute sat on my dressing table right now, especially next to the large shell bowel I got. It was my favorite find of the day and for only $10, the perfect place to put all my brooches (except Erstwilder) and still be able to see them.

I have so much planed right now, from blog posts to a small business adventure so don't run away to far until next time.
