Put a Bird on it II


I have been busy with uni lately, and haven't had time to do any sewing or op shopping but I have been wearing clothes, so I thought I'd just show you what I wore today.  


Vintage dress: Two Squirrels
Cardigan: Op shopped
Shoes: Hunters and Collectors, Wellington
Belt: Op shopped
Brooch: Trademe
Bag: Trademe
Tights: Can't remember



The bag is one of my favourites. It's actually a toilet bag but it's way too awesome to use for that. It's not just me that thinks the bag is great, every time I use it someone comes up to me and says, "I love your bag".

    1. Thanks! It's taken me about six years to build up my vintage dress collection. It takes a while to find them but I'm sure you'll have a wardrobe full of jealousy inducing vintage dresses soon too.

  3. Gonna be yet another person to say it: I love your bag. You always have the best Trademe finds, I have spent way too much on there since getting a job.

    1. Thanks! I bought it a few years ago when trademe had awesome vintage stuff relatively cheaply. I don't think it's as good any more. oh man, having a job again must be so good.

  4. That's a cute bag and I love your brooch too. I have my eye on a bird bag but it's way out of my price range, I consider £10 too much for a bag so considering the one I want is four times that, I can go wanting!

    1. Thanks! I don't like paying much for bags either. Hopefully the bag goes on sale and you can buy it.

  5. The print on the dress is so pretty and you're right, the bag is way too nice to be used for cosmetics xx

    1. Thanks! Yeah, it is. I use it for cosmetics when I go away but as a handbag at other times.

  10. That bag is just too beautiful. I wouldn't use it as a toilet bag either, it is far too nice to be hidden away and goes beautifully with your outfit.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, it would be rather a waste to only use it for what it's meant for.

    1. I know! It would have been a bit awkward if I'd been running around naked, not to mention cold. Thanks.

  12. I was going to ask you where you bought the bag but you said it later on. I can't believe it's a toilet bag. Don't tell anyone that! haha. Regardless, it looks killer! You rock it!

  13. That bag is amazing, far too good to be a make-up bag! It works brilliantly with your pretty frock! x

  15. Great post title "Put a Bird on it"... I'd been going through a mega-bird phase when my husband and I happened to see a Portlandia show in which that phrase is batted around freely by tree-huggers, but I suppose I am a bit of a tree-hugger.

    Love your colorful ensembles and especially the bright yellow glasses in your playsuit post.

    I agree with you about quilting fabrics. They do work very nicely in some garments. Using them is a matter of personal preference and depends on the intended outcome. It's also important to keep in mind - quilting fabrics are available in a variety of weights and quality, just like any other fabric.

    Anytime you're too busy to write a post, stop by Toile La La and leave a comment because I like your observations.
