PUBLISHED IN VINTAGE LIFE MAGAZINE OCTOBER 2015
My friends and I were amongst over 750 vintage fashionistas who enjoyed the recent Frock Up Sydney event at the Randwick Town Hall in Sydney, Australia. The beautiful vintage venue is the perfect spot to host this event which boasts the cream of the crop of vintage sellers with everything from atomic phones to spectacular glasses that even Jackie O would be proud to be seen in (and perhaps even was, or is that wishful thinking!)
The event included a vintage cafe serving homemade scones, cream and jam, pies with rosemary potatoes and homemade soup. Plus vintage magazine reading material to keep you entertained while you ate! There was also a 'We'll Meet Again – Forties Fashion Exhibition' with dresses on display that you could actually buy!
My friends and I had so much fun checking out all of the fantastic vintage offerings. We are all lovers of vintage fashion and style, so an event like this means a chance to frock up and be seen.
Amongst our group we share a love of a wide range of eras. I went for 60s this time, other friends went for 40s & 50s, while another looked positively radiant in an apricot, 'flower child' 70s dress that funnily enough was exactly like a dress I wore as a flower girl back in the day! I think the diversity of our group just shows you that there are no 'right and wrong' eras when it comes to vintage. Follow your heart and wear whatever makes you smile.
The event organisers are passionate vintage lovers themselves and arrange events all over Australia.
