Neuf Têtes - { Nine Heads }

Shopping for vintage treasures is one of my greatest joys! Spying a delicate slip buried underneath 1990's shouldered padded numbers. Another pair of knee high boots to add to my vast collection....there is always another hue just around the corner that I never knew I needed!
A man style jacket in a delicious tweed.

Unfortunately though, the bower bird in me is more often than not drawn to the fanciful and theatrical. Sequins, garish colours and prints, silk shantung...more sequins! And therefore I have a wardrobe more fitted to a drag queen than a stay at home Mumma.

Today, an op shopping trawl with my own Mumma Bear. Dressed in vintage finds that are wearable in places other than on the stage of the Moulin Rouge, I hope to channel some brilliant (and practical) finds.

Grey skinny jeans - sass and bide
Black skivvy - Big W
Faux fur vest - vintage
Scarf tied around wrist - vintage
Brown suede boots - Sportsgirl
Handbag - Louis Vuitton

Note: 9 Heads is a way of drawing fashion figures using the head as a measurement.
