Razzle, Dazzle Me :The Fall Clothing Show

This past weekend was The Fall Clothing Show. A famous affair where designers, vintage connoisseurs and craftspeople extraordinaire come together under one roof and sell their best pieces. 

This year there was something for everyone: an abundance of wool pieces including cloche hats and shredded wool shawls, popular feathered headbands and mix 'n' match clothing from House of Spy. There was an excellent selection of vintage clothing ranging from 1940's to 1980's, full of fur coats, plaid shirts, leather boots and evening dresses, this section of the event certainly had you covered for the chilly season. 

Although this was The Clothing Show, I must say it was the jewellery and accessories that took centre stage. Colourful feathered head pieces were everywhere, eclectic layered and charmed necklaces could be found on nearly every table and almost every vintage booth had an assortment of classic quilted bags (Is it just me or is Chanel in the air?) and interestingly, bright yellow pumps.

Between my mother and I, the only items that we picked up were a beautiful selection of vintage jewellery including, a cameo necklace, a diamond brooch, a pearl necklace, a gold plated anchor charm bracelet, cream quilted bag and gold chain link bag. 

I guess this all goes to show that you that cannot judge a book by it's cover (in this case a title) because you never what little treasures you may be able find.
