The beauty about vintage finds is there’s never lack of colour. You can absolutely layer on extra colours to create an outrageous outfit or tone it down with some simple accessories. What I’ve always loved is clashing patterns. Case in point, an awesome green floral playsuit with a sheer green leopard print scarf. Matched with a hat, sunnies, chunky boots and backpack.
From next weekend, the Mode Madison vintage collection ( including this playsuit) will be available for you to try on and purchase at the Lost and Found Market, 511 Lygon Street, Brunswick East. Make sure you pay us a visit whenever you’re in the hood.

Vintage dresses are far from being frumpy. In fact, when styled right, you can turn the granniest looking vintage piece into something that’s both stylish and unique. Aside from the great quality, the best part is that most vintage dresses from the 70’s and 80’s era also come with pockets.
When shopping for vintage, you really can’t judge a piece on the racks. In fact you need to either try it on or be able to imagine it with accessories, other wardrobe items and the perfect pair of shoes.
I wanted to give you a little inspiration so have decided to style a Laura Ashley piece from my Mode Madison collection. Although created specifically for a wedding guest look, the result of the photographs from this shoot reminded me of Frida Kahlo. All I’m missing are the eyebrows.
The ‘covered in floral’ vintage dress is one of a kind and available for puchase on http://www.modemadison.com for $49.00 AUD plus shipping.
Thanks for reading and I hope you love this look I’ve created. xx
