On Sunday morning I went out for a walk in the rain (yes, the cold and rain has finally arrived in Melbourne - after weeks of intense heat it was pure bliss) and I happen to walk past the Como House in South Yarra. I always wanted to visit and have a look at the impressive mansion (built in 1847, now under the custodianship of the National Trust of Australia). It is set in a beautiful park overlooking the Yarra river. I was more than happy to read a big sign at its entrance promoting a Vintage Sale that was hosted in the Great Ballroom, accessible by gold-coin donation. Vintage clothing and fabric all set-up in a stuning location - I was sold.
So I headed up through the park and quickly escaped on to the beautiful deck before heading inside. Inside two of the main rooms had been set-up for the sale featuring vintage dresses, hats, accessories, shoes and fabrics. I loved the way the vintage pieces blended in the lovely decor of the room with its golden mirrors and chandeliers.
I tried on this red beauty; I loved the colour and the wooly texture of the coat! It was a bit big though and with a heay heart I decided to leave it there - also thinking about the upcoming sample sale we are having at the office later this week (enough money will be spent!!).
The perks of working in the fashion business!! :)
It was a great start into my lazy Sunday! Loved the house and had a fun time taking pictures.
How was your weekend? Any adventures? *K
