All tagged shopping in byron bay
Meeting a talented Byron Bay designer all started with these trousers! I needed something for cooler weather, but not necessarily cold weather, when I arrived in Sydney three months ago. And, lucky for me, I found these in a 50% off sale by the trendy Aussie Tiger Lily brand. Then it was the big hunt for a top to go with them. Nothing I brought from the UK really worked and I wanted something as crazily patterned as these bad boys. Enter a little beach market in Byron...........
Not a pre-loved bargain but such an unusual dress from Karly Sunshine, in Byron Bay, for $130 (about £80) it would have been rude not to! The necklace was bought in Byron 3 years ago, & the bangle & sunnies are vintage, cheap as chips, and I've had them an age.
The only new addition is the turban I found very recently for about £5! So not a ridiculously expensive outfit but one that will work very well for dressing up more formally somewhere extremely hot.
OK I own up, I came out for my four month sojourn in Australia with a half empty suitcase! I'm sure you know by now that my absolute passion is digging around markets, vintage stalls, op shops/charity shops and independents. Especially here where the climate is more suitable for ferreting around market stalls and where hand made clothes and vintage pieces can often be found for a song, as well as being individual & quite different to something you'd find at home.
