Raw Hemline in PEPPERMINT Magazine !

Well I may as well revel in my "fame" and share it with you !! Especially since Michael, my husband has appeared numerous times in various newpapers...so I think that's fair..?!!!

Below is the excerpt from Peppermint Magazine about RawHemline, featuring my favourite dress modelled by my best friend, Tam....

Until I figure out how to make these pictures larger, you won't be able to read the print, but it is basically a paraphrase of what is written on my etsy site....:)

Cinderella Loves Lurex !

I am having a wonderful time talking myself into letting go of some precious vintage items at the Vintage Vixens and Vamps market in freo coming up mid October....no I am not having a wonderful time, I am talking myself into parting with these treasures which I really either can't fit, or have had for too long and never wear...

My new vintage etsy store will be opening soon with the name CinderellaLovesLurex which represents me to a tee...I think....that's me...Below !

Here are a few sneak peaks....

Cinderella Loves Lurex!

Another stallholder joins us....read on...

Holly has been in love with vintage clothing since she was 14...or maybe earlier, since she always loved her nana's beautiful vintage dresses- especially the one which was from the 70's- it was in an incredible shade of peacock blue with a diamond underbust that was sprinkled with sparkling claw set rhinestones.
Today she still has a fascination with everything sparkley and ethereal. Always wanting to celebrate life, she likes to dress up as a princess in fairytayle vintage clothing everyday.... even if she is just going grocery shopping ! So it's easy to see why her online vintage shop is called "Cinderella Loves Lurex".
There are literally mountains of vintage clothing in her house that need to find a new life, so you can expect to see her parting with some precious lurex pieces, 60s cinderella style lurex shoes and vintage wedding dresses, amongst many other gorgeous finds.
To see some more photos of her vintage collection, please go to her blog RawHemline.blogspot.com, and also visit Holly's other online store, RawHemline.etsy.com, which is filled with ethereal experimental clothing and accessories, often incorporating vintage fabrics.

Acorn Vintage

Acorn Vintage is another stall you have to look out for at our Vintage Vixens October event. Lauren also owns Osier and hand makes the cutest jewels and fun things you'll ever see. To see some of her online vintage pieces check out her blog...

Lauren has always loved looking a little different, but has always been delighted when people wanted her vintage clothes. So now when she finds treasures, she shares them, with the help of her alter-ego Acorn. She loves it the most because now she doen't have to leave the things behind that she can't squeeze into... they can be yours instead!
Acorns Vintage is made up of cute, cool and whimsical - with lots of hand-altered details and style adjustment... and Acorn Vintage also caters to stylish men, with heaps of dress shoes, checked shirts and cardigans for the dapper within.

Hey Joe Retro

Hey Joe Retro is another of our stallholders at our October Fair. Read on...

What sort of things can we expect from Hey Joe at the VVV Fair this year?

Where did the name come from? Its a combination of a Jimi Hendrix song, our location on South St, and the first two initials of my name Helen Joyce - says it all about the shop.

Why retro? why not new? Who wants new just like everyone else, retro and vintage provides something unique, and retro especially gives you bright plastics, funky flowers and puts a smile on your face.

Benswick Vintage

Just one of the many stallholders at our next Vintage Vixen Fair! The kids from Benswick Vintage told us a bit about themselves...

Benswick Vintage came to be when both of us discovered a mutual love for fashions past and decided to venture through and scour the op-shops of Perth and grand-parents wardrobes for practical garments. Both having a creative streak we started to re-design garments and bring some of the more simple designs to life, we aim to produce clothing that is practical and affordable to keep Vintage lovers (especially students) in Perth looking amazing.

Ragdoll Photography

Our photographer this event is Shirin Carter from Ragdoll Photography...to check out more of Ragdolls work head to their facebook page...

Ragdoll Photography

A patchwork, a swath of colour, a kaleidoscope.
A lens full of colour and motion, faces, smiles and tears.

Ragdoll Photography is a small town, big time grip into the alter ego.
Based in Perth, Western Australia, Ragdoll Photography is a venture of Shirin Carter, an ex-journalist, and now a professional photographer.

Through targeting the inner superhero, fairy and rock goddess for pacifist fire, she is pulling the portrait to pieces and discovering new light and dark, colours and life within everyday people.

The next could be you.


Wow. It's been over a month since I last posted my entry. See, I am a moody blogger indeed! I am scarcely interested in jotting down my thoughts and reviews during the whole month of August. I don't know, it is just some kind of PMS thing. Lol.

Anyway, I dedicated my Saturday hunting down the ukay stores in Cubao. It was something that Erma and I planned out to help our economy/tourism. :D We were happy with our finds and I can't wait to post some of them here!

Ok. For now, I am comitting myself to at least update this blog regularly. At least, for now. :p And yes, I wanted my friend Erma to jot down her entries here as well. After all, I originally created this entry for the both of us. :)

I am excited to see her blogs! Erms? Blow it away!!!

Evans Modelling
