My outfit for my work Christmas party is almost complete. Today I bought a pouffy petticoat to go under my 50s style dress, and shoes. I tried it all on when I got home and I'm very happy with it, although I'm not used to looking so girly. (Sorry, no photos until party night!)
I visited Retrostar Clothing on the first floor of the fabulous Nicholas Building for the first time today in my search for a pouffy petticoat. Retrostar is chockful of vintage stuff, but the building itself is just as big an attraction. The arched leadlight shopfronts are lovely.
I was over Collingwood/Brunswick way again today. I found more old signs.
Vaccinations every morning. Teeth extracted. That's all I
can make out. Gertrude Street.
I think this is one sign over the top of the other - one looks like
Winfield cigarettes. Also Gertrude Street.
The other side of the building above. A sign for a
chemist spruiking something called Lactogen.
