Flea Market Finds

I don't usually post about clothing ... but yesterday was exceptional and I just had to share ... a Leona Edmiston original from the 1980s for the princely sum of $5!


Isn't it gorgeous?


It's nasty synthetic but so elegant and it fits brilliantly ... it could have been made for me.

There's lots more Flea Market Finds happening with Sophie Isobel at Her Library Adventures.

That dress looks like its been waiting for you to come and find it. I bet you have lots of fun when you wear it.
Happy Sunday.

Oh great find!! I have a Leona dress in the same fabric and it is awesome! I lived in it when we went to Darwin last year and it didn't get yucky, and dried super quickly. I can't wait to see a pic of you wearing it this summer ;)

Ohh I do like that - I'm a fan of Sonia Delaunay (2oth C textile designer) and its very her - love to see it on you with some chunky jewellery!
