Bernard, the kind soul who has always been fetching us to Camberwell.

Littlest Smalls.

And me. :)

This little boy was performing the moonwalk!
I wanted to take a picture with him, with both of us moonwalking... But I was afraid people would judge me.. T___T

The stall is furnished like a real shop!

LOOOOK! I have skinny armpits! Woot woot! Tae box works! :D

Bernard's posterior. But his backview looks like a VCD seller here. -_-
He's one of the very few M'sian guys I know who wears skinny jeans! ;)




Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
The weather was perfect. :)



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
He bought a vase. -_-


And Smalls said that I bought the whole Camberwell! Where got lar.
If I did, I would have bought these too!
On my wishlist:

A rocking chair.
I used to have fun at my old house, and I would rock on it so fast until I feel nauseous. -_-



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A patio chair. I want to laze in the sun in a bikini, and a book perched on top of my tummy.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A rocking horse PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
Actually anything rocking horse would be nice. I want one on a necklace! :P
And this one here is furry and comes with evil eyes too.

Garden bench, thank you very much.
The boyfriend is coming soon, and I need a love seat.



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
And this bird windmill/fan thingy.



And I had the loveliest breakfast!
Bernard and friends brought us to Flinder's Lane, which has a hidden row of cafes... I love hidden treasures!
And the flatmates have agreed to accompany me there and try them out. :)

My hot mocha. Poached eggs with raw salmon on English muffin.


Like I said, lovely, lovely. :)




And because I feel that I didn't really snap a lot of pictures of the market, here are some of my buys... ;)


Vintage finds:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
This shirt is way, way oversized... But I tried it on with a tan belt, and it looks cuuute! And it even has little eyelets! :)
Smalls calls this my Jesus shirt. -_-



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I am wearing this as a jacket! I think it'll be a cute look. ;)



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
And I have been looking for something like that since forever! (actually since I saw Kate Hudson wearing in Shop Till You Drop Feb' 2007 issue wtf)
Silk tunic? kaftan? top...


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
... with the loveliest detailings.
Sportsgirl was selling theirs for AUD89.95... And I got mine for...
2AUD. :D

I can wear this as a cardie/shrug... Am also thinking of just pinning it with a brooch, and wear it for clubbing. :P



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
There are little pearls on the flower appliques! And it's completely sheer at the back.
For days I want to be classy and elegant.



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Sequined oversized sweater. The sequin detailing is breathtaking, I am telling you.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I really really love this oversized sweater! I have been looking for one since forever! It will look super cute with skinnys and ballet pumps. And it's really soft and comfy too! :)


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
And it has little pearls scattered artistically on it. Aaah, love.
A steal for AUD5! ;)


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A really gorgeous silk dress, with a lovely fabric.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I love the pleating of the bubble bottom!




And my non-vintage buys:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Silk/satin-ish ballet flats.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I thought I was going to wear this as a dress, but upon trying it at home, I found out that I could button it differently, and it could be a cardie too! :)



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Loving the crotchet sleeves of this top.



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
For days I want to feel LOUD.



And I am damn sad!
I bought something that I already have! :'(

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Lovely, lovely dress, but after buying it, only I realised I have the white version! T____T



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Sheer top with asymmetrical hem.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
And a really funky print! ;)
When I showed this top to Jac, she told me she just lost money at Crown casino the day before. Oops.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Very versatile dress.



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
This is a little too big for me! :'(
But it would look so hot if it was fitting-- the scooped neckline, and the curved hemline. But, alas. :(



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
This is not really my style, 'cause I think it's a little mature, but nevertheless, it's a pretty dress.
But it makes me look yellow... Like the Simpsons.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Not just another boring top!


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
'Cause I like the sheer trimmings. ;)



And two of my favorite buys:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I love the pom poms on this one! :D



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A light gold silk dress... Love the neckline, love the draping of the skirt, love the beatiful back. :)


And I bought so many gorgeous vintage jewellery pieces the last time I went! But I couldn't find the same auntie who sold it this time. :(

But I did find this...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Vintage angel necklace.



The prices of my finds that day started from AUD1! I am gooood. :P

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE digging for little treasures. :)








Anyway, as I was saying, Smalls' assertion that I bought out Camberwell is completely unfounded!

Really waaaaan.

cass: ARGHHH, I am so sorry, it completely slipped mind! Have been swarmed with work these 2 weeks, meh. Will get to it by TONIGHT, I PROMISEEE! :D And which top are you referring to? Is it the kaftan-like AUD2 top? Haha, it's not white, the whole top is lilac/pink-ish... And I am not prepared to sell it, dear.. :( I really really really love it! So sorry! :'(


rileen: Haha, stalk away! I greet you with peace. :P And you have paid me with some wonderful compliments!!! 'Cause sometimes I think I'm too longwinded with my entries-- I blog about almost every little thing! :P


cryst: Aaaah, a fellow vintage/beatiful clothes lover! <33333 And the necklace is damn cute right?? :) Haha, don't have to rob, COME TO MELB!! :D :D :D


aud: Wtf, are garden bench designs universal, haha. And I don't mind selling off the dress-- but do you mind if I wear once first? I am very confused ler, 'cause both the black and white versions are equally gorgeous, but with different feels! T____T And HAHAHAHA living vicariously through me wtf.


anonymous: Oh, it's not a tube dress, it has thick straps-- which were covered by my hair! -_- I got it from KL, The Curve, I think.. :) But if you want it, I am actually thinking of selling it off! Hit me back!=)


jing: BULLSHIT. A WHOLE LOT OF BULLSHIT. You haven't gila-shopped for awhile-- WHAT A BUNCH OF BOLLOCKS. :P And oiii, my vintage stuff also nice what! *hurt*

Anonymous said...

tayshienwern@hotmail.com

anon said...

OMFG,ship me to Melbourne will ya? :(

Anonymous said...

is that purple top very big/baggy sideways? is it short?

revel in me said...

Jane: Alrighty, will mail you maybe later tonight, or tomorrow! :) Are you in m'sia? =)


anon: Haha, actually, I am sure everywhere there are lots of good finds! Even m'sia! :P Just that melbourne has this sort of flea markets-- somehow m'sia hasn't caught on to the whole vintage vibe yet. :(


anonymous: Are you referring to the silk lilac/pink kaftan top? :) Yeaaa, it's actually kinda big, but 'cause this type of tops aren't meant to be worn snug or fitting anyway.. And I was thinking of a low slung belt or something to cinch the top Haha, will experiment! :D ... And it's not short! Probably stops slightly above the hips. =)

Sophia said...

mustardqueen said...

Eh Jebus... Em... Don't fold ur sleeve when you're wearing ur Jebus Shirt k?? U won't look so pro folding ur sleeves!! HAHAHAH WHAT THE FUCK!!!~~

Rach-e| said...

hahaa.. I simply love your blog !
we share the same interests too. I love digging the old stuff, I call it the treasures in other people's junk.
I only go there when friends offer to drive.. hehee..
and I think I saw you in Monash the other day. =D

anon said...

Uh-huh,VINTAGE! M'sia hasn't caught the bug yet (and I suspect they never will -_-")

revel in me said...

anonymous: Haha, yes, she has a boyfriend.. :) And I get to smack her butt, hahaha! :P


sophia: I have a sot spot for white stuff too-- whenever I need to pick between black or white, it's always white for me.. :P and you should TOTALLY go to Camberwell!! Ask me along k!! :D


mich_dixc: My sentiments exactly! :D


mustardqueen: I have to fold it ler, if not it's too big for me! T__T


rach-el: You're in monash too?? :) Eek, I wasn't doing anything silly right? Haha... And yaaa, 'cause I stay in clayton, it's a bitch to get to camberwell!! I can only get there when my kind friends offer to bring us along too.. :P

revel in me said...

anon: YEAAA!! 'Cause M'sians are just too kiasu, they refuse to wear anything second hand... And I think it probably has something to do with how M'sians are real.. misers? Like, the only clothes they will give up are probably the moth-eaten and totally fugly ones... And partly also 'cause vintage clothes are usually funkier, and I guess m'sia just isn't ready for that yet.. -_-

xen* said...

babe, you are so DEAD.
D-E-A-D. how dare you go on a spree without me!?!?!?
i'll let you make it up to me by bringing me on the next one. deal? ;D

Rach-e| said...

yeap I was in Monash. Just finished. hahaa.. I can totally relate to your Taxation Law posts cause I think I did the same degree.. =D Ain't that a small world that I was bumming around and landed here..

Yeap, saw you walking out of Menzies !! I am staying in Clayton too !! and yea, I so can relate to the fact we are living in such a ulu town.

cass said...

that's alright snob:) if i were you i won't sell it to me eitherrr. looking for a shirt dress but it's infuriating that they are all too short. how long is the one you got at the market? i have a white sportsgirl one that i've never worn and looking to sell cos it's way too obscene for me (i am 5'10)

revel in me said...

xen: YESSHHHH!! I want to go shopping with you!! <33333

rach-el: Oh! I am doing a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Business Systems.. :P And wow, you've graduated already? Are you staying on for your PR? :) And oooooh, did Jonathan Teoh taught you for tax law? He shooo cuteee! :)


cass: *mouth drops agape* You're 5'10!!??? We can't be friends already... Haha! Crazy woman! What fantastic genes do you have??!! :P And erm, the shirtdress I got from the market is considered short, even on me... :(

And I've added you already, stop calling me a snob! :P

sarah said...

Rach-e| said...

hahaa.. I did Bachelor of Commerce (Acct & Fin) .. =D not yet graduated still waiting for the oct convo. yeap. staying for PR. =D I love Melb too mch.. kekeke..

revel in me said...

sarah: Haha, the pom pom dress, I actually had to borrow money from Smalls to buy it! I totally wiped my wallet dry that day (the market only accepts cash)! -_-


rach-el: Oooh, I am at the crossroad now, deciding whether to stay in melbourne or not.. :( And aah, since you have been here so long. recommend me places/things to go/do/eat! I want to do as much as I can before I graduate! :P
