Wet weather purse

Last weekend I was sitting on the bus travelling down Parramatta Road - on my way back from the vintage fair in Leichhardt - when I spotted this shop with the most gorgeous looking vintage dresses and hats in the window that I had to jump off the bus and check it out.

The store was Sandie Bizys Studio and specialises largely in unique vintage inspired hats - Sandie is a qualified milliner - but she also stock a select, pretty and high quality selection of vintage clothing (including wedding dresses), accessories and jewellery + reproduction dresses. If you are ever in the Inner West her shop is well worth checking out.

After a chat with the lovely sales assistants I am planning on making an appointment to see Sandie about creating a hat for my wedding. You can check out some of her work on her website.
Cheekily I also picked up this super cute bag while I was there. Apart from a few scuffs on the white leather shoulder strap, this bag is in good condition and is so different to anything else I've seen of late. I love the wood handle and you can't really tell in the photo, but the bag is actually made of quilted floral fabric, embroidered with gold, and then covered with clear plastic. It is perfect for the wet weather (will the rain never end?) and it is just big enough to fit a Penguin Classic. What more can I ask for?
