New Norcia New Beginnings

I'm back! Laying in bed recovering from the massive photo trip that I went on yesterday. So this post will be small on words and big on photos.

Dress: Vintage from eBay
Heels: Zu

This dress is bound to be a summer favourite. It is an original from around 40 years ago, purchased from Suzie (Divinity in Design) who is great to deal with. It features the loveliest geometric skirt and a tie up top.

So where did I go yesterday? New Norcia - Australia's last remaining monastic town, about 1.5 hours drive north of Perth.

On the way back my friend and I spied a little dilapidated building which begged to be photographed. So over the barbed wire fence we went.

The floors were creaky and hole-ridden which added to the fun.

The house was full of old woven bags containing flour. But most of it had solidified. The writing on the walls indicated that it was regularly frequented in 1965.

Oh yeah, I failed to mention that this dress is COMPLETELY BACKLESS. Heads turn. Especially when worn with these heels (which are, by the way, totally and utterly comfortable).

Photos 1, 2, 5, and 7 taken by my friend Peter. 3, 4, 6, and 8 by moi! All in all, a very productive day.

Headturning indeed! Great photos.

esme and the lane way said...

Wow, that place looks cool. I love your dress (and the familiar shoes!) oh and the soundtrack too.

WJ said...

Blogette - I think I picked the one good day of the week! Now it's windy and raining up a storm outside.

Miss Karen - For $25 I think so too! I'm so glad it wasn't one of those vintage dresses that manage to go above $100...

Dexter James - thank you! that's a compliment as good as they come.

Skye - it's may have been a mistake wearing that outfit actually, we went on a tour of the town and all the pensioners we were with kept looking at me guy gave disapproving stares at my tattoo.

Esme and the Lane Way - New Norcia is probably one of the most relaxing places I've ever visited! And I had a retro moment with the music, of course.

Annie said...

Awesome dress, love it!
