Vintage Shops Hunt -Melbourne Pt.2

Sorry for procrastinating again, I am supposed to post this a month ago but I was so occupied and kept working on my papers for the whole March… However, I still did some interesting research on local vintage vendors during this month and now I have plenty shops to add on for this article 😉 that is definitely the good part for procrastinating hahah.

Now I can proudly tell you that I have been to all of their shops in Melbourne: which are in Northcote, Carlton and Fitzroy respectively. My opinion is these three shops have slightly different positioning: the one is Northcote is more like a warehouse store and you can see it always having sale; while the Fitzroy one and Carlton one is more like a boutique with selected brands and the pricing would also be higher.

Lost & Found

Unlike those vintage boutiques I introduced above, Lost & Found is more like a vintage flea market. It reminds me of those old markets in Europe, where you can find literally ANYTHING in the market: clothes, bags, furniture, CDs, accessories and handicrafts … it is such an ideal place to explore and to kill an afternoon 🙂

American Vintage Clothing Co

Another vintage shop located at Fitzroy. I strongly recommend you to visit Fitzroy if you are a vintage/art/cafe/food/bar/music lover, this place is magical and literally have everything you want. 90s bomber jackets and American jeans are just everywhere in the shop, go check it out and there are also several interesting fashion boutiques near the shop. Overall, I LOVE FITZROY!! (@Fashionmimo)

Photo Journey:Melbourne

I’ve made a trip to Melbourne last month. Believe it or not, I’ve spent nearly 20 hours on the plane in total but turns out my stay in this awesome city/country is just 4 days long. 4 days are definitely not enough for exploring Australia, but it is quite sufficient to have a quality city tour 🙂 The early-spring time in Melbourne is much cooler than in Hong Kong hence you can expect to have a sneak peek of my winter collection! Enjoy! haha!

At the University of Melbourne, one of the colleges I applied when I was in high school and 4 years later I finally can manage to pay a visit. (@Fashionmimo)

I bought this ultra-long trench coat years ago but didn’t have much chances to wear it out, this time I chose to wear ankle boots with heel so it’s time to show off my coat 😉

Cozy Weekend

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Cou cou! Here comes our awesome cozy weekend again. This sunday’s gonna be Chinese Moon Cake Festival so I’m already home and gonna spend it with my family. Normally we barbecue near the pool at night, in order to appreciate the silver moonlight reflected on the water and have a bite of lava-custard (?) moon cake 🙂 Actually there are so many types of moon cakes that I just couldn’t distinguish them…

So what’s your plan for this weekend? I got that feeling maybe I’m too old to go out now… Most of the time I just like to chill at my place and share pics on social media to pretend being socializing but ACTUALLY I’M NOT and I hate going out hahaha. Just kidding, but if you are also a couch-potato advocate, make yourself a good music collection and a cup of coffee 😉 or afternoon tea,whatever. (@Fashionmimo)
