It seems my life has been nothing but brunches as of late: each brunch more extravagant than the last. Such is the life of an Arts student on vacation. On a scale of one to Marie Antoinette, the vintage brunching I did with my friend Laurel this week scored pretty high in the way of extravagance. When your date wears white gloves and stops to buy a punch bowl in a charity shop, one anticipates a most glamorous afternoon.
Before we ravaged the second-hand stores in Newtown, Laurel and I feasted at Silverbean café down Enmore Rd, where we enjoyed vintage Western décor, and a Vegetarian-friendly menu.

We proceeded to dart in and out of the curious stores along Enmore Rd, picking up enough treasures that it soon became physically impossible to cart them about (there was an incident involving the punch set and the footpath). In Retro a-Go Go, we stopped for outfit shots amid the rummaging:
