Circumstance sent me to Brisbane a little while ago, and whilst illness is no happy reason to be travelling interstate (hi Grandma!), this jaunt to Queensland did happen to coincide with my girl crush Em’s 30th birthday soirée. So Saturday night found me in a whirlwind of well-dressed vintage ladies and generally dapper party guests, alternately swing dancing and fangirling.
Some photos from the evening:
Avec Em, the birthday girl.
The petticoat-ed vintage ladies running amok.
Em et moi avec one of the lovely ladies of Instagram looking all 60s mod and great: Sarah, aka @missmatchbox.
And here I am with Jason, in all my amateur lindy-hopping glory. Some quality twirling.
Twirly vintage love, until next time.
I’ve always been a little promiscuous with my hair salons, but I think I may have finally been tempted into monogamy by The Leopard Lounge in Newtown. I spent the most heavenly afternoon there this week, touching up my colour and getting the ever-elusive midi haircut with the very lovely Milena. It was all 50s/60s boudoir décor, Beatles music, vodka-spiked setting lotion and retro chit-chat. Milena even has a well-stocked vintage bar – so divine.
Here are some snaps of the salon:
And now for the hair, styled into a glorious set of Dita-esque curls. Also, rad 50s specs!
I had a Lady Gaga concert in the evening, so it was a good day to visit The Leopard Lounge. Here I am in all my concert regalia later on in the day:

Happy, well-coiffed love to you all!
