I live in Perth, West Australia so it's winter at the moment. It feels very cold because of the strong cold wind from the sea (10-20C during the day, that will make anybody in the hemisphere laugh) but we get a lot of sun during day so you can get away with less layers but at night you need to rug up because it can get down to 5C. I love the winter time because I can wear all my lovely winter coats and cardigans but reading all the blogs from the northern hemisphere has me hankering for the heat and sun.

This afternoon my mum and I went to the Astor cinema for the Revelation Perth International Film Festival to see We Are The Mods. It was a very cool movie about a girl who becomes a mod after making friends with a new girl in her photography class, a good American coming of age story. I loved all the clothes, music and scooters. I had to rug up because it is very cold and wet in Perth at the moment but wish I had taken a coat with me to ward away the rain.

Yesterday my brother and I took our Mum out for lunch for her birthday. I was luckily in Mt Lawley on the right day because there was a vintage clothing market at the Flying Scotsman. It was packed full of vintage clothing and even more people. I bought a wool checked circle skirt for $15 (that needs to be taken up), a nice 50's day dress decorated with blue roses for $20 and 2 cotton 50's sundresses each $20, one with gray flowers and pink flowers and the other a madras check in pink and brown. My mum got some fabric to make a dress and trousers with and a nice 60's styled cocktail dress and my brother got a Motorhead record.
