My favourite words are “frock” and “pop up”. When the two are together it is an irresistible combination.
I headed down to St Patrick’s Hall on the second day of the Pop Up Frock Up Ballarat with Miss BG.
Miss BG was happy to go and spend some time with mum, especially when the outing ended in cake. Once inside, we marvelled at the range and stalls. Sunday was quieter, and you could move quite easily amongst the stalls.
While it is lovely to have a shopping companion, a nearly seven year old who loves to touch does make you hyper aware that a) the goods on display are fragile and b) expensive. You couldn’t get lost in the racks, flicking through without making sure little hands were not touching too much stuff. I ended up giving her my phone so she could take some photos.
The bling was definitely something which caught her eye and the dresses dod not disappoint. Vintage was quite an elastic term, with pieces from the last 20 years for sale, but stretching back to the 1930s.
There were though, a few dresses from the 19th century on display, which made for interesting viewing.
Cake beckoned as Miss BG’s interest was waning as and luck would have, we were right across the road from the Golden City.
It was a lovely afternoon of window shopping and marvelling at the beautiful frocks on display :)
