Lady Luck Festival, Katoomba

On Saturday was the 2nd Lady Luck Festival up in the Blue Mountains - road trip!

Katoomba is about 2 hours away from Sydney, and about 10 degrees cooler too (bring your cardigan). Its full of cafes, antique stores and day-tourists coming to see the scenery.

Very Special Femmes! Can you believe that my pal Kim got her dress for $15 from a flea market? Its handmade, I think its a vintage repro.

The festival itself was REALLY small, a handful of stalls and cars but lots of people walking around. I was very well behaved and didnt buy anything there (although I snagged a pale green angora cardigan at an Op-Shop on the way up) and Cowboy bought some amazing anodised aluminium cannisters from a place on the main street.

I wore my border-print dirndl skirt + pettocoat, a white poplin top (based on the black version here), polka-dot espadrilles and black vintage cardigan. Accessories: vintage pink straw hat (from RetroSpect'd), my Nan's vintage brooch and earrings, pale-pink flocked chiffon scarf and pink el-cheapo umbrella.

The night before I tried setting my fringe in rollers and sleeping in them - BAD IDEA. They annoyed the hell out of me all night, and I ended up taking them out. Suprisingly the curls were still there in the morning. If someone can tell me how the heck to sleep in rollers, i'd be appreciative!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend too!

Heya Emma, its only a really new festival, don't sweat ;). I spoke to someone who said it was twice the size of last year, so I imagine next year will be even better!

You can't sleep in rollers. I tried many times in my teens. Eventually they came out with some sponge rollers that made it possible.

LOL - thanks M-H, that explains a lot! ;)

I use sponge rollers too. You just have to figure out where to place the pillow.
