The phrases, "I have nothing to wear", "Everything looks the same" and "where'd the good styles go?" have been uttered by everyone at one point or another, but if it's getting to the stage where you say it on a near-daily basis, then stop your stressing and head to the Round She Goes Fashion Market in Sydney's Marrickville Town Hall on Saturday 28th May between 10am and 3pm.
Even if those phrases have never passed through your mind (lies), you should still check it out - vintage lovers will froth at the mouth over some of Sydney's finest vintage sellers' stalls. Visit stallholders like The Crown Street Project, Armoire Vintage or Blue Belle Vintage Clothing for some of the best in vintage womenswear.
