Welcome back for week 4 of the Polly Dolly weekly Polyvore challenge!
Every Thursday I’ll post a new Polly Dolly Theme Challenge, then you toddle off and get creative. You can credit the items if you want and add a bit of an explanation of why you chose the pieces or you can just share your clipboard… it’s up to you. When you’re done maxing out your imaginary credit cards, simply add your link below using your blogs name as the “title” and a direct link to the specific blog post. Note: As Polyvore only publishes to Twitter or Facebook, I’ve found the easiest way is to ‘capture’ what you create and save it as a jpeg and publish as normal image.
This week I feel like Dolly needs a little retail therapy, not to mention some sunshine. What better way to combine the two than the local markets! What would you wear/take with you to the Markets?
I love going to the markets. I’ll admit I mainly go for the vintage finds and crafty goodness (not to mention the sausage sangas) as I have a great local grocer but sometimes I can’t help myself. I’m a sucker for carrots with the stems still attached and there is something calming about seeing a stall covered in wicker baskets overflowing with fruit and veges. On the 1st of May I’ll be traveling up to Mount Tomah Botaical Gardens for the annual Autumn Harvest Food & Wine Fair. The weather has been lovely lately and I really hope it continues so I’ve dressed my Dolly pretty casual.
I love the stripes of pastel orange in the Top and even though I could never get away with wearing them, the shorts are pretty darn cute. A wide brim hat is a necessity but why not wear something glamorous, especially when teamed with the sunnies. I love the tan ribbon sandals and desperately want a pair for myself. If I have the luxury of going to the markets alone, I’d take my iPod and chill out to songs by Kate Nash, Joanna Newsom, Frou Frou, Emiliana Torrini and Angus & Julia Stone (click them, they’re video clips). A beautiful blue water bottle is handy as everyone seem to overcharge for bottled water these days and a cute indie inspired purse is a must.
