Bombshell Vintage's first birthday
You may remember around this time last year I blogged about the launch of an amazing plus size vintage store in Melbourne? Well Bombshell Vintage just celebrated their first birthday, and boy did they do it in style! Held at Fitzroy's latest hot spot, The LuWOW, a fabulously kitsch Tiki bar which wouldn't look out of place in an Elvis movie it was the perfect backdrop for the night. With performances by Fatty a-Go-Go who are part of Melbourne's new fat burlesque troupe Va Va Boombah and runway shows not only by Bombshell Vintage but also local Melbourne plus size designer Fox Parse and Hey Fatty the plus size vintage online store.
Sydney blogged Caitlin of Closet-Confessions and Melbourne blogger Ashley of This is Ashley Rose were in attendance.

Next on the runway were Hey Fatty who are passionate about vintage plus size fashion.

Bombshell Vintage's runway presentation blew me away with its amazing styling. From the colourful hair and make-up to those light up flower hula hoop things it was amazing to see plus size fashion presented in such an avant garde way.
The colourful make-up and stick on gems which I loved.
It was hard to capture the lights with flash.
I eventually managed to capture a few not too blurry photos without flash. The lights looked amazing in person.
The models backstage with their lights on, it looked amazing!!!
Bombshell Vintage is now located at Collingwood's Lost and Found Market.
1-5 Perry Street, Collingwood (just off Smith Street)

For the event I borrowed my sisters neon yellow necklace.
I couldn't help myself but wear my new favourite Topshop skirt again, I love it so much. Good news guys is that it wasn't sold out online after all, it just wasn't released online yet so yes you CAN NOW BUY IT!
