I popped by Queen Justine Vintage's pop up store on 374 Crown Street, Sydney the other day to find almost too many good things in one place. I swivelled 360 and I don't think I got enough photos - Justine and Cassie (of RaRa Superstar) had visual merchandised the shit out of every nook and cranny of that space.
Looking through the racks uncovered some skimpy silk pajama underthings, crazy vibrant print silk blouses, hand-dyed denim cut offs in all the colours of a Skittles rainbow and cropped singlets, brought back to life from vintage t-shirts. The other side of the pop-up was Ra Ra Superstar's gear, and her stuff is funkier than the name. She breathes life back into vintage fabric by twisting and cutting and sewing them into cute new shapes.
They close this Friday and both Justine and Cassie are lovely, lovely people - so be sure to pop by and pick yourself up a reasonably priced vintage treasure, or one cut up and disguised as a cute summer frock. If you miss it, Queen Justine Vintage has a site opening soon. I ran away with some insanely well-fitting black palazzo pants (think American Apparel disco pants...but PALAZZO. There is no better combination), and a snake print velvet mini cross-backed romper. A stylish revisit to the days I wore exclusively denim overalls (when I was about, 5...so this is a major upgrade).
