Last week saw Sydney”s Angel place transformed into a haven for shoppers and people who accidentally dance while they”re waiting for the bus. Often neglected by those trying to hail transportation after work, this typically benign side street was lit up with the hustle and bustle of new discoveries. Birdcages lined the skies, triangle podiums and clothes racks lined the floors and hovering somewhere in between were DJ”s playing old school RnB were precariously perched on what looked like wooden cloud covered construction equipment.
For those of you who missed my intorductory post. Here”s a quickie: Bizarre Bazaar is a pop up market which runs every alternate month (or so) through A series of Fortunate Events. Its a novel forum for emerging designers to gain some exposure and sell their gear while bopping around to some sick beats. The items ranged from infant wear, kaftans, bustiers, jewellery, bags, vintage and almost everything in between. The menswear department was a little neglected but I imagine that”s based purely on availability. Sometimes I think mine (man that is) is more interested in what I”m wearing while he pulls on another hole filled jumper so I guess for now this works out ok.
At the very least the draw card for the otherwise inclined men was the promise of alcohol at the nearby IVY and the lovely roving models who struck poses and rotated and a whim. They also politely posed for the many people who randomly stumbled on this event and happen to have photo capable technology. The funniest moment of the night had to be when I was with Nora & Margaret, asking for help taking photos, and a random lady started taking photos of me. She is going to be sorely disappointed when she finds out that I”m not someone obscurely famous, unless she has optimistic children to guess otherwise…“I think that”s the girl on that toothpaste commercial!“.
In a previous post, I showed you what I wore . Now it”s time to make some brief introductions so you can exchange numbers. If I had to pick my favourites of the night and had an endless amount of resources, this is what my shopping trolley icon would contain:
- A cinnamonsister cow hide shopper tote
- A Magical Wonderland vintage bustier
- A Doury necklace and ring
- A fun Holly Eva necklace
- A Bachhara kaftan/dress
- ATAT knuckle dusters
I have a feeling, instead of abandoning my imaginary shopping trolley at the end of this night, I just clicked save for later or “add to wishlist”. I have two months to save that wad of cash. Let”s see if I make it huh?
