You’ve got to have been in your chrysalis to not know there’s pretty much a butterfly plague in Brisbane right now.
During the set-up at Mt Gravatt Fashion Market yesterday, I was in constant awe of how beautiful the butterflies looked against the growing sea of fashion as our sellers put together their stalls.
The fashion market came together beautifully and thousands upon thousands of clothes, shoes and accessories transformed the once grassy block of land and a tin shed into shopping heaven streaming with fashionistas, a lifecycle not unlike that of a butterfly.
During the reading, I was asked if butterflies had any significance for me. They didn’t, but now every time I see one, I wonder what the significance of butterflies are in my life
Are fashion markets the reason that tea leaf reader asked me about butterflies?! Is it because we are suffering from a plague of overconsumption? Could it be that it ties in to the transformation that happens when people take a leap and book a stall to sell their stuff?
This week has been full of the big philosophical questions, let me tell you!
Without pondering the meaning of life and plagues too much, I (of course) starting daydreaming about all the ways I love butterflies and nature and Brisbane and fashion markets, and ended up thinking about…
The Vintage Butterfly Top.
How amazing does Romanian fashion blogger and designer, Gabriela Atanasov, look in this her vintage butterfly sequin top? I bought mine at a vintage market in New York, but I have seen a few pop up at our fashion markets now and then. Note to self, wear butterfly top more!
The Butterfly Wing Shoe
The Mary Katrantzou Butterfly Dress
Hope you love this butterfly plague as much as I do!
Come and say hi and tell me your butterfly stories when you see me at our next market!
Who knows, selling your clothes you no longer wear *could* be the meaning of life and the one thing little thing you need to get you out of your chrysalis and let you fly!
See you soon
