"From geek to chic" was a vintage fashion show held recently at our public library (insert librarian joke here).
It was part of Dunedin's ID fashion week, and showcased clothes from a local vintage shop called Modern Miss.
The proprietor happens to be also called Violet, but I assure you it is not me!
Although I take issue with the title (I know all the models and none of them are geeks), it was a fabulous show.
It even made the front page of the local rag, the ODT (warning: article contains rampant abuse of "librarian" clichés).
I have cropped out the models' faces, as some of them were reluctant models! Please email me if you would like a better picture.

That's all for now - I am on holiday, which means I may take a few road trips for more vintage shopping!
