Street Snaps: Chantal in vintage clothing PLUS discounts from Wasteland!

I met Chantal on Queen St. I love vintage clothing so it was so easy to spot Chantal. Chantal is the owner of HINDSIGHT, an online vintage shop. So it’s not surprising that most of what you see on her is from her shop (except for shoes which is from Wittner, sunnies from Sportsgirl and wooden watch from we-wood.com.au).

Earthy tones paired with tan leather, wooden, beaded and suede accessories.

How cool is this watch? It’s from WEWOOD. I love it!

Woven bracelets in bright colours.

A cute messenger to complete the look.

Chantal’s sunnies are from Sportsgirl. I have something similar from Cotton On which is slightly cheaper.

This is where Chantal bought her watch from. They plant trees with every purchase. How neat! Visit them at we-wood.com.au
