Vintage goodies – a new dress, cape and jacket.


So these purchases are a little old now, I’ve probably had them for about a month. But my camera’s given up the ghost and I’ve managed to lose the cable for my phone somewhere so it’s taken me ages to get them on the computer. Apologies for the shoddy quality of these but I wanted to show you!

I love, love, love the pattern of this dress. It feels so autumnal as soon as I put it on! I’ve worn it a few times and tend to wear it in the same way – with my brown Primark riding boots, sometimes a tan belt, big earrings and my hair up. It’s just so easy to wear and was in the sale at Cow so I got it for a massive bargain.

I thought this was the perfect jacket for work with its cute collar, buttons and houndstooth pattern. So far I’ve only worn it once but I reckon I’ll get tonnes more use out of it in the spring when it’s warm enough to just wear this over a little dress. Check out Dammit Janet here.

And finally! This is Sherlock my beautiful cape. Again, apologies for the absolutely shoddy quality but it’s a dark green and black pattern with flecks of lighter colours through. I absolutely fell in love with it and as soon as I had it on I knew it had to be mine. It goes so well with my boots and I know it’s something I will keep for years and years. So beauts.

Vintage fair and a little bit of a catch up…


Well it’s been another crazy mad week for me with plenty of work and a little play thrown in for good measure, a night out with the momma bear, moving house, the vintage fair and probably much more I’ve forgotten!

As always I didn’t come away empty handed from the fair but I managed to restrain myself to just one purchase – a lovely cushion made by my friend Emily from vintage fabric which matches the colour scheme in my new room.

Anyone in Redditch should definitely pop down to the fair on Saturdays 10-4 as it’s amazing. Not only have you got Forever Vintage – Emily’s range of beautiful cushions, tea sets and cake stands – but there’s also some fab vintage clothes and homeware.

Strike a pose…


So this was a bit of a change for me! My friend Amy’s blog (vintagereflection) always has posts featuring really cool locations and outfits as she’s a whizz at all things fashion, vintage and styling. So when she invited me along to take part in one of the shoots, this is what happened!

You can see some of the shots of the pair of us in my earlier post. This is pretty much a Primark outfit with a bit of vintage and a bit of Topshop, as per usual!
