winter wardrobe sorted

I bought rather a lot on my last trip to London. Yes, in a "oh, shit, I appear to have dipped into my New York funds" kind of way. I went with the intention of finding a velvet dress (I plumped for a knee length red skirt which I have since taken up) and more importantly a pair of Brown Justin boots. (I've been looking since April) Seriously have considered incorporting religion into my life after the perfect pair of boots made their way into my hands, for just £35 at Spitalfields market. I died.


pink candy striper shirt

jersey floral romper

topshop tartan bra

'Alaska' sweater

silky coral pleated skirt

grey wool schoolgirl skirt

red velvet skirt

"sovereign of the seas" cruise tee

the romper, the bra and the laceups are to die for... in fact, I want to wear them all together!

All of these things are just wonderful! You're a lucky girl. The pleated skirt is probably my favourite thing, it reminds me of the 1920s.

love the vintage finds. i have this mythical feeling about london vintage like it's incomparable to anywhere else's. all the history and all the people living there. whether or not it's true i guess i'll have to make a trip over.

i adore that plaid bra. is it flannel, vintage? $hearts;

great shopping!

Pearl Westwood said...

Ah that is the shopping law, when you are saving up and not wanting to spend you will find so many wonderful things you have to buy, but when you have some money to spend you just wont see anything you want! That printed shirt it amazing!
