I'm gonna spam you with photos.
Yes, my pockets are GREEN VELVET.
Day 6 of our 'Days of fun' series has been in my eyes one of the best so far. Aimee and I spent the day in Brick Lane, it was my first time there, but I'll definately be going back more often, and soon. Although some of the shops and markets were not as cheap as Portobello market or some vintage fairs, we got some pretty awesome bargains and the atmosphere was buzzing and of course the food was fabulous!
My first buy was the gold cross brooch (see photo 3), which I got for £3, and I wore it straight away, as it married with the colour of my cardigan. And becuase I love it so much. Aimee bought the ammmmazing faux fur coat (photo 10) for a super £20! If only you could feel it....it's so so soft. I'm not usually a coat person (I prefer to freeze in the British weather in a cosy cardigan or chunky jumper), but the 2 coats I bought were the best I have ever bought. The first was the huge black mens pea coat with a chunky collar (I wear the collar up to feel powerful...) and the second was the coat above, I think it's sheepskin, and has leather lapels and green velvet pockets! Granted, not as soft and silky as Aimee's faux fur, but I love it anyway. I found it in the last market we visited, which is by FAR the biggest, so we were pretty gutted that we found it towards the end of the day, when we had practically spent all our money...
Lunch was a pad thai for Aimee and a falafel wrap for me, followed by music, courtesy of the awesomely dressed people in the video, looked like they were making a music video...which would be pretty awesome, seeing as Aimee got in the shot a few times...
The last 2 photos were taken in a mirrored window, and it wasn't until we had finished taking them when we realised that people we inside who could see us. Daym.
Fiiinally, I would like to explain the change in layout of my blog. I was messing around with the template, and accidently changed it back to the old one, back to the old template with the blue polkadots...I hated it. So I stayed up trying to get it back, with no luck, so I settled with this one, and although I'm not completely happy with it, I thought a change would be good. What do you think- should I keep it or change it again?
OH and we saw Sandra from 5 inch and up in Absolute Vintage. Highlight of the day.
