Back to vintage…

winter_walk_005winter_walkI’m back to vintage, after having a “I love the high street phase” I’m itching to dress head to toe in vintage again. Long time followers of my blog, will  know that I have these phases but my true love lies with vintage and thrift clothing. It’s nice to pop into Topshop and just buy an item without searching or altering it before wearing. Also I get put off traipsing around flea markets and charity stores in the winter months, especially when it’s tipping it down outside. When you can visit a shopping center and its all nicely indoors for you… But the vintage bug is back, I’m hoping in February we’ll go on a thrifting shopping trip over at Brick Lane (for my Birthday!). Which also as many of you have requested, I’m starting researching and compiling a vintage shopping guide, so watch this space!!
winter_walk_044winter_walk_029These photos were taken on a brief sunny spell last Sunday. We met up with my friend Allen and his two puppies (sadly no photos this time -they were too muddy & excitable) and headed to the common. We sillily didn’t think about how rainy it had been the day before and our shoes got covered in mud! I really need to invest in some stylish wellington boots. I went for a throw it all on look, started with the dress, adding the scarf and bag then at the last minute grabbing my hat. I do love a good hat and feel strange without one! winter_walk_013winter_walk_048What I’m wearing –

    I really like that scarf! The print reminds me of an old classic Gucci dress. Looking great!
