Vintage Shopping in London...

One of my favourite past times is vintage shopping and thrifting! It has been quiet some time since I have posted my finds up on my blog but now I am living in London (THE place to get all the best vintage pieces!) I am hoping to be writing many more blog posts on my favourite subject matter!

I attended a vintage fair at Clerkenwell last weekend and bought my first London purchase - this printed maxi shirt dress. I adore the autumnal colour stripes and can't wait to pair it with some cute little ankle boots for the winter season!

70's style shirt dress...

Mixture of spots and stripes makes this dress unique and unusual...

Today I explored Brick Lane and found so many vintage shops! I am quiet suprised I only came away with this item, but my new shopping theory is unless I can't live without it I shouldn't buy it!!

I came across the hugely popular This Shop Rocks on Brick Lane and it does exactly what it says on the tin - it rocks!! And the best part of the shop? The 'Everything £10 and under' section in the basement! One customer found an amazing 1920's style pale pink coat in immaculate condition for £10! Being attracted to print and 70's style clothing, I discovered this little gem:

Boho maxi dress £10

Multicoloured stripes make a 'wow' statement...

It may be a little wacky and over the top for some, but its the whole boho look that I love and the multi coloured stripes really make a statement! I'll be teaming it with a chunky knitted cardigan (vintage!) for now and then with beaded sandals and millions of bangles for the summer!

Stone detail necklace £2

Completely addicted to jewellery and necklaces in particular, I spied this one in Primark! Long and hippy inspired, this quirky piece just had to be added to my increasing collection of all things shiny!

Aztec Blanket Cape £10

Aztec prints are everywhere this season and the blanket cape has been a key piece to update your winter wardrobe. For just £10 Primark's take on the staple item is divine! It can be worn as a cape, an extra long scarf or as a wrap around to snuggle into on those cold winter mornings!

Happy Shopping
