Do some of these pictures look slightly familiar? A little while ago I made a long-awaited trip back to Battersea Boot Fair, which holds a special place in my heart due to the fact that it inspired my graduate collection. Even though my journey there took longer than usual (never take a bus anywhere in South London), I still managed to pick up three skirts for the bargain price for £6 within 15 minutes of looking around. I never know what to expect when I turn up and luckily I’m rarely disappointed. Do you have much luck at car boot sales? It’s my favourite purely because it starts at midday and only really starts to get busy after 1pm, which is perfect for my lazy Sunday routine!
Afterwards, I couldn’t resist hijacking Jazmine’s room and taking a few photos in the picture-perfect setting she’s created. I don’t want to spoil things and hopefully she’ll do a bedroom post soon, as the décor suits her personality well with it’s variously arranged knick-knacks and vintage furniture. I do love a good nosey at other peoples living spaces and it was great to see all of her Vogue magazines and thoughtfully curated wardrobe. I hope that I can be as organised one day!
Dress – Motel
Tights – Topshop
Clarks smart shoes – c/o Spartoo
I’ve had this dress for ages now and thought it was about time that it got another outing. Although I’m often drawn to a striped dress, they can often be far from flattering if the waist isn’t in the right place and I love the gentle fit and flare shape of this style. My mint tights were the ideal update and my new Clarks shoes kept everything Spring-like on a sunny Sunday afternoon. I’ve loved the cut-work detail ever since I saw the adverts which feature them (Harriet owns them too) and I’m sure that I’ll be wearing them loads this summer, if not purely to incite better weather. Now when it comes to bags, I tend to veer towards a more classic style and I jumped at the chance to receive a lovely new bag from Jane Shilton to add to my collection. It bears similar hallmarks to some of the vintage styles I have, with plenty of handy compartments for all my junk. Hopefully I will now be able to find everything easily instead of my typical ‘Where’s me keys..where’s me phone?’ routine!
I must say that I was very impressed with how the photos turned out by Jazmine’s trademark brick wall and I’m hoping to make a return visit soon!
