outfit 3

Silk top : Thrifted
Skirt : Internacionale
Belt : Hand-made by my brother
Shoes : Thrifted
Necklace : Thrifted (Victorian lace)
So i ventured out of my back garden, I knew of a great little abandon building in the cemetery up the road from me and decided to be a little more confident and snap away. I really love my little brogue heels they are perfect for adding a touch of vintage to any outfit i picked them up about 2 years ago from the salvation army shop in falmouth for wait for it...50p. I just had to have them, my feet are a size 2/3 so i can never ever find shoes to fit me in charity shops so you can guess how happy i was when i found these, they are my favorite pair of shoes, they are a beautiful camel leather colour. This is just a simple summer outfit that i often wear, normally with a little cardigan but the one i was wearing was a little boring, so i decided to no cardigan pictures. I spent most of the day at work, a little bit un-inspired, but i naughtily bought a new watercolour moleskin sketchbook for my painting day tomorrow so keep an eye out for my new paintings. I have a few new pieces and i will be revealing my new vintage shop this week, i am rather excited about it. i have been dieing to share all the little piece i have found with everyone. Also i will be doing a little post about how to be thrifty and how to make the most of vintage shopping. I am also on the search for new and exciting hairdos i am a bit bored of the hair down (scruffy look) so if anyone has any great links i would very much appreciate it. 
 I hope everyone is having a good sunday?

  16. I love this Ella, your hair looks pretty too. Those shoes are amazing! 50p! That's crazy o.o Some times I do feel like I should give them an extra bit of money for something but then I'm worried that they will start raising prices and what not, which isn't bad because all the money goes to charity and what not but some near me are charging fortunes for bits and pieces!
