an afternoon with lyzi

What Lyzi wore : Hat / topshop, shoes / DMs, Coat / Edinburgh wollen mill, Bag / Vintage, Skirt / Primark, Top /  Lazy Oaf
What Ella wore : Snood / Primark, shoes / Office, Bag / Topman, Top / Charity shop, High waisted jeans / Newlook 

So on wednesday me and lyzi met up for an afternoon hanging out in East End and go to the next press event, I haven't seen Lyzi since we went to Paris. We had lunch at one of my favourite Chip shops in London, we stuffed our faces with lots of chips whilst listening to vintage tunes. We somehow managed to short change the chippy, even though we put down etc the waiter chased out into the street to find us, all very confusing and slightly amusing. 
It was so lovely to spend time with lyzi again and doing a bit of vintage shopping was the best way to spend a Wednesday, I took my little instax camera and snapped a few pictures which i will be sharing soon. 
We thought we would make the most of the amazing graffiti that you can often find in the East End how cute does lyzi look in her Halloween Inspired outfit. My outfit really wasn't that halloween inspired but underneath my sheer charity shop top I wore my skull Wheels and dollbaby top, I haven't worn it since I was like 14, how lovely is this skull top by them. 
Anyway we ventured into lots of lovely Vintage shops to have a little browse, I picked up a rather lovely flannel/plaid style mens shirt that I have decided to wear as a jacket, I shall show you all soon. Lyzi found the little green tartan cape in Rokit and she fell in love with it but couldn't justify the £50 price tag so we decided to snap some photos in the changing room. 
After spending a few hours in vintage shopping with my lovely Lyzi we decided to head to the next press day event which I will share with you soon.

  7. This looks amazing! The cape is gorgeous, but £55 is a bit much. I have lived in London for two years, and still haven't ventured to the East End yet! This needs to be rectified. I read your blog posts on Google reader, and promised I'd comment during half term ( I never seem to have the time!).
    Keep up the posts, I love reading them. The jumper is amazing too!!

  13. It really irks me that vintage clothes are so expensive in London. It's a beautiful cape, what a shame! Years ago I remember seeing a gorgeous alligator clutch in Camden market, which was up for £50. The guy wouldn't budge and I couldn't justify it. I still think about it though!
