what I wore antique shopping...

The other day me and mum took a trip to my favourite vintage antiques center to see if we could find some exciting pieces to fill my studio with. It was such a lovely day, and as you guessed it I took alot of photos which I will be sharing with you soon.
I thought I would share with you what I wore for our vintage shopping trip. The shirt which i am wearing as a coat was a purchase from my day out with lyzi, from Rokit in london. I have been living in my Tk Maxx jumper its the cosiest thing I own. The fur collar was my new amazing purchase from H & M that I am in love with it makes ever outfit beautiful. I am on the hunt at the moment for the perfect satchel that will match my old Topman satchel, as the I can see the straps breaking soon, I could always get my brother to repair it, as now he is a apprentice case maker for Simpson, London, I am so proud of him for what he has achieved, but i am thinking of investing in a proper leather satchel.
Our day was pretty wonderful, filled with browsing vintage clothes, antique furniture and drinking lots of hot chocolate, my favourite kind of day out.
In other news I have taken the plunge and made a facebook page for this here little blog it would be fab if you could like it. You can find it here Ella.
