Shopping for Vintage


Today I went to Winchester to do some retail therapy with a friend. As some of you may already know, I LOVE Winchester, it's beautiful, so it was great to visit somewhere pretty for the day! We ate at Slug and Lettuce which was tasty - I got that delicious Rekorderlig Christmas cider again!


A sad Christmas Tree

Although I'm SUPPOSED to be saving money...I did make some purchases today. I shopped in vintage and charity shops however and so managed to get my mits on a dress, two shirts and a jacket all for just £50!


I got this dress from a quaint little vintage store called Charming Magpies. I actually first saw and fell in love with it about 6 months ago but didn't have the money at the time so left it....when I saw it again today, I knew it was meant to be! The straps are detachable to so shall have to try it out strapless soon. 


 Vintage dress: £35 Charming Magpies

After browsing in Charming Magpies, where my friend also bought a gorgeous black dress, we went into the charity shops along Parchment street and I found these three beauties! 

 Vintage cream blouse: £7.50 Cancer Research

Check shirt: £5 Cancer Research
 Blazer: £5 Charity shop (Don't remember which sorry!)

I'll try to get some outfit posts up as an when I wear these items...think I'm going to wear the blazer in a punkish style as the bright colours could make it look a little crazy! I'm going to my friend's flat tomorrow for a day of "wine and photos"...could be interesting!

What I wore
Faux fur hat: £22 Topshop
Sleeveless blouse: £25 Urban Outfitter
Cardigan: Vintage
Coat: £2 Charity sho
Jeans: £40 Topshop
Shoes: £40 NEXT
