On Sunday I ventured out in the cold to a Vintage Fair at St Stephen’s near Belsize Park.
It was definitely worth the effort, and I would love to give Soph, from Bamble Vintage, a big thank you for inviting me to the fair and letting me know about it!

Today I went back to London. I’m seriously in love in with that city (but I know there are many other places here that I will fall in love with).

It’s no secret. I love vintage clothes. If I could afford to buy true vintage constantly, I would. But unfortunately, vintage clothes are getting more and more expensive.

Today was the day I decided to bare my gorgeous, bright white legs to the sun. Kind of. I actually wore a pair of seamed, skin coloured stockings so as not to hurt anyones eyes.

Today I thought I’d finally get my 1950s wiggle skirt out of my wardrobe and see if there was anything I could wear it with. I ended up pairing it with a pair of black seamed stocking (from the Warehouse for only $16!) and a blouse from Smoove Reworked Vintage. The shoes are from the 1940s and made of velvet.

It is hard to think of reasons why anyone would want to be a Flapper. NOT! Flappers may be from the 1920s but they were from a time of societal change.
