Anyway, I hope everyone has a lovely bank holiday weekend! Although the weather is looking as if it's going to be a bit rubbish. Sunday should be fun - Luke's band are playing in Dickens again, and their last gig was awesome. They seem a lot more confident and relaxed now that they have the set tight. I really enjoyed the gig last night and ran into a lot of old friends who I haven't seen for a very long time!
I just spent over £20.00 at http://www.myvintagecharms.com/. If you like making your own jewellery then this website sells a wide range of vintage style charms from tiny brass Eiffel Towers to alice-in-wonderland cameos. They're beautiful! I've ordered a wide selection - I'm thinking of making my own vintage style necklaces with the charms and pendants I bought! If I sell any on Ebay, I'll be sure to let you know!!
I love it when you discover an outfit at the back of your wardrobe that you haven't worn for ages.... and realise why you loved it so much in the first place!
I did that today.
I bought this dress from Primark (!) about 3 years ago and I still love the style. Plus, I wore it on my first date with Luke 2 1/2 years ago!! The golden sandals were from Barretts bought around 2 summers ago, the satchel is vintage and was an Ebay find! The necklace is the owl one that I featured in this post
Today's find is http://www.modcloth.com/ - I was hooked the minute I laid eyes on their delightful banner - and that was before i even began browsing their adorable dresses!!
All are affordable - similar to high street prices you'd find in places like Topshop and Mango - the main problem for me would be that I'd have to pay for shipping on top of that. Some of their 'sale' items may tempt me though!!!
I came across Mod Cloth while I was searching for new online vintage shops, and found their site as they have a vintage section. Unfortunately, every item appeared to already have been bought and no matter what I sorted the clothing by (most love, price, a-z) everything still appeared to be 'sold'. Frustratingly, there's no option to sort the clothes by what's available, but perhaps that's because nothing was!! Out of the items there are, the ones I most wished had been available were the two dresses below.
Despite the lack of vintage items, the site is definitely worth a visit. I've only featured my favourite dresses here but Mod Cloth also carries a range of tops, trousers, skirts, knits, swimwear accessories and shoes.
