Vintage Fair Finds

Dress and shoes – vintage.

Be kind. This is my first outfit post… ever. I’m somewhat of a reluctant model, as you can probably tell.

Yesterday I attended the rather lovely Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair at the Passenger Shed, nextdoor to Temple Meads. I was immediately impressed at the modest entrance fee of Β£2, usually vintage fairs of this size are infinitely more expensive. The Passenger Shed isn’t exactly small, and yet the whole room was packed with treasures, and the lovely musky vintage smell reminiscent of your nana’s wardrobe.

I spend a good hour or so rummaging around by myself, and managed to pick up a few goodies, the first of which is this minty green dress, which I believe is an 80s M&S number. This isn’t exactly the kind of thing that I usually go for, but it was the first dress I picked up and when I saw it was still there on the way out, I had to have it.

On my way back home I stopped off in town to pick up a few bits and walked past another vintage shop, Urban Fox, when I saw someone waving from inside. Turns out my friend from uni works in there now, and I picked up these awesome blue suede shoes (teehee) with a discount! They are originally from Clarks and they are something called ‘softwear’ which I have interpreted as ‘ridiculously comfortable’. What an awesome day of shopping this was turning out to be.

Other items noteworthy of a mention are this totally badass Tabasco apron which I will be wearing to doΒ allΒ of my cooking from now on, and this dark splodge which is actually a faux fur Russian-style hat, perfect for when it gets colder.

I’ve been reading far more fashion blogs recently, which is affecting the way which I look at clothes, and the way that I dress. I’ve always had an passing interest in fashion, but have never really thought about putting outfits together, until now. I’m still a fan of wearing whatever the hell I want, and have found the more I read other people’s blogs the more inspired and adventurous I become.
