I have had such a lovely day. I popped down to my local vintage fair to have a rummage and meet Ella from Belle Vintage. If you do not know this blogger, I highly recommend you pop over and click your follow button! We have been emailing to and fro all week about rings and suchlike (she's been giving me great advice on a bigcartel shop: more to come on that) so it was lovely to meet the face behind the computer. I did promise myself I wouldn't spend any money, but inevitably there was too much lovely stuff not to buy anything.

01. rust colour over sized cardigan £14. I've been wanting an over sized cardigan for ages, but in a mulberry colour. However, on my second rifle through Belle Vintage rails, I discovered this lovely orange cardigan which I couldn't quite resist. It is pretty oversized on me, but so comfy and I'm not sure it'll be leaving my side for a couple of weeks.

02. red St Michael shirt £12. I was debating between this and a pussybow blue blouse, but the colour just attracted me too much. It is over sized for me, but I just the love the boldness of the colour and the material is so silky smooth. Plus £12, what a bargain compared to the high street versions around at the moment.

So, you can consider me a convert to vintage, and I hope I might be able to do some outfit posts at some point to accompany these photos. Head over to Belle Vintage and have a look at her stock - if you're a fan of blazers or scarves I can guarantee you will find something you love!

  2. I will try to do an outfit post on it at some point; I admit I only realised my camera has a self timer on for outfit posts today! It's a gorgeous piece and I'll be tempted to dress it simply with black underneath.
