A vintage bag and my first attempt at an outfit post...



Before I went off on holiday I went to a couple of local charity shops with my Mum. She was looking for a skirt, I was just along for the ride.
Now,I never find anything in charity shops ever. Maybe I am going to the wrong ones.But imagine my delight at finding this little beauty! A cute sophisticated clip bag for £2.70. I was even more excited to find some receipts and a bus ticket dating from 1979-1980 in the pocket.
Naturally,as soon as I got home I felt the need to construct an outfit around it



Dress: a sample off Ebay, Shoes: Topshop
Please excuse my poor photography and the mess in my room! I'm gutting it out at the moment! I came back off holiday to find that my Dad had outdone me in the charity shop stakes by finding one of those tweed country gentleman jackets which are worth about £200- for the same price as my bag. Well done, Dad!
Tomorrow I have a Creative Writing workshop in Coventry, and then I am meeting the bf in Birmingham to watch Tropic Thunder and then have a meal at the lovely Pizza Express. I am still umming and ahhing over what to wear... and I feel it may have to be my recently delivered vintage dress off Etsy!
