Vintage Fashion Fayre…

Firstly I apologise for the shoddy title of this post but I am far to tired and in desperate need of a bath to care….

After my intern today I went to meet my partner in crime, Chez at Bond Street tube station so we could go to the Reiss sample sale together. Well at six in the evening I have to admit I was not expecting a cue, although it did only take about 15mins. Well once inside it felt a bit like a cattle market. There was hardly any room to move let alone breathe, it was like a sweat pit. By this point, even though it was very early in, I had lost the plot and given up. I can’t stand hot and cramped places!! There was nothing decent left in our sizes so we did feel a bit disappointed. Plus so many people were coming out with bags we were expecting great things. But the clothes were stained and damaged….sigh….

Things however, did get a lot better. We hot footed it over to LCF where there was a little vintage fashion fayre taking place. We paid our 50p entry fee and rummaged for the goodies. Now I know I have been on a self imposed shopping ban but I let myself off for the evening. We were both pretty excited and got some fab buys..


I am sure I’ve seen this jumper before but I completely fell in love with it…got the skirt below from the same girl but the partner in crime decided it would work better as a dress…..jumper £5 and skirt £4…thought I’d try to show the movement in the dress…


This dress came without the slip but I love the way the sheer flower print contrasts with the lace trim..£5 and finally this cute top £5…Isn’t the netted bib top cute…

Also have to say on the way out some ladies were selling some really decent designer vintage items. I fell in love with a Christian Lacroix blue and white jacket. It had gold buttons, stripes and perspex pockets…if only I had the £85.

    Wow you got some great stuff. I really like the netted bid top. It would look perfect with a high waisted skirt.
