Mmmm Vintage

Today was a great success :) I love vintage shopping. The thrill you get when you see something beautiful hanging on the rail followed by the racing heart to see if it fits you and then the overwhelming feeling of joy when it fits like it was made for you! I just don't get that from high street stores.

Shirt, Vest, Cardigan and Bag: Vintage

That was our little shopping group for the day. I got one of the girls in Vintage Guru to take the photo for us. Don't usually have a boy with us but he was the perfect gentleman opening doors for us all day :) While I went shopping specifically to buy fabric I ended up buying 3 headscarf, 2 jumpers, 1 cardigan which I'll wear as a jumper, and a pair of wide legged jeans with detachable dungaree straps all from various vintage shops. Didn't realise how much I had spent till I got home and totalled it all up and all I can say is whooops....

And I bought some vintage fabric! I only found one piece that I liked and that I thought was suitable but I'm happy with it. I was even happier when the lady who owns the shop did me a deal :)

There's enough fabric for a dress and a skirt. I've drawn up some designs for both and I can't wait for them to be finished! Can't decide what I'm going to work on tomorrow...think I'll wait till morning and see which fabric I'm in the mood for.

Hope you all had a good day,
