Well I did not expect to find anything at the Discover Vintage Fair at Victoria Baths, especially because there wasn't many stalls. However the first store I looked at I clocked a gorgeous 1930s evening gown, it was a bit tatty but still beautiful. I thought for a laugh I would look at the price tag, and when I saw it was just £30 I grabbed it, much to the amusement of my boyfriend and sister; 'Are you not going to try it on?' me: 'No I love it and I can just hang it in my room if it doesn't fit'. The stall owner knew she had priced it way below what it was worth but was selling it for a friend, it is so gorgeous. You cannot really tell but it is a light dusty blue, with gorgeous pearl drop detail, and pearl buttons.
I think I will have the Miss Havisham look for this dress, waiting for my beloved who will never come.
I have been after a slip for ages now, I am forever watching them on eBay but they are always a bit too pricey, but I got this lovely light blue one for £5, and this playtex bra for just £3, bargains.
I shall be channelling Maggie when I wear my knew under garments.
I have a penchant for canvas bags, particularly when I go on holiday so could not help myself when I saw this in the gift shop.
This 1940s dress is just so sweet, it is slightly see through but at least I have a slip now. It was £35 from the Vintage Emporium stall I also got the slip from them too, the ladies were lovely and informed me that they have a store in York, which I think I will be visiting soon.
This is how I plan to look in the dress, I do not want Ashley at all though, only Rhett.
I have still been daydreaming about getting an Edwardian day dress, and this 1970s dress is the closest I have to it now, it is too big but looks quite nice on, in a kind of creepy girl from a Japanese horror film way.
I will come out of your television, wearing this dress.
Have you found any treasures recently? do you buy things that you know you should probably not wear everyday? because I do.
