Hi there lovelies well I'm another year older and still feel fifteen, mentally anyway! The trip to London was lovely we walked until my feet bled, that was mostly due to inappropriate shoes though. Below is some finds and birthday gifts I received.
The blue velvet dress with lilies is from Ben via Etsy and the blue 1930's dress I got from the most wonderful stall at Spitalfields, unfortunately I cannot fit it over my head, I have ridiculously broad shoulders which I never allow for when I am buying clothes, weep. The light green house coat I got from Alfies Market, when I walked in I nearly squealed with delight especially at Tin Tin Collectables, then I got confused why there was long codes on the price tags, oh no they were the prices. £225 for a fox stole? what the, anywho I got the housecoat for £25 as there is a seam which is loose, I am going to where it as a dress as that's how I roll!
This sorry looking dress I got from Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair, it was £10 there is a large rip in the middle but I still had to get it the beading is just breathtaking. Plus its the only thing I could afford I don't know what people's idea of affordable is at these fairs, but averaging at £45 for a dress that ain't cheap.
Nancy Beaton postcard from the Victoria and Albert Museum, I just love it there.
My lovely sister got me some Von Follies by Dita Von Teese underwear and one of her sumptuous red Art Deco lipsticks. And finally have the beautiful Pretty Things book by my style icon Liz Goldwyn.
Last but by no means least Ben got me a signed Anna May Wong picture, I have long adored Anna I did a lot of research on her at uni, wish I had written my thesis on her like I planned too!
