Peggy Lee & New Accessories…

Like most women, I’m a sucker for a great handbag. However, perhaps unlike most women I find that handbags is the only area of wardrobe in which some snobbery comes into play.
 
I simply refuse to buy high street bags, as it really bugs me when I see someone else with the same bag as me!
 
I know – it’s a ridiculous mentality!
Especially when you consider the amount of Topshop (uniforms!) I have rammed on my clothes rails…
 
Just give me a great vintage bag any day, hands down more character and charm! And generally speaking…considerably cheaper too!
 
This outfit features a new Topshop blouse…
 


The skirt is from ‘The Barn’ in Newbury – a huge vintage warehouse that always produces little treasures after a good rummage!


The head scarf is from Beyond Retro in Brighton, my faux fur stole is H&M and the ring is Topshop.


How adorable is the scallop detailing on this blouse? I instantly bought it!


A close up of the handbag…it’s just so fabulous! I think 2011 may hold an ‘Absolute Vintage’ obsession…that place is heavenly!


More soon my lovelies!
 
Love Yours Truly, x

  3. Amazing blouse, I’m going back to work at Topshop and can tell i will end up spending a pretty prenny there! I definitely prefer vintage bags too, I’m very fussy as I want a bag to be leather and most high-street bags aren’t. I’ve always found bargainous bags in charity shops and flea markets, and I prefer their individuality.

  8. You are just the prettiest, first of all! And I very much agree with you about bags. I had someone who knows I’m “into fashion” ask me about cleaning their high fashion bag, and I dumbfoundedly told them I had no idea and never bought expensive purses. haha
