Carousel… – Yours Truly

I wrote last week about how Joshua and I had run frantically home from the bus stop so that I could get to the laptop in time to bid for an item. Well it was this beautiful dress! Which by some miracle I managed to win, having got to the auction with forty seconds remaining! Phew! Talk about a close one! But I just KNEW I had to have it!

The beautiful little carousels that adorn this Ruby Rox dress are so similar to a design I created in my second year at University, and I suppose it’s for that reason mainly (since that collection I became pretty obsessed with old fashion fairgrounds!) that I adored this little number so much!

I’m wearing it with my new Modcloth polka dot tights, some brogue heels (oh my!) from eBay and the little vanity case I picked up last weekend in Snoopers Paradise.

How adorable are these little shoes? I couldn’t find anything to wear them with for ages, then this dress came along and it was a match made in wardrobe heaven!

We had spent the day just ambling about Brighton as we normally do! Popping in to say hello to friends…

If that doll hadn’t been so silly expensive (£25!!) it definitely would have come home with us! Truth is there was so much we wanted to come home with us as well! This is my favourite stall…There’s always something I want there!

And in this instance it was this gorgeous vintage bamboo suitcase, in such wonderful condition too!

I was also really taken with this glass head! Though I really couldn’t tell you why!

In the end I just bought a few seaside photographs for my collection, and a cute floral dinner plate for my when-I-move-out-again-box! Being stupid with GIANT leaves…
A little meander through the Saturday market (where Josh bought a vintage 1970’s Levis shirt!) I love the peacock fire grate…

And an oggle at some Quadrophenia style mopeds…

Before popping into Beyond Retro, where our friend Joe (the singer in Josh’s band) works…He always looks like he just walked out of the 70’s! Few can pull that off so well!

And then a bit of heartbreak before heading home 🙁 I’ve seen these gorgeous dalmatian shoes all over the internet, even though they’re quite rare. They are normally so expensive, and I must admit my heart leapt when I saw a pair in front of me! But alas…they were a size 6 and I’m teeny size 4.

Lots coming soon lovelies! I’m starting to get into the swing of my new job and the time it allows me for blogging!
