I based my outfit on a pair of textured black skinny trousers (unfortunately the amazing black-on-black pattern doesn’t photograph very well!) teamed with a beautiful velvet smock dress from Monsoon, that I found for a snip on eBay.
My cardigan is H&M, the coffee pot necklace was my Nanna’s and the scarf worn on my head was a thrifty find from Berlin.
I hope you’re all enjoying your week. Northern hemisphere readers can take heart that Spring is on it’s way!
More very soon – I have some interesting bits to show you all!
Love Yours Truly, x
Ps. HUGE thank you to Becca for capturing such beautiful photos in the cold!
My socks even have fringing too! A cheeky H&M find! I love that the dress and socks both have such movement to them – it certainly makes dancing a lot of fun! I’m also really happy that the weather has now become that little bit warmer so that bare legs are an option again! Yay!
And here’s the whole ensemble, in one of the only photos where I don’t look like I’m about to be blown away (pesky wind!)
For the start of the day (after watching a few episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’ in bed – is anyone else obsessed?!) we had another peruse around the antique shops of Lewes, as most of them had been closed when we went the first time round.
Look at this amazing selection of goodies!
The rooms are a delight to walk through, it’s just such a pity that in general, I found it all to be quite over priced. Boo!
I loved this little corner of one particular shop, there were ships in glass bottles leading all the way up the nearby staircase too…
We then headed home for a really exciting evening!
Our dear friend Tiago (the lovely chap we stayed with in Portugal) had his first EP launch, with his solo-project-turned-band ‘Time For T’
The EP is called ‘Dream Bug’ (artwork by Kim Crime) and hasn’t left my ears for a good three days or so!
Thanks for letting me share this with you all. I’m very fond of these boys and their music, so it felt right to show to you all too!
More soon, including the Vintage Nation photos!
Love Yours Truly, x
