Well first of all! The outfit!
I found this fabulous felt hat in Absolute Vintage, Brick Lane.
The shirt was bought without a thought, I knew I loved it’s garish britishness instantly!
And for one pound? Well it would be terribly rude not to!
My sister gave me the cardigan in trade for one that I no longer wore, and the shorts are from my Topshop uniform.
As of late, I find myself spending more and more time in Brighton.
It’s like London without the fumes, rudeness and with a beach thrown in for good measure!
I love waking up to the sound of seagulls outside, having a little cooked breakfast in a side street cafe, before meandering about the Lanes, where all the vintage, boutique and book shops can be found.
One of my favourite places to explore whilst milling about the Lanes, is ‘Snoopers Paradise’.
A huge treasure trove of stalls filled to the brim with vintage oddities.
Each stall is packed full of interesting little bits and pieces, that definitely require a ‘snoop’!
There is also furniture, clothing and hundreds of books available, as well as accessories, homeware, photos, paintings and records.
I loved these vintage cookbooks!
And I longed to take all these fabulous penguin books home with me! (sorry for the blurry photo!)
If you ever find yourself heading towards Brighton (and I would strongly recommend that you do!) Then Snoopers is definitely worth a visit from any vintage loving lady!
Love Yours Truly, x
