Winter's chill has finally descended upon us causing me to layer everything and put on two pairs of tights and a pair of thick socks, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My Winter Wardrobe is severely lacking in coats and warm things in general so to remedy this my sister and I headed to East End Thrift Store's £1 Sale. I'm not sure if my expectations were far too high this time around, or because the last time I went i had come home with a veritable treasure chest of a bin bag full of great finds but this time round was pretty anti-climatic. The two hour wait to get into the store alone had put a dampener on our morning (doors opened at 11 and we arrived at 10:30 but the queue was crazy!), and by the time we actually got in, the majority of clothes were on the floor, or torn to shreds, no joke! So I didn't leave with as much as I had liked, but I still do recommend it to any one who loves a bit of bargain vintage as much as i do! I now have two pretty smelly, real suede, faux fur lined jackets waiting to be dry-cleaned and worn! For a pound each? You really can't complain too much!
The pictures above were actually taken after the sale, and i think for someone who had been battling through hundreds of people with an arm full of coats, i don't look too shabby haha! Channelling my inner faux Francaise, with this beautiful silk lined Beret from Chidora. Stella, the founder noticed I was on a healthy hair journey kindly sent one of her wonderfully made hats my way and it could not have come at a better time as I've been obsessively pining of Beret's and all things French on my Pinterest boards. Generally when I wear hats, I usually wear a satin bonnet too to protect my hair from rubbing against the fibres of the hat creating breakage, Stella's hat's are lined with pure silk which is awesome. Less bulkiness and a lovely fit, plus no stressing if you can't find your bonnet which is me most mornings and nights.
The dress, I picked up at the Voucher Codes blogger swap shop a few weeks ago and i've worn it about ten times since bringing it home! So perfect! So a huge thank you to whichever blogger this once belonged to!
As always, I hope you're all having a wonderful and very enjoyable week!
