RD day one

This morning I woke up feeling fresh and ready to start my new life on my RD. I decided to make a positive start and ease myself into the process by checking out The Valley Markets for some amazing vintage finds.

The amount of good quality stores there has been steadily increasing over the years (even though it's been around for ages) and I was pleasantly greeted by an array of vintage stalls. This put me in a great mood even before my morning coffee. First, I rummaged through piles of badges, skirts, blouses and silk scarfs. Pulling myself out of my daze I realised this was not what I was looking for. I was looking for a tu-tu, beat up boots, something white and lacey and a fur.


I could sit here for hours telling you all the miniscule details of my shop today, including vintage Emanuel Ungaro pants (similar to ones I own already, but because they weren't mine, they were automatically awesomer), bag after bag after bag, amazing jewelry, head pieces, a silk blouse reminiscent of the digital print used in Friederich Gray's latest Transgression collection, and shoulder padded blazers as far as the eye could see... but I'll just show you what I bought instead.


Excuse the bad quality photos. I had to decide between awkwardly contorting my body to get a snap with my blackberry, or standing in front of my boyfriend's Mac. I chose the latter.


midriff lace blouse $10
leather shorts $15

floral skinny jeans $35
