On a beautiful sunny Saturday I had the good fortune of attending my first and not the last £1 vintage sale hosted by the East End Thrift Store near Bethnal Green. Yes you heard that right- two of my favourite things- vintage and the nice price of a round pound. I knew that this was going to be a very fulfilling experience and I wasn’t wrong. Once I got over the initial feeling of being overwhelmed by seeing masses of clothes strewn out over an outdoors yard- (really had to thank God for the weather cos that could have got ugly if it turned!) – my competitive spirit came into force and I was determined to discover some of the finest gems that the sale had to offer and I didn’t fare too badly at all. I actually found some amazing pieces and was even reluctant to put them on here as when people ask the ‘where did you get that ‘ question, I can no longer invent an exotic story, suggest that its designer due to the hard proof on this post that I actually got it for a humble pound. This actually makes it more exciting to me as a am a proud bargain queen- when no exploitation is involved- which is the beauty of vintage! I will definitely be attending the next one of these and will post when I get to wear some of my finds.
I wore vintage dress and jacket from Oxfam and another tiny charity shop both in Liverpool and shoes from a swishing event at my church in Finsbury Park. Paired with Kenyan beaded necklace from my boutique www.realmoftreasure.com.
How cool is this reversible waistcoat!!!
Someone please invite me to a glam cocktail party so I can wear this super kitch and fabulous 80’s dress ASAP!
