Earlier this week, my old housemate Lee told me she had a dream that I came to visit her in Brighton. This prompted me to do just that, and today seemed like a very appropriate day as Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair was making camp at the Corn Exchange in the lovely British seaside city. The train tickets were booked and all I needed to worry about this morning was what to wear?! I decided to go full vintage.
This simply adorable orange checked woolen dress I picked up at the last Rumble in the Jumble put on by The Music Circle, for a bargain price of £7! I layered it over a tan chiffon shirt from Primark and yellow tights from Accessorize. My outfit was finished with my favourite pair of vintage boots by Bally, which I picked up from Absolute Vintage, a floral & snakeskin effect bag from Stylist Pick and this Wanderlust watch from Elsie & Fred.
So to the vintage fair we headed where we lunched on chocolate Oreo & Red Velvet cakes, tea in cute cups & saucers and Coca Cola in vintage-esque glass bottles. We had a little wander around the stalls and picked up some vintage delights, including my sweet little question mark ring (Riddle me this…), a Christmas present for my Mum (you’ll have to wait until the big day before I reveal what it is!), and Lee’s Hamsa ring & black fedora hat, all from Minimum Mouse who are offering 10% your first order using the code ‘HAPPYSHOPPER’.
After we were all shopped out, we took a walk down the lanes, which of course involved a visit to Snoopers Paradise and a go on their photobooth. We finished with a stroll down to the sea front where the skies were becoming dramatic and stormy – picture perfect!
What did everyone get up to this weekend? I’ll be back to share my Halloween look soon.
