I Love To Fool Around


Top - Vintage
Button Down Skirt - Urban Outfitters
Shoes & Socks - Primark
Belt - Vintage eBay

There is a cute little vintage shop around the corner from where I live, and I want it too be my wardrobe.  Most of the pieces there are a bit expensive, including this amazing tan and white cow print bag WITH tan fringing along the bottom.  Like proper cow girl/western/70's style - I wanted it but couldn't justify parting with £40 for a bag that little that I would probably only use on the odd evening/night out.  Damn my rational thinking and spending.  They do have a rather large selection of t-shirts for only a tenner, including this ringer tee.  I love how 70's it looks with the button down skirt.

 Over the years, I have also come to find that eBay is a really good place to find vintage bargains.  Years ago I managed to snap up my vintage fringed leather jacket for only a tenner!  My latest find is this belt - £2.50!  I love the buckle!
