Radio Days

Hello!

Sorry I've been a bit quiet. I had an incident Thursday after work involving a man with a flick blade. I am A-OK but it has shaken me up a wee bit.

Anyway, on a lighter note, I was recently introduced to a wonderful vintage shop just around the corner from Waterloo station. What I loved most about this place was the amazing service. Each time I've been, one of the owners Lee has been there and he is an absolute pleasure! On my first visit I bought a super cute 60's style tartan skirt and a mint green jumper with a sweet collar detailing. Here I am wearing the skirt.


I was instantly drawn to this skirt, not just for the tartan pattern, but because of the unique fastening. The laced up front does give it a slight 70's feel to it. I paired it with a plain H&M t-shirt, a burgundy boyfriend cardigan originally from Topman but bought from a charity shop, a bronze bejewelled heart necklace from New Look, knee high cream socks, brown boots and a brown ribbon in my hair.


I really do love the fit of this skirt!

On my second visit to Radio Days, I popped in with my camera and asked Lee if I could take a few snaps for the blog. He very kindly said yes. Here's a little bit of what you can expect to see.











This shop has a little bit of everything; magazines, homeware, woman's clothing, men's clothing, even vintage kids clothing (check out the mini leather jacket!). Whilst I was walking around snapping these shots, I noticed a beautiful yellow embellished shift dress. It was a couple of days before pay day, so I told myself, if I was meant to have the dress, then it will still be there in a few days time...and it was! I'll be showing it off very soon :)

That's all for today. Thanks for reading and stay safe!!
