J'adore Dior

I'm back with a post jam packed with vintage gems! Me and my housemate Lee decided to have a vintage shopping day around East London. Here's what I wore.

Jacket // Matalan     Skirt // Beyond Retro     Top // Rokit     Boots // New Look
Rucksack // Accessorize

During my wee trip down to Brighton (here and here) I paid a visit to Beyond Retro. It was my first time in this particular store so I was excited to have a rummage and see what I might find! To my delight, I found this fab denim skirt. I'm a big fan of monochrome so I knew this piece would fit in nicely with the rest of my wardrobe. I love all the little details, like the beautiful buttons running down the sides.


My top is another vintage find, this time from Rokit. This too has cute little details; the different coloured sleeve cuffs and bejewelled 1 on the back. I really do J'adore Dior, especially when it looks this good!



Now, the weather that day was typically English for the middle of summer; bright but wet, so I was super happy I had the chance to wear my new hooded jacket from Matalan. It's lightweight so perfect for these warmer days and I love the stripey interior!

To keep from getting too wet in the rain, we popped into Beyond Retro just off Brick Lane, where we met Tiny the cat. What a pleasure she was. We stopped for some lunch in a sweet little cafe and ventured to Spitalfields, taking in the sights of the colourful graffiti and old posters on the walls. In Spitalfields we came across a shop selling the cutest dresses at sample sale prices.I very quickly fell in love with Jones & Jones and I ended up buying a new dress for my friends wedding, which I'll be showing you all very soon!








I've got a chockablock busy weekend coming up but hopefully I'll have some time to add some more items to my eBay so be sure to check it out.

Thanks for reading. Don't be shy, come say Hi! :)

It's so cute and friendly. Unfortunately she wouldn't fit in my bag...
