When Life Brings You Lemons - Outfit of the Day

This past weekend I decided enough was enough, I have too many clothes and it was time to find them new homes. Me and Chloe booked our own market stall for the Pop-Up Vintage Fair in Old Spitalfields. We all know I'm a fan of markets, so it was different to be on the other side. Who knew there was so much to prepare before market day!


Disaster struck 30 minutes before the market was set to open when one of our clothing rails snapped! Us being the clever ladies we are, managed to make our own hanging rail with the help of some string and a tall friend - problem solved!



You're probably all thinking "I wonder what Captain Charghley decided to wear for her first market stall?". You're not? Well I'm gonna show you anyway!






This fun lemon print dress I bought from my last visit to the Pop-Up Vintage fair (remember when I won £50 vouchers?) from The Mad Vintage. Mad also writes her own blog, The Mad Journal. I fell in love with this dress instantly. It was the unusual yellow and green colour combination which caught my eye. I'm also a sucker for chiffon, frilly collars and pussy bows, so this dress ticks all the boxes for me! It was fairly cold over the week, I even spotted some snow in the wee hours of the morning, so I thought my faux fur coat would be best. There were also a cardigan and blazer underneath too!

We both managed to sell a couple of our bits, but I still have plenty more items looking for a new home, so keep your eyes peeled over on my eBay. I managed to have a quick look around at the rest of the market, and also restrained from buying any more clothes!









We had a fun, yet somewhat tiring day getting a behind the sense look at running our own market stall. You never know, you might just see us at the next vintage fair on 21st March...

Have you made any amazing market purchases recently? What would you sell if you had your own stall?

Thanks for reading :)

Cute stall, girls! That fur coat is stunning and I love the lemon print pattern. It seems so much fun (apart from the problems you cleverly solved) :-)
