So I got my little mits on a copy of the September issue of Vogue this morning. I was going upstairs for my 15 minute break and saw it there in the magazine stand. I perhpas should have waited until my 30 minute break but I couldn’t. There’s something quite funny about buying Vogue with you’re hair tied up in a ‘I need to get it off my face’ kind of way and I was in my M&S uniform.

Sat there in the staff room with my chocomilk I was having a great time reading, wishing I had sticky notes with me. Oh well, i’m working tomorrow.

So what are the key trends for this season. Well I could have told you before buying vogue but here;
* androgynous
* sixties
* fetish
* over-sized
* checks/heritage
* jewel colours

I think what made me happiest when reading was the article on blanket and capes. Last year I bought a red tartan cape from Henry Holland. I love it sooo much. It was one I kept seeing in the posters but could never find it and then one day, there it was in the Debenhams in Preston.

 

Here’s me in mine…

I think it’s quite a wintery/Christmas look.  That’s the good thing about being in Preston, it gets cold enough to wrap up.  In Cornwall it just gets wet.  I love warpping up and what’s a better way than in a blanket cape.  

Capes are still in so dust yours off from last year.  If you don’t have one…errr get one, perfect for the colder months.

So recently I have decided to sell a few things on eBay. I’m moving rooms at home from my current bedroom to an attic conversion and I don’t really want to transfer all my clutter.

Besides it was genuinely stuff I don’t wear anymore.  As well as this, some were vintage pieces that i don’t really I don’t really like that much.

I know I said I’d never want to get rid of clothes but I’m kepping the stuff forever that I think i’ll look back on in 30 years time and be like i’m glad I kept that.  No doubt i’m selling the stuff I will actually want in 30 years time!

So, i’ve sold 7 pieces and made £23 profit. Not too shabby plus I have sooo much more room now.  Well a little after my new buys…

I’ve bought a cricket jumper! It’s not quite like the one I originally had in mind but I like it and I’ve wanted one for ages.  Like a whole year.  I originally wanted a long one I could wear as a dress but my friend called me a tart at that so I changed my mind!

When I saw lots of shops like New Look and Internacionale and I changed my mind.  Anyway, i finally bit the bullet and bought one for £3.20 on eBay!!

I intend to team it with a dark polo shirt.  I have a ‘Lacoste’ one from Turkey and it’s only purpose is to wear it underneath something and maybe shorts because I don’t wear jeans.  

While I was in London, i went to Camden but in recent years, I have been going off Camden.  I would take myself off and just not find anything I specifically liked or felt inspired by.  

This time though, I went with my Mum and sister and my Mum hasn’t been in like 20 years so I re-found my love of it.  

Yes it’s more full of tourists than locals these days and I got told off in Super Drug for trying a tester that wasn’t a tester :/ 

I went to a vintage shop which actually is a vintage shop and doesn’t sell Primark items from three years ago.  it’s the same shop I got my 18th Birthday dress for £50.

Just as I was leaving after hanging up the 10th dress back up that I can’t afford I had a flick through the sale rail and found a hand made, pink, fitted 1960’s dress for £5.  

I tried it on thinking I could get rid of the sleeves or something but i’m not touching it with a pair of scissors now!
