I've always been really interested in second hand and vintage things and LOVE rummaging through second hand bookshops, vintage markets and little second hand shops. I've collected some wonderful buys over the years and I love that they are unique with a history behind them which is why I treasure them all the more!
From poetry anthologies to music scores, dictionaries and hardback story books dedicated with inscriptions dating back to 1920 - I just can't resist! My flat is strewn with some lovely books, and some beautiful vintage clothes too.
Here are some of my favourites..
This blue dress is my all time favourite buy! Found a few years ago when in New York with friends. We stumbled across the very famous Hell's Kitchen Flea Market whilst out exploring and this dress was on one of the stalls - vintage 1970. It was a hot day and I didn't want to try it on so I took a chance and bought it for $15 and it turns out it is the most perfect fit! It'd could have been made for me! As you can see, it's in perfect condition and beautifully made. I just love the detail down the front with the buttons and lovely mandarin collar.
