L1010523 (1) Leopard print dress with side pockets from a vintage shop L1010527 Silver and tourqouise cuff from Spitalsfield market. (This seller has the most amazing in-expensive Moroccan style cuffs and rings ). He’s also at Portobello Road market in the clothes section. This piece was around £14. L1010529
70s style knit skirt (looooove how this swishes when walking – wore it yesterday)
L1010525 …and yes it’s raining here today (stand back in amazement) L1010521 Me: Thrift men’s boots. Folk style coat (per the 1st picture). Took quick shots of a couple of the things I purchased a couple of days ago.

    Fashionclocked – yea Spitalsfield is an addictive place. So much better now than it used to be but much more crowded :-/

    Whoa… Leopard print dress, I always find those risky, I can never seem to manage to incorporate them properly, but I can’t wait to see what you do with it. Love those shoes, and the reflexion of the Union Jack in the puddle.
