I'm a bad blogger

I haven't posted for TEN DAYS! Wow, this is so unlike me. I'm sarrrrry. I've had quite a busy week though and lots to show you! Wednesday and Thursday night were a couple of really amazing evenings. My friend asked me to model her collection and we were shooting in theee most amazing studio in East London. It was literally the most amazing place i've ever seen, all white and modern, a huuuge studio, pizza delivery, lots of Mac make-up, wild hair pieces, professional models, make-up artists and an amazing photographer. Rebecca (my "buddy" from third year that I told you about) is currently working on her final collection, and a couple of her friends are studying beauty at LCF, so it was for their project too. We had SO much fun, and I don't think i've ever eaten so much junk food in two days, I had a definite food baby going on!

Here's a few snaps I took of the studio...

As soon as i'm allowed, i'll be sure to show you some of the photos :)

Today I went to the Grand Vintage Fair in St Albans, a town just a few mins down the road from my house. It's suchhh a pretty town, me and my mum say if a town has a Waitrose it must be posh! Haha and it does, along with a Cath Kidston, Jack Wills, various yummy mummy boutiques and shabby chic furniture shops...

I wore this vintage shirt dress which I picked up at a jumble sale last year for about 20p! I was thinking of altering the length but since I am so in love with midi dresses lately I decided to keep it as it is.

I went a bit crazy shopping today, but my cute mum wanted to treat me so I couldn't really say no :p Have any of you noticed the wealthier the town, the better quality clothes in their charity shops and the more expensive the prices? Cancer Research for example literally shocked me with how expensive they were, even for Primark clothes! Sure you can find better brands/labels but still, it's a charity shop and it's used clothing, they must lose a lot of business when people like me refuse to go back there ever again!

I managed to pick up a few cute bits, even if I did pay more than I usually would.

I found this cute vintage VS vest! So cute. Also popped into H&M and got a few bits:

Hope you're all having a great weekend, i'll be sure to post lots more this week!

  7. i heart your bag...!!

  8. I love that flocked velvet floral blouse you picked up from the charity shop! My local Cancer Research charity shop charges a fortune also! They also have a rail of hand-picked "retro & vintage items" that are double the price of the rest of the clothes, which is ridiculous! Of course, there are some amazing pieces in their vintage section but I cannot bring myself to pay £18 for a dress from a charity shop!

    I'm excited to see the photoshoot. That weave looks insanne! I've been after some stripey jeans also, so I might have to pop into H&M and hunt those bad boys down.
