BAGGED: Another post of purchases

A while back a posted a post about things I had bought, inspired by the blog BAGGED by Kenny. I’m about to do it again (albeit on a smaller scale)

Gots me a bargain in a vintage shop today. My first pair of gloves for AW11. Not only are they gloves, they’re leather. Yes. Navy leather. AND they’re lined. AND THEY WERE £5!

Navy leather gloves, Pop Boutique, £5.00.
I have begun styling them already (despite the weather not quite being cold enough) but HEY, let’s get into the spirit of things!

Earmuffs, New York City Xmas Markets, US$5.00

Sweater, Nautic @ Macy’s New York, US$30.00

Jeans, Vegas by Wrangler, Gift

Boots, Hudson @ Schuh, £35.00

Bring on Autumn/Winter


Rockola Undies go Military

Remember my post on Luis and Juke? Yeah, where I got all naked. Well, the people (Rockola) behind that brand, have another too… Oiler and Boiler
Quite the newbie on the block Oiler and Boiler have caught my attention because I’ve been longing for nostalgia, for a time before time (well, the 80s). I recently bought a few 80s DVDs (Footloose, TopGun)  in the Blockbuster sale and was seen around Manchester and Cheshire today sporting a retro tape player whilst learning French for my impending Paris trip. Anywho, Oiler & Boiler have an antique feel. I’m into that right now.
These undies are called Navy and are modeled after that TopGun feel ‘The U.S. Wants You’ era. Think Saved By The Bell signs up. Not quite 80s but still “vintage” enough for me.

Sunday Excursions.

Yesterday the boyf and I took a car ride into Cheshire and visited the wildlife at Tatton Park. I remember visiting the park with my Nanna and Grandad as a wee nipper and feeding the Deer at Christmas. The park has many happy memories for me and so Ad and I wanted to start making some more, in our Autumn/Winter looks naturally.

My new hiking boots found under a pile of coats in a vintage shop and a bargain at £10!
