antiques.

[Leggings, Skirt, Jacket, Boots and Bag - (all) Newlook, Socks - Next, Jumper - George, Snood - Accessorise]

Above is me (excuse my crazy windswept hair). Here is a typical outfit of mine at the moment. Layers, a snood and my new heeled boots. You know, these boots have taught me something. Just a bit of extra height is good for a girl. You walk a little taller even if the heel is only an inch or two. Good for the soul and all that. I'm gonna abandon my flats for a bit cause I'm bored of feeling short.

While my family visited me this weekend, we found this beautiful little antique shop at the docks in Gloucester.  It was a great place to explore. I love vintage and antiques and nothing is more exciting than digging through beautiful old things and trying to write them a past. Who owned them? Who's used them? How did they make it here? That sounds pretentious but I guess it's the writer in me. Well anyway, I came away with a 1930's Vintage Brownie Kodak camera. So cool it deserves, and will get, a post of its own. Now just to work out how to use it and then I can post my photo results on here.

Anyway, here are some of the photos I took whilst exploring the shop!


Leave me a nice comment below? It doesn't even have to be related to this post. I just like reading what you have to say!

Happy Tuesday Guys :)

That little shop looks like a dream! I can't wait to see the photos from your new camera!

Also, I love the plaid skirt mixed with the chunky knits. You look stylish whilst being practical for this dreadful weather!

I completely understand when you said even an inch or two can do wonders! I'm a very short girl myself. You look preppy in your outfit :)
