What I Wore: Velvet and Mirrors

I find car boot sales so exciting. You never know what you might find, and everything is so cheap! When I stay at my Grandparent’s house I always try to make it to the Guildford car boot sale with my dad. The last time we went, I picked up this velvet mirrored waistcoat for £2. I think it’s amazing – I love the embroidery detail – and it looks great over shift dresses 🙂 This white dress is one of my favourites, the daisies on the sleeves and the hem are so pretty, and I love the square neck. I feel like I’ve walked straight out of the 60s in this outfit, but that’s fine with me!

These photos were taken by my official photographer (a.k.a. my brother) before he went back to uni (I miss you little bro!) They were also taken before the days got darker and shorter, but oh well, I will be replacing thesevwalks along the riverside with pumpkin carving and costume making.

I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend! I’m enjoying being in Durham with James, and we’re spending today watching Buffy and making pumpkin pie 🙂 Sundays are the best!
