get on your dancing shoes, there's one thing on your mind

Saturday, 7 December 2013































Hello guys! Today I went to Clothes Show Live in Birmingham for the second time. I went last year and loved it, but this year it was definitely more organised with more quality and vintage stalls, so I had a fabulous time rooting through all of the things they had on sale. The show itself isn't really what I'd imagine to be my sort of thing, but there was a whole section of the NEC hall devoted to vintage and secondhand clothing, all at really competitive prices (one-off denim jackets for £25 etc). I thoroughly enjoyed myself and managed to get a good few bargains, all of which I'm sure will be on this blog soon.
































I wore a sunflower dress from camden market with a Beyond Retro cardigan, rokit boots, topshop socks and a charity shop shirt. The pin was my mum's from when she was a teenager.

































It was too busy to take good pictures in the actual hall but I managed to do some awkward posing just outside. I got a few weird looks but you know, it's all for the greater good right?
































I actually had a really nice day out, and am now relaxing with tea and yoghurt before running out again to a friend's birthday. I hope you are all having a good weekend...I can't wait to get this busy week done so I can post a little less erratically again! hugs,
