Southsea Flea Market - 05.05.2012

Hey Guys!

So I’ve just finished prepping for Southsea Flea Market tomorrow! Nicole and I have our own stand there and will be selling lots of vintage and modern goodies for super cheap! 

There will be an eclectic and affordable mix of bric-a-brac, modern and vintage/retro cothes, arts, crafts, jewellery, books - the list goes on!

It will take place in St Swithun’s Church Hall, which is on Waverly Road (just off of Albert Road). Entry is completely free, and there is free parking via Collingwood Road!

Not only that, you can also buy wonderful home made cakes after browsing the range of stalls. You’d be silly not to go!

See you there?

Shirt - Vintage
Bag - Asos Men’s
Shoes - Underground Creepers

we can speak at slower speeds.

Does anybody else steal their Mum’s old clothes or is it just me? I claimed this blue top as my own and I’ve worn it so much. It’s a pretty simple piece, but it was free and it’s something new so you can’t complain! Next I plan to raid my Dad’s wardrobe… Plaid Shirts and Levi’s here I come! Don’t knock the hand-me-downs.

Local readers, if you’re stuck with what to do this weekend, I’d recommend heading down to The Wedgewood Rooms on Sunday. Boy/Girl duo Slow Club will be playing, along with support from local Alternative/Shoegaze band Is Bliss and rising Acoustic artist Tom Bertram.

Here’s what The Fly had to say about Slow Club:

"Slow Club are another boy/girl duo but instead of valium’d-up rock n’roll they make sacharine folk-pop that turns your usually miserable scribe into a radiant ray of positivity"

Sound good? 

Get yourself down to The Wedgewood rooms sharp! Tickets are only a tenner, and for 3 great acts, you can’t say that’s not a bargain!

Enjoy yourselves!

Junkie Man Jewellery

Ok, so the SFW team have a new obsession. Local girl Erin-mae Fradley brings us Junkie Man Jewellery - unique and trendy jewellery, all hand made from junk!

All Jewellery is Uni-sex and all rings are adjustable, so you don’t need to worry about sizes! The Jewellery is recycled so not only is it super chic, but great for the environment too (which we are ENTIRELY supportive of!). Products range from gothic cross earrings to girly floral rings.

Junkie Man had their first ever photoshoot recently - here are a few snaps:



Prices start from just £2.50, and you can buy from Junkie Man’s Online Shop. Also check out their Facebook Page for more pictures and updates.

I have to warn you though, you better be quick - I’ve got my eye on a couple of things already! Who knew junk could be so tempting?

He’s My Morning

Ok, so this is an outfit i wore from a few weeks back. Unfortunately I haven’t had time to get anything this week as I have been so busy with deadlines; making clothes and taking photographs! It is very hectic and I have no time to stop with a deadline lingering around just 4 days away!

How exciting is it to see some sun then!? Spring is here, and I hope you are all dressing for it! Not to the extreme though, I wouldn’t recommend leaving the house with bare legs…

Here, I just wore a classic camel shift dress with a vintage oversized cardigan, some heeled clog boots and red accessories. Pretty classic! I do love red and camel together…

I hope you are all going to have a wonderful weekend and get those BBQ’s started! But don’t drink or eat too much, I hope to see you all at Granny’s house on Monday for the “Mad Men” party for some cool outfits, delicious cakes and amazing music!

Ps - This is my last outfit post for 2 weeks as I go on holiday Wednesday. See you then!

Summer Mood

As odd as it sounds, I truly hope that nobody is here to read this at this moment in time. The weather is glorious, and you should all be outside, enjoying the sun and drinking beer! I wish I was… Unfortunately this weekend brings a mid season sale, and therefore lots of work for me. 

However, the sunny skies this week meant that a thin cardigan, my peace necklace (that Nicole kindly bought for me on a trip to London) and my trusty chelsea boots was all I needed to pair with this scalloped dress from ASOS (come to think of it, it was also Nicole who bought me this for my birthday last year! I am so lucky to have a friend with such good taste.)

Granny’s House was quite a success on Monday! It was great to see everyone’s grunge looks, and the homemade cakes were amazing. It’s the “Mad Men" theme on Monday, so my task on Sunday evening is to find some appropriate attire… What will you wear?

Blues From A Gun

Another weekend is here, I hope you are all doing something fun? This is a little something I put on quickly this morning. I got up early to carry on with an essay which I left till last minute and left myself with no time to get myself sorted but hey, work has to come first for once (or at least I am trying to do this in my life).

I teamed a leopard and leather blouse over a black bodycon dress and my my old Dr Martens which, just for the record, I really think I need to invest in a new pair soon.

You may also notice a change to my hair again. Basically, I am on my way to dying my hair purple but it didn’t take all over as, of course, it should be bleached first but I refuse to bleach my hair so I am doing it my way :) I have a couple more pots coming in the post, and by next week I should have purple hair for a couple of weeks (as it is only semi permanent) At the moment, I guess I can live with it being a mixture of blonde, grey and purple.

Hope you all have a great weekend and I hope to see you at Gran’s House on Monday - It is Grunge night!!!

tell me the secrets of your life.

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!

Just a quick one from me as I am a very busy bee this weekend - college work overload! I’m pretty sure you all know how that feels. It’s my own fault, I don’t do things when they are given to me and just leave them to simmer for a while. I’ll never learn.

So, I’ll be locked away in my room tonight and tomorrow unfortunately. On the plus side, sitting around in this dreamy mesh dress from Dahlia makes me feel a lot better! It’s definitely one of those wear anywear dresses - the same goes for my super versatile bag that the lovely people at Oasap.com sent me.  I needed a new black bag (can never have too many, right?) and this one was perfect! It has both a shoulder strap and a grab strap, which are both detachable so you can swap over at your convenience. It was an amazing price too, at just $28 dollars, it equals to about £18! They have free worldwide shipping at the moment, so I’d definitely reccomend you check them out at www.oasap.com before all the good stuff is gone!

I hope you all have a great weekend that consists of more fun and games than mine!

I Don’t Wanna Go There Anymore

So with just one weekend to go, Southsea Fashion Weeks fund raiser at the Registry is launched! The themes are changing every week and it kicks of with a “Granny” theme.

Check out Harriet’s post for inspiration for the perfect Granny look!

I just have something super casual for you here. It was one of those “I have to be comfortable” days and my bronze H&M jumper, skinny jeans and chelsea boots made that happen.

Have a great weekend and I am looking forward to seeing what looks you created for Gran’s House next week!!
