The wonderful J.Noir informed me that the East End Thrift Store were having a jumble sale. As a non-Londoner I'm always glad of ANY tips on where to shop/eat/dance (hint hint) so I took myself along there and had a good old rummage.
Now, believe it or not, but in the whole of my very extensive wardrobe, there is not one Denim jacket. I know it's a wardrobe staple, but I'm not really about the staples. Ask me for a feathered cape or a beaded ball-gown and I'll have twenty, but the basics, like jeans, pyjamas, underwear... I am sadly lacking.
I now work in East London, so I will make one concession to being in Shoreditch and that is wear the obligatory vintage denim jacket. I don't know why I've held out so long. It's a handy transitional item. Also, these 2 babies set me back £4 a piece, so even if I don't wear them loads, it's OK. I plan to wear the one with leather details loads as it fits really well and customise the other one with diamantes and studs!
The bejewelled number below was an eBay purchase. When I opened the package in which it came, I literally had a mini fash-gasm! It is the most perfect jacket I own (and that's saying something). I paid £12, but I would pay £100 for this, I love it so much. It's long-length and super chic. It's a Frank Usher design for you eBayers.
Anyway, that's my little haul. I'm a poor intern, it may be my last for a while.
