Firstly I'd like to say sorry for the quality of these photos, but the lighting wasn't that great and it was hard to look through the clothes let alone take pictures as there were so many people! So I tried to 'embrace' the feel to it with these photos when I edited them. I went to my first ever Vintage Clothes Fair on Sunday and I was quite excited since I'd missed the last one held in Swansea (that I knew off). I saw it being advertised on Facebook when a few of my friends joined the group, so keep a look out on Facebook for fairs like this in your area! I don't really have a lot of money at the moment so I was only going to buy things I loved and that fit me. In the end I bought two pairs of denim shorts, and seriously debated over buying a rucksack and some shoes. However I have enough bags, and didn't love it, it was just the best there and I'm still 50/50 about buying previously owned shoes. I'm sure they're clean and all, and they're so pretty but still I'm not sure.
There were loads of rails but in this one I found one pair of shorts, and I dress which was super pretty but a size too small and it puffed out weirdly by my stomach so that was a no no. There were a few dresses I liked, but were out of my price range, since I was on a budget. Not necessarily the best idea when you go to one of these places.
Look at all these pretties! Lots and lots of brooches and earrings which were really fun to look through, but again I didn't see anything that I loved, a few that I liked but I don't wear brooches that often. I'm trying to more, and wear my Mocking Jay pin a lot but maybe next time I'll see something I love.
Now these weren't the shoes I was talking about above (they were actually lace up boots, so cute!) but I liked the different colours and the gems on the bottom left one. One day I'd love to dress head to toe in Vintage with a pretty dress and shoes like above to match :)
So sorry again for the quality of the photos but that's what I did on the weekend, I dragged my poor boyfriend with me bless him, but we had spent the earlier part of the day roller skating or cycling in his case so it was a fun day all around (for me anyway!). While I didn't go away with much, there were lots of nice dresses, jackets, shoes, bags and jewellery, the shop owners were lovely and I'm hoping next time it's on I'll have more money! Have you been to any Vintage Fairs recently? Did you find anything amazing?
