What I'm wearing... Quilted vintage, Leather & Pink!!!

Today's post features yet another vintage weigh & pay kilo sale bargain! Serving up 80's realness in the most amazing quilted jacket. It is in a quite thick quilted material with gold thread throughout giving it a chic look, it has a bright coloured print all over it with what look like starfish, which obviously appealed to me loving anything slightly mermaidy! There's also gold in the print and super shiny gold buttons down the front. I picked out the pink in the print and teamed it with a vintage bright pink shirt. I tucked this into a black pu leather skirt and playing on the 80s vibe I added a chunky chain detail belt. I used my fave vintage bag which added that extra bit of black and gold to the look. I went for these pink metallic sandals with some black tights and some pinky/purple pompom bobbles in my hair to tie in the colours in the jacket. I finished off with a gold chunky necklace and some multicoloured lightening bolt earrings. I love wearing bright colours and still try to wear them as much as I can but it is sometimes harder in these colder months. I just can't wait for it to start warming up and for the days to stay lighter for longer, bring on summer!!!

Polka Dot lyf!!!

So if you're a regular reader you'll have seen loads of my posts have featured pieces from the vintage weigh and pay kilo sale, I absolutely love kilo sales and you get so much for your money. I can't wait to go to more events this year and pick up more bargains. Today's post features another great piece I picked up at one of the kilo sales. It's a gorgeous pure silk midi dress in a mustard yellow with white polka dots all over. I don't often go for a midi length as I'm quite short but I think this particular length works quite well. It has a double breasted effect with cross over front and double buttons, it does come quite low and was also a bit see through as it's a fine silk, so I wore a black cami dress underneath. I cinched in the waist with a chunky black chain detail belt to tie in the black. I went for black accessories with a fringe bag, velvet choker and my black fedora hat which I haven't actually worn for ages, I definitely need to get it back out more often! Finally I finished the look with my black patent ankle boots that have been my absolute go to boots the last few months, and they were only £12!!

Under the Sea.... The ultimate mermaid shirt!!!!

If you're a regular reader you're probably aware I'm a sucker for anything mermaidy and am a big kid at heart. So anything fun and with an underwater theme appeals to me greatly. So when I spotted this amazing shirt hiding in the rails at a vintage weigh and pay kilo sale I grabbed it as quick as I could. It's a loose oversized style in a chiffon like material with an amazing underwater theme print with fishes all over. The bright blue and greens are colours I love wearing so it was absolutely perfect for me and as it is so light it would've worked out super cheap as it barely weighed anything in the kilo. For this look I teamed it with a pu leather skirt in the same lime shade, you can't really see it in the pictures but it was more to cover my modesty as although the shirts super long it's sheer so I still needed some bottoms. I wore tights as it's still feeezing and some chunky platform sandals. I accessorised with a lime leather bag and some cute pompom bobbles, finishing off with a shell necklace to complete the mermaid vibe!
