A Trip To The Market

I took a little trip to the vintage fashion fair at the  Bath Fashion Museum over the weekend for a little time out from constant uni stressing. I had a very jolly time cooing over all the shiny 1920’s beading and beautiful lingerie.

Unfortunately these were the only two pictures I got away with taking before the camera police caught me.

The fair was quite small, and I think more specifically geared towards serous collectors. There was an impressive array of Edwardian and Victorian cottons, and I would of loved to of bought a piece, but the prices were a bit too steep for me. I did however snag  a beautiful  brooch with blue stones for £2.00, and my boyfriend bought me a cameo brooch for just £12.00. It’s really beautiful, and a lot larger than most that I’ve seen.

And the obligatory ‘what I wore photo:’

Look at the pretty horses! I found this blouse for £5.00 at Walcot vintage market. The AA skirt was stolen from my friend who was about to give it to charity, and the jolly quirky smiley shoes are from Topshop. I love them but the bells can be quite embarrassing whilst you’re walking!


I’m not really sure about outfit posts, is anyone interested in what I wear?! However, they are easy and sort of fun, once I get over the awkward bit of attempting to pose in some way that makes me look relaxed and notatall uncomfortable. I may have to resort to more of these over the coming weeks, until my dissertation is over with. What do you think? Good idea? Or a blogging bore?


All that glitters/some rare Porter love

Those of you that know me will know that I have a love/hate relationship with the Porter Pub, where I have worked part time for the last three years whilst completing my degree. It can be the best job; wonderful staff, good music and lots of fun. But after three years working behind the bar, whilst struggling with a few long term medical issues, it can get a little tiring! Although I have to say, I feel very lucky to have a job, especially one I don’t hate. Plus, I get to work with my friends; who wouldn’t love that?!

This is a very rambling and somewhat tedious intro to some pictures I took on NYE. A sparkly evening where all the staff put on their best dress, pulled a few pints, and had an all round good time.

Very blurry behind the bar dancing; a pre-requisite required of all Porter staff.
