Far Too Much Excitement For One Day


After a gargantuan eight-hour chazzing adventure with my gorgeous friend Cheryl, I'm well and truly exhausted.

1970's Vintage Wrap (£1.25 Salvation Army), Guardian (£1, Co-operative)
With nothing on the box this evening it's the night for catching up with my blogging pals and reading the Guardian from cover to cover.




Ooops, nearly forgot to mention that my little hobby has gone and made it to the Top 10 UK Vintage Clothing Blogs! I'm highly honoured to share chart success with some of my very favourite bloggers. Thanks, Cision.

  1. YAY for Vix!! Well done you :)
    Eight hours?! That's mental! When I'm up in Cov, I'll try for the same sort of time. Which charity shops do you mainly shop in? Your local ones?

  2. That vintage wrap looks so intriguing.
    What an EPIC Charity shop spree, can't wait to hear about what you found.
    I keep meaning to ask you about a coat I have acquired, I am very unsure what era it is from and what it would be classed as. I may well post it on my blog this week so you can see. You are my ultimate vintage source after all :)xxx

  3. Ooooh, how exciting! Look at you, steaming up the charts! Hooray, so very pleased. :)

    The blouse is a UK size 22, by the way. You were VERY far off! xx

  4. Hmmmm, the Guardian cost nearly as much as the vintage wrap. I know which will last lomnger.

    The colours on the wrap look lovely, soft and gentle and intriguing.
