Hello everyone, welcome to the middle of the week! I hope its been a good one so far? It's still bloody cold here, but I'm adapting ;)
Finally got in to town Christmas shopping today. Please don't hate me, but I only have three more presents left to buy
(and no money left!)
I know a lot of us are vintage fans, and I also know it can get very expensive, so I wanted to bring www.covertcandy.co.uk and their vintage shop to your attention as a one stop place for swapping the clothes you don't wear for credits to buy ones you will, and their seperate online shop for cheap vintage clothes
I've been a member of covert candy for some time now and really love the site. I've had some great items from there, and have felt better about culling my unworn clothes, knowing they've gone to a good home.
The vintage shop is great, with loads of variety for really, really reasonable prices. Where I live, the only vintage shop is a teeny tiny one of the highstreet and it jacks prices up so much, that I often go in there feeling I've walked in to Selfridges or something (not that we have such shops in my sleepy little village!)
All the vintage items on covert candy are hand selected from vintage wholesalers in Paris, and they have fresh batches arrive approximatley every month. You can sign up for e-mail alerts of new arrivals as soon as they arrive.
go check it out, and sign up for the clothes swap too. We might end up with each other's clothes ;)
Outfit wise, I've done something I swore I never would and bought a pair of "jeggings" although the ones I got, from New Look are the thickness and quality of a pair of skinny jeans, in my opinion, just with an elasticated waist.
Not bad for £15!
