When I head into town on a weekend it's usually to run a few quick errands and I tend to stick to the same places if I'm having a short browse. But a few weekends ago, Lauren and I made an effort to go to some of the shops we hadn't tried before - particularly vintage clothes shops. I was quite excited to find that in one of the little shopping centres (which used to be a hospital), a new vintage shop was opening up.
Street Vintage had plenty of clothes and accessories to offer, and so reasonably priced that I bought all three of the dresses which caught my eye, for less than I'd usually spend on a Laura Ashley or a Monsoon dress. If you're not local, they also sell on Asos Marketplace. If you are, it's definitely worth a look and worth noting that they offer student discount too.
I couldn't wait to wear this dress; the print drew me in almost immediately as it made me think of a vintage LA pattern, although I'm not sure what the make it (not one I recognise). It goes so nicely with this sun hat - another thing I'm trying to do lately is actually wear some of my hat collection. I'm wondering about a local shopping challenge - maybe along the lines of the year-without-supermarkets challenge Team Pugh are undertaking this year (another recent blog find!)
