As editor of the Vintage Threads blog it is my duty to attend the fair and rifle through the rails in search of some of the best bits. This can be a bit dangerous for the wallet as I have been unable to resist some shiny, cheerful bargains. From sequin jackets to Pat Butcher earrings, I always have some shopping bags to smuggle home.
Few of the pieces I have bought have spent long in the wardrobe, they have hit the dance floors of Manchester within a matter of hours and I have been safe in the knowledge that it is unlikely that I will bump into anyone in the same outfit!
OUFIT NUMBER 1 : Both Jacket and earrings are from Vintage Threads. Clip on earrings, £5. Sequin jacket £25, an absolute bargain for such sparkle joy!
OUTFIT NUMBER 2: Dress from Jeny and Amber stall at Vintage Threads, either £10 0r £15, I can't remember. I work it with a big bow on my head. (pictures of this will be on my own blog tomorrow)
Hat, £10 This has hardly left my head with which such short hair has been very cold. I am not a beanie hat wearer so it has been a great alternative.
Frank Usher Maxi dress, £5 (BARGAIN). I have yet to wear this, it needs a trip to the dry cleaners for a freshen up. It is definitely going to get a lot of wear through the Spring.
Picture, £7. My one piece of homeware from Vintage Threads. It's a German postcard print and I absolutely had to have it. My boyfriend was puzzled to why I wanted a picture of a naked lady on a bull.
