37







3.1 by Phillip Lim dress, Acne cardigan, ASOS jacket, Vintage boots (similar here), Proenza Schouler bag, Karen Walker sunglasses


Over the weekend I met up with Nina to do a little bit of vintage shopping in Newtown, as part of her buy only second-hand or vintage clothing for the month of May. Unfortunately our trip yielded neither of us any gems, although I did manage to find a cat jigsaw that kept me occupied for some time on Sunday night. Our expedition was followed by a spiced apple tea and treats at Baobab - hands down becoming my local in this borough.

While I wish that I was with Nina on her month of no "new" purchases, it appears that my purchases so far are anything but. So much for shopping less, perhaps I really do need to start telling myself "no". Either that or I gather some restraint for the next three weeks of May... yeah right.

    I love the idea of second-hand only for a month, but I don't think I could stick with it either!

  11. Sounds like a lovely afternoon. I've not heard of Baobab!
    And I have gone a little crazy shopping the last two weeks - think I have felt the need to splurge after not buying much in quite a while!
