East End Thrift Store

vintage floral waistcoat, H&M stripy top and rings, vintage Levi's shorts, New Look tights

hey guys, long time no see eh? this is probably my last post for a week or so as I have two weeks of exams starting Monday and I'll be geeking up for a while and being cool at home with loads of books, good times. 
got this floral waistcoat last week at Camden and this is my first time wearing it and i absolutely love it. the print on it is pretty awesome and the material is great for the weather we're having at the moment. also, i had been looking for a pair of vintage Levi's shorts for ages and i refused to pay £28 for them at Urban Outfitters, so my sister and i paid a trip to The East End Thrift Store. And oh my isn't it just great!?! it's a bit out of the way, as it is down an alleyway that you could easily miss, but if you ever get a chance to go, it's totally worth it! i finally found these shorts from a vast selection of vintage Levi's shorts, all £10 each! they also had dresses, tops, jackets all for really good prices, hence the 'thrift' part of the name. i found the perfect pair of shorts, and i would definitely go again. 

but for now, i'm gonna have to love you and leave you
au revoir mes amis!

ps. thanks for the new followers! :)
