Ahhh, another day out for you guys to watch, sorry for the overload of photos, but we had such a great day, I couldn't just pick a few photos to show!
On Sunday 20th, Melissa and I went to Brick Lane, and I had been there before, but I didn't really get a chance to explore the market properly and this was the first time Melissa had been there too, but we weren't disappointed. To start with, the atmosphere itself definitely has an edge over Portobello Market, there was music booming from various market stalls, the smell and sound of food from all over the world cooking and the general buzz of excitement from everywhere you go.
The food is amazing, I had a pad thai and Melissa had a falafel wrap and from what she told me, I gather that it was pretty yummy, as was my pad thai so if you're not really into the whole vintage clothing thing, then you should definitely just go there for the food as it is so good and really cheap as well!
But the vintage clothing shops and stalls are really good, although the prices weren't as cheap as Portobello, the quality of the selection of clothing is still pretty awesome. Melissa got an AMAZING sheepskin coat from a huge vintage market (which we only discovered towards the end of the day so we'd already spent most of our money -_-) for about £25, it had velvet pockets and looked so so warm, and for that price, it's pretty darn good! She also got a men's pea coat from a vintage shop for £10 which looked so cosy as it had a giant collar and was just the right amount of oversized (if that makes sense?).
I got this honey coloured faux fur coat from a stall for £20, it was so soft and the perfect size. I had wanted the perfect vintage faux fur coat for ages before and browsed ebay for some but never really found the perfect one, but this coat is so lovely, I couldn't help but stroke myself for the whole day when I wearing it, as did Melissa actually haha ;)
Overall, we had an awesome day, and we'll definitely be returning to Brick Lane with more money and we'll be going to the vintage market first as it was huge, and was almost like the vintage fair we went to last year except it's open every week, even better! I would recommend Brick Lane to everyone, it has such a laid back atmosphere and seems like the perfect way to spend my Sunday afternoons. Oh and we saw Sandra from 5 inch and up in Absolute Vintage. She's so cool. We love her. But in a totally non-creepy way....moving on...
