Today is the start of my 4 day weekend (YEAHH) so I went for a browse at a flea market near me, Deptford Market. I would definetly recommend it, alot cheaper than Brick Lane and Portabello Road, it's of like a carboot, you really have to rummage but I usually find a lot of vintage things for under a fiver. Above: dress £2.50, knit cardi £1.50, floral dress 50p, denim coat £3, pendant 50p and bracelet £1.50. It was also recently the sample sale at work which is always great. I got this embroidered denim skirt, the trousers are from the Warehouse sale. Finally the jeans are from a charity shop £3 or something? I've been searching for a pair of 'mum' jeans for ages, these are perfect aside from the fact that they're pretty huge (men's jeans..) so I may have to somehow take them in and cut them off abit. This weekend I'm visiting my grandma, eating lots of chocolate, and just food in general, more shopping as I recently got paid (yay!) and spending a couple days back in lovely Yorkshire. Hope everyone has an awesome Easter.

I love the spookyily hidden, expressionless faces behind the ghostly frizz of hair. This collection makes me think of traditional Japanese clothing (Samurai attire??) In a dark way it also makes me think of straight jackets, the boxy, paddedness, sterile muted colours and chunky knots.
