Earlier that day, I'd gone a little vintage crazy in Brick Lane. I'd popped over to my current favourite vintage store (The Brick Lane Thrift Store on Sclater Street) but wasn't able to find anything. On my way back, I popped into Vintage Heaven (184-186 Brick Lane) where I found a little black dress - most likely from the '80s - by Scott McClintock (son of Jessica McClintock) and a pair of shoes which matched the dress perfectly for just £40. I'd been in an LBD-hunting mood for quite some time (Hah! Which girl isn't ever in that mood?) so this was something I couldn't quite resist.
Vintage strappy black heels (£10)
Then I proceeded to do further damage to my wallet by walking through the Sunday Upmarket. I can't remember why I did that although I think something was going on at the Truman Brewery so I thought it'd be easier to get past by going through the market instead.
Unfortunately for my wallet, I managed to walk past a stall which was just setting up even though it was 4 pm. The American lady stallholder, as it turns out, was a bit of a late-starter (so she said). And she was having a bit of a crazy sale on all of the vintage costume jewellery on display. The pieces which were normally going for £10 each were now two for £10. And the more you bought, the better it got. In the end, I walked off with four pieces for £17 and an extra piece thrown in for free.
