A new outfit calls for some good ol’ imagery to go with it and since I’ve never been to Newport before my photographer and I decided to embark on a mini adventure around the area to find a nice background to pose in front of, and in the end I settled for this wall, at the end of the day it’s Newport. I’m sure there are plenty of nice areas around Newport way but I sure as hell didn’t see any!! Anyway on with the outfit….
I got my dungarees from Annie & Co which is a vintage shop in Cardiff that sell all manners of things; from taxidermy to old dolls, they have everything!!! Downstairs they have a mini art gallery where a local artist sells her work on at the back of the shop they have a section of all vintage clothing and some of the pieces are just gorgeous! The buy and sell brand is called Just Jules Vintage and they specialise in clothing, furs, home ware and furniture. She has a Facebook page, a link shall be added at the end of the post.
During my little spree at Annie & Co I also purchased myself a lovely denim vest. I’ve been wanting to get a denim vest for a while so I can start sewing some really kawaii style badges on it. I bought a few badges awhile ago from Sugarbones and I’ve been wanting a denim jacket and/or vest to sew them too. The one I have purchased is perfect and until it’s completed to my liking you will never get to see it!!! However, watch this space….
I bought my Itchy and Scratchy crop top from Primark a month or two ago and I’ve been meaning to wear it for a while. I also bought a Bart Simpson denim jacket which I shall share with you soon, especially since I’m focusing a lot on Simpsons inspired outfits (which you can view here). I love the tie dye style of this crop top, very summery!! It’s a bit tight underneath the arms but they have bulked up since I last wore it (which, I’ve just realised, was when I tried it on in the changing rooms). It still looks nice. I’m also using these images as a motivation to get thinner or at least get some abs. I looked ballooned!! Again!!
Hope you like the outfit and I hope to take more soon!!
