East London day// Brick Lane vintage kilo sale haul and OOTD

Today is another *flashback* kind of post- I have a fair few outfits and photos from last year that I didn't share as I was too busy dying and trying to wrangle my dissertation... but luckily all that's behind me now, so I'm getting to work on the backlog :) This day was at the end of January, the best part of a year ago(!!) when me and my friend Lizzie had a day in London <3

First up, we hit the department of coffee and social affairs :> the coffee was legit!

And then we just wandered along Brick lane! I got Lizzie to take some outfit pictures for me <3

 I was really pleased with this outfit actually- the jacket is one I really need to wear more often as it definitely steps up any look. I managed to score this for £12 from the vintage/charity shop Sue Ryder in Headingley, Leeds. (Hit it up if you're in Leeds- the prices are amazing and it's really curated, plus it's for charity!)

After that, we wandered around Brick lane for a bit- hit up some faves like Rokit, and Lizzie showed me her fave vintage shop called Blitz (it's called Attica now)

 We headed to central London for some fit ramen at Kanada-ya! Would definitely recommend if you're a tonkotsu ramen fan because it was pretty reasonable price, too.

 Annd here are the things I picked up from Blitz! I swiped them all for a tenner- the shop assistant was v nice and wouldn't let me leave with only one shirt- I originally only wanted the cord one. But actually, they were all solid picks :)

That's it for now! Also, I seriously miss my long hair... I'm trying to grow it back out, and it has grown a little but it's so thin and ratty compared to how it used to be... so much so that I'm considering cutting it again. I just want that blunt shoulder length cut, but I think it might take some serious doing. Has anyone else tried to grow bleached hair? SOS...

  1. Ah don't worry - I still use super old photos from like a year ago in recent posts! #thatbloggerlife
    Looks like you had a lovely day out with Lizzie! I seriously need to buy from vintage/charity shops, especially because I've started reading up about sustainable living and fast-fashion... It makes me feel a bit guilty about my shopaholic self!

    1. Ahaha I'm glad I'm not the only one! And I think you're pretty good with fashion tbh! Like you said before, you buy second hand gyaru brand and things~ We all just need to do the best we can but it's no good beating ourselves up! <3 <3
