fun day out!





Today was one of those crazy-fun days! First I had the most delighful crepe from the man from the creperie, imagine having an entire English breakfast in a light, crispy wrap. It was unbelievable!

We then spent the rest of the afternoon lost in vintage heaven at The Real McCoy. Those of you who live in the UK, you'll know what I'm talking about. It's basically one of those shops you can spend hours in, digging through racks of musky smelling clothing that reek of days gone by. I left with a beautiful Victorian wedding dress that was tragically tossed out back together with the rest of the 5quid-a-piece sale items. I know right, I'm so gonna wear it later to scare Ian for abit, just for kicks ;) It's gorgeous anyway and I'll take a picture of it in all its laced glory real soon!

It's not everyday that you go out shopping to come home with a wedding dress, you know.
I have half a mind to keep it as it as and (maybe) wear it for a special occasion, be it my actual wedding or as a corpse bride at the next halloween party. But logic says to get the bottom hacked off so I can wear it as a mini-dress. decisions, decisions (:

I hope everyone's enjoying their friday!
Can you smell that? I think it's the weekend,
and it smells delicious ;)

Iva said...

Hello there!! I LOVE crepes! (I'm pretty good at making them, if I do say so myself......slather on some Nutella!! YUM!!)

jasmine said...

yay! you're using your film! that shop sounds amazing. i cannnnnnnnot wait to see your wedding dress. how could you NOT buy a victorian wedding dress?!?

shelliebellie said...

oh nice pics! what a great bag! can't wait to see pics of the dress! idk what it looks like yet or anything, but i bet making a sweet summer dress is a great idea. When ever i get married i'm thinking or a short dress so maybe it could work as both afterall! oh and on the previous post, the lil [la madaline] looking hat is wonderful! okay now i have to find me one! lol

love your blog!

I totally HEART ADELE.

One day Adele and I will eat crepes together.

Or maybe more accurately I will eat them and keep them from her until she designs a baby clothing line in my children's names.

yup. that's the plan.

Dear Adele, I envy you for that wedding dress :-) What a fun pictures. I hope your weekend is lovely. I'm so happy to see you on my blog and big kudos to you for speaking chinese :-) I'm living here a year now but I just speak a little bit (I would love to learn more of course and I hope I will be able to do that, it's just oh so difficult). Much love for you and see you around: Evi
