Brick Lane and Baseball Caps

20 September 2015

Hey guys! How are all of you? God, I feel so absent from the blogging world but during the school week I rarely go on my laptop, or if I do it's just for school work. I hate feeling so absent though, I need to figure out a mini schedule or something so I can keep up better aha, but I feel like most people have the same problem as me. 

On Saturday there was a vintage fair happening at Brick Lane that me and my friend wanted to go to. However, due to both of us being lazy and having outfit dilemmas we were too late to attend the actual fair. When we got to Brick Lane, we were both newbies to the place, and we weren't actually sure where to go. Like in Camden you walk off the train and BAM there's a market, but in Brick Lane you get off the train and BAM you have to walk for ages to actually get there. Once you've found all the markets and stuff though, it's fine because you can just follow the crowd and it's easier to just find other shops, but there were some places I had heard of that I wanted to go to but we didn't but at least next time I'll be more prepared! I also think it's better to go on a Sunday because there's a market on on Sundays as well, either way though I had a good time. We went inside the 'tea rooms market' and I found the coolest jacket but I wasn't there to buy a jacket my main aim was to find a funky shirt (which I was successful in doing). My friend also got such a cool, retro baggy denim jacket. I was tempted to get one but a) it was out of my price range (it was still cheap though, £30 but anywhere else it could have easily been £60- that's how funky it was). We also found a stool selling glasses and since we're both glasses wearers we had a look and they had such nice frames. I like my glasses, don't get me wrong, but I always had my heart set on a certain type and this stool had them. I didn't actually get the ones I originally desired, but I did get a cool frame so I'll get my lenses put into them. They were only £10 as well, and they are so groovy. Well, not groovy, but I feel like I can't use the adjective cool again. 

I then wanted to go charity shop shopping to see if I could find any more funky shirts for a good price and my Mum told me a really good one to go to. It was good, but not the good I wanted. I wanted old, retro styled things but these ones were good in the aspect of had designer things and still quite expensive but considering what they were were cheap. I did get a shirt from one of them but it's more of a 'Dad' shirt than a cool shirt, but I will find good charity shops someday. Even though these were good, but yeah, I have no desire for designer things (yet).

(sorry for the quality)
I would link you to what I'm wearing but I have no idea where any of these items of clothing are from. The top is probbaly from Next or Primark and the jeans are Joni Jeans from Topshop, sorry for the lack of help, but I'm sure you could find these online.
Outfit wise, I actually went pretty simple, but it seemed a lot jazzier than it was. I wore a white v-neck tshirt that belongs to my dad, black skinnies and my docs. I also paired it with this navy jacket of my sisters though, I'm not sure what type of jacket it is but I love it. Although it kind of smells musty so I really need to try and fix that because it's such a nice jacket. I also wore a necklace of my mums that was really pretty, it had a big stone at the end with little chains coming off it, but my hair covered it. My hair was all huge and wavy because I had it French plaited earlier this week, I love it when my hair is like that. Makes me feel like a mermaid. I also wore my Dads baseball cap. I have seen loads of people wearing caps recently and I always wanted to join in but felt like I would just look ridiculous, but I got a ring put in my nose the other day rather than a stud so i felt pretty fierce and figured I would just wear it. Now though, I just want more caps, a bit late because summer is over but oh well, I'm still going to try and find a cheap one. I really wanted to get cool pictures infront of some cool graffiti, seeing as Brick Lane is known for it's graffiti (there were tours going on and everything for it, well I think they were tours) but we didn't really look that hard to find much. We did have a time limit to get to. We did find some cool graffiti though, and we went to Rough Trade which excited me a lot. Not sure why, but it did. 

How was your guys weekend? I hope you're all good and see you soon!

  2. These shots are so cute, I adore the setting! The one thing I hate about living so far away from London is missing out on all the unique markets and shops it seems to hold, I need to go to some!

    1. If you're ever in London you should go! There are special events ones but you can always find vintage clothes in Camden and Brick Lane anyway! And thank you! I know, I wish there was more graffiti (that was actually nice) near where I lived so I could always have such a nice background aha x

    1. Ahaha thank you, although it never normally looks like this. Use coconut oil!! I have never really done much to my hair so it's pretty healthy anyway but I use coconut oil on it because otherwise it can get pretty dry and it's so good!x

  9. i seriously adore how your voluminous hair looks with that cap. it looks like it's exploding out of the cap in the most beautiful, mermaid-like way possible. btw i really liked reading this post. it just flowed incredibly well and held my interest. just a random thought(:

  12. I really feel your need to get a funky shirt, literally whenever I go clothes shopping it's the first thing on my agenda! Also, I keep seeing people mentioning camden and brick lane, they sound super swell. Are there any shops/markets/anything there that you would recommend going to? x

    1. Ohh well I don't actually know many markets, I'm trying to get more into going to them, but every Sunday theres a market at Brick Lane which I bet is amazing, and in Camden there are these two really cool vintage shops right next to each other that are a really good price. They're near the stables, literally right next to the Cereal Cafe there, they have such good funky shirts!x
