Dress and gloves - vintage
Bag - 1950s vintage | Hat - Asos
 Coat, umbrella and scarf - Primark 

I went briefly into town earlier but I am spending the rest of the day working on my thesis. Nearly there! A couple of people commented on my outfit, which is always nice. I also found an amazing vintage skirt with a fairground ride novelty print in one of the vintage shops in town but due to current lack of funds, I sadly had to walk away from  it. It's such a shame because the shop in question has a lot of newer vintage (of the Doc Martins and ugly sweaters variety) and it's not very often that I find something I really like! 

It's the Crich Easter 1940s weekend tomorrow and Monday, but even though I was really looking forward to it, I might not go. It's still really cold here and Crich is right up on a hill and pretty exposed - I expect it will be even colder because of that!

This is one of my favourite hats, and it's the first time I've worn it with a hat pin. I still had to hold on to it once or twice though - it's not very windy out today but there were one or two gusts which I didn't trust not to blow the hat right off my head, hat pin be damned.

  2. What a sweet, feminine, immensely lovely nippy weather ensemble. I especially like that particular shade of grey of your tights, it really seams like a colour that would partner well with scads of hues.
