Spitalfields and Brick Lane Haul and a Special Announcement

Shirt - This Shop Rocks in Brick Lane, satin trousers - Cheap Monday, shoes - New Look, necklace - Spitalfields
Here are the three items that I bought when I went to Spitalfields, Camden and Brick Lane last Thursday!

It's not very often that I find clothes that I literally love, and this shirt has to be one of them. I bought it from a vintage store called "This Shop Rocks" on Brick Lane and when I tried it on, I knew it was for me. It's from the 1960s and only £15! What initially drew me in was fact that the collar is very long and of course the awesome pattern. However, when I tried it on, it fit perfectly which is rare for me. I also love this shirt as its quite warm and very versatile - I can wear it like this as a shirt, not tied in a knot as a dress, and its even thick enough to wear it as a sort of shirt blazer.  I guarantee this shirt will feature in more future outfit posts and I have decided that this is my joint favourite shirt along with this one.
I also bought these two necklaces too, both from Spitalfields market for £1 each! I really wanted a chunky chain so I'm glad I came across the one on the right. As for the one on the right, I have decided that it is my favourite necklace of all time - I was actually going to buy one similar to it from River Island for an extorionate price, so I'm so glad I found it too. An interesting fact about the one on the left is that says that it was made in Western Germany, meaning that it is also a vintage item as my limited historic knowledge tells me that Western Germany only existed from the 50s through to the 80s. Cool stuff.

For a more (extremely) detailed account of that day, check out my first ever blog post on my second blog, PeaaBrained!

Yes, that's right, PeaaBrained has finally launched (insert fanfair)
Yes, thank you very much for the 15 of you who voted on my poll - I have finally decided to make my second blog! I am super proud of my header and the format of my second blog - I think I like it even better than this blog! I spent a ridiculous amount of time arranging the peas to make this header, especially because I used frozen peas so they would keep rolling around everywhere, but hey, that's the whole point of study leave right?

Anyway, I've made this second blog, so people who only follow me to see picture of me pulling awkward faces whilst prancing around my garden aren't innondated/bombarded with my rambly, rambly life/personal posts. However, if you are interested in all that jazz, then head over and why not follow it? We come in peas!

P.S. Please excuse the lack of consistancy in the images today. I took the photographs on this Canon Powershot instead of the usual Nikon and I used an auto setting rather than program setting, so the settings kept changing!
P.P.S I am also very sorry for the lack of posts - I feel like a terrible blogger! However, now I am attempting to blog again every day again, on either blogs, so please follow if you wish to stay tuned!
