Tartan_Coat

I am a lover of vintage and cheap and cheerful garments, anything that saves money I am down for, brands are not a big deal to me, I focus more on the quality and look of the item. Unfortunately I hardly get time to shop these days so travelling to charity and vintage stores is very rare, you know you have to spend good time sifting and digging.

I went to Nando’s in Camberwell to meet and catch up with an old mate, it was inspirational and enjoyable at the same time. I love that I have so many driven and business focused people in my life. They help me to realise my potential and strive for nothing less than the best!

…anyway back to clothing… after our dinner date, I headed to Peckham to pick up some hair products and happened to pass a charity shop called Scope on the way; a beautiful dress was hanging in the window so I thought heeeey, let me go in and have a nosey. I browsed around and didn’t see much else I liked until this jacket. I was like OMG I need/HAVE to have it in my life. Its a size 14 but I tried it on, its big; not massive but deffo oversized on me. I loved the fit though, I think its perfect. It feels like an expensive jacket but the tag said £10, I was sold. It was a 2-piece, it came with a skirt; but as I didn’t want the skirt the sales lady gave me the jacket for just £5!!! #WINNING!

I bought it at the right time, Spring seems to have arrived in London UK so I am sure I will be getting good use out of it while the weather is still mild. All black everything is the perfect compliment to this jacket and is probably how I will wear it 95% of the time.

I hope you enjoy the video and photo’s, lots more to come praise God! I have got my blogging mojo back YAAAAAAAY!

Firstly I ask for your forgiveness on the graininess of these pictures, sometimes outfit shots are difficult to take. Not only do we play a game of cat and mouse with the rain in good ol’ England, we also have to consider sunlight!

Any-who enough of my moaning, I’m pretty sure I care more than you do, so rather than talk a bunch a techy babble about farting around with iso and shutter speed, lets just take a moment to admire my outfit, that is obviously what this post is about.

Leather just has that ‘pow’, that ‘boom’, that oi you, Cat-Woman aint got nothing on me, type of feel to it. I wish I got some better snaps to show you the detail at the back of the dress, its lace and looks so amazing, but alas, its winter, so the likelihood of me prancing around the streets with no jacket on is very slim unless I want to ‘catch death’ (old Jamaican saying).

This is one of my fav jackets, the midlength is perfect for me and I love how its slightly sloughy looking, with the big pockets, but its also fitted and elegant; right up my ally. I know its white but i’m sure Cat-Woman would be totally jealous! Now, where is my Batman?
