So this weekend I realized the Affordable Vintage Fair had come to Newcastle; some of you might remember I went to the one in York a while ago (see the post here) and I loved it, there were hundreds of vintage dresses, blouses, shoes and accessories, amazing! So I just had to go to this one (and it was only £1 for student entry here when it £4 in York!!). So I persuaded Ben to take me. And yes, of course I bought something, okay two things! But you’re only seeing the one today, the shoes.
Yes, they are grannified, but they are awesome. I’ve been looking for some daytime wearable height heels for a while now, but everything seems to be stiletto or massive wedge, which don’t get me wrong, I love, but I can’t wear them during the day. I spotted a stall with a few pairs of shoes, and I was looking at some but they were all size 7 or 8 so I was sad. But then I spotted these hidden under a shelf, tried them on, and they fitted like a glove. They didn’t have a price on though, so I took them to the stall owner, thinking they’d be like £25, too expensive, but…no, they were only £5!! I’m pretty sure they’ve barely been worn, and they fit perfectly =)
And that’s all from me today, I managed to finish another essay over the weekend, now just one more 4000 word essay to go and about a week and a half to do it, but I want to get finished before because my exams start exactly 2 weeks today and I haven’t even had a chance to start revising yet. Oh and I now have the details for my charity shop challenge, but you’ll hear more about it nearer the time! In the meantime, if anyone has any charity shop/thrifting tips, please let me know them!!
