Sunday I went for a meal with my old work friends in Bristol- I wore my new vans that I dribbled toothpaste on and didn't realise until I looked at the pictures (classy ha) and my fur coat. Now I know how people feel about real fur and I'm one of the biggest animal lovers you'll ever meet, buttt my Nan sells antiques and vintage clothes and she gave it to me for my birthday last year- I originally insisted on only faux fur but as soon as I tried it on I fell in love, there was nothing I could do!!

Top, Leggings and Owl ring: Primark, 
Casio: ASOS, Belt and Fur: Vintage

Onto the post name- The Dandelion is a kind of indoor market (with static stalls) in Gloucester, Longsmith Street, which sells vintage clothing and antiques. My Nan has a section of the shop where she sells some amazing vintage pieces from all different eras, (I'm hoping you can now see the link to this post, my coat, my Nan, the Dandelion...) So I don't know how many of you live anywhere near Gloucester or if you ever visit but if you do then it's definitely worth popping by to see if you can pick up a few vintage bargains. For I while I've been planning to sell a few of my vintage pieces in there which either don't fit or I don't need any more, rather than going down the eBay route, and this should all be sorted over Christmas, excitingggg :)


  1. The Dandelion place sounds like a dream! Love the colour of your tee, and with your awesome coat.. looks extremely snug.x

  2. This outfit is so cute honey - I've got some burgundy Vans that I never wear but I'm going to try and recreate this look :)
    The fur actually looks lovely and not as dry as I find real fur to be on some coats. If that makes sense! I love that your nan sells vintage clothing :) cool job!

  3. lovely outfit, great colours and necklace!

    also, i just wanted to say that i came across your blog today and i think it's really nice! i've had a good read through and i'm definitely going to be keeping up with your posts in the future!
