304.Wishes to burn lipsy

I thought I'd share with you all a few photos from a recent Leeds trip and in doing so, would also promote the awesomeness of the affordable vintage fair. If like myself, you're a bit of a vintage maverick and live in England, I suggest you check the vintage fair site on a regular basis to see if theres a fair near you anytime soon. I always like to join a shopping trip to Leeds or York with a visit to one,and as you can see in the photos, me and my friends(not that they had much say in this decision-I can be quite forceful,and they spent the majority of the time laughing at the "ugly,granny" clothing) did exactly that.

In that last photo you can see some of my recent purchases(I sometimes feel a little yucky posting "look at what I bought" photos, but oh well)- an urban outfitters jumper, a beautifully made rust coloured skirt and watch from the vintage fair, and a Smiths(I KNOW, OH MY GAWD I'M SO HIPSTER) T-shirt bought in a little boutique in my city. That little boutique has shut down recently along with 3 other vintage shops , whilst big companys like lispy(I know style is subjective and blah blah,but this shop is MY ENEMY) have moved into town, which I find pretty despairing.
Wishes, Sofie
