I went to my first vintage fair of 2018 today (and definitely not the last – there are another six coming up within the next month alone. Good thing vintage stuff can be so cheap!) Today’s fair was a small event held at the Northumbria student union, put on by Headlock Vintage. I was itching to get going with the vintage shopping this year, especially as I’ve been wanting to get some more interesting patterns into my mostly-solid-black wardrobe (the goth is still strong with this one).
The three things I ended up buying were light summer garments. I think this is my not-so-subconscious telling me I’m getting fed up of winter now. The black and white diamond material and the pink and black material are both capri trousers; the floral material is a dress. All black backgrounds, I know, but I think I’ve been successful with the ‘interesting patterns’ thing.
When I went up to pay, I also got a voucher for 20% off on the Headlock Vintage website, which was a nice bonus! I went home and promptly used it to grab myself a nice top. A blue top, without a hint of black. I am branching out, sort of.
