On Sunday despite a stonker of a hangover I braved the festival crowds and headed to the HMV Picture House for Judy’s Vintage Fair.
I’ve been to Judy’s vintage fair before however it was at Out of the Blue rather than the HMV Picture House. At the vintage fair there was a staggering array of vintage goodies to be found. Along with my sister Lauren, niece Mya, best friend Yvonne (who was also hungover) and her son Lewis, I was on a mission to find a pair of vintage sunglasses as my old ones had broken last week.
Looking ever so slightly hungover!
If this won’t put people off drinking nothing will!
Lauren rocking her shades
We spent a while trying on different sunglasses
Mya getting into the spirit of the vintage fair!
Unfortunately due to my hangover and Lauren’s OCD we didn’t stay all that long at the vintage fair but I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone, there’s some great bargains to be had, I picked up a pair of sunglasses for a fiver and spent £18 on a handbag. Some of the other customers looked amazing in their outfits, my favourites were those who had went all out in full 1950s and 60s ensembles. Please check out Judy’s website here to see any upcoming events in your area.
On Monday Lauren, Carla and I decided to spend a few childfree hours shopping, well I say shopping from the photos below you’ll see I mean dicking around in Primark!
How cute is this canvas?! Had to buy it for my cupcake themed kitchen
That’s me wearing my Matalan pencil skirt, I’d paired it with a fine knit sweater and felt rather Marilynesque until Lauren told me I was more school teacher than 50s siren!
That’ll teach her to say I look like a school teacher mwahahaha!
Doing it like a dude!
Once we’d finished trying on dubious sunglasses we moved onto wigs!
Carla does not look impressed with her short black bob!
Think I look like a cartoon character here!
Despite not buying anything in Primark apart from that awesome canvas I had a ball being silly with the girls and despite it being festival time here in sunny Edinburgh the shop was very quiet as we were there first thing in the morning.
The weather Monday afternoon was glorious so Carla and I headed to Portobello beach to soak up some rays/people watch. Unfortunately the battery on the camera died early on so I couldn’t take any more photos of us larking around 😦
Carla’s mini blankets came in handy!
Primark pumps, vintage bag & sunnies
And there you go that’s what has been keeping me busy these past few days.
