Vintage shopping done !!!

















This morning I've decided to do some shopping in one of my favourite vintage shops, which is located very near my place. I think it is very advantageous  to do shopping over there, as there is no need to travel in a hot bus in a sunny day like the one we have today.
It is a great store, which has a great collection of pieces from 20s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. They also sell more recent fashion, however I had no interest in that particular section and so cannot tell you much about it....
I absolutely loved the atmosphere of the shop with some old ladies talking to each other and discussing the fact that retro fashion comes back and can be seen on the runways again. I must say that what they were saying is very true as I can see myself that everyone wants to wear vintage these days.

Anyway...I managed to buy two dresses as well as an oversized jacket, which looks really huge on me.
I have no idea why I adore oversized pieces so much, but anytime I try something like that on myself, I just feel like I cannot leave it on the shop hanger and so must take it home with me.
I also purchased four vintage ties, each very different and very special.
Another fact I need to admit is that I've got this thing for ties and cannot understand why some men, including my daddy for exmaple, hate wearing them....
The only problem I've got with ties is that I cannot tie a tie myself. However there is always some helpful hand ready to offer some support..... It is either my boyfriend or my friend Andrew, who can tie a tie in less than one minute. Master!
