I bough this little beauty from Camden Passage Antique market in Islington
last year just after I moved to London, and has since become one of my
spring/summer wardrobe staples. It is early 1950s and hand embroidered
with the sweetest little farm work scenes. Unfortunately I have no idea
where it was made, but it has a certain eastern European feel about it.
I absolutely love Basket bags. Something about them just says sunshine!
This blouse is a 1950s men's cotton shirt that my boyfriend bought for 50p
at a market for himself, but as it was to small I got to keep it. I love the
red gingham print, and the fact that its far to big means I get to
experience the cool spring breeze!
And this is how I wore it all! I hope you are all looking forward
to summer as much as I am, even if your not getting a sneak peak
of the spring sunshine like us lucky folks in London!
