Vintage Monday's


I paid my monthly visits to some Vintage shops in Digbeth this morning. The perks of living in a big city like Birmingham is the open access to a wide range of different stores that are sporadically placed around the city. As you can tell from my previous post, I really love Cow Vintage.The layout of the store is so welcoming and they also stock some of the most beautiful Vintage pieces.Although I didn't purchase anything from my little visit, I did fall in love with the two white shirts that you can see above. They both had the most beautiful and delicate collar details I've seen in a long time. The intricacy and doily inspired detail instantly drew me in.
I also stopped by at the Urban Village store that is around a five minute walk from Cow Vintage. They showcased the most perfect satchels and handbags.
To finish off, I've posted a mini collection of my outfit. With today's weather going from a beautiful cloudless, blue sky to heavy snow within twenty minutes, I decided to dig out my black, fur coat that's been hiding in my wardrobe since January and layer up.
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. What have you been up to?

  6. Oh wow, these are really wonderful finds! The delicate embroidery of the white blouse is so beautiful. It's so hard to find such lovely subtleties in our mass produced society!
