Hannah's Room

Hannah's room reminds me of the dress up trunk my mum made for me when I was little. It was full of endless treasures, and I still pull out things now that I reclaim and wear. It was Hannah's birthday recently and her room is full of newly acquired treasures, two of which are the Peter Pilotto Kipling bag from Tom, and new Russell & Bromley shoes from her parents. While riffling through Hannah's rails I found this amazing Jean Paul Gaultier dress which I've yet to convince her to wear. And just thought I'd show off a bit - the cowboy is my present to the birthday girl, I embroidered a transfer I bought in Minnesota this summer onto a pillow case.

Fleas


After hearing so many great things about Preston, Charlie and I decided to go for ourselves. The market was a mix of absolute crap and hidden gems, the best kind. Amongst my favourite buys was my Dave and Shirley nameplate bracelet (we are now a happy trio on my wrist), loads of gold tat earrings that are keeping my ears almost permanently sceptic and some Clockwork Orange gone-wrong glasses. The glasses sit in my tear ducts so I can't really wear them. You win some, you lose some I guess.

A Gift From Preston

Some friends went to Preston Flea Market at the break of dawn one day this week. Amongst the treasure was this Claddagh earring (only one) that Hannah picked from a tray of trinkets and gave to me. Its made my week. (Maybe month). Hannah also bought 3 pairs of socks for a pound - the Louis Vuitton ones are amazing.
