Winchester Vintage Fair

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Today I went to Winchester with my Mum to check out Winchester Vintage Fair. First of all I would like to apologise for the shoddy quality of these images, I remembered to charge my camera battery last night... but not to put it back in the actual camera, doh! 

Heading to Winchester I was really impressed with how cute the city actually is, I love all the old Tudor architecture and how they still have their Jubilee bunting still up. As it was just gone midday when we arrived my Mum and I headed to Ask and had ourselves a pizza each, totally delicious!

Inside the fair I found lots of very pretty things to fall in love with. There was a big range of dresses, shorts and playsuits including this black floral one which I fell in love with however it was too small. While there was lots of lovely things I did think that the pricing was a bit steep, things that I could find in Beyond Retro or Rokit were double what they should be. Having said that there were some amazing mint condition pieces to fawn over too.

After the fair we had a little mooch around Winchester and I got some a massive sheer shirt to wear as a kimono type thing. You can see the skirt I bought on the right and the top left underneath the bargainous DVD's I got in HMV. I got Blue Valentine, 500 Days of Summer and The Boat That Rocked for £10 total, amazing! I am a bit scared of watching Blue Valentine though as I am told it will make me w-e-e-p. We also went and checked out King Arthur's Round Table (geeky freak out) and bought sweets for an old fashioned style shop. All in all I had a lovely time in Winchester and am crossing my fingers for the CV's I handed out while there,

Hope everybody has had a lovely weekend?
