Vintage Bell Sleeve Blouse

Black Floral Embellished Dress - Fashion Union
Bell Sleeve Applique Blouse - Vintage
Sun & Elephant Charm Necklace - Mad Elizabeth Vintage
Black Fringed Boots - River Island

Here is it, proof that I do have clothes from stores other than Topshop. Working at Topshop we do get treated to some great discounts and first dips of delivery however it really bugs me that the majority of my clothes are Topshop. I have such a love for vintage clothes and enjoying finding independent brands too, however working at Topshop five days a week often makes it feel like buying from other brands is kind of pointless as the items don't get much wear.

This vintage bell sleeve blouse is an absolute favourite of mine and I can't believe it hasn't made it onto my blog yet - it is love. I scored it at a vintage kilo sale earlier in the year and have been layering it under dresses like this for a while. I love the shape of the sleeves and lace detailing. I've been asked a fair bit about this necklace which Mad Elizabeth Vintage very kindly custom made for me a few weeks ago, the little charms are so sweet.
