Vintage Mondays: Pandora’s Wardobe, A Hidden Fashion Treasure Trove

I love vintage shops, and I was lucky enough to come across one a couple of days ago with some beautiful designer vintage-wear in it while on a trip to Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea. I love the name of it as well – Pandora’s Wardobe, implying secrets from a box wrapped up in beautiful things froom a wardrobe, very appealing (although excuse my reflection in the picture, entirely accidental!)

And there’s definitely some goodies in here which caught my eye, I saw a beautiful black and gold embroidered vintage evening jacket, a vintage silk Karl Lagerfield scarf and a beautiful collection of shoes (although I didn’t have enough money to buy anything!)

It’s nice to find a genuine vintage shop (and it’s on a whole road of junk shops, thrift shops and antique shops!) which you can walk along cobbled-streets and stop for a nice spot of tea and cake at the end of!

Happy Vintage Mondays!

Reflected Buildings

So I was walking across a bridge near my workplace while the sun was setting, and thought I’d take a quick snap of the way the buildings on one side of the bridge was reflected on the glass panes of the bridge. I like the end effect of this photograph, the buildings and colours were reflected so that it looked like some weird alternate reality colliding with another one (although I would have preferred a space-ship or two as well in the background!)

So although this is an everyday image that I walk past nearly every day, here’s a different twist on it. May you ever look at your world-view in a different way each time you look at it (and happy Monday!)

Cold Lakes and Sunny Skies

It may be sunny, but don’t be deceived by those bright yellow rays – it’s nearly 4 degrees outside and we’re all shivering away. Didn’t stop a bunch of students ‘studying’ out on the grass, which I thought made an interesting view (across the small canal that I was on the other side of).

It’s unlikely I’ll be seeing much greenery in the next few weeks, nor will I be visiting any parks any time soon, so here’s something to capture the very last of autumny-summer, especially now winter is really setting in!
