Floral, fur and some leather

Hey lovelies, 

In one of my previous posts (read here) I vowed to try and share more of our own style, so here we go. We will try and make it a regular feature and incorporate some of our vintage finds.

I do love this coat although I don't wear it often, I always feel like someone out of a 1970s black exploitation movie when I wear it! I picked it up a while ago at a New York flea market in Hell's Kitchen area, I think. Anyway, it was ridiculously cheap but it cost me more to get it dried cleaned than i bought it for, as it smelt like fleas had infested it!

My faux leather trousers is definitely my best buy of 2011, I’ve worn it to DEATH... I only wish I’d bought three or four.

The floral jacket from Zara was love at first site, I’ve noticed I do have a lot of floral jackets; prints and floral are something I tend to gravitate towards. 

The piece de resistance has to be my £29.99 boots also from Zara, (side note: Zara's rencent collections are killing it, they are defintely more go to store on the high street)  they are certainly not the kind of boots I tend to wear; I’m more of a chunky/block heeled boots kinda girl but they are ultra-comfy and I always feel rather sexy wearing them!

Watch out for our new vintage stock coming really soon to our store. It's been a while since we've done a photo shoot, this is mainly because we are on the hunt for a new model, our Muse, Jody is out of commission for a while. So, if you live in London and are interested in being the new face of Vintage Jumble Affair please drop us a message. For now, we have some lovely vintage pieces in store >>> click HERE.

Happy thrifting

Upcycling/DIY - neon yellow choker

Hey lovelies,

As some of you will know I’ve become quite an upcycling/DIY fanatic, click here and here to see my other up cycling/DIY attempts. I bought this choker in South Africa years ago, let’s put it down to peer pressure as I’ve never actually worn it!  
So, when I saw one of my fav DIY blogger A PAIR AND A SPARE's Sass and Bide inspired neon necklace (check out here), I thought this choker would be perfect for a bit of upcycing.  I love the outcome and I'll definitely be wearing it, I'll do an outfit post with it soon.

It's really easy, all you need is:
  •  necklace or piece you want to upcycle
  • neon and white paint spray
How to:
  • I would suggest you go outside to spray your piece
  • lay it down flat on newspaper and spray with the white paint spray first and leave it to dry first before spraying the neon paint - leave a few minutes between sprays so the paint doesn't pool.

One last thing, ENTER OUR GIVEAWAY - we are giving away a lovely navajo style feather earrings, check out more info in our last post HERE.

Broke Ass Wishful Thinking List...

So, Santa didn't come through this year and I've just checked my bank account balance for the New Year, and lets just say.... AHHHHHHH!

I've been surfing the net (my fav pastime) and OMG there so many things i need or actually i just WANT and none of them are in the sale.

So for January I'm on a serious budget, until payday.  I'm hoping from Febuary my aim is to buy at least one of the items on my 'broke ass wishful thinking list', I'll keep you posted on my progress. 

Recently I’ve been really drawn to prints, hences the leopard print bag and studded boots, and you can never go amiss with statement jewellery; I just adore the Garimoshi Necklace and the YSL ring, aren't they fab?
