Clothing and other things: London October 2012

Ooooh... goodies....

Hat from Covent Garden market

Lisa modelling new hat, and with my new weekend bag I tested out on this trip!

Art Deco cufflinks (to share with Neil) from Circa 1900 in Camden Passage, Islington

And if you didn't see it elsewhere, here's the dress I didn't buy.  *sob* - it was a lovely 1930s dress from Annie's in Camden Passage, beautiful fabric, and the fit was fine, except on my back where the fact it was probably for a taller lady (oh to be Professor Celeste-Marie!) really came into play.  The bag hung like a sack on me and nothing in the world could change that.  Given the bias-cut and patterning it would have took a really serious vintage expert seamstress to even restitch it to fit me so sadly it had to go back on the hanger.  Gutted.  Sorry about the picture quality.
