My rather heavenly bargain at the Angels sale…

Cheesy I know, using the word heavenly, but it’s been almost two days and I admittedly still feel rather happy about what I came back with from the Angels sale, so yah.

Funny how, like I had mentioned in the previous post, people were literally pushing each other, and during the first half hour that made us very reluctant to dig in to find some stuff to buy, though having bought the bag we kinda felt like we at least should come out with something. But for me, somehow, all the pushing and shoving later on had turned into some kind of motivation, and pushed me harder toward the boxes, and so I digged in. And these are what I digged out of that.

(note: I bought a £20 bag, so I think I was pretty good at packing, really)

this pair of flourescent blue rather ridiculous 80's suburban wedding singer's trousers is surprisingly my favourite item when match with the classic red tartan cardigan

this is rather a significant example of what called born-for-each-other. love them.

What made me really happy about these stuff is that, I don’t need to do any alteration or fixing at all. There were a lot of amazing stuff at the sale but needed something done to make them work, but being a guy I would be too lazy to make the effort. So this bag of bargained-already-made-and-ready-to-wear is just simply perfect.

And even until now I’m still unable to work out how I managed to fit all these stuff (plus half a bag full of scarves) into A bag of £20. My newly found credit crunch nature I guess! :)

Hopefully during next week I will have another few shoots of what my friends (whom I totally lost at the sale) got. Some of them are natural vintage queens or clothes hunters so I have high expectation.

That’s all for now. I’m off. Have a lovely new week, nx
