Autumn/Winter is finally here! As much as the rain annoys me I do love routing through my jumpers and coats and coming up with a warm and cosy outfit. I knew the weather had hit me when I wanted to make squash soup and visited the Veg Van outside the Rusty Bike this week and picked up this little gem of a squash. The van’s there every Thursday evening, don’t miss out.
I love the market in Gloucester Green but the vintage stuff is only there on a Thursday… or so I thought. As I was walking through town yesterday I spotted the sign that the market was on. I was happy to find my favourite vintage stall there and spent a good 30 minutes routing through. There is everything from 80s jumpers to vintage Barbour to modern staple pieces. There is also a really great coat stand, selling wool and sheepskin pieces from between £10-£15.
I picked up two pieces from the market. This beautiful yellow dress by Kate Cooper. After a google, I discovered it’s a vintage inspired Irish fashion brand owned by the fashion house Michael H. I loved the 50s style of it but when I got it home the zip broke off at the bottom – so if you can advise how I can fix it, let me know!
The second piece was this fab wool coat by ‘Maid in London’ – I couldn’t find anything about this brand. Might be new, might be old; I don’t know but I love it. It’s a lovely colour and suits the autumnal trees and landscape but is not so dark. I’ve had to give it a good old hand wash, as with most things from markets they need a good few washes before they smell and look their best!
Visit the market – it’s every Thursday and now *I think* every Saturday. There are plenty of gems to be had.
