Liverpool Vintage Fair

I really wanted to share these photos with you, and share this event too.

On Saturday I went to a Vintage Textiles and Clothes fair at St. Georges Hall in Liverpool. It was a lovely day with cakes and tea, as well as so many stands selling clothes, jewelry, curtains, bags and shoes. I think, this fair was extra special as it was held in the beautiful St. Georges Hall, which is actually breathtaking as you walk in. And I pretend I'm really cool most of the time, but I was in awe at this building. I took a few photos of the event and they turned out beautifully. I didn't think they would with the lighting, but it was on my side this time! 
I didn't buy much from the fair as I was still fairly skint. But I saw a beautiful floral 50's style dress. But at fifty pound I couldn't stretch to it. And a denim studded waistcoat, which was also amazing. I did manage to pick up a couple of bits though that were going at the cheaper end of the spectrum. If I had lots of money, I could have bought almost everything! 

I picked up these unworn vintage creepers. I never really saw the attraction in them, until I saw this pair. They're much less invasive than the proper ones, and have a brogue twist in them. They're very cute indeed. This peace bracelet was also very sweet, the lady handmade them with lots of different symbols and items hung on them. I was looking for an infinity symbol, but this one is just as nice. The best find, was this cuff I found rummaging by some empty stands. It has a ring attached and I love how simple it is, but how much it will stand out and catch peoples eyes. 

I have a few outfit posts from the weekend too on the way this week. Thanks for reading, hope you liked the photos!
