SATC & A Little Vintage Shop

Hello everyone!

I have been in uni today 10-7.30. I know. I'm not even sure it's legal to keep you in uni that long! Anyway seeing as it was a gorgeous day I was in a good mood :) I found out some exciting SATC news and had a spontaneous vintage shop (I MUST do this more!).

So...US Television are making a new Sex and the City prequel. How exciting! The new series is said to focus on how our favourite foursome become best friends in New York- Carrie, Samantha, Miranda & Charlotte. The show will be set in the 1980's so I am expecting some amazing outfits. Don't let me down Carrie!

It has been described by The CW Television Network as the story of a young woman who "comes of age in the 1980s, asking her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan". Ooohh.

Obviously I was dying to find out who would be playing the part of Carrie and I had also heard rumours that my beloved Blake Lively would be the younger Carrie (she would be PERFECT). It turns out this wasn't to be though :(. The lucky girl that bagged the sought after part of Carrie was 'AnnaSophia Robb'. I had literally never heard of her, but if you have seen the newest version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, she plays Violet Beauregarde (I IMBD'd her). Apparently Blake was too old at 24 (hmmpph). Here she is, she's only 18!...

Not sure if I can picture her as Carrie yet, but we will see! Now for my vintage shop, sorry it's going to be a long post!

Today me and my friend Lois were looking around for somewhere to go for dinner and ended up in a little quirky bar in Manchester called the Deaf Institute. If you are a student/live in Manchester you will probably know of it.

We noticed that there was a vintage sale on downstairs so being the typical girls we are, we obviously went for a little look even though we are both skint (oops). Lucky for us it was super cheap so it would have been rude not to buy something right? There was some stuff I loved and some stuff I thought would never wear that in a million years. I love vintage clothing when people know how to wear it, I HATE vintage clothing when girls think it is acceptable to walk around head to toe like an 80 year old and consider themselves 'cool' and 'quirky'. Nada. Anyway Lois picked up a gorgeous 80's inspired blazer jacket and I got this beautiful skirt which I think is perfect for summer....

White crop top- Topshop
Skirt- Vintage
Coral bandeau- Topshop
Tan wedges- Manchester Boutique
Watch- Michael Kors

As you can see I tried a few different ways I could wear my new piece! I love it, especially it being the lovely coral colour. All the vintage clothes at the sale were from Nancy & Frank Vintage and you can find them online at . Check it out! How cute are the bags & pegs my skirt came in ....

Has anyone ever bought vintage clothes from Nancy & Frank online? Hope everyone has a lovely weekend, I'm off to catch some Zzzz's !
