Today I went to Portobello with my mum. It's one of my favourite places in London because it's got some amazing vintage shops and the market also has a lot of vintage clothes and furniture. It's also pretty close to my house unlike Spitalfields, which is my favourite place in London but it's so far away! I've actually done a post on where to shop in Portobello before so if you want to read that it's here: Portobello Market
Portobello has actually changed quite a lot since I last did that post though. A lot of the shops there are pop up shops so they change every few months. I noticed today that there are loads of really cool menswear shops right now in Portobello. I went in to a few to buy some Christmas presents and they have a great range of really cool makes such as HUF, Obey, Carhartt and alife so boys you should definitely check them out. I have a bit of an obsession with boys clothes so it was actually great for me too!
For myself I bought a vintage Barbour jacket, which I've actually wanted to for ages! It was originally £60 but I found a small tear in it so I managed to get it for only £40 which i though was a pretty good deal.
I then found this small vintage case, which I've also wanted for a long time! I wanted it for my room because I'm redoing it and I thought it would be cool for me to get a whole load of vintage cases to keep my things in.
The last two things I bought were two vintage bag: a clutch and a small black shoulder bag.
And here's my outfit post that I promised:
Jumper: Vintage from Beyond Retro
Shorts: Topshop (customised by me)
Jacket: Vintage (the one I bought today)
