I love, love, love vintage - clothes, furniture, jewellery - something that has a story is so much more interesting, non? And that is why i'm over the moon about this shirt. As you know I went to visit my grandad a few weeks ago and while I was there had a little look through some of my gran's clothes. And boy did I hit the jackpot. The shirt i'm wearing here was worn by my gran in 1978. The reason I can pinpoint the exact year is because she wore this shirt, and a matching skirt, to my mum and dad's wedding in 1978. Isn't that amazing?! When I was telling my grandad that so much of my gran's clothes have come back in to fashion he thought I was mad!
The picture isn't great but here is my gran at my mum and dad's wedding in 1978, wearing the shirt!

Now i'm not one for showing off, but how rad is my new bag? It's from the new season collection at ASOS and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. I love briefcases, in particular my dad's which features on my blog header. However I don't like to take his out for fear i'll break it, so this one answered all by bag desires. Chic, practical and damn sophisticated. Love.
