I've got various clothes-related things to talk to you about today.
The first thing is that I recently made a couple of my own tie-dye t-shirts. I've really been fancying one of Urban Outfitter's tie-dye tops recently but at £30 a go, that's not really something I can afford. Instead I bought a few packets of fabric dye from John Lewis and some cheap t-shirts from Tesco and Primark.
I'm pretty proud of the results. I only dyed two of the 6 or 7 t-shirts I have so there'll be more where that came from. The one on the right was a bit of a gamble as to whether the dye would work on top of the black but it did and I'm extremely happy with it.
The second thing is that I went to a vintage fair on Saturday. I'm a fan of anything vintage so I was pretty excited. I had reason to be. Everything was so beautiful and I wished I wasn't so skint. There was a mix of beautiful old clothes, shoes, accessories and trinkets but also some gorgeous hand-made things, and the best thing was, it was incredibly cheap. Doc Martens for £25 anyone?

I bought a pair of Levi shorts at a very respectable £12 and a 'The Strokes' badge for £1 because they're one of my favourite bands.
I also did a bit of high-street shopping after the vintage fair. I've been looking for a denim skater skirt for ages and I finally managed to get one!
Skirt: Topshop - £28
I liked this one because it's quite thick which means it'll keep me warm, and also there's a zip which makes getting in and out of it a lot easier. I reckon this might feature quite a lot in my outfits in the near future.
Ring: Topshop - £7.50
I also bought an eye ring because I've been sorely lacking in quirky little pieces of jewellery lately and we can't have that!
What do you think?
