Dress - Coco Fenell, Leather Jacket - New York Flea Market, Shoes - Isabel Marant.

I love traveling and finding new flea markets, charity shops and any form of vintage retail therapy. I research avidly before traveling for our if town places to visit, antiques fairs and sometimes factory outlets - think Mui Mui and Prada in Florence - amazing!

I try not to come back with too much, I limit myself to a sensible level. Too many times I have had to pay extra luggage fees (think Mui Mui!). Last year I had the opportunity to travel to New York for a 3 day trip and we took hand luggage. Note to self this meant not bribing anything to big back, needless to say because I had to carry it.

Whilst there I came across a vintage pop up flea market - hello heaven! And I came across the leather jacket I’m wearing above. Super awesome and as equal in super weight!

I could not leave it. Every time I wear it I get loads of compliments and you can see why. It’s incredible and cost me 50 dollars plus I lot of strength but the strength was worth it!
