Trendy Vintage Jackets/Coats this AW2013

Usually, i love hunting for vintage pieces in and out of London, at vintage fairs, markets, vintage shops etc. At the same time i=I have been browsing the net for more inspiration on Vintage Jackets or coats for this autumn and winter season. I cant get enough of them, still i can not have them all :). So i am sharing with you my exclusive finds online.

Anything you find here is available at this time and might be sold in a few days times. So if you find something you like, best thing is go for it as quick as possible. Vintage items are unique unlike what you buy in the shops, its pretty hard to find another person with the same piece, and that is why an exquisite piece usually won’t be on display for that long: (click on caption to go to site)

AW 13 Vintage Finds

Autumn winter season can be a little gloomy (when it does descend upon us); luckily there is a slight delay in its arrival, thanks to global warming- its a catch 22. Wrapping up in style can make Autumn/Winter such a fun season to. As an avid collector of vintage fashion among other things, I have been out foraging for vintage Autumn/Winter frocks. coats and accessories.

First item I found was this trendy Echtess Leder women’s Retro Vintage Tan leather jacket from the 1980s. It was “the” fashion piece to have in those days.

First time I wore it, family and friends could not stop complimenting on it. I found this gorgeous piece of vintage fashion at the infamous +Old Spitalfields Market Vintage Stalls -V&S Boutique. Once I laid my eyes on it, I knew I was going home with it…

African Market @ Old Spitafield Market

The Old Spitafield Market is one of my favourite markets in London. Its has been open since 1638. At the time, East London was part of the rural area. As the population grew, Charles the II re-established the market in 1682.

It was the last Bank Holiday weekend of the year, Summer is slowly coming to end, still, the sun is smiling down on us. This was the day of the Sensational African Market everything inspired by the pulsating African culture; Old Spitafield Market was show casing a selection of the most talented African designers,

Shoppers were spoilt for choice with original and ethical fashion, accessories, jewellery, not forgetting arts and crafts, home-ware, natural beauty products and the list goes on and on. All I can say is -do not miss the next event. I know I won’t.
