This is my somewhat historically inaccurate attempt at being a bit of a teddy boy.

The top is vintage from the 80s. It was probably an older lady's favourite bowling top. Something she wore on a Friday night to "jazz things up". I like making up stories for my vintage clothing. Wondering who wore them and what they did in them is particularly intriguing. Maybe they won the lottery in this garment, or wore it on their first date with their lifelong love.

The creepers are from a gothic boutique and are Demonia. I wouldn't recommend them as the soles fell off after the first wear and they are wearing away remarkably quickly.

The coated jeans are from Glassons. The pose makes them look a bit ill-fitting, but I assure you, they fit amazingly (almost as good as their super stretch skinny jeans).

The sunglasses are a gift from my brother, the Christmas before last, and they are by Le Specs.

Do you buy secondhand/vintage clothing? If so, what sort of characters do you think wore your clothing before you? Drop me a comment!

Very cute. When I shop vintage, I think some sort of 80s valley girl probably wore the items. I love 80s films and the style so I tend to go to thrift stores with them in mind. :)

I love that you make up stories about your vintage clothes! Haha. It's fun! I do sometimes wonder about some of my thrifted jewelry or handbags...like...what kind of little lady wore this in a previous life? Is she still alive? So strange. Anyway, you look awesome. And I am following =).

Such a lovely outfit! The teddy look is fabulous and green really suits you! I love to imagine who my vintage clothes came from- Recently, I bought a wool 50's A line skirt with a mexican feel to it. The mind boggles!

I love this look. OMG you're so pretty. I have quite a lot of thrifted clothes and one proper vintage army jacket which I think is from the '80s. I sometimes think about the people who might have worn the clothes before me and wonder what they're doing now if they're still alive <3
