Last weekend we were in London, and ended up one evening in the increasingly hipster area of Walthamstow to visit family. God's Own Junkyard is a neon sign maker, you might have seen it featured on house programmes like George Clarke's 'Old House, New Home'. In such an amazing location it would have been silly not to take a few photos! This was quite the popular photo location. Whilst we were there a trio of gothic girls were striking some moody poses for their Instagram accounts. Their posing put mine to shame.
Cape: Car boot sale
Gloves: Dents via Car boot sale
Bag: Charity shop
Metallic brogues: Clarks
The fabulous houndstooth cape featured on my blog back in July (yes, capes are necessary in the British summer!), in a 1960s inspired look. Whenever I travel I try and make sure I stick to a colour palette so that I can mix and match, so for our London trip it was black and white. I always put a few colourful accessories in too, and I was pleased to wear my fabulous Dents gloves again. I love the little coloured buttons on the wrists. They were a £4 bargain too from a car boot sale, which is a steal for Dents leather gloves with a cashmere lining!
