On Thursday, Kayvan and I were on the look out for a perfect military jacket.  
We started looking in Greenwich Market with no luck.  
We then headed over to Spitalfields market and made a mandatory visit to see Clare of Vintage Heaven (the name of her booth/stall at Spitalfields) 
and as usual her stall was filled with too many lovely items!!!!!!!  
When I turned the corner I met Roberto and Carolina from People of london
and they took a few pictures of my outfit, 
I hope to see them around soon!

If anyone has come across an inexpensive intricate
Mens band uniform or military jacket
please message me at ldvnicole@gmail.com

Your bag is killing me. I LOVE IT. Is it handmade?
As in, do you think a librarian with far too much time on her hands could create something like that?

My friend Hannah has that bag too! I have always been jealous of hers and now i'm jealous of yours too. The colour of your dress is amaze! I have been loving your adventures with Kayvan on Instagram. He is a very handsome chap. ;-) xx

This is definately one of my favorite bags!!! I hope you find one too so we can all be twins! Kayvan and I always end up meeting really cool old people, we are obsessed with them and they are obsessed with us!

Hello! :)

Nicole Eymard said...

I bought it as is vintage, but I think it was originally made in a kit.

Nicole Eymard said...

Have you considered finding a jacket with a good shape, fit, and color, and then customizing it? There's some pretty funky patches and such for that online.

*sharp intake of breath* I NEED everyone of those pieces! Sooo stunning! I'm a big military jacket fan - the perfect one is hard to come by though.
