♫ Seether - Careless Whisper
Today my friend Steph (who, by the way, is also my surprisingly patient photographer) and I ventured out to Hackney Downs Studios to hit up their amazing vintage kilo sale. Surrounded by absolute bargains at £15/kilo, I felt like I was in a little - albeit poorly lit - vintage paradise. From colourful sports jackets to gigantic plaid shirts, there was something for everyone. Well, as long as they're at least a little bit hipster. Speaking of which, the place was crawling (sometimes literally) with attractive men. I figured that - despite their general lankiness - at £15/kilo the men would have worked out quite expensive though, so I just concentrated on bagging some clothes... And I was very successful in my endeavour - I scored a form-fitting denim jacket, a suede vest, a German military hat, some jewellery and most notably a jacket made of neoprene! I am absolutely perplexed by it and am still deciding whether I like it or not. But it's certainly on the weird side, which is always a plus.

Not to go all deep on you guys, but isn't the whole scene so 60s Berlin, with the barbed wire and wall background? It's fantastic how far we've come as a society, but there are still so many people living in absolutely inhumane conditions in the world today.
