I'll get you, my pretty

DRESS: F&F, SHOES: OFFICE, BELT: N/A & NECKLACE: BRITAIN DOES VINTAGE FAIR

I really like costume jewellery, probably because I like make believe and I certainly can't afford the real mccoy. There was something particularly mystical about this beauty in particularly, something bewitching about its emerald green tone. I later discovered its uncanny resemblance to the pendant Elpheba wears on Once Upon a Time. I also think it's frame is just absolutely charming. There's a real sturdiness to this necklace, which really differs to many high street alternatives which I'd probably not have nabbed for the happy price of a tenner.

I picked it up at a Britain does Vintage fair, which I just wanted to selflessly promote. I've attended a fair few fairs in my time, but this one really does it for me. Admittedly some of the stalls are well out of my price range, but I've also picked up a mini skirt for a £10 and a full skirt for £20, which are again competitive prices for high street alternatives. They seem to particularly do them in uni towns. I'm lucky in that in my town everyone seems to have the initials JW carved into their chest, so I don't have to fight people off of a rail for a 1950s full skirt, I can't say the same about elsewhere.
