My blazer was made in Guatamala… and today I found a vintage jumper dress

I love writing a little post when I find something like this. That is the beauty of shopping in charity shops… This blazer stands out from the rest! I love an unusual print but I think prints with a difference are quite hard to find as the high street shops are always doing similar things. I know that you can get some amazing prints in high fashion but we can’t all afford that…unfortunately. This blazer has a bold leaf repeat print which I love because the crude lines in the print make it look like it was hand painted. The fabric is made in Guatemala and I think it looks typical of that part of the world. It has that bold Latin American signature.

Blazer Vintage Leslie Fay from Latin Smile £3.99

Snood and trousers H&M 

Top £2.50 Salvation Army

Just add some tights, a pair of ankle boots and a dash of red lipstick… a recipe for being warm and looking fabulous!
