The Leeds affordable Vintage Fashion Fair

Leeds Affordable Vintage Fashion Fair - 6th December 2009 - Leeds uni SU
To get into the festive spirit of things I thought I would do a spot of shopping. So me, my boyfriend and my housemate toodled along to the Affordable Fashion Fair in Leeds uni SU. There were so many bargains to be had, and it really was affordable! I was half expecting to find things really overpriced and not really my style, but I left with two polka dot dresses; one for a fiver and one for a tenner, some vintage keys to make into earrings and a christmas present or two! not bad I'd say!
We also made a short stop at the tea and cake stand. I had a cup of hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows and a slab of strawberry jam and cream cake complete with edible glitter: pure indulgance! there was also a variety of teas and mulled wine, cupcakes and treats, all beautiful and gorgeous looking! They were courtesy of 'The Marvelous Tea Dance Co' (who I recommend you check out... they are amazing: http://www.themarvellousteadancecompany.co.uk/home.php)
They are sponsored by possibly my favourite shop in the whole of Leeds: Rose & Co. I am a great lover of their beatuiful apothocary-style boutique and their amazing dresses in the downstairs of their shop. (the must also be checked out! http://www.rose-apothecary.co.uk/Leedsshop.html
These are my two main purchases: the blue 40's style polka dot dress only cost me £5! and the light blue polka dot dress was a brilliant £10! They make wonderful additions to my already sizable polka dot dress collection!
