Whilst I was in New York I was looking forward to going to the vintage market I had heard so much about in Hell's Kitchen, but unfortunately I couldn't find it!!! (If anybody could tell me exactly where it is that would be great!) I was quite disappointed but I did find some really good vintage shops in the East Village. I can't remember what the name of the shop was, but it was super cheap! I found two gorgeous beaded cardigans for $30 each, after seeing similar ones in a shop nearby for $70!!!

In the same shop I also found an original 1960s coat in a beautiful green colour, but it had a fur collar so I didn't get it. I did however get these two dresses; both of them need taking up at the bottom, and with a little bit of (poor) photoshop magic I can see what they will look like after I make them shorter!

I also went to the Lulu Guinness shop in Greenwich Village and got myself an adorable vanity case. I love the 50s pattern all over it! But I feel like it's too pretty to actually use!

I had a little furry friend supervising me whilst I was taking the photos, but she got tired and fell asleep! :)

I'm back in England now, unfortunately, but I had the best holiday ever ever ever! I love New York! I want to live there!!
I did manage to find a few good vintage shops, but not nearly as many as I hoped. I tried looking for the market in Hell's Kitchen but I couldn't find it, so gutted about that! I will take some pics of my finds and show you, but for now here's a little peek into what we got up to in America (We met real sailors!! Wooh!)
