I found an outlet!
The big deal here is that I have never came across one in Brighton, and when the other day I was walking to the Indoor Market (a shop I have talked about before here on my blog) I saw a Pop Up one.
It will stay over the summer, and not only carries cool brands I don’t usually get my hands on here in the UK, but it also has a few second hand finds.
I bought 4 items from there. To be honest, I picked up a bunch of stuff, but ended up leaving down some and tried to limit myself.
The very first and best purchase is this second hand Coccinelle bag.
I don’t own any bags of this brand and never really paid particular attention to it, but it was just so cute and tiny I had to grab it. What I like about it is that it’s very compact, but has a longer shoulder belt so I can wear it two ways. Also, instead of having one zipper, it has 4 small ones on the sides that reach the centre, where you then close it with a button.
I have never seen a bag like this, so I’m glad I could add it to my collection.
The next 3 purchases are from the brand UNIF, and all of them were around £30.
Being summer (although not so warm) I bought a long tank top with the logo on it. Just easy to throw on under a jacket.
Then I got this striped sweater which I saw I while ago on the asos website, but thought it was a bit too expensive. Good thing I waited, so now it’s mine for less!
I love that it’s such a strange piece, with stripes and colourful letters, but the fact that is pretty long and can go over your butt, is a nice extra. In fact, I do like cropped sweaters, but I do appreciate longer ones more. They are cosier.
Final thing – and favourite – from UNIF, is this chunky mustard sweater. So warm and fluffy! I love it.
But then I did check out the Indoor Market, as I had planned, and found a few things there as well.
This isn’t a clothing item, but I had to show this fabulous llama. He doesn’t have a name yet, so if you have any suggestions, do leave them!
The one thing I always get when I enter the store, is a few rings. These (except for the one Felix gifted me a few months ago) were all £5 each. I think they look so dainty and wonderful, so I got myself 3 to stack up.
But finally, I wanted to show you 3 new pins I bought for myself. I got these a few days ago from Family Store, a very cool independent shop in the Lanes.
And that’s all. Not too much, but to me this seemed like a lot and got very excited to show you, as if I just got home and showed it to my mom or a friend!
Anyway, the llama is upset cause he has no name yet, so help me out.
