Treasure Hunt in Trashy Places
Kingsland Road, and Dalston, is one of those areas of London that is yet to succumb to steel, glass and poorly dressed bad mannered hipsters. Hence my newborn love for the place. I set out this afternoon for a hunt. I needed a winter coat, and a cheap one. Because I am a student on a budget. Normally these hunts takes me to the wrong places and I get stuck with nothing at all. This was not the case on Kingsland Road. I Started off at the St. Vincent charity shop, and ended up carrying about 15 pieces around the shop before I got to the fitting rooms. I got myself a killer black wool winters coat from Benetton. It even looks a little metal! And, for the silly amount of 6 pounds I walked out with the jacket, and a long black skirt. I am just a few pyramid studs and a dry cleaners away from owning the best winter coat ever! Pics to come. For now, here’s a few pics from my trip, accompanied by the lovely Christel as per usual.
I will leave you with this for now. The morning is hand in day for Hidden Histories and I need my sleep. If I can get any. Luna, I damn you to eternal darkness!
