Pink Ladies - Vintage Pink Jacket with Guitar Embroidery

A few weeks ago, Lord Dicely and I spent a lovely weekend in Blackpool where after getting rained on for a solid two days, we ducked into a row of charity shops. It turned out that fate was on our side as I came across this amazing find. Even at the price of just £3, I'm sure the people behind the desk never thought they'd get rid of it and I'd never felt like such a London hipster as I excitedly handed over three shiny coins. I have no idea if it's part of a fancy dress outfit, or literally someone's costume from a Blackpool show but it is incredible, and I felt like I was ready to front an 80s girl band as soon as I put it on!

I don't even know where to begin with how brilliant it is. From the faux pockets, to the pin-stripe cuffs, the jacket is a total monstrosity lucky find. I couldn't work out if the guitar emblem had been sewn on by the owner at a later date, but found it to be a pretty cute touch!
I know it's pretty silly, but for £3 I couldn't just leave it there. I genuinely believe it'll be a lovely spring jacket as the weather starts to warm up, and back in London where silly fashions don't get a second look, I think I can just about get away with it. At the very worst it'll be pulled out for DJing when I want to pretend I'm Jetta from The Misfits...

Until next time,
