>>Apologies for a back-to-back inconsequential piccy post but this was just to drop in and say that today was Bank Holiday Monday in UK, the last one in the year (save for Christmas and Boxing Day) so it was off to Hampton Court we went for the day where I was reunited with my blue floppy hat and where we took the newly acquired vintage brown rucksack on the day trip it so aptly deserves.  As a final postscript to the day as a Brick Lane trader, I broke my self-imposed rule of NOT buying anything with my day's takings (i.e. accumulating more crap after the sale of my old crap…).  No sooner had I packed up for the day, I spotted a guy selling a lot of vintage tan leather goods; bags, luggage and brogues and this rucksack had to be snapped up on the spot.  Currently it's being used in a co-ownership deal between myself and the boyf and also rekindles that pretty special back-to-school feeling that I will never EVER reclaim. 

So this is really just a post to say sorry for lack of posting today but it had to be done before September all kicks off…

    Invasive question, but here goes:
    Is that the Hussein Chalayan, Tyvek paper ‘airmail’ dress? If yes, how did you aquire it?

  15. susie_bubble says:

    Glowingdoll: No it isn’t…it’ the airmail dress by HK designer duo Daydream Nation…. I think the Hussein dress is in white and pretty much impossible to buy!

  16. The dress, the hat, the bag…
    I wish my life was so stylish!

    I had a bag just like that in high school but black. Cool but heavy.
    I’ve been searching for the perfect 70s floppy hat. Although I’m not sure how it will look with my new Agyness hair instead of long locks.

  24. Between says:

    is it a JCDC dress???

  25. Crystal says:

    That hat is quite brilliant indeed!
    It makes me so happy to see you wearing what looks like a dress with another black sheer dress over it. I just recently bought a black sheer dress to do the same layering effect. When I bought it I was thinking, “This is so Susie Bubble.”
    It makes me giggle a bit to see I was right.
