Faversham

Faversham

Here I am in the historic Kentish town of Faversham this weekend standing rather oddly! 

I'm wearing a vintage early 70s Biba wrap around jersey top, 60's floral mini, vintage bag, sunnies & pendant. The shoes I bought the day before from New Look, I've been after a pair of sensible shoes I can actually drive in and thought these canvas & leather brogues would do the trick nicely and they are super comfy to boot!

I haven't been here since I was a wee thing and was pleasantly surprised by the mix of quirky boutiques, good charity shops (by this I mean non colour coded!), junk & antique shops.
Famous for it's Shepherd Neame Brewery, the architecture is fab too, lots of rickety old houses and tudor shopfronts.

I managed to score these cute little turquoise crochet hotpants from an antique shop where the very kind lady also gave me a cardigan which came form the same person too for free! I don't know if I'll ever be brave enough to wear these, maybe on the beach?

You can totally rock those hot pants my dear, with a great pair of platforms you'll look fabulous.

What a cute outfit you are wearing for a fun outing! I love those dusty old antique shops, and those hot pants are HAWT! I'd love to wear them over leggings or opaque tights with thigh high boots!! I'm so envious!! They look painstakingly handmade too!! SCORE!

Great pics! Being an American and not being familar with a great deal of your geography I found it amusing that there is a place called Faversham, mostly due to this little ditty:

Oh man I would LOVE Faversham! And I adore those crochet hotpants - they are beautiful. You could totally wear them with nice thick tights and a turtleneck and some flat chunky boots. Or just over your bikini!
