Cheryl Cole And Kate Moss Get A Paint Job…


I’m pretty certain that is this is the BEST graffiti I have ever seen in my entire life. Got to love London for this man… and thanks to Luke for spotting it. I think me and Tom.i.am will definitely be getting print out’s… BOOM!

Don’t All Rush At Once BUT… Vintage CHANEL At Blondie Boutique.


I was dashing out on my lunch today and was stopped in my tracks….

Apologies for the rubbish pic, I’ll [EDIT] this tomorrow and it’ll be much better!

I work right beside Blondie Vintage Boutique in Spitalfields (East London) and walk past this little shop every day to/from work/Tesco. FYI, Blondie Vintage Boutique is by the same folk as Absolute Vintage (located just round the corner). Blondie generally stocks more high end Designer Vintage goodies, but they very very very RARELY showcase these treats in their window; so as you can imagine I was most definitely stopped in my tracks.

I absolutely LOVE the classic chain print and wrote a post on this a month or so again, here>>>> My Current Obsession… Chain Print

So this Chanel Vintage bomber with chain print is AMAZING! Also, check out the Vintage silk scarves – to die for!

Additionally, I spy the Vintage Moschino belt I have hanging in my belt closet; I wonder how much Blondie are selling theirs for….

Oh DEAR oh DEAR. Just realised how absolutely link heavy this post is! Oh well, hope you enjoy! 🙂

Alice has died – I need a new bicycle.

ALICE R.I.P: May 2006- June 2009.

It’s official, my absolutely beautiful little vintage bicycle, also fondly known as Alice, has died. Her chain broke on  a trip to Tesco and because she is an antique no chain is replaceable. Of course I am beyond devastated as she is my pride and joy, however we have decided to keep her as an heirloom and I am now on the search for another bicycle. Alice is also not replaceable and never will be, but alas I must move on, and frankly I can’t afford TFL’s ridic prices, nor can I tolerate their lack of actual transporting. Therefore cycle power it is!

I’m after a little shopper – Alice, to be honest, was a little too big for me, hence why I fell off (I couldn’t touch the floor when I was sat on the saddle), something like the below would be perfect! I’ve got the basket off Alice, so having a basket on the front isn’t a complete necessity; nor is colour because I’m likely to spray paint the new bicycle gold 😀

I can collect from London (and surrounding areas) and can pay cash on collection or you could even have a listing on eBay and I can pay via Paypal and have you send it via courier – whatever is easiest 🙂

These boots are made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do…


Yesterday we went ‘holiday clothes shopping’, yet I walked away with these amazing holiday-not-so-much boots! I purchased these beauts from Rokit on Brick Lane, after failing to find some sandals in either Blondie or Absolute Vintage. Also, notice the green pen marks! Must mean that their a sample! Amazing. I love them even more for it! It means they’re completely unique and individual! AND they fit like an absolute glove! 😀

If you know who made these into production do let me know! Unless of course they were never made and I have the original one-off!

Tatty Devine S/S 09: The Magpie Collection.


Being as superstitious as I am, you’d probably think I’d be totally opposed to the new S/S 09 magnificent Magpie collection… however, I’m more attracted to it than any of the previous collections… I think.

The Magpie collection is absolute genius, and in a good karma style, all pieces are sold in pairs, to avoid the old ‘one for sorrow’ superstition; therefore, all pieces can be able absolute joy to wear!

My favourite piece of the collection is the magpie necklace, complete with shiny swarovski crystal dangling between their beaks. Afterall, magpies are renowned for their love of shiny things…

Magpie Crystal Necklace, £48.00.

(image shown is around actual size).

The Swarovski crystals complete this necklace with stylish pizazz! The birds are 11cm wide and the chain is 32cm.

Magpie Earrings, £24.00.

(image shown is around actual size).

Pair of Magpie Brooches, £61.00.

(image shown is around actual size).

Pair of Magpie rings, £12.00.

(image shown is around actual size).

These rings are a pair, two for joy!

Each pair contains two different sizes.

Looking forward to the A/W 09 collection from Tatty Devine; they never ever cease to amaze!

JUDY PINK, by Tatty Devine.


I had this necklace made by Tatty Devine (www.tattydevine.com) for my graduation, last year, as a surprise:) It’s like my own version of the infamous ‘Carrie Necklace’ as worn by the wonderful Carrie Bradshaw herself in Sex and the City.

I must say, these necklaces are super fragile… as I found when it got caught in my scarf. Devastated at the snappage between the P and the I, and the fact that I knew James would be upset, I tried to get the necklace fixed without him knowing… I’m rubbish and told him everything.

I emailed Leigh at Tatty Devine, and the very next day my necklace was on it’s way back to Brick Lane, London, to be fixed. The customer service at Tatty Devine is beyond impressive. They charge £5 for items to be fixed, which I think is extremely reasonable. In addition, the day after, I received a phone call asking if I wanted the charm and chain replacing. I said ‘no’ as they were both fine and it was just a matter of the P and I being glued back together, professionally. Within a week my necklace arrived back on my doorstep, Recorded Delivery of course, I opened the beautiful packaging to find they’d actually replaced everything, the charm, the chain, and the lasercut lettering; all for £5! How good is that?! Very good is the answer.

I adore my necklace:) It’s very individual, and clearly personal to me. PLUS, its a talking point:) “Who is Judy Pink?” “My cheeky alter-ego” ;o
