vintage?

playsuit: vintage from london | hat: rag & bone | bag: vintage | shoes: ancient greek sandals | watch: vintage cartier

i purchased this playsuit in july 2012 at a "vintage" store in shoreditch, london. it was one of those typical "vintage" stores which has a lot of the same kind of dress with the elasticated waist band. i am very skeptical about the authenticity of vintage products in those kinds of stores. anyway, i decided to have a quick look and came across this cute little playsuit. while not anything to write home about, the fit is perfect, the material is so soft and the colours are fun!

my sister gave me this bag from her trip to melbourne in 2005 (from memory). she got it from a "vintage" store as well. while i may question the validity of the vintage-ness, the bag is quite an incredible piece. thick, hard leather that has been stamped/embossed with what looks like a traditional thai design (i could be wrong and happy to be corrected). the clasp is also beautiful and intricately designed. smells vintage anyway.
