second hand finds #2

Few days ago I went to flea market with my mum. She didn't want to go to Tampere, though the flea markets are much better there. Anyway, in the small flea market in Nokia she bought me these few items:

Black jacket. It's good jacket for cool summer nights, or warm autumn/spring days. I haven't had a jacket for quite warm days, all my jackets are either winter jackets or leather jacket.

 Black, long vest. I actually like this more than I like my shorter black vest. This fits me better and I prefer vests to be either long or very short, not middle lenght.

 Photo frame. I joked that I want this, and mum took it seriously and bought this. It's a funny photo frame.. I asked mum what photo should I put to it, and she suggested a picture of Boy George. This picture of Boy George is taken by me, when I was at his concert in January 2008. It's a prove that dreams can come true.

I'm usually very strict with my money when I'm saving for something.. And at the moment I'm saving for my trip to London in October. But, as I got the stipend from school which was very unexpected income, I allowed myself to go to flea markets in Tampere next day and take a break from saving. And these are my hauls:

Top. Just a cute pink top with sequins.

Silver/black striped vest. Yeah, I have an obsession for silvery fabric.

A corset. I've always wanted a corset, but they're so expensive and I'm not sure if I'd like them enough so they'd be worth that money.. But I found this one, it's like an underwear corset, and happened to be just perfect size for me and not expensive. And it feels so comfortable! Normally I wouldn't buy any lingerie in the flea markets, but this was never used, even the prize and size tags were still attached to it.

UK ELLE magazine, 2009. I love to read fashion magazines in english, and finally found few of them in the flea market. Bought only one though. London calling.. Of course I chose this one, the cover was the most attracting. I love looking at the pictures in the fashion magazines..

Nancy, a memoir of Nancy Spungen's mum. I've read this book years ago, but I wanted to buy it because it was so cheap and I'd like to read it again.
