Shopping in style - the vintage way

I'm fairly new to the whole vintage craze (I know, I know) but recently I've taken to having a good old rummage around Rokit - a vintage shop close to my office. It's a great way to spend the lunch hour - I don't have huge amounts of spare cash at the moment but an hour of window shopping sans Junior makes me feel human again, without depressing myself that I can't buy the latest Farhi offering.

Today saw my first vintage purchase - a Gucci belt bag. It was a snip at £10 and I've been looking for a bag that will be practical while I'm pushing the buggy round, so it's a double winner. Brand new, these bags retail for £320. So, it's official. I'm a vintage convert. It's my first vintage purchase, but it definitely won't be my last!
