Portmanteau Diary: Style Bubble Yard Sale



As most of you from the fashion world know, Susie from Style Bubble was hosting a yard sale with Save our Shoes, Park and Cube, Discotheque Confusion, Frou Frouu, Style Slicker, Geisha Rock, and Style Salvage. Despite being an almost two hour trek from my house, it was worth it - the bargains I snapped up speak for themselves and I had the best chocolate cake since childhood and got to hang out with my dear friend Fiona from Save our Shoes as well as meet lots of new and stylish people and a ferret.


For the occasion Lira Leirner the Portmanteau is wearing:
White cream firefly patterned Lira Leirner dress
Calvin Klein tights
White Diesel leather flats
Black Yorkshire Pearl Bangle
Cream Le Pliage Longchamp bag
Briwn H & M braided hair headband

Susie's stuff was attacked and taken into possession to a great extent before I arrived, leaving me all the amazingly cheap still awesome £1 pieces others had overlooked
Fiona and her awesome necklace
The bearer of that bag is surely a fashionista
Gorgeously dressed down, just coming from a photo shoot she modeled, it's Supersweet, the girl who volunteers for Pants for Poverty and writes the blog His & Hers. Fiona managed to collect £76 in raffle tickets for them!

On my way home I took the Zielasko sisters to the station and as per usual, Holloway road elevators were stuck so we used the staircase, which turned out to be a lot more fun! Image courtesy of Alicia Zielasko from Alice Point
