GIMME THE LOOT | 18.9.16

When I hear the word vintage I think of pound symbols and sad looking bank accounts, but I know a place with retro pieces that we can certainly afford. Loot, which is located in the heart of Bristol (just next to the central bus station, if you're stopping by on public transport then you've got to pop in!) is an emporium of hand-picked gold dust from simpler times. They have a hefty amount of sports team sweaters, old school Levis and an unreal selection of band tees. I know, my idea of heaven, if only it was my personal closet!

There are tons of second hand shops here in Bristol, like the many gracing the streets of Gloucester Road and Park Street, but Loot has something about it that makes it a blast to shop in. Whether it's the old-American vibes, the killer tracks they play or all of the incredibly cool clothing they supply, they have it all. I may be biased as it's everything I love condensed into one room, but I really can't think of anywhere else I'd rather buy my thifted goods from. Charity shopping is fun and all, but you're not always guaranteed a good run, so if I'm stopping off here I know I'm not going to leave empty handed.

As if browsing Loot wasn't enough, I was lucky enough to spend the day with the team shooting some looks for their website, which was a lot of fun. It's always interesting being in front of the camera rather than behind, so I'm excited to see my little face gracing their website. Keep an eye out for me! Although you can be sure that I'll do a post sharing some of the images they shot and styled soon.

If you're not a Bristol local then be sure to check out their website, if not for my mug, then for the many vintage pieces that are also available to buy online!
