Young and coffee in varying degrees, Kat also says stuff @ThoroughlyMode

There's nothing like the feeling of sporting a fabulous item of clothing that no one else has, and shopping vintage is one of the best ways to enjoy this feeling on a weekly basis. Absolute Vintage near Spitalfields, can help you achieve this buzz – they claim to have the largest collection of vintage shoes and bags in the UK, and they get new stock in EVERY TWO DAYS so there's plenty of turn over and opportunity for fashion discoveries.
Their stock is arranged by size, AND COLOUR, which makes it very easy to find what you're looking for if you're looking for something in particular. This is especially helpful when you're vintage shoe shopping. Back in 'the day' people wore a lot more colours on their feet than we seem to want to today, and it's far more fun to shoe shop here than it is on the high street – just be careful not to stray out of your size range as that way lies disappointment, these are all one off finds.
As well as having a thing for shoes and bags, the Ab.Vin. team also seem to love things with a bit of sparkle to them. But their buying eyes must be pretty good, because they've been voted one of the TOP 100 stores in the UK.
