Maxi Dress, Leather Jacket – ASOS, Shoes – Office.co.uk, BagBelt – Angels’ Sale, Eagle Belt – Vintage, Faux Lambswool – Gmarket, Scarf – FCUK, Turquoise Ring – Spitafields Market

I’ll write more about the Angels sale soon, but this leather pocket-belt thing is one of the few gems I ran off with! On day 5 a PR came up to me and asked where it was from, and when I told her it was vintage military costume and that it still had dirt in the pockets and she actually yelled THAT IS SO COOL, DIRT FROM A REAL WAR!! No no no no, dirt from some movie set. Perfect pockets for spare batteries and memory cards… although it’s still kind of like burying them in soil.

  1. Funny LOL.
    I’m guessing the leather pouch-belt were used in the second world war films/tv series long long long time ago. Loved the dis-stress look though :)

  2. First off: I happen to think you look all mysterious and gorgeous in the second row pictures. And ahhh the shoes match the leather belt so perfectly! I would’ve prolly yelled that same phrase too, to be honest. Not only is it amazing, but a unique way to store things. Also, I feel like I should be playing the Indiana Jones theme song right about now…

  11. that really is SO COOL. it is like an 18th century russian peasant refugee version of the batman utility belt. you should store a string of paperclips in one of the pockets and throw it at enemies at bay.

  15. HAHA I love that reaction! I was just going to say that pocket belt is Indiana Jones-esque! Much better than a fanny pack!!!!! If only I had one of those when I traveled to Europe. and if only these sales happened in America as well!!

  43. That belt really is a wonderful find! I would love to go to an Angels sale one day. I doubt they’ll do many more though… Living outside of London can be such a pain sometimes! I love that it still has dirt in the pockets. It makes it seem like it has a story to tell. I would love to know what it was used in…
