I wanted to shoot a new video for my channel and when looking around for what I wanted to base it on I found this awesome 'Pop Up' event 'Vintage Car Boot Sale' that was based in South Bank, London. So I headed up last weekend with Louis and Bas. The outfit I decided to wear was my Oliver Peoples Glasses, French Connection Cardigan, Ben Sherman x Jake & Dino's Shirt, Levi 511's and my Nike Trainerendor's.

For those of you who don't know what a car boot sale is, it's when you get all of the unwanted items from around the house / garage / storage etc and load it all into the car and go and sell it in an organised location out of the trunk / boot of your car. Very British, but very much like a Garage Sale.

I'm really loving the 'Pop Up' event culture that has been booming, it drives creativity and thinking outside of the box, which I'm all for. I'm always keen to attend any kind of 'Pop Up' event that comes to light, usually suggested by my good friend Nicole! So this event had loads going on, vintage cars, vintage clothes and lots of other items. Also an abundance of street food to choose from, it ticked a lot of boxes! One thing I did really noticed is that there was a lot different

fashion styles going on, which was awesome! However like I mentioned in my video I saw a lot of people stuck in certain eras, which I have no problem with people dressing totally how they want to, but I'm personally not super keen on getting stuck in an era when it comes to fashion. I really love taking inspiration from  different eras and merging them with current trends, like a super sweet fusion of style! But that's my personal opinion, I would love to hear what you think about this? Let me know in the comments below.

I want to say a massive thank you to Bas Marijnen for these awesome images of the day too, go and check out his website and say hello! http://www.basmarijnen.com and make sure you check out my video 'Vintage London' of the day if you haven't already.
