^ instax photo: fashion adviser friend sara, our friend the mannequin, and me. background: teaser swatch of the 50’s dress i purchased at radio days.
the plan was to get to the old vic for kiss me kate early, hoping to find some place interesting in the area. we found radio days, which swiftly became my favourite vintage store (their website does them justice). the warm and welcoming co-owner, lee, happily aided our dig through the sale trunks, whilst chatting and educating us in the nostalgic tunes (they never play modern music. obviously.). vintage shops often overwhelm me, but radio days exhibits and embraces oldie culture with kindness.
p.s. when i asked lee to snap a photo for us, he had never heard of instax. but he did have a polaroid on hand.
