My rather rubbish weekend loot

Well heres my bargains from the weekend - wasn't really trying hard this week, only managed 2 charity shops and the rubbish car boot. Finally got 2nd HP book in hardback, only first one to find now! Also picked up the other 2 books for the grand total of 70p. The paperback looked deliciously trashy so had to have it, and the 'My Guy' reminded me a bit of Bunty, my pre-teen love.
Turned out to be a hilarious read - apparently this magazine ran until 2000, but I have no recollection of it whatsoever. This volume is from 1978 to early 80s, and has some fab fashion features and 'interesting' photo stories (remember photo stories? Haha!)
Loved the style in this shoot, actually some of the stuff is very similar to the high street now - except this stuff was from Littlewoods and British Home Stores (thats right, pre-BHS :))
Funnily enough, my mum and I were remembering C&A the other day (my bro and I used to be dragged round it every Saturday, it was absolutely our most hated shop!) I think I want all these blouses tho...
Some actual stars used to model for the photo stories, like Alex Kingston...

...and my personal favourite, Hugh Grant, haha!

  2. I used to have My Guy! It had the best pop posters. Leslie Ash was another one of the models who was in it a lot.
    I actually bought one of my friends that book (it's only a couple of years old, I think) and we spent hours reminiscing. xxx
