To Auction We Go

To Auction We Go

I have a mild obsession with going to local auctions lately, with the hopes of maybe bagging myself a kitsch mirroed dressing table with a matching stool at the mere price of ¬£30?  Ok, that's a wild and distant dream.  But home furnishing fetish aside, I was intrigued to find that our old friend is once again holding a .  Nope, not of the tenner-a-bag sort but a Bonhams auction, where prices go into that special and exciting Cash-in-the-Attic moment. 

Still I have been pleasantly surprised by the pieces that could sit happily in an outfit.  Trawling through the , I picked out some of them which have pretty extraordinary beginnings… a as worn by Johnny Depp in the Man Who Cried that I see over my grey AA vests and Preen leather trews…
worn by Prince Reynart from the 70s' series of Dr Who with my Richard
Nicoll gold lame trews (exactly the same shade as well…freaky…)…
a also from Dr Who that has a pale pink paisley
pattern… a from Black Adder that has some
beautiful ruching going on… from The Ideal Husband. The teal and the
orange velvet is really working for me. The skirt would have to go but
the jacket as a dress coat over a t-shirt dress? …yessh…
Last but not least though is a as worn in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Yup, monkey 'effect' fur strikes again and this one is also complete with hulking shoulder pads.

    That’s the kind of thing I would die of starvation for. I’ve never been at an auction… but this stuff always bring me so close to bankruptcy.

    Jeez these are cool! Shame about the mean prices. We’d all love a bit of Dr. Who in our wardrobes.

    I thought the estimated prices seemed surprisingly reasonable, especially if you are a film obsessive, they don’t seem much more than the item would be new.

    That bullfighting jacket is so cool! And the fact that Johnny Depp wore it is even cooler.

    the man who cried, a visually beautiful film. cate blanchett and john turturro (seriously an UNDER-rated actor in my opininion) were the true scene stealers.

    The first jacket is adorable, but the monkey one…not for me.

    Ooooh, I want that matador jacket! It’s so beautiful. I seem to be a sucker for gold details on anything.

    I would love Miranda Richardsons Queenie dress from Blackadder II…in fact anything from Blackadder or Dr Who would be cracking thing to own.
    Alas most of these items are well beyond my modest budget but I had great fun to trawling through the auction catalogue though 🙂

    Sadly, I reckognized the black furry jacket right away. Oh the fashion perks of being a Potter-obsesee.
    Even if I’m not planning on buying (which I most def am not), it would be incredible to see some of those lovely pieces in real life. I’m dying for one of those military coats, espesh the first one… and it’s been on Johnny Depp’s skin?!!? I’m sold

    That black fur coat is no doubt real, and made from goat.
