Last weekend I went to visit the fabulous Horrockses Fashion exhibition at the Museam of Fashion and Textiles. The exhibition tells the story of the pioneering ready-to-wear clothing manufacturer and showcased off-the-peg style of the 40’s and 50’s in a range of vintage dresses including day, evening and beach wear. The collection was awash with […]

I’m so envious of everyone who went to the first ever vintage festival, Vintage at Goodwood last weekend. I’ve read a few raving reviews and seen lots of gorgeous pics of super stylish ladies and gentlemen spanning the decades. The sporadic rain didn’t even put a halt to the glamour! As a vintage lover I […]

…but this fab croc skin look bag is from Primark! I don’t normally shop there to be honest, I would like to say it’s for ethical reasons, but the truth is I don’t want to look like all the other ‘tunic and legging’ clones on the highstreet, and most things I have bought from there […]

Have fallen in love with this Coral roses oversized cropped tee (from Topshop) and am trying really hard not to buy it! Have already spotted a few girls wearing it teamed with leggings and a long gold pendant. Such a great vintage-y look for summer! (florals are huge yet again) and the loose oversized style means […]

Following the trend for all things vintage, swimwear goes super cute and retro for this summer. Check out this totally gorgeous 50’s movie- starlet-inspired collection from Mama Maria. Each vintage-esque bikini and bathing suit is designed to accentuate the figure in a more demure and modest fashion-putting the fun back into sunbathing. Key details include […]

  This spring it’s all about 80’s inspired acid wash denim revival and it wasn’t long before I spotted an uber trendy girl on the bus sporting a cool denim jacket in the palest hue (the only way to wear it) looking very chic teamed with leggings and a slouchy tee. Never one to miss […]

  How Prada-esque are these gorgeous vintage feel oversized shades from H&M. So on-trend with cut-out detail at the side and girly  butterfly shape. Love the berry shade too, a simple way to update your summer look and a fab alternative to brown or black  frames. And, quite  frankly, at a credit crunching £5.99, it […]

I am addicted to online shopping. And my new found (if not slightly worrying) shopping addiction has been fuelled by the eagerly awaited Barbara Hulanicki Collection, which arrived at Topshop yesterday. Like any modern day fashionista I skipped the catty store sprawl and logged in to preview the collection online (not quite at the early morning launchtime of […]
