for me i re-retrieve to my roots vintage *ahem which is now been imitated by the high street. for instance the "vintage collection" which in fact isn't actually vintage. what a rip off!.
or completely shone the high street and go DIY!
As always you know me it's a 50-50 thing when it comes to Vintage and DIY for me. this season the whole vintage thing is working for me i have the pastel coloured scarfs vintage of course, those 80's skirt which by the way, makes every one look good! and so on.....
any ways remember in my last post i mentioned that I've just met some of the most amazing people and it would be very selfish of me not to share them with you? . Well this time it's fashion wise. going around as you do trying to find people with similar interest as i, i found heather.
On a sunny Friday afternoon after college i spotted her wearing this amazing vintage dress which was very 60's, i took up the courage to ask her if she could please feature on my blog and where she'd gotten her stunning dress from. The answer? an high street store! i just love it when you just can't tell and when people still knowledge that you can make an item vintage as long as it can make it work . Heather did :)
We did a photo shot in which she brought in some of her amazing vintage pieces to share with the rest of the blog sphere! Enjoy!
Although high street i truly appreciate her sense of style. There is an element of femininity in there, and structure of outfits that contains poise, adventure, a sense of the modern girl. (who actually understands that you mustn't wear all your labels at once) and also carries her body shape very well.
Ah, the essential 40's dress.the simplicity, the sweetheart neckline, the colours and fabric. This is what i call Full House Vintage . love it . an original piece that still conveyed the style of the era which the garment first existed.
By the way, that tiny waist belt, see the silvery buckle on it? (above). It sparkles like a little diamante. just thought you should know.
I think the skirt might be cotton.
Hope you could zoom in on the embellishments on the skirt.
I also feel obliged to share with you my favourite Vintage hot spot in the UK! well, the website at least.
This website features places where exquisite vintage wears are sold. the gang travel a from London to Brighton, Birmingham and loads of other places and have featured Kylie, Kate Moss and so on. if you live in the UK, visit this website.
XO thanks for reading this long post just had to clear somethings .
