10 things you hear when you are a vintage fashion fan

When you love vintage fashion, the people you know and love who don’t quite get it, are always pretty fascinated by us. Many find us a little “odd”, something I sometimes revel in.

A stunning beaded 1960s vintage maxi dress

While shopping at The Summer of Vintage Festival last month I literally fell in love with a vintage maxi dress. It was quite pricey as well as a “going out” dress, something that I don’t do much so I just couldn’t justify buying it BUT it was so bloody gorgeous that I could not resist. […] Read more…

Get The Look: Kate Middletons Boho Style

Anyone who loves  fashion won’t have failed to notice Kate Middleton’s boho style seen on her recent trip to India and Bhutan. She has embraced a relaxed modern vintage, late 60s/70s style with paisleys, patchwork cottons, long earrings and  maxi dresses with deep red tones.

Wearing vintage to the office by Kate Beavis

10 ways to wear vintage fashion to the office

I used to wear vintage a lot when I worked in a corporate office. While most of the time I looked wonderful (even if I say so myself!) there was always a fine line between looking great yet professional and being known for my funny clothes rather than my on point Power Point skills! So how […] Read more…

My Vintage Fashion Round Up

Last week was hot, it was cold and boy did it rain! I managed some vintage fashion every day as part of #dressupjune.

Vintage Fashion on the school run?

It’s one of the last rooms to be done in our five year renovation project and I’m really looking forward to creating my 1970s meets 1920s boudoir! However, what was clear is that I have a […] Read more…

10 Vintage Fashion Wardrobe Staples

I have an eclectic vintage fashion taste. While some dress to one era (which I am quite envious of) I prefer to mix it all up. I love my fashion too much to stick to one era, I love the fit and flare styles of the 1950s, but then again I love a 1970s peasant […] Read more…
