I love the timlessness of a classic vintage piece.It can be reworked over and over again and still look special.
I was introduced to an amazing vintage emporium by a friend. It is a large warehouse full of clothes from every era.Top traders from the likes of Portabello Road Market, visit there on a regular basis seeking out vintage treasures. Clothes are paid for by weight. Hence, I was able to pick up another vintage coat(hooray!) a pair of original plus four trousers, a Saville Row shirt in original packaging and a black dress all for ...£20/$31.28!!!
The warehouse is hidden away in a residential area. It is a vast, dusty place and wearing gloves whilst searching through the hundreds of sacks of clothes is highly recommended. As a fashion retailer, I understand the lucrative business opportunity before me, however I end up keeping everything myself! I have also decided to pick up some pieces for those who follow me on my blog and present them as giveaways. I have all ready gathered a few pieces and will be launching the giveaways within a couple of months.
Most of the vintage pieces featured in this post are from Rokit. They have a currency convertor on the site and ship all around the world. Shipping to the U.S is around $10.95

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I spent yesterday with a friend who wanted to view a property in Wimbledon (where the Wimbledon championships take place). We passed briefly through Wimbledon Village, which is a simply lovely place. There are lovely independent boutiques, with all sorts of fashion goodies.Somewhat pricey however, but still great for window shopping. I love to visit Wimbledon Village in the summer - it's a great place to people watch and an enjoy a cup of tea. There is also a farmers market, offering delicious fayre such as homemade jams and freshly laid eggs.
We arrived at the property, only to be locked out as the developer had given us the wrong keys. We soon gathered an audience, as my friend attempted to try the lock with the wrong keys seveal times. I didn't mind the audience as I was wearing a pair of my favourite shoes - silver dolly shoes with a bow, which I actually bought from a childrens shoe department for about £15/$24.
We gave up and went home to a lovely roast dinner with all the trimmings.
I have selected a few pieces from independent designers,mainly from the U.S (you talented lot you!)
