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

I'm doing good :) Ooww....those Pop Art Comic Tights!?!?!? I use to own a pair, precisely just like them when I was a teen. Oh how I wore them OUT along with this miniiiiiii black leather skirt. The compliments I recieved from those tights to the mini skirt was CRAZY. Of course that was my day of FLAMBOYANCY...with the cute boob and blue lipstick. Now, i'm just the "girly girl" who 1/2 dresses in comfort. :::smiles:: They such a treasure hehe, seriously. You definitely have an keen eye for unique one-of-a king items!
Oh and it's cool, whenever you come by to chat it's always good fun insight to hear your views :) HOpe your day is cool.

I've always thought that vintage clothes make women look so sexy and graceful. There's just something about that era which was effortlessly glamorous.
