VINTAGE

Last week I went to the 4th birthday celebrations of My Vintage

I've never really thought that Vintage clothing was my thing, in fact I've probably been very ignorant to the fact that I thought Vintage meant smelly, old fashioned, un stylish, tatty clothing from dead people. Another misconception that I had was that vintage clothing just really meant paying over the odds for old, used, shoddy clothing. In fact vintage clothing is anything but shoddy. Clothing from back in the day is totally different from today's modern day pieces. It was so well made as it was made it last, so I was very wrong on this and I have firmly been put in my place. 

Within minutes of arriving I found around 6 items that I instantly wanted to try on. Of course not all vintage clothing, as well as modern day clothing for that matter, is not always necessarily my style. 
But I was pleasantly surprised as I have previously always thought that vintage wasn't for me.

Vintage clothing doesn't have to look old fashioned, obviously being head to toe in in it could give of that vibe and if that's what works for you than great. But I really don't think I could rock that look! 
Sticking to the odd vintage piece, wearing and mixing it with modern day clothing is more my thing. 

I ended up buying 4 pieces, 2 that I've added to my autumn wardrobe and 2 that I will wear on my holiday later this month. I also bought 3 scarfs. The items I chose were from the 60's and 80's  - who'd of thought!!! 

I am glad I attended the event, it was definitely was an eye opener and I have to say I am slightly converted and will be looking out for my next piece.

ROLL ON AUTUMN

Never in a million years would I think I would say these words but I'm so over summer! Not that we ever get a decent one in this country anyway.

I mean I do love the light nights, picnics, holidays and summer bbq's and we still have the whole of August left to enjoy it- and no doubt I will.



Not one to wish my life away but I am definitely ready for autumn in terms of autumn fashion. 

In hindsight it is probably due to me taking my holidays earlier in May and June and it feels like I've been living in shorts, summer dresses and sandals for months.

But autumn I'm ready for you!!

POP OF COLOUR

After spending 2 nights in London and attending a couple of blogging events, we had an afternoon free for shopping, sightseeing and a quick blog shoot.

The mild weather was perfect for shorts and a body. 

I started off wearing heeled ankle boots but quickly changed to my trusty flat espadrilles- obviously more shopping appropriate.

I teamed with my mustard coloured suede biker jacket.

PRETTY FLORALS






















It appears that pastel blue seems to be my go to colour of choice this summer. I've been wearing it all the time, my wardrobe is full of it, bardot tops, shirts, skirts, bags, everything.

I spotted this pretty floral playsuit last week and thought it would be great for my next holiday, but with the weather being so nice I decided to take it with me and wear it in London.

This playsuit isn't too short and has cute frill details on the shoulder and hem. It also has a wrap over front with a hook-and-eye fastener .

Playsuits and jumpsuits have always been my thing, a one stop wonder piece, just for the ease of not having to think what to pair it with, its just so easy to just throw on and go. I literally did just this, straight out of my case hence the creases.... It really could of done with a quick iron but time was short and I was in London and ain't nobody got time for that!

LONDON CALLING





















Last week I attended a press day/ blogging event in London hosted by CiCi Pr.

It was held in the fabulous Room 913 club at the W Hotel.  With cocktails, canap├ęs and a cool dj it made for the perfect place for brands to showcase their AW/16 and Christmas collections.

It was also a great opportunity to meet and chat with the people behind the brands and find out that little bit more, as well as taking a closer look at their collection.


Lots of celebs, reality tv stars, bloggers and journalists attended and Fake Bake were on hand to offer complimentary treats, as well as hair and beauty services from Dannique Hair salon and products from Label M.

I plan to post on some of the brands individually in the next couple of weeks.
