If you’re a regular to this post, you’ll already know that I love vintage – I. REALLY. LOVE. VINTAGE! So I’m always on the look-out for new places to go and explore where I can find some fab items.
I have two new favourite places: 21st Retro Vintage, recommended by the ever wonderful Kirsty; and Blitz London.
I headed to 21st Century Vintage a couple of weeks ago and I was amazed not only by how much stuff was crammed into every inch of the store, but also by the prices! The prices were incredible and there was so much I wanted to buy, but I was good and only bought two dresses. The dresses below cost a total of £8. Yes, £8 for two authentic vintage dresses! I couldn’t believe it – I think I’m still stunned:
The Blue dress is my favourite one. The colour is gorgeous and I like the cut a lot.
The next place, Blitz London is in my favourite part of London – Shoreditch, and is also a treasure chest of amazing vintage pieces. I really think it’s a good place for plus-size women too, because they have so many items with elastic – dresses, skirts, shorts, etc. Again, I was good and only bought a skirt, but I’ll be going back after payday to make a few more purchases!
Aren’t the colours amazing?!
This is what I wore on Blitz day. I ADORE this dress! It reminds me of the kind of dress a daisy-chain girl would wear – and that’s why I love it. The pattern is so fun and I love the cut at the top and around the waist. It’s longer than I would normally wear (my dresses get shorter and shorter as the year go by), but I felt fabulous in this all day. I paired it with a lightly coloured cardigan and the most comfortable sandals ever:

Always struggling with the wind!
I hope you’re all well and are having a wonderful weekend!
