I was browsing through the Miss Selfridge website today when I spotted a few must haves. In general I’d much rather wear vintage clothes, the 1940s and 50s being my favourite eras, but finding vintage clothing in anything above a size 12 can be challenging and so I tend to look for modern vintage inspired pieces. I love these.
I think I also need this handbag, although I’m torn between this style and their satchel version. Ok, yes I have millions of vintage handbags, but I love leopard print and these are vintage inspired in shape.
I also love these dresses from Littlewoods, and would quite like to buy Holly Willoughby’s figure too.
I’ve decided to do a load of EBay listings today, mainly vintage bags, to fund some of the above. At least I don’t need to buy an footwear to go with them. I’ve got my Evans biker boots (my calves are far too chubby for standard shop boots), 80s black slouch boots and 80s brown leather and suede boots. I dread the day that my trusty 80s boots die. I’ve had them both re-heeled numerous times and they’re just sooo damn comfy. Boots, the above dresses, my beautiful new Per Una coat and black tights or leggings and I’m sorted. I’ll start digging out the pashminas and vintage leather gloves when it gets even colder. Oh I love winter clothes, can you tell?
Here's a few things that I've put on EBay.
Love the red dresses, and your Per Una coat is gorgeous. I bought my Per Una coat in the sale about three years ago and still love it. Its black with ribbon roses all over the sleeves and collar. Winter is definately my fav season.ReplyDelete
What great choices. The red one at the top has to be my favourite, I bet you'll look gorgeous in it. Good luck with the eBay sales. xxxReplyDelete
My favourite is the red one too - just thinking that would do nicely for my work Xmas party!ReplyDelete
As you can see by my other choices, I'm draw to black and navy xReplyDelete
Ooh I love the top two! Good idea to sell a few bits to fund your new purchases. xReplyDelete
I think my favourite is the 2nd one with the lace sleeves.ReplyDelete
Love your biker boots - mine died last winter. Am now torn between buying another pair or getting some worker boots.
Loving those dresses and the red coat is absolutely gorgeous xReplyDelete
Hi Amy your mum passed me the verastile blogger award and guess who I'm passing it to??ReplyDelete
OOOh! You have similar taste to me!ReplyDelete
I know JUST what you mean about Vintage clothes though, they must have been so teeeny back in the good old days.
I too have the calf problem and have seen some grey biker boots in Evans that I'm thinking of getting, I havent had shoes from there before.
