You can always rely on a pair of pretty red shoes to lift the spirits on a Wednesday morning – and aren’t these just peachy? These Chia Mihara Osmo sandals (yes, really!) cost £225 and I found them on a rather nifty little online vintage-inspired boutique called Ruby Plum. Choc full with gorgeous dresses, knits and bags, the only problem is deciding what to keep in my basket!
I have had my eye on this Marianne bag (£130) for some time and may have to start dropping some p-r-e-t-t-y heavy hints soon to the other half. Surely I deserve it?!?!!
I have been busy seeking out some sumptuous treats for your delectation this Spring and have found some truly exquisite pieces for the taking (and some that will be appearing soon on a wall / cupboard / sideboard in my home!)
First off, let’s say we need some new threads. The winter cardies and trousers, tights and scarves were great for the nippy weather, but not now the sun is shining, the birds are singing – that means a whole new wardrobe!
Over on Plumo there are some really stunning dresses, below are a few that have tickled my fancy.
I love this yellow vintage tea dress, it’s all cornfields and sunshine and costs £159 from Plumo (it is made of lovely silk georgette, mind.) Or this pretty folk dress below for £139.
I’m really liking this folksy vibe that is hot at the moment, it’s the ultimate femine look and makes me feel like sipping home-made lemonade in the garden. For a cute accessory, I rather fancy this Bali bag – what a fab shade of green! It too is not the cheapest in the world but I would fork out the £59 for it in a heartbeat!
Finally, from Plumo, I adore this little leather purse (£25) I think I had something similar which I purchased from the caravan site shop on holiday in Wales many moons ago. Ah the nostalgia!
Over at Toast, I am really loving the uber blue shoes they have such as this soft nappa sandal and this strappy azure blue beaded thong sandal – both £89. Like wearing the sky on your feet!
So to the home front. Old reliable Graham and Green have got a great 20% off voucher code running at the moment and I’m tempted to splurge on a few things I have had my eye on for some time such as this lovely branch vase below which cost between £37 and £42.
Or these beautiful angel wing mirrors as seen in Living Etc – they are really unique and totally worth the £189 G & G are asking.
Go forth and shop!
Mod Cloth has a good range of vintage inspired and genuine pieces. I have selected this lovely frilly dress and shoes as the two that jump out at me…
Pinks Daily Planner is another cool vintage find. Again, not all authentic pieces but a good range of original one-offs and rather beautifully designed garments. Here are a couple i rather fancy (though a little on the pricey side!)
This looks like it’s straight off Tretchikoff’s Green Lady! Fab!
Navy and polka dots? Brilliant – and a snip – $23
Try 1918 Vintage for 70s and 80s gear like this cute Dolly ruffle shirt and seahorse pendant that doubles up as a comb – nifty!
If you haven’t come across I heart Cheeky Chops and you are a die-hard (ahem) 80s lover, then you really should check it out. It’s got hand picked vintage attire and is super cheap. Perhaps not really to my taste as I was a child of the 80s and would rather forget that era, personally, but if you are in to it, get over there and knock yourself out!
(I do, however, love this silver belt and it’s only a tenner!)
For beautiful vintage jewellery – check out This Charming Girl. Really good price and totally original designs – get there quick because it is becoming well known (boo to the masses!)
Super cute jewels can be found at Poison Apple NY including this “I love horses” pendant.
And over on Etsy, Vintage Bureau has these lovely red pearl set for sale – they will set off any outfit a treat.
While Immaculate Heart Vintage has some shoes to die for! And a good price at $20 and $22 respectively.
That concludes my vintage online shopping extravaganza (for now)
Have a good weekend, y’all x
