Cheesecake Vintage is a must for anyone who loves their skirts flirty and fifties with a side order of chic. It’s an Etsy store and more, and one I just had to flag up. Take this blue milinary netting, so pretty – only $12 and you can add it to your favourite hat.
This 1960s black, mod, mini-dress is so cute and would be a great option for the modern LBD. And you can’t argue with the price-tag -$54!
Here’s one more I picked out, a 1950s sun dress – it really embodies the era for me. Some vintage is a bit hit n miss and you would look out of place wearing it today, but this is so fresh and cute, I could see lots of office workers sitting about in the summer sun having lunch wearing this type of dress wih some ballerina pumps. Peachy! Again only $38 – bargain!
Wonderful Bristol fashion boutique, Shop Dutty, is featuring in a forthcoming issue of Suit Yourself Magazine and myself, ace photographer Elena Goodrum and the gorgeous Leah and Rhea as our models braved the November frost to show off the fabulous creations of Joh and Louisa, otherwise known as Dutty Girl and Buchi and Gosmos. The mag will be out in January but here is a sneaky peak at the results of our shoot.
Now I have to say it, but neither girls are models but wow, they were so professional and we could practically use any of the images.

Rhea models black and gold babydoll dress and clutch.
It’s not just clothes, Shop Dutty stocks some rather eye-catching statement jewellery…
Rhea models one of the shop’s famous tees coupled with a quirky purple tartan skirt.
Stopping traffic: We asked the girls to pose as mannequins – and turned a few heads in the process…
For more info and to see the full range, visit the shop at Stokes Croft in Bristol, right next door to The Pipe and Slippers pub.
