It’s that time of year again, when we wrack our brains for ideas of what gifts we would like to find nestled under the Christmas tree…
So I’m going to be awfully helpful to you ladies, and infuse your day with some divine inspiration in the form of these elegant, beautifully designed, British made items of lingerie. I guarantee, they will not only make you feel like a bonefide Hollywood screen siren, but if you have one, they will most likely go down pretty well with your other halves. Drop those hints, ladies!
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?!?!!
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
