Autumn Feeling

:: Cecille Flares :: Saturdays Child*
:: Suede and Crochet top :: Vintage
:: Bag :: Camden Market*
:: Sandals :: Topshop
:: Hat :: Catarzi via ASOS

It's official, Autumn is here, and so is dressing in shades that match the leaves, which is one of my favourite ways to dress. Plus layers are a bonus, I love a good layer. One item of clothing that will be seeing me through when it gets too cold for bare legs are these amazing flares from Saturdays Child, as not only are they a great Autumn 70s colour, but they are just so comfortable. In fact, the only problem I had when styling this outfit post was that I had SO MUCH that went with them it was such a hard decision to decide what to wear with them first!

Paisley Dream

:: 'Jane' Dress :: Lily and the Lamplight*
:: Cape :: Absenta Accessories*
:: Hat :: Catarzi via ASOS

Photography : Alice Wint

This are the first of a series of outfits in a fun blog shoot I did with Alice a couple of weeks ago, she's one of the two amazing photographers behind the last couple of Waiste Vintage shoots and an inspiring and talented girl.

This 70s inspired paisley dress with the most incredible bell sleeves is handmade by Lily and the Lamplight, I love the colours in the pattern, and it goes perfectly layered with this handmade cape by Absenta Accessories, the hours of work that must have gone into it, it's beautiful, these are some seriously talented girls. So proud to support woman owned businesses like myself! I cannot believe it's the 1st September already, is it too early to start pulling out my Autumn Winter wardrobe?

California Here We Come

:: T-shirt :: Wildfox via Spoiled Brat*
:: Sandals :: ASOS
:: Suede Skirt :: Waiste Vintage
:: Hat :: Catarzi via ASOS

Yep I've got the OC theme tune stuck in my head after writing this blog post title thanks to this super soft amazing Wildfox t-shirt from Spoiled Brat. Such a good series. It's getting to that funny old time in the UK when it's reaching the end of our 'summer' (I'm kinda still waiting for it to happen to be honest) and there's that feeling of the season changing in the air into Autumn, I felt it today, it was sunny and I wore this, but there was a chill. How much longer can I have bare legs for? When will I start needing to take a coat out? How many times can I wear these sandals? I always  wish I lived in a country where it was warm and sunny all year round, but I really do love Autumn. I am still clinging on to the hope of an indian summer here though, as I'm not ready to put my legs away just yet-you never know.

Valley of the Dolls

:: Nettle Lace Dress :: Valley of the Dolls via Joy*

I love little white dresses. They're my weakness, a quarter of my wardrobe is devoted to them. I've got one for every occasion. This one has so many great components: the sleeves, the high neck and the material, the softest cheesecloth cotton. Being vintage inspired and not vintage I haven't got the headache of cleaning and repairing it either-trust me, white and cream vintage pieces usually need a lot of work.

I've not heard of the brand Valley of the Dolls before I discovered them through Joy, but I'm glad I have now, this pretty 70s inspired label is full of folk prints, flares and maxi dresses, just my thing.

Velvet Cave x Waiste

 I'm wearing: 
Bells :: Velvet Cave :: *
Top :: Vintage ::

Imogen is wearing:
Bells :: Velvet Cave ::
Top :: Waiste Vintage ::

A few weeks ago I went to meet the beautiful Imogen, a fellow vintage shop owner who runs the incredible Velvet Cave Vintage over on Etsy. We had the idea to do a shoot together as she's just started her own blog, and so we had a fun afternoon shooting and playing dress up with vintage and Imogens range of handmade bells. I love how the olive ones (coincidentally) matched my vintage top perfectly, and I got to take them home too. I also loved her incredible dreamy living room where these were shot, this wall hanging is just amazing.

With blogging, I feel for me personally that I'm not your 'typical' blogger as I much prefer to do my own thing and be creative in my own way. I'm not really into trends and mainly wear vintage, half the time I don't have the time to blog but I make time as I do it because I love it, I like to wear what I like not what I 'should' and to be honest most of the time I feel awkward talking about 'my outfit' or whatever, so it's really lovely when you do meet like minded girls like myself through blogging/instagram, girls who aren't scared to go against the grain and stand out from the crowd, especially vintage loving ones. <3
