Wow! My last post had LOADS of views from Gem's blog, so thanks again so much to her for agreeing to take part in my wee Q&A sesh, and for pimping out FFS :)
Oh and you may notice I have a spiffing new header. I'm afraid I can take NO credit for it's awesomeness - it was 100% the work of the lovely Charlene from Dainty Dresses - go check her out. Thanks again dawl!
OK. So whilst I fear the load of new followers I've amassed recently (*waves* hi btw!) might run screaming and crying to click unfollow as fast as their little paws will allow, let me show you some vintage picks I've been loving on Etsy over the last few days... Brace yourself.
Firstly, this little coral dress...
RIGHT,I know what you're thinking, but I'm going to Venice in four weeks and I'm REALLY lacking in pretty floaty dresses! Imagine this cut off to the knee, with the Mulberry Alexa and some chunky wooden sandals and gold jewellery. And a tan, obviously. Pretty, right? RIGHT? Hmm... I see you remain unconvinced.
How about this wee ditty:
I'm picturing this with a massive wide-brimmed black hat and oversized cat-eye sunnies, flat sandals and a load of chunky silver rings. Yes? Yes.
This wee handmade bow ring kind of speaks for itself. Who doesn't love a pretty little silver ring, aye?
I thought this was leopard-print at first but actually it's tiny yellow flowers on a black background. 90s tiny floral-print-tastic! Not particularly suitable for holibags, but you can never have too many vintage shirts. Fact.
In contrast, this slinky cardigan IS leopard print - tiny little leopard print at that. Just divine with something really plain underneath, and a chunky gold watch. As it's slightly colder in the evenings here (Glesga) I find my fingers drifting more and more to the cardigans/knitwear sections of my favourite websites. Looking very much forward to autumn...
Bold colour block bikini. So although Venice is a city, and technically my week away there could be classed as a city break, I also can't stop coveting pictures of cool swimwear. Languishing on a scorching beach in this bikini, wearing Alexander Wang's angular sunglasses... YES please!
So. To new followers, this is the kinda borderline-tacky, 90s grungy, ugly/beautiful vintage shiz I am into. Feel free to unfollow if I've offended your eyes, but let me try and tempt you to stay with a plethora of lolz courtesy of the most ridiculous Etsy offering I've ever seen. EVER...
Because, hell, I don't know about you but I've been SORELY missing a blue, furry, Grover-faced high-waisted skirt in my life. WORD.
