I’m sporting a new hat, I picked this baby up in the Warehouse sale. Burgundy is my favorite colour and at a delightful £15 I couldn’t resist! For its first outing I opted for a little matching outfit – teaming it with my beloved vintage dress, which has the dark burgundy colour running throughout the print. My camel coat is my favorite and seemed natural to wear it, I guess the same could be said for my Tres Chic clutch bag and my loafers, they are all my favorites!
I felt rather 70’s in this ensemble and I was digging it. The 1970’s are back in fashion and this Spring Summer we will be seeing more of it all over the high streets and fashion magazines, I cant wait to rock it! Also I realise I haven’t mentioned that we’re off to New York City at the end of March – Dave and I are so excited! It’ll be our second visit to the city but first time together. Any New Yorkers please share must see places and vintage stores, or if you’ve been before share you’re tips! I can’t wait and I’m super excited to share our adventure with ya’ll but we still have two weeks till we go – which is torture waiting!!!
I’ve finally set up a Vintage Reflection Shop – for now I’m using the Depop platform to sell my vintage treasures and hopefully if it goes well perhaps I’ll open an Esty store?! Down load the app (its free) and search for Vintage_Reflection to find me, I’m happy to ship internationally (just message me and I will look how much it’ll cost to ship to your country) or if you’d like to purchase anything via my blog (payment to be made through paypal) just let me know and I can tell you how much the item is and sizes – most things are pretty cheap and under £20, more than happy to do deals if you’re buying more than one item…
Find me @Depop – Vintage_Reflection for lots more vintage goodies!
Here it is, my second youtube video! This weekend I meet up with Katrina & Ashley and headed to East london. To find out what we got up to, you’ll have to watch the video ;-)
Onto my outfit – I treated myself to this pleated midi skirt from Blitz Vintage. I was feeling a tad gothic and dug out this old camouflage print t-shirt, teaming them with my faux leather jacket, unfortunately I had to add tights as it was rather windy! I’m looking forward to no tights weather. At least it was warm-enough to ditch my winter coat – hurrah! I’m getting bored of wearing them and want to dust off all my other jackets!

One of my Birthday treats was this Vivienne Westwood bracelet – I’m also lucky to have the matching necklace, thank you very much Momma :-) – for it’s first outing I thought I’d keep the outfit simple and went with all black, in-bracing my inner goth. To add a little colour with my camel coat and a hint of print with my leopard silk scarf.
I’m still addicted to my new loafers, although they pinch a little. I forgive them due to their prettiness, don’t you just hate it when shoes pinch! I’m hoping with a couple more wears and the leather will be worn in and super soft.

To pay homage to the start of London Fashion week, I thought I’d share some of my most recent street style illustrations for you to feast upon. Some of these drawings I did for my Beyond Retro feature. I’m looking forward to illustrating some snaps from this seasons catwalk and street style looks!
All illustrations by myself.
To help celebrate my Birthday I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with my Father, it was great having him stay and getting to hang out with him. On Saturday we headed into central London for a spot of shopping and to visit a music shop (music shop to keep Father happy, shopping to keep me happy ;-) ). The main reason we were shopping was for my Birthday presents (my Birthday was last Wednesday and you’ll have seen my presents in this post), as I already knew what I wanted the shopping trip was pretty pain-free – nipping into only 3 stores and then heading to Byron burger for lunch. Yum! All in all a great day… For Coco fans you’ll love the picture below, he’s wearing a coat! Too cute!
