Mint Vintage

Posted in Stores

This has become one of my favourite little vintage shops in London.  The staff do a great job of editing the selection of men’s and women’s clothing to pay homage to the trends of the current season (without the high street price tag). It is a perfect place to start if you are looking for something specific be it plaid trousers, leather shorts or a new silk scarf. It is located in a fabulous area, The Seven Dials,  so be sure to take an afternoon to wander the other great vintage and independent boutiques that are intermixed with high street chains such as Reiss, H&M, COS, etc. If you can not make a visit in person as luck would have it you can peruse their selection on the ASOS marketplace. Happy shopping! Cheers!

Black & Blue

Posted in There's {a} Way

Hey y’all!  You know what I love? Alliteration. I just realised that all of my post title’s this week are quite quaint.  What I love even more though is finding an item of clothing that helps you get out of a wardrobe rut.  It has been so hard for me this year to make the mental leap to Fall when it comes to my wardrobe.  It was the perfect combination of late warm summer weather, which has continued on through this month of September, and a recent trip to the beach that have just made it hard to change gears. Then Zara happened. I came upon this jacket and walked by it in the store, noticed it, and moved on. Then when I got home I started thinking about it. I had to go online and take a second look and then I had to go back to the store later in the week to try it on. Gold hardware, asymmetry, perfect fit, a soft leather collar…. It is the perfect piece that made my mind slide to cooler climates and for this first time got me maybe the smallest bit excited for the change of seasons. What item of clothing has got you excited for Fall? Cheers!
