My Retro

I love how vintage and retro is making a come back! With shows like Dawn O'Porter's this old thing showing you all how to shop vintage and how to mix old with the new there are no excuses! If you are a tad nervous to go full on vintage have no fear. Below I am going to share with you some of my affordable vintage inspired favorites from the high street.

Topshop Paisley dress: £46
The 1960's was all about bold prints and vibrant colors. The skirts were getting much shorter and it was the era for experimenting! This cute paisley dress by topshop is a perfect nod to the 60's with wearable colors and patterns.
New Look Houndstooth Bag: £12.99
Houndstooth was first introduced in 1933 appearing in men's spring suit collections. It can now be seen everywhere on the high street!  This gorgeous little bag has a really classic retro feel to it with its monochrome print and gold clasp detail.

Peacocks Mint Green Bird Tea Dress: £16.00
This adorable tea dress by peacocks boasts a classic retro cut. Not only is this dress cute but it is super flattering with it's pulled in waist tie. The skirt skims the hips creating the much sought after hourglass figure.

I hope you have fun hunting down vintage inspired goodies on the high street! You may even love it so much you're inspired to go for the real vintage deal! If so, you can visit Number 26 in Hanley Stoke on Trent which boasts a floor of vintage goodness as well as an adorable gift shop 26a.
