With many of us on lock-down, shielding or self isolating, the one common ground we currently share is much more time at home. The clocks have gone forward and that familiar feeling of spring is in the air. Whilst staying at home as much as possible is absolutely the right thing to do, that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy a little shopping for the brighter (and hopefully warmer) season ahead.
Here at My Vintage, we have of course closed our beautiful Darwen shop for the time being but we are still operating as normal online. This means you can still shop from our huge range of vintage clothing, retro clothing, vintage accessories and vintage homeware from the comfort of your sofa; and have your choice of items delivered to your door. We use Royal Mail for our deliveries, and our fantastic nationwide postal workers are still delivering as normal as well as following government guidelines for safety during this coronavirus crisis.
So as the month of March draws to a close, I have selected some of my favourite items of the month right here for you, bringing you the very best vintage and retro available online. Let's get started!
This 1960s vintage dress is simply stunning! We love the colour blocking and the cute floral appliqué, finished off with a matching belt. It's a great dress for the daytime or evening, just add a blazer for a more formal look. It's a real vintage gem.
Sticking with the red colour palette, I have absolutely fallen in love with this original 1970s vintage coat from Eastex. It's such a well made piece in quite a heavyweight fabric and adds that touch of chic to any outfit. It's a total treasure and I don't think it will be around for long.
You may have seen this absolute beauty on our social media this week (if you didn't then check out all our social links towards the end of this blog post). I adore the polka dots and cute bow detail. It can be worn on a variety of sizes; buttoned up as a jumper or opened up as a cosy cardi. Such a gorgeous vintage knit.
As polka dots are still a massive trend for 2020, I have picked out another spotty favourite of mine to add to the March mix. This plus size vintage dress is super 80s and super stylish, just add nude heels for gorgeous occasion-wear.
Moving on to some pretty vintage accessories, I love this delicate original 50s pink rose earrings. They add that perfect final touch to your outfit and also make a beautiful but affordable gift for someone special.
This is another fabulous vintage accessory that had to make it onto this month's list. It's super cool and quirky but still very practical and versatile, what's not to love?! Also a great gift for someone special if you feel like cheering somebody up during this challenging time.
Finally, I have picked out these ADORABLE retro shoes. Chunky Mary Jane style in gorgeous glossy patent; these shoes will look amazing with black or coloured tights and a cute vintage dress. They are super comfy too! Definitely my favourite shoes of the month!
I hope you love the March favourites as much as I do... why not let me know your thoughts in the comments below or on any of our social media channels.
