Well I must begin by apologising for the absence of June favourites. Between heatwaves, thunderstorms and the shop re-opening it was a strange and busy month that just flew away with me! But that does mean that my vintage favourites for July are even better! We have added some absolutely amazing items to the website recently and have more gems to photograph and list all the time, so remember to keep checking our socials for more arrivals as the month goes on.
For now I have a veritable banquet of original vintage fashion and accessories for you to feast your eyes on, so let's get started with our first category...
I simply had to start with these INCREDIBLE original seventies platforms. I think these could well be the best vintage shoes we have ever had, I absolutely adore them! Perfect to wear with an original vintage dress, vintage flares or to inject retro flavour to a modern outfit. Click the image for more information.
Sticking with the seventies, these black platform sandals are also completely fabulous and oh so versatile. Why settle for a modern reproduction when you can own an original pair? If you are a UK size 5 I am very jealous! Just click the image to see more.
These designer vintage beauties would have Dorothy Gale herself palpitating! Ruby red slippers from the iconic Charles Jourdan with huge front bows... what's not to love? If you would like more information simply tap the image.
I am nothing short of obsessed with these mid century box bags! They just epitomise the plastic loving designs of the sixties and are the best kind of quirky. It's also super cool that we have one in red and another in yellow - perfect pops of colour! Just tap on either image for more information.
Not technically a handbag, but perfect for storing makeup or for overnight stays; a vintage vanity case is always a brilliant gift or investment. This is a glorious floral print in striking blue and it is truly gorgeous as well as super practical. Just tap the pic for more info.
This is such a cute day dress, perfect worn alone when the weather is fine, or layered with a turtleneck or cardigan when it's cooler. Easy to style and easy to wear, it's a great print and shape. For more info just tap the image.
This 1960s original beauty is just that - absolutely beautiful! The classic shift shape and the gorgeous summer coral colour are perfection, this is a must have for all you mod girls. Just click the pic for more information.
This is perfect for any home or office, with all the appeal of an original vintage rotary dial phone but with the modern convenience of push buttons. The vibrant red will compliment most retro or contemporary interiors too. To find out more simply tap the image.
Another glorious interior piece is this WORK set of wooden letters. Perfectly distressed and ideal for a home office or converted garage. They can free stand or hang on the wall - I can see these being snapped up pretty quickly. For more info just click on the image.
And finally we have this awesome decanter and shot glass set in multi coloured dogtooth patterns. THis will look fantastic in a vintage cocktail cabinet or on a homemade retro bar or display shelf. It would also make a fantastic gift for any vintage lover. Just click the pic to find out more.
That rounds up my July vintage favourites - just a handful of the amazing items added to the website so far this month. We continue to add items across many categories every few days so be sure to keep checking back so you don't miss out on a gem!
