VINTAGE SUMMER

Vintage summer, by Daisy Jordan

I know most #fbloggers pretty much only post new and current pieces and I totally understand why, but there's also nothing more lovely than a cute vintage dress. I bought this one from eBay when I was 16 and I still wear it today! Granted, it did look slightly different when I bought it; I had it altered (read: shortened 😂) and a top button put in to flatter my shape...but it's been my wardrobe hero for years. 

I love how vintage fashion never goes out of style and how much better it is for our environment too. I haven't blogged much about sustainable fashion (yet), but working in an industry that produces SO much waste every single day has really enlightened me to the situation. So much cheap, fast fashion is made constantly, but when there's so much lovely floral vintage available for decent prices, why are we buying it?

For vintage, I'm obsessed with Beyond Retro. I used to live opposite their Shoreditch store and I could spend hundreds in there, I swear. Vintage haters should also know that they do sell their own line of accessories, but also amazing second hand branded pieces that you can still buy new today, like Converse and Vans. If you're after a bargain, it's the place to go.

Small Cloud Bag in Grain Leather - Light Lilac Grain

If you're apprehensive, you don't have to go all-out vintage. I'm wearing the cuuuutest bag from The Cambridge Satchel Co, who I adore. I mainly love the idea of how it came about: a mother and daughter with a modest budget and an amazing idea. Their bags provide that vintage feel with definite quality and style. I LOVE this embossed lilac bag with scalloped edges (although I'm not gonna lie to you, it's so mini and cute that it fits absolutely nothing in!). Plus, it's nice to know that when you buy one the money is going to a talented family, rather than a huge global corporation. Just me?!

Let me know if you know of any amazing vintage shops in London that I need to check out, or any particularly environmentally-friendly fashion brands I should discover. I'm always interested in good quality sustainable clothing, much more so than throwaway fashion. Once I've gathered enough info, I'll deffo blog about the best of the lot! Hopefully one day we'll be more aware of how to look after our Earth and I'll do what I can to help.
