My vintage buy of the week

Welcome to a new semi regular blog! As you may know I run a business on Etsy selling vintage items and often end up keeping things I fall in love with.

In these blogs I will share what I’ve bought and why (hopefully) it was a good buy! 

Todays item is a dress I just fell in love with the minute I saw it. Made in the Netherlands in the late 1970’s/early 80s it is by the brand Suku San and is in a bold colbalt blue polyester crepe.  At the same time I also picked up an unusual twisted vintage belt so the outfit is full on vintage which is unusual for me.

What I loved the most though was the draped front and split sleeves. Its so stylish and feels great on, plus the whole outfit cost me less than £5!  Comfort and style…hoorah!

Tell me about it, stud…

I do love a bit of detail in an outfit – a flash of metallic, a statement necklace or a great bit of embellishment.  In the words of a vamped up Sandy in Grease…”tell me about it, stud…” and studs are what we have today!!!

I also wore the bright purplely/plum lipstick I recently bought (and loved) from Poundlands new make-up Gallery range (blogged here).  You’ve got to love a bit of make-up co-ordination!
