'No Place Like Home' Waiste Vintage AW Lookbook

Photography: Alice Wint
Models: Alice Short and Laurel Arnell-Cullen
Styling: Me!

All vintage can be found on

Ahh I know I say this all the time but I think this is definitely my favourite ever vintage lookbook so far. So so happy right now! And after seeing these beautiful babes wearing all the vintage I found for the shoot I wanted to keep it all, that's definitely the hardest part of running my business! It was the loveliest shoot too just amazing to create something dreamy with three amazing girls.

Alice totally got the vibe I was going for as usual and I absolutely loved how the photos turned out. So, so overwhelmed by the response to the collection, a massive thank you to everyone for their love and support of my vintage shop, I can't thank you enough. There's only a few pieces left to grab already, I can't believe it, you can shop the lookbook here. Do you lovely blog readers like it? I'd love to know your thoughts.

☾ Hello October ☽

:: Hat :: Brixton* ::
:: Maxi Dress :: Waiste Vintage ::

:: Photography :: Jasmine Farram ::

Hello October. You're finally here. My favourite month of the year, it always reminds me of change and new beginnings and I have some of my happiest memories of this month. It's just so beautiful with all the leaves slowly changing colour and falling, feeling the slight chill in the air whilst the sky being such a brilliant blue, exactly like it was today. I'm obsessed with this dress I found vintage hunting last year, it's not really your everyday dress but I feel like it was made for fields like these on Hampstead heath. Although I'm really excited to start layering up now, oh and finding that perfect winter coat of course.

In other news there's a brand new AW Waiste Vintage lookbook launching on this Saturday which I'm so excited about, I know I say this every time haha, but this is definitely my favourite one yet.

A Day in Camden Market

:: Video still wearing a vintage dress ::

Video shot by Treve Jackson-Hicks
A slightly different post today as you can see from the video above. Apologises about my annoying voice (insert monkey with hands over his eyes emoji here). Last month I had the pleasure of being asked to head over to Camden Market to wander around and pick out a few of my favourite things from the hundreds of shops and stalls there, being filmed along the way. If you haven't been it's basically like a little aladdins cave, you can definitely get lost in there which is all part of the fun.
Now if you're not familiar with Camden Market, for me it used to be the place to go for hidden gems, bohemian pieces, antiques and vintage, it's been around since the 70s and is now going through a massive overhaul and going back to it's bohemian roots. If you're a tourist to London I'd highly recommend getting lost there for a day. It's steeped in history and now with the launch of the new Camden Market website you can find the best of the market online too.
:: What I chose :: 

:: Cactus leather custom one-off leather bag :: similar here ::

Cactus leather is an incredible leather bag and accessories shop in the heart of the stables in Camden where they hand-make all their leather products, combining the influence of British culture with Moroccan leather tradition. They can custom make you anything too, which is pretty amazing.

:: Paisley Throw and Embroidered Pom Pom Bag :: Both Araucaria ::

I found these great pieces in a shop called Araucaria, which is full of indian inspired homeware pieces, and they sell a bit of clothing too. A real life treasure trove. I'm going to use the pom pom bag as a makeup bag.
:: Brass Snake Ring :: Tribu ::

Tribu is a handmade jewellery shop inspired by tribal cultures, artists and music, they hand make a lot of the jewellery actually in the back of the shop and can resize or adjust anything to make sure it fits you perfectly. I've been after a snake ring for ages so I'm really pleased with this one.

Have you been to Camden market? What's your favourite shop?

Black and Gold

 :: Dress :: Forever 21 (Old) ::
:: Shoes :: Public Desire* ::
:: Velvet Embroidered Jacket :: H&M via Ebay ::
:: Bag :: Camden Market* ::
:: Hair Pin :: Bly Design* ::
:: Crystal Ring :: Tentative Decisions* ::

Soooo what happens when you shoot loads of outfit posts in one week and then feel really smug that you feel slightly organised for the first time in your life? You completely forget to blog half of them of course. In my defence I did want to wait to post this one until it got a little colder and darker as I feel this outfit has a little wintery feeling about it, almost Christmassy with the black and gold theme haha. Can't stop banging on about Christmas I've mentioned in twice now on here! These Public Desire lace up boots are a great little in-between shoe as it doesn't feel anywhere near Autumn/winter yet (thank goodness) they go great with jeans too.

As does this beautiful jacket I won for a fiver on eBay a couple of months back. I was so happy as I've wanted it for absolutely ages, and was always kicking myself from not buying it from H&M when it first came out. It will however actually be absolutely useless in winter, it's both cropped and three quarter sleeves, I was having enough trouble trying to keep my dress sleeves tucked in for this, as you can see, I just gave up in the end. So pretty to look at though.

✿ Autumn Patchwork ✿

:: 70s Dress :: Vintage
:: Hat :: Brixton*
:: Boots :: Bertie ::

:: Photography :: Jasmine Farram

These are the first in a series of blog posts I did with the talented Jasmine Farram, another girl I met through the powers of instagram (where else?) and did a mini shoot in-between showers. I kind of realised when meeting up with her how weird it actually is to be taking pictures of a strange girl for her blog haha and got a little embarrassed but I love how these turned out and definitely want to shoot more now, this girl is amazing behind the lens.

 This beautifully made Brixton hat is literally the colour of Autumn and something that pretty much goes with everything in my wardrobe at the moment. I'm not sure how I did without it last Autumn. I've suddenly become obsessed with patchwork anything at the moment and couldn't believe my luck when I found this perfect 70s midi dress a couple of months ago, but I kind of felt that it's more of an Autumny dress with the colours so I've been resisting wearing it until I felt it was the right time. I even was going to cut it short at one point (it was a fleeting thought when it suddenly went hot one day) but I'm so glad I didn't now.
