Striped Again

*Blowing the dust off the blog*

I’ve missed you guys. How have you been?

I’m back after an invigorating mini shopping spree in Marks & Spencer. I was shattered after work last week but was suddenly revitalised after seeing that the Marks and Spencer sale had started. M&S like many retailers is struggling on the high street and in addition to that they get a fair amount of stick about their ranges not being that great. I disagree. I actually like old Sparkys especially the Autograph range. Many of my summer tshirts over the past few years have come from there too. The only range I really don’t have much love for is Per Una though I can see the appeal for other people. Marks and Spencer will always have a special place in my heart. So will stripes. Stripes might have a slightly loftier position within my soul as I have rarely met a stripe I didn’t like. Breton stripes, candy stripes, chevron stripes- they all turn my head, even more so than polkadots but not as much as jumpsuits. Jumpsuits are my first fashion love but don’t even get me started again.

There are a plethora of stylish bloggers online that wear vintage clothing but my top ranking vintage lover is Wendy D.J from Just Jewels 4U. One of the reasons that I like checking out her posts is that like me- she loves 80’s fashion. Wendy has an extensive wardrobe of 80’s dresses so I sent her another one to add to her collection and here she is looking superb. This was one of my star dresses from my stock and I’m so glad to see that its gone to a good home. Wendy- you look great!

Today’s outfit, courtesy of my mentalist camera. I think the blurred pic adds to the vintage quality of the whole look as this is one of my favourite and most underworn 1980’s vintage pieces in my wardrobe.
