Vintage - The preppy dress


As i'm going to discuss in my next blog post, I have recently been trying out ethical and sustainable shopping. This mainly means switching from big high street brands to vintage, recycled and small local businesses. So when my auntie suggested she show me some of the vintage shops in Islington, London, I pretty much jumped at the chance. Initially, I didn't expect much as I've found that most vintage clothing comes in slightly larger sizes, making it hard for me to find good-fitting clothing. However, after checking out some of the vintage shops on the main street and on Camden Passage I found that some of the shops actually had some beautiful, petite fitting pieces. My favourite by far was a cute little shop called 'Fat Faced Cat,' located on Camden Passage. I thought their collection of clothing was just perfect, not to mention the lovely staff and warm atmosphere. As soon as I walked in, I noticed a simple pink checked dress and fell in love. The material is amazing quality and the colours really stood out to me. I'll definitely be back very soon! 






Coat - Stradivarius




Boots - Bershka

  1. Love this dress, you look beautiful and it's such a nice idea (and means it's a lot less likely anyone will have the same dress on as you at a party!)
