REVOGUE'S Online Vintage Store Favourites Summer 2014
 
The sun is shining, summer has stricken with full force, and I have been looking through my favourite online vintage sites for cute summer outfit inspiration. Online vintage shopping can be a fantastic way to find those wonderful retro pieces when you’re not in the mood rummage in the shops. SO let me introduce you to my favourite online sites, and the pieces I found – each one under £50!
 
Peekaboo findsPeekaboo Vintage Clothing is pretty well renowned with retro clothing lovers, who have enjoyed shopping their pieces for two decades. The company started on Portabello Market and now is stocked in TOPSHOP and on ASOS. I love their own website; easy browsing, all items are styled on models and there’s a great selection of genuine vintage items. I found this Atzec Jacket, a wonderful colourful dress and these cute flower earrings. If they don’t get snapped up quickly I will be seriously surprised!! 
 
beyond retro finds2
 
 
Beyond Retro has become legendary in the world of vintage shopping. This retro retailer started in the East of London and has grown rapidly from Brick Lane to Stockholm to the world wide web. Their stores are a treat to spend time in and their website reflects its eclectic mix. Do you like this fringed leather skirt, the cute denim shorts, the pretty maxi skirt and the sunglasses? All from the Beyond Retro website!

yellow trousers
Rokit have been rocking the retro world for over three decades. Starting at Camden Market, focusing on American Cowboy denim they now have two stores, alot of fantastic vintage clobber and customise pieces wonderfully. Again, a fantastic wesbite and I discovered they do kiddies vintage – now I can get vintage pieces for my nieces and nephews! I love a high waisted trouser – what do you think of these yellow ones?

 I have featured Garite before and I still can’t get enough of this wonderful company! There is  a certain amount of romanticism with the way they source their pieces from France! You can catch their collection in Camden at C/159 but if you want to shop vintage from your sofa their website is a great place to surf! I found the lovely flowerly crop top which I would love to put with the high waisted trousers!
 
onlinevintage
 
Love Miss Daisy is a fabulous online vintage clothing store. Providing shoppers with a more classic vintage style, they have everything from bridalwear to shoes to homeware! I have just discovered the online treat and thought the hat was great! A real 1960’s find, I just wish that I had a wedding or was going to the races so that I could wear it!
 
For me, one of the most exciting parts of vintage shopping is finding really unusual pieces and I found that the It’s Vintage Darling website is certainly stocked with enough! With the intention of providing their customers with the hassle free experience that we all love from online shopping whilst not compromising on style and stock, their website is pleasure to shop. I found this brilliant white travel carry case; the perfect place to put all my vintage finds.
 
Please let me know what your favourite online vintage stores are!

Next Summer New-In Collection Event

Next New In  Summer Collection Event

 

NEXT have got it going on this season and you better make sure you don’t miss out!

Next Summer Collection

Next Summer Collection 2014

I had the great fortune to be invited to the super swanky Soho Hotel to preview NEXT’s new collection at their NEW-IN event The suite looked beautiful; pastel, tribal and floral prints popping out against the London night skyline. It was easy to feel how this collection could fit and work into my own wardrobe. With a leopard here and a swirly candy candy cane there, the atmosphere of the event fully reflected the fun and fresh appeal of the pieces.

The other ladies were getting their glamour on by getting their hair styled in lovely waterfall braids whilst I had my nails painted to match one of the new prints featured in the NEW-IN collection. The amazing nail artists managed to paint such details flowers on my nails and I have had so many compliments on them throughout this week!

Whichever trend has caught your eye this summer, NEXT’s new collection has got everything to satisfy your wandering shopping eye. Featuring fresh prints, pretty pastels, trendy espadrilles, sexy sandals and touch of jungle fever, NEXT has delightfully created a collection that features all of this summer’s key trends. But more importantly, they haven’t failed to ensure that their pieces are accessible, wearable and can slip stylishly into any lady’s wardrobe.

The swimwear captured the global and tribal prints that featured in Valentino and Pucci’s key looks this season.

As the Oscar de la Renta collection accented floral patters, the new NEXT collection sees beautiful floral bursts too, with dresses, jumpsuits and a wonderful pair of pointed stilettos.

Pastels pieces with pleats and in wonderful textures are a crucial part of this collection, rounding up the looks seen on the Burberry Prorsum catwalk.

For me the most clever way that NEXT have brought the catwalk to the highstreet is with their demin look floral print – this is print that I decided to go with on my nails (in the picture above!) It works wonderfully as the print for one of their key summer dresses, and brings the look of DKNY and MaxMara to a widespread audience.

Their shoe collection really impressed me; the espadrilles are a sure way to do casual but chic this summer, the pointed stiletos will take a day outfit right on into the night and a very special pair of white strappy sandals caught MY eye…. definitely on my WISH LIST (and the matching white handbag wouldn’t go a miss too!)
