Bushwick Vintage Part 1

Darlings,

If you read my articles on Bushwick Daily you'll know that Bushwick, Brooklyn is home to a fantastic array of vintage shops for the discerning (and broke) fashionista! Last week I discovered a new boutique called Chess and the Sphinx. I spent a small fortune in there, sure, but check out this amazing haul! Also, an oldie but goodie is the chain L Train Vintage which just opened up a new location a block from my apartment eek! I picked up the blue floral dress at the end of the post for $5, yes $5 - too good to pass up! Here it all is..... 

1. This gorgeous little dress is originally from Brooks Brothers!

This delightful handmade navy blue suit was on the mannequin in the window. It was what drew me into the store in the first place. When I tried it on, it fit perfectly - like it was made for me!  I loved it so much I had to immediately take photos in it despite the pouring rain! (I am a Brit after all, a little rain won't kill me).

The Kate Spade was a present. Fancy eh? 

Now what about this coat (for $85) beautiful red wool, just heaven and so bloody warm!

Finally the $5 dress paired with an H&M coat and some Dr Martens. Classic Brit chic.

More Bushwick vintage coming soon! Watch this space kiddos!

Last of the Summer Outfits

Hello Fashionistas,

Happy Tuesday to you all. It seems like summer is finally cooling off here in NYC and I'm already eyeing up all of the Autumn-wear in the stores that I can't afford. #artistproblems #sendfreestuff

So, to honour the last days of summer, here is an adorable Topshop onesie dressed up #threewaystowear

Love to you all Darlings!

#1 Wear over a stripey t-shirt, with red shoes and a bow in your hair. (A little matchy-matchy sure, but who cares I look like an adorable cupcake.)

#2 Dress the look up with a red jacket and tie a vintage scarf around your hair into a turban - instant glamour!

#3 Add a vintage cropped jacket and vintage lace gloves (these were my great grandmother's!!) for a romantic vibe.

For those of you who know me, you know I LOVE to eat. With that in mind here is the final shot:

Mmmmmm Bagels.......

Red Alert

Hello Fashionistas,

Happy Tuesday from sunny (and I use that word ironically) London. Today on the blog I am wearing a fantastic asymmetric skirt bought in the Marks and Spencer's sale (who knew they were so cool!?)

The photos are again by the delightful

Juliette

.

Here it is #threewaystowear

#1 Wear with a shirt and jumper in neutral colours to really let the skirt shine. Add flatforms to keep it edgy.

#2 For a more romantic vibe wear with a sweet floral top and vintage heels. Perfect for a late summer brunch. Also please enjoy the incredible creepy door knocker....

#3 Go big or go home. Crop top, platform boots, massive church. DONE

Until next time fashion divas!

Men's Fashion Week

Hello Darlings,

Whilst I'm sunning myself and belting out showtunes in Florida, New York has been hosting Men's Fashion Week. Although I could not be there, my Man-Friday

Have a gander at some of the fashionistas below.
