If you're ever down the South Coast way and stumble into my Hometown of Hastings, you just have to check out Little Treasures. On my last trip home I was excited to discover that they had added homeware to the already fabulous vintage fashions.
The thing that entices you into this store is firstly the array of vintage dresses, clothing and accessories hanging outside the shop. Once inside, the space demands to be explored and when you get upstairs the homeware is set out in beautiful room set-ups. My idea of shopping heaven.
They have a fab website too - check it out.
My new favourite shop in London is Marshmallow Mountain Just off Carnaby Street because I stumbled upon two fab fifties style dresses for just £15 each the other day. One of the store's strengths is the sheer quantity of shoes they stock - much more than most other vintage stores. They also have lovely little jewellery bits and sunglasses too, perfect for someone with a smaller budget because a lot of the stock is quite highly priced.
Don't miss the chests outside the front door for a bargain, that's where I found these two gems.I've been wearing the green one with a tan belt, sandals and satchel and the blue checked one with a fitted black jacket, black belt and my blue Sarenza heels.
With the ladylike look and Mad Men styling a hot topic I think I've found my new signature style. If I manage to lose a few lbs some time soon, I'll also be stocking up on some figure-hugging, knee-length shifts too, that's the other style I favour when it comes to vintage shopping. After Vintage at Goodwood and seeing how amazing everyone looked, I'm far more motivated to trawl the vintage stores for something a bit different to mix with the rest of my high-street stuff.
