Autumn is around the corner! Have you taken advantage of the SUMMER SALE that is going on around the net?
The other day I snapped a lovely cardigan from BANNED Clothing for under 30€, which is very cheap compared to the price they have in shops in my city. That’s why I always try to buy online, there are lots of discounts and deals!
I have searched a bit on the net and came across beautiful garments which now are at reduced prices. I wish I could grab them all, but I need to save money for my future plans. Moreover, all the items I like are out of stock in my size 😦
These two Hell Bunny cardigans placed above are to die for! I am absolutely in love with the birdcage cardigan in pink, but unfortunately my size is out of stock. They are £22 each at Audrey Stars Boutique, so make sure to visit their shop!
One of my all time favourite clothing lines, Collectif, is also having a sale on their website. They have tons of dresses, tops and cardigans at reduced prices, like these two beauties. Lindy Bop is also having a huge sale, with many types of dresses and skirts to choose from. Dresses at £22.99…What else can we say?
|Collectif Reno Summer Western shirt (21.90€)|
|Collectif Jo Cardigan (24.50€)|
|Lindy Bop Eloise Red Tartan Pencil Dress (£22.99)|
|Lindy Bop Concetta Wiggle Dress (£26.99)|
Established in London, UK, it is one of my favourite vintage-inspired brands. All their garments and accessories take influence from the 1940s and the 1950s at reasonable prices (compared to other brands it’s affordable). The sizing runs large, so make sure to pick a size down when you buy something from them. Although they use many colours for their clothing, the palette mainly consists on green, red and black.
One of the most popular US based sites to buy vintage repro and cute stuff. They constantly offer discounts and sale items for short periods of time. The best way to shop in time is to subscribe to their weekly newsletter, which shows you the most amazing items according to your likes and views on the page. The price range is wide, depending on the label of the item and if it is imported or not. Clothing and other stuff from their house brands is cheaper than, let’s just say, Hell Bunny or Collectif, which can be bought there too. Probably the biggest online shop to buy cute dresses with lovely and juicy designs. Also, If you download their Iphone App you get 20$ off your first order!
When I first got into vintage and retro designs, I had a huge obsession on Kling, a Spanish clothing line that creates stuff for young women who want to look like a Sophia Coppola character. All their designs are inspired by Coppola’s own world, as well as by Wes Anderson‘s. Big coats, pastel colours, cute logos and girly shirts. All their items are 50% off now, and shipping to Europe is FREE.
The place to buy all you dream of. You can find anything retro, handmade and cute. Etsy is social a platform to connect sellers with buyers. The site is specialised in second hand, handmade stuff and jewellery. Sellers and buyers from all over the world interact everyday, with safe payment and quality goods. There are lots of vintage clothing sellers willing to find a home to their garments. & they often offer discounts, so make sure to have a look and…start shopping!
If you want to look like a Classic Hollywood starlet, make sure to buy from Pinup Girl Clothing, based in California. They offer all types of garments in different patterns and styles to encourage and empower women. They want to make women proud of themselves no matter the size and the colour of their skin. Clothing made for all types of women. The brand is very active on social networks, and they constantly organize meetups, giveaways and promotional codes.
Last week I graduated from University! I never thought the day would come that fast. Four years go by so quick!
The whole promotion attended the event, which was held in Barcelona’s Liceu, a magnificent venue that accurately reflects the city’s history throughout the years.
So what did I wear to such an important event?
Dress: Hell Bunny
Shoes: from a local shop
Hair by me
I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on an event. I like to keep it simple but significant. I am one of those who consider essential to look good in whatever you wear; it doesn’t matter if it is second hand, modern or cheap. Just be yourself.
It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces all dressed up for the occasion.
Proud to say that now I am officially a journalist! Woot woot!
Have a lovely day x
