Last month I got the chance to model for El Costurero Real, a Barcelona based clothing brand specialised in fantasy garments. If, like me, you are a big fan of fairytales and the Victorian era, then you’ve come to the right place.
Many of us vintage enthusiasts are fascinated by the atomic designs from the 50s and early 60s. The Atomic Era was a cultural, social and artistic movement that took place in America between the late 1940s and the mid 1960s. Midcentury designs are hard to find nowadays, but thanks to some vintage inspired brands like Los Flamingo and Piplotex, one can go back to those years.
Last week I had the opportunity to visit London for a quick break. In fact, I decided with my friend @ginnyfromthepast that it would be fun to go shopping there. And it’s been an amazing trip!
We both visited some of our favourite shops, a secret 1940s inspired cocktail bar and many, many other things worth a visit if you’re there.
Sometimes I like to remind myself of how far I’ve come. As a girl who suffered a lot of body issue struggles during her teen years, I am so excited and thrilled to announce I’m on a cover of a magazine. If I could talk to the insecure and shy teenager that I was and tell her that, in 10 years time, she would be on a cover of a magazine, things could have gone slightly different.
Next Friday is one of the most anticipated days of the year: Black Friday! It’s a popular tradition in the United States after Thanksgiving. All shops and companies offer incredible discounts so people can start buying their Christmas gifts.
Luckily, in the past years Black Friday has become a worldwide celebration. If you are looking for discounts on your favorite vintage inspired shops, now’s the time to prepare yourselves for the big day.
Remember to be organized. Check your favorite shops to see any hints on what type of discount might they offer, and check your favorite items. Don’t forget to be sure about the sizing before Black Friday.
Black Friday is like The Hunger Games. Some sites crash during the sale and even if it seemed you had purchased an item, maybe it won’t. Check your email at all times to ensure the payment and order is processed.
If you order from countries which will requiere customs and other taxes, I recommend you to even buy in different orders to ensure you don’t pay a lot in customs.
Here are some of the most popular shops and brands that will do a Black Friday sale next week:
