Sunday at a Vintage Fair

On Sunday I ventured out in the cold to a Vintage Fair at St Stephen’s near Belsize Park.

It was definitely worth the effort, and I would love to give Soph, from Bamble Vintage, a big thank you for inviting me to the fair and letting me know about it!

Palazzo Pants – Hot Right Now.

I have seen a few people wearing palazzo pants wandering around the City.  This look was originally from the 1970s – I believe Karl Lagerfeld popularised the look back in the 70s (correct me if I’m wrong!).  Isn’t it funny how the 70s look has come back.  Will this be a lasting trend or a fleeting trend?

Top 4 Vintage Reproduction Online Shops

I love buying Vintage, however it is hard to buy true Vintage because often the ‘cheaper’ options are for viewing purposes only or the more expensive items are too expensive.  However, there have been times when I have been able to buy true Vintage.

I love looking at Reproduction shops, particularly the shops where the owners have made the clothes to a actual vintage pattern and not just taken all the ‘popular’ things from that era and put them into all their items.

For example, the 50s wasn’t full of pinups, cherry print materials and halter dresses.

And now, after that lengthy introduction, here is my list of my Top 4 favourite Vintage Repro shops:

2) Rocket Originals:

rocket originalsThis shop is just amazing.   They have the most gorgeous knits and twinsets that any 40s and 50s lover would need in their wardrobe.  Whilst I haven’t bought any shoes yet, they do look like they are true vintage, however they are just made to look true vintage!

2) Heyday Vintage Style:

Heyday makes clothes based on looks from the 1930s, 40s and 50s.  I love the clothes they have on there because they look like true Vintage.  I recently purchased the denim 1940s style pants below.  I can’t wait to receive them in the post.  My mum and I got matching pairs 😀  The pants were 55 pounds…which is a bit pricey, but certainly a lot cheaper than other shops and also worth the money spent!denim

3) Red Dress Shoppe:

reddressshopeThis shop has an amazing collection of dresses, tops and skirts.  The prices seem to range from $15-100.

I am currently in love with this skirt:

The Cycle Skirt

4) Buffalo Gal Vintage:

Buffalo Gal Vintage

Buffalo Gal Vintage also has a great range of reproduced Vintage clothing.  It ranges from Steampunk, burlesque, 1920s-70s swim suits/coats/blouses etc.   The prices do range from low to high.

Alternatively, one can also go on etsy or ebay and find many reproduction clothing shops on there.

Does anyone else have favourite Vintage Repro sites/shops that they visit often?  I’d like to find some more!
