wedding belles

Apologies for my lack of entries of late, I have been away for quite a while due to the fact that I was getting married! Short summary - perfect day, perfect man (of course) and my most perfect dress. Any of you out there in the same boat as I was a while ago and searching for THE dress need to pop along to the lovely ladies at the Vintage Wedding Dress Company in London. A vast array of gorgeous frocks - vintage and newly vintage inspired - await you in their stunning studio, while their calming influence will melt away any dress stresses you've been having immediately. From 1940s peachy lace to Edwardian high collars, their vintage collection is all-encompassing and if you can't find anything there then their Decades range of made to measure gowns is sure to fit the bill. Anyway, here is mine - a 1970s stunner of a dress with added silk sash and lace butterfly sleeves...

vice or nice?

For serious style credentials not generally seen on your average girl on the street, something that will spark that ever coveted 'OH where did you get that?!' from all and sundry visit Bitching and Junkfood's stunning online world. A collective of upcoming and extremely talented designers, as well as BaJ's own in-house labels 'Remade' and 'Two Weeks', this site is full to the very brim with unique and outstanding pieces. My favourites include the Neurotica vine print maxi dress, prettypretty floral cut out cardigan and the Rachel Freire High-Vis Suspender Trio (which I would absolutely kill to own!) although not so sure about the human hair drop earrings...?! Whatever you fancy, there'll be something for you so check it out.

They also have new and vintage clothing in their East London studios and available as stylists (as if you couldn't tell by their gorgeous shots on the site)
