Modern Retro

I’ve always been passionate about vintage fashion, however I haven’t bought any vintage for a long time. These days I don’t have the time to rummage through Ebay, Etsy or the second hand shops that used to be my regular haunts. However, old school style still influences the way I dress; my favourite 20th century decades are the 50s and 70s. I’m continually drawn to billowing sleeves, voluminous skirts and nipped in waists. I bought this dress from ASOS the year before last and even thought it’s made from thick scuba fabric, the cut is a direct lift from the 1950s. I’ve styled the look with a pair of retro-inspired shoes from the marvellous Joanne Stoker, a woman who really understands the charm of bygone eras.
