ruffles and romance

Mood board no. 1 for one of this summers hottest trends! think 90s courtney love meets alice in wonderland at a garden party - pastel shades, satins and lace mixed with washed out denim and sneakers, throw on a leather jacket over a vintage slip and voila!

I've been sourcing some really beautiful 60s slips and baby doll nighties, layer these over a white tshirt for the underwear as outerwear trend this season also,

Vintage at Goodwood

Lola's Vintage Wardrobe will be selling our beautiful hand selected vintage wares at Vintage at Goodwood this August!

This promises to be one fabulous festival, celebrating 5 decades of British cool, day and weekend tickets are available so check out their website and book yourself a ticket for a great weekend filledwith artists, fashion and music from the 1920s through to the 1980s.... roller disco, posh camping, great food and even better shopping! We will be there in the market place amongst several other vintage sellers, in a our pop up boutique featuring some of our finest clothing, accessories and home wares in a decadent setting!

So get a ticket and come visit me and the fabulous fifi: we'll be tapping our toes to some 50s rock n roll and drinking punch from our 50s punch bowl i suspect, and of course we'll be dressed to impress so come dress up with us behind our 1920s screen and have an incredible summer weekend!

Like a holiday into your favorite decade in the past....just what i always wanted!

One Damn Fine woman in One Damn Fine Dress

I had to take a moment to post this incredible Dress modeled by one of the super supers of the 90s, Cindy Crawford herself makes this dress look as shit hot as it truely is, bold coloured linings and intricate, clever pleats and folding makes this one a hell of a Little Black Dress! (These 2 gals were shot for Vogue 1992 and lets not forget the 3 ladies from TLC in thier earlier style)

Achieve this look this summer with some clever placement of Bright Bold fabrics and Accessories... Loving the 90s this season! So here's a few more beauties from the newly certified Vintage Era! I'm gradually filling my stock pile with some real genuine and fabulous 90s pieces for you all for this summer! You lucky Lot!

hunny bunny

hope everyone had a lovely easter weekend filled with easter egg hunts and sleeping in on the long weekend! Thought you all deserved a little peek at what lola believes to be the true style of easter.....

Vintage bunnies!

these are images from the original 1960s playboy bunnies, perhaps achieve this look with simply a powder puff, a safety pin and some good old fashioned confidence and voila! instant bunny!

Oh Sew Vintage

here are a few images from my more creative of vintage photography moments.... looking and putting together vintage trimmings and sewing bits and bobs from my rather large collection! I will be selling trimmings by the yard (keeping it retro) this season, as well as mix cards of vintage buttons.

I LOVE vintage haberdashery, lace is really on trend again this season especially in vintage pastels and worn tones, so get sewing ribbons and lace edges onto plain knits and denim shirts for a bang on trend vintage springtime look !
