I spotted this fabulously floral vintage motor in Notting Hill on my travels last week... the interior was incredible, fully lined with luxurious fabrics and trims in pastel vintage shades and indian decorative beading and brocade.
It reminded me of one of my little Gems from the Wardrobe found last week in the countryside in fact- an amazing late 80s/90s French Vintage Denim Jacket, this is such a treasure and bang on trend for this summer, floral denim in faded hues it is short cropped length and the sleeves roll up nicely for those long summer evenings.
Team up with a little dress or rock the Double Denim look with a difference with washed out cut off shorts, either way this jacket is a great cut and a rare find!!
It is a size Medium and so could be adapted to fit most sizes, and is flattering to all due to it's cropped length and 80s denim jacket shaping.
As always please email for enquiries and prices to:
The 80s hula inspired, club tropicana trend is one of my favorites this summer season- expect pineapple and parrot conversational prints, cut off denims, tied up tshirts and crop tops and of course cocktails!!
Here are some images to inspire- so cut off those tshirts and combine with bright coloured shorts and maybe even one of my handmade necklaces for the look -

So today was a normal day... threw on my new techni coloured 80s American shirt, picked up my 50s style leather air hostess bag and skipped off to work... only to find out I won the Beyond Retro Prize Draw!
The vintage clad lovelies at Beyond Retro welcomed me with open arms, iced tea and cupcakes at their Marlborough Street store yesterday afternoon for some vintage shopping and lucky Lola won some treats! A gift voucher for the store and some fabulous personalized Beyond Retro Cupcakes, and a little bag of my favourites...home made french pastel colour macarons!- made by Stephanie Cakes.
