I have been completely submerged into the wonderful world of vintage print and texture since starting my job at Beyond Retro a month ago. Everything I have brought has had a massive folk presence and has just got me super excited for holiday and the festival season!
I'm going to Morocco in May for a wedding and a little holiday so I'm starting to buy things for that. I want my wardrobe to have major Morocco vibes so have been opting for rich colours and prints.... Obviously!
1. Beach Cafe Sunchaser Pants
On holiday you always want easy things to throw on by the beach or pool to be both cool and stylish. These trousers are going to be my godsend for holidays this summer. They fit like a dream, are super comfy and are amazing pastel crochet! What more can I ask for?!
Since working with them previously I have absolutely fallen head over heels for their bikinis. The fabric and fit makes such a difference and I'm very excited to wear this new animal print one which I think would look amazing with a headpiece and floaty kimono!
3. eBay Headpiece
I'm always on the lookout for unusual jewellery and headpieces and this is just divine! A great statement piece to wear at night and will dress up the most simplest of outfits with a glamorous touch... All for £10!
The folk and world traveller influences which are now hitting the high street heavily for SS14 have got me all in a tizzle! It just gives me
excuses to wear more pattern, colour and texture... Yes I said MORE (if that's possible!) go to town this season to create breathtaking ensembles!
I have the biggest soft spot for Moxham! My black leather necklace I got for my birthday is my all time favourite and the new collection has got me very very excitable! White connecting segments which make up this piece of art which also comes in a bracelet and wait..... A headband!! Shut the front door! I need it all...
6. Beyond Retro Folk Jacket
I'm not just saying this because I work for them but vintage is the answer to recreating runway looks and trends. This jacket is obscenely good and perfect for the folk SS14 trend. Mix vintage with high street and you will realise... Vintage is the key!
7. eBay Beige Cape
Since watching the burberry show over and over again and wanting to re create every single look I came across this beauty on eBay! This beige cape is my must have piece for spring. Perfect to team over floaty dresses like the burberry show and be good to go for SS14. Great find!
8. Jeffrey Campbell Boots
I have wanted a pair of animal printed boots for a while now but haven't found the right pair. Until now! Jeffrey Campbell never fail to amaze and these quirky boots have a hidden wedge inside which I really like! It's always nice to have a bit of a lift- even better when no one knows! Really unusual print- definite purchase!
I know it's the AW14 show but I just want it all right now! Looks like this are perfect for spring layering floaty dresses with light capes and ethnic influences in the accessories. This whole show is basically my dream so you will have to excuse me if I try and dress like this for the foreseeable future!
