The annual Advantage In Vintage Wedding sale

Every year in Feb/March I offer up a super special wedding sale with my lovely friend Naomi, and the time has come again!

This year (partly owing to storage facilites) there are less wedding dresses on offer and many more fabulous accessories, pieces of lingerie, jewellery and tiaras. Yet again I’m offering up pieces in a range of sizes. Everything from childrens (there’s a christening gown included!) to size 18.


Not only that but I have a great mix of both original vintage pieces and a few modern vintage inspired pieces. Whether you want something old, something new or something blue- there’s something for you.

It’s official. Spring has sprung! Or at least it feels like it here in London, it’s decidedly warmer and the sun is ACTUALLY SHINING!

I have to say though as someone who is always cold I need some knitwear still. Here are 8 of the best vintage inspired Springtime jumpers and cardigans available online right now.

I love anything with a bit of faux fur trim.

Exciting things coming up….

It’s been a bit quiet around these parts for a while- work/ writing/ selling/ making sure I had a bit of “me” time got in the way!
