Pretty in Polka #Retrostylecomp

Vintage clothing and style is one of my favourite things about fashion, I actually used to sell vintage clothing before moving over into the world of writing and styling.  I loved the thrill of finding new and unusual trinkets and pieces at fairs, car boot sales and charity shops.  Nowadays vintage is everywhere and you don’t have to hunt high and low to find unique and stylish items.  So when I heard about Beyond Retro’s #retrostylecomp I just had to enter my favourite items in a hope to win some of their fabulous vintage goodies. 
The amazing items I have chosen to share my vintage style are a mixture of present Spring/Summer 14 trends mixed with a retro pretty spring picnic look.  My favourite pattern is polka dot and this dress fits my love of polka perfectly (I even have a polka dot bow tattoo).  Tan and chocolate browns match brilliantly with this bright red dress and give a hint of ‘At the Races’ sophistication and it’s also a cute feminine look, perfect for summer parties.

I picked items that would flatter my body shape and personal style and I would wear this outfit for many occasions including summer soirees and festival fun.  I love the freedom vintage clothing gives you in styling a unique outfit with items that no-one else has.  It’s also great to mix vintage pieces with present trends to create a fabulous statement style.
