Friday Fashion Feature

After a few weeks of a self inflicted ban on myself from shopping for items I can wear (insanity!), I am now allowing myself to get back into the swing of things it feels amazing to shop again! I have purchased a few bits and pieces lately and in my search for a new playsuit, I've stumbled across this uber cute website - Blue Velvet Vintage - classic fashions for classy dames.

Blue Velvet Vintage stocks everything you could want or need to deck yourself out from head to toe in beautiful pre-loved vintage. The best thing about the site that stock is kept up to date (i.e. not all 'SOLD'), the measurements are accurate & there is clarity around what is genuine vintage stock and was is a reproduction. They have an alluring collection of lingerie, crinoline slips, nightgowns, kimonos, loungewear, peignoir sets, robes and glamorous Hawaiian and pin up style swimsuits from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. It's love at first site.
