We'd love for you to join the conversation, so check out our style guide below for some inspiration from some of our favourite authentic reproduction brands.

Purchased the newly launched Diva size. Absolutely fabulous!  No more scarves required to get my bangles on and off.  Excellent quality and loving the range of colours available

Spring & Summer in Vintage-inspired Style 

Those fabulous beauties at Vivien of Holloway shared some fantastic pieces with us, including this classic white peasant top embroidered with red spots. The 1940s & 1950s styling really is faithful with their use of a gorgeous eyelet cotton, and a beautiful lace finish on the neckline. This style of top is instantly recognisable from the films of the Golden Era - the elasticated neck, waist & sleeve make for a good fit and so many ways to style! 

We’ve put together 3 different ways to style it, so grab your Peasant Top Classic White with Red Embroidered Spots & let’s getting styling ~ Which is your fave look? 

Vivien of Holloways' Peasant Top Classic White with Red Embroidered Spots






For this look we've stacked our lush Green Leaf bangle with our classic Elsie Bangle in our new for 2021 shade - Pale Yellow, along with our fruity Strawberry Bangle & Hazel Bangle in beautiful blue Neptune.

To compliment our juicy stack we've used our Strawberry Brooch, Primary Strawberry Earrings & Strawberry Necklace. And aptly teamed with Cam's Vintage Telephone cord bag (from her personal collection.) For details on these fantastic styles click the pics below!

We think it's perfect for a lovely beach walk in Freddies of Pinewood's Indigo Chorus Girl Shorts & Penahaus Sandals!

Then there's Style Two...

      COLLECTIF ACCESSORIES RAINA WIDE BRIM STRAW HATDora - White LeatherPocket Pencil Skirt Red Boucle

 We've put this look together in mind for a stroll in style, maybe around a car show or vintage market... something lovely outdoors! Based on a nice simple colour palette of red and white. Wide-brimmed straw hat by Collectif for some relief from the (hopefully) sunny days coming our way. Paired with Vivien of Holloway's Pencil Skirt & comfy Rocket Originals' Dora Sandals. Teamed with our Strawberry Bangles and Earrings & White Elsie Carved bangles, finished with a cute Vintage Wicker bag!

Or keep it fruity with Style Three...

 Vivien of Holloway Pedal Pushers Black penahaus Spring-o-lators Red Leather with White

 This look is great for early evening gig or long awaited drinks in the beer garden! A luscious pick of our Strawberry Baskets set, with our Strawberry, Leaf & White Elsie Fakelite Bangles. We'd slip on a pair of Vivien of Holloway's Cigarette Pants to stay warm, but throw some bad girl vibes with Penahaus Spring-o-lators. Team with a Clutch or a Lucite Box bag to finish off the look! 

We should probably mention... This outfit may not ideal for strawberry picking. But if you choose to - You'll be picking in incredible style!!
