Vintage Inspired {Fashion Forward}

Fashion Forwarders could do worse than raid Grannie's wardrobe because vintage inspired fashion - and jewellery - is a really key trend for the spring and summer. It's classy, it's feminine and I love it!

Pair up a pretty vintage blouse with a classic pencil skirt and peep toe boots or combine a vintage jacket with a simple white t-shirt, skinny jeans and some brown leather boots. You'll look vintage, but you won't look as though you're heading to the retirement home early.

Pretty Vintage

The items I've chosen this week are inspired by the ShopRuche Look Book. It's full of pretty (and affordable) vintage inspired pieces, independently designed jewellery and ... they're having a sale!

If you're looking for the linky, head on over to Paper Pocket, where the lovely Katherine is hosting Fashion Forward for February.

  10. You don't have to excuse yourself Clair :) I'm only visiting your lovely Fashion Forward today... I'm being busy, sorry.

    I'm really loving vintage style these days... in clothing (love that skirt!) and jewelry but also in decor - love art deco style, for instance. Would love to have time (and money) to pick up the right decoration piece for the right place in my new home :)
