So I visited London for a few days and apart from catching up with my lovely friends, I also met up with my favorite photographer there, John from Portraits and Pinups. I had some beautiful items to shoot, all from Top Vintage. Their new Spring/Summer collection is already available and trust me when I say, you will want to get everything!!! I chose some basics, that I’ll be able to get a lot of wear out of and combine them in many different ways…
I split the blog post in two parts even though the outfit is the same from the waist down, but I didn’t want to post all the pics in one post. We did the shoot around the river Thames in London and I absolutely froze, wearing spring/summer clothes in 7 degrees Celcius. It’s hard being a model, I know! 😛
Let me start with the trousers: I love them! They’re comfy and stylish and very light weight. They have that signature navy style, that’s wider at the bottom and they’re high waisted. I chose size XS, because I like my trousers to fit my waist and I don’t mind if they feel a tiny bit tighter at the hips. As long as I don’t gain weight, lol!
The cardigan is the cutest thing! Feels soft to the touch and you can wear it buttoned up or open with something underneath. And I love the bright red color, but you can find it in many other colors if you prefer…
The shoes, are very dainty and cute and quite comfortable I should say. And guess what? They’re vegan! You can actually find quite a few Vegan leather options at Top Vintage and they’re all beautiful! You don’t need to wear real leather to look stylish and vintage… 😉
That bag though…. I got so many compliments for it! Even some musicians stopped me to ask if I was carrying drums, haha! It’s not the most practical bag to carry around, but when did we care about that?!
And last but not least, the lovely hat, that is so easy to wear. There is a metal clasp inside the hat so it feels quite secure when you wear it. And it goes so well with many vintage hairstyles, long or short!
P.S.: You’ll see more close ups of the trousers and bag in my next post…
So what do you think of the outfit? Do you have a Spring/Summer wishlist already?
