London

Our weekend our in London was fun but poignant too and got me thinking about vintage clothes and the realities behind some of the garments.

Read more about our visit to the Imperial War Museum as well as general musing on how history links to vintage and our real lives.

We bagged a few words with Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer before his performance last night…he reveals how an umbrella can be a crucial accessory for the chap about town.

Chap-Hop Hoorah! Latest blog post if you click this link before I go and see the notorious Mr B in action. Chars for reading chaps. Pip pip.

Great blog post discussing whether 1990’s is in fact now considered as vintage or not… although I’m not ready to delve into selling 1990s vintage just yet (I’m sure I will in a few years when the memories of teenage years in that era have faded somewhat), and I’m not sure I am ready to “enjoy” the 1990s (again) I totally agree with her closing statement:

One of the ways that I define vintage is the ability to follow your own fashion whim, regardless of whether it’s currently in style.
