♥ OOTD: Everyday Retro Style ♥

Dress: Marks & Spencer (old)
Boots: André (old)
Bag: gift

I've already said multiple times that I love everything vintage and retro. I don't wear this style of clothes very often, because unfortunately retro brands are quite expensive, and I struggle to find real vintage pieces that suit me in second-hand shops. My collection will be growing slowly I guess, and maybe in a few years' time I'll have a closet full of vintage clothes! 
I love this dress from Marks & Spencer. To me, it has a 1940s vibe to it in the top part especially, the sort of shirt-like part of the dress. The print is super cute as well, a cross between feathers and hearts. I'm in love with the coat as well. It was my one of my Christmas presents from my parents, and it is just what I was looking for - and it keeps me so warm! If you're looking for a good coat with a classic, timeless look, you should check out Marks & Spencer. 


In a more personal note, I'm feeling very happy with how my blog is looking right now. I have lots of blog post ideas and plans, and hopefully I'll be doing more OOTDs in the future. Now that January is over, I'm feeling better, ready to work, plan ahead and share more positivity that what I'd been doing this past month!

Do you like vintage-inspired clothes? Do you know any good shops that sell retro clothing?

  1. You look amazing!! I so thought that it was a blouse + skirt, but I love dresses that look like that! I agree, it has a modern take on the 40's look. Very lovely indeed.
    As you know, I love love love vintage inspired clothing. And it's true it can be quite expensive with vintage inspired clothing. But I think true vintage is quite expensive too. ModCloth isn't too expensive, and Unique Vintage is also nice. And Lindybop has really good sales from time to time.
    Much love,

  2. I like vintage clothing on others, but I can't imagine myself in them, and also paying so much for the vintage pieces kinda puts me off. Your dress and the neckline is adorable, I like the hearts on it. x

    1. Well it's true that real vintage can be quite expensive, for clothes that have already been worn and don't necessarily look brand new! Thank you Ela! xx

  4. I think Modcloth has a lot of vintage/retro styles! They can be a little pricey though. I love the longer pencil skirt here, it looks so chic with your coat!
