Vintage Wonderland

25 July 2012

It's not difficult to spot a little bit of vintage inspiration in our favourite High Street retailers so when Miss Selfridge presented up a small selection of their archive one morning, I couldn't wait to see it all in person! Miss Selfridge's creative Director, Yasmin Yasuf has the enviable job of having coveted all the vintage pieces in the room and I was delighted to see all these dresses in person that were collected from her travels.

The embellishment and detail in all the pieces are just incredible. It's funny because you can instantly see the Miss Selfridge inspiration when you walk into the room. Everything is SO Miss Selfridge.

Oh yeah and did I mention that it was breakfast and everything was served in these awesome vintage china cups? Such a perfect way to spend a morning in vintage wonderland. I still can't believe that this was only a small selection of their Spring Summer vintage archive, there is so much more and this makes me curious as to what other high street retailers have hidden in their HQ basements.

As you can imagine, it was super difficult to choose just a few pictures so I'm going to be popping all of the other photos (there are soooo many more!) that didn't make it over on my Facebook page!

    I really like that print / pattern book! That looks like such an amazing resource to have around. And that top with the chi-po like collar...so beautiful.
