Vintage Flora

Ahhh its's been such a long time since I last wrote an entry, but rest assured I am back, and ready to take the Fashion world by storm! So I'm doing my confirmation this year (Catholic thing) and I had to choose a name of a saint, which will then be added after my middle name, as part of my name. If any of that made sense! Anyway I chose Flora - I thought it summed up me, and I have to say I really love the name!

So back to 'Vintage Flora' I thought that in tribute to my new name, I would do a selection of clothing reflecting the title of, Vintage Flora.

Vintage Flora to me means, faded colours, vintage jewellery, antique floral prints, brogues, crotchet, pearls, lace, chiffon..... you get the drift!

So let's embark on our latest journey....Vintage Flora.........


This is definitely one of my favourites of the looks. It is just so elegant and feminine, I wanna wear it so bad!! The dusty pink dress makes an excellent base, for the cute little knitted cardie. The headband ties all the gorgeous colours together. Wedges are perfect for this spring/summer look, and the umbrella - well I think that just compliments this outfit perfectly! The dress is from, the cardigan is from Topshop, the wedges are from, the headband is from tarinatarantino, and the umbrella is from modcloth.


This has a really laidback, country vibe to it, and would be just as at home, walking down by the seaside. The blouse is light and airy, and the dungarees are faded, and together they just look good! The blouse is from, the dungarees are from Topshop, the hat is from forever 21, the glasses are from, and the bracelet os from saks fifth avenue.


Now this is a look I could wear everyday of the week! All the colours totally go, and you can see its all about the details in this look. The dress has a floral print all over, and one on the straps. The straw bag is perfect for summer and trendy because its a satchel. The brogues are cool, because they have that slightly worn look, the bracelet again has flowers and pearls which is perfect for the look. Finally hair accesories are big news right now, especially cute feathery ones! The dress is from, the bag is from Topshop, the clip is from, the brogues are from, and the bracelet is from

This look is really geek chic, the floral print of the dress is very antique looking. The cardigan is vintage, I've teamed it with an old-looking locket, and some over the knee socks, I then added Alexander-Wang-esq
clogs. You can get the dress from topshop, the cardigan is from, the lockets from 1928, the socks are from modcloth, and the clogs are from Miss Selfridge. 


This look has it all, chiffon, floral print, cute pearly necklace, straw bag, straw shoes with the detail of flower print bow. This look is effortless. It's so dainty and pretty, wear it and know that you look wonderful! You can purchase the dress and cardigan from Miss Selfridge, the necklace from, the shoes from , and the bag from endless.

Love this look, especially the little lacey socks! I really do have a soft spot for cute socks with shoes, it's really bad. I literally can't get enough haha! You can get this vintage number from Miss Selfridge, the necklace from, the shoes are from, and the socks are also from Miss Selfridge - I do love that shop!

I had to include a boater hat in this entry.....It just felt oh so right! You can get it from, you can get this adorable cardigan from Jcrew, the dress is from Miss Selfridge (and if you look closely, you see that its been embroidered with little flowers) an finally the clogs are from

I hope you enjoyed reading my Vintage Flora post, and come back soon.
