Treasure Hunting


Mid-season is always such a tough time to know what to wear. It's the most difficult time to buy stock as the weather has a mind of its own. My heart says ditsy florals but my head says faux fur. I'm glad May is just around the corner, hopefully with it comes some warmth & sunshine. 

Next week I'll be starting to source vintage pieces for the hazy summer days ahead, and of course festival season. I thought I'd do a blog post on the key pieces I will be looking out for this year. Treasure hunting is my favourite part of the job, so I hope you enjoy a little sneak peek into the process. 

When I'm handpicking stock I like to have an idea of what I'm looking for by prepping for the season with a mood board. It is so easy to get distracted; I'm like a magpie when I catch a glimpse of beading or sequins.


 
My focus for this summer is the 70's, I'll be looking for floral prints, frills & lace up detail. Folksy 70's prints are perfect for festival season. 

The 90's is another look that's back for summer, ditsy floral dresses and oversized denim. Rework is huge this year and I'd really like to get creative in my studio and customize some vintage pieces, making some super unique pieces for your summer wardrobes. 

Pretty embroidery detail is an obsession of mine at the moment. I love the prairie trend. I find my own personal taste is reflected in the stock that I pick. There is always at least one piece I want to sneak into my own wardrobe - but I won't I promise. 

Throughout the hand picking process I have to be very thorough with my selections, quality is very important it's something I pride myself on. I take time making sure there is no damaged garments going on my rail. 

My vintage pieces are then washed and ironed before the styling and photography begins. Then finally it's time for you guys to get your hands on them! I'm looking forward to sharing my summer finds with you very soon!
