A Bit of Vintage yet so modern

Pity I wasn’t around in the 1950’s as I really like the Vintage style with the “Pin up ladies” Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. They always looked so glam, sexy and classy at the same time.

I see more and more young ladies now buying vintage fashion and it makes me smile that everything comes back eventually and I wonder what the next fad will be. In my teenage years I was into the 1970’s look with flares, wedge shoes and flick up hair like Farrah Fawcett. Then I went onto the punk scene as I was quite a shy person, this brought me out of my shell and I could hide behind “The Uniform”.

When I search for new stock I like to buy something which I think would suit everybodies wardrobe and budget depending on the trend at the time.

Here are a few vintage style accessories which I think are fun and affordable.

I wish the sun would stay out

If you are like me and live in the UK, you are probably so fed up of the rain and just want a bit of sun to come our way. Slowly but surely we have been getting a glimpse of it.

I think we all feel a bit better and a bit more livelier when the sun comes out and it makes us appear friendlier and we often smile at random people in the street. It  even makes me want to bring out some more colourful clothes out of the wardrobe instead of my normal black. Saying that I still revert back to the black trousers just for safe measures, but the odd colourful accessory will come out like a handbag, bracelet or pair of earrings.

Now Spring is here I have started to add a splash of colour to my website and instead of just having black handbags and the normal safe colours, I have got some funky bags in great colours to show you. This one is great as it’s a mixture of blues, greens and various other colours and looks great with a long maxi dress for sunny days to create that Boho chic look. Priced at only £7.99 I think it’s a great buy which looks great to use at a festival, holidays or simply just for everyday use.

I will be adding more throughout the week so keep your eyes peeled at belindashandbagsandaccessories.co.uk for new ideas for your wardrobe.
