Shop the Retro closet

 A long story short i am on Instagram and have fallen in love with a store that is run by one of the loveliest women i have ever met.

Her name is Damilola and it is her mission to bridge the gap between trendy and vintage.

Damilola also takes the time and effort to source the clothes from a good quality supplier of vintage wear, rather than just ordering it all online and it turning up a week later. She likes to feel the clothes and really get a sense of how they can be worn. Whilst also making sure her customers are getting the quality they deserve.

I met up with her in Manchester a few weeks ago to look at some of the clothes that were available, now because I’m not rich and because Damilola isn’t running a free gift shop i only came away with 2 pieces of clothing…all though i wanted everything!

The clothing that she showed me was all very good quality, nice thick and heavy material that typically screams vintage. It has lasted this long so it should last a life time.

I would definitely recommend buying stuff from her, it is all unique and once that one item has gone its gone so you need to make sure your quick!

Here are some Images in the stuff that i purchased. This lovely cream jumper/top It is perfect for this time of year, its too warm for big coats and jackets but too cold not to have at least a jumper on. I wore this without having anything on underneath apart from under wear. It didn’t itch my skin or anything.

Below is my favourite top, its a denim colour material, 100% cotton. I love the pattern on the front, really sweet. This you can wear buttoned up or you can have it open like a jacket, both ways work really well and if your wearing anything high wasted you can even turn it into a crop top by tying the bottom together. Again, great for the time of year, its substantial enough to keep you warm with out it being over bearing!
