With the schools now broken up for there 6 week break, August is almost upon us and summer Is in full swing, well atleast that's what my calendar says. As i was sat typing this the rain was lashing down outside and i am back wearing knitwear.
Summer in Cornwall you have to be prepared for all weather eventualities. One day your in your swimwear, styling your shorts the next your rocking a rain mac and your chelsea boots are back on as you brave the puddled streets. Living in Cornwall i am so grateful to live by the coast. You will find me after hours on the beach. The girls love a cheeky chippy dinner at our favourite spot. whats better than a beer in the sand!
Summer styling for me is all about cotton summer dresses, with pretty floral's. This season i am enjoying styling high waisted maxi skirts worn with flirty crops. A sun hat is a must for me! On a day off with my girls i love to wear cool play suits like the handmade versions i have in-store made by the ever talented Happy Abbey Threads made from vintage up-cycled bedding, which makes them super cool, really soft and a joy to wear. Each one completely unique! She has also made me a suitcase of reduced reused recycled shorts from surplus denim stock. Shorts are effortless summer styling and can be dressed up or dressed down whatever the occasion or weather there a wardrobe staple that will never go out of fashion! She has added even more colour and character to each pair by adding hand stitched detailing. I love them!
In-store i got all your summer wardrobe essentials in many sizes, many styles of course with all the sass! A huge selection of handpicked sustainable fashion including vintage dresses, beautiful skirts, even sandals that will take you from the beach to the bar! This weeks feature rail also includes a super awesome stock drop of 80's knitwear vests. Available in-store and online! All only a Tenner!! Bargain! They are so versatile can be worn now tucked into your favourite vintage for a retro look or style them into Autumn by layering over long sleeves! They look great over a polo neck. How will you style yours? I have loved wearing mine i kept from the collection. Perks of the job right! Worn here with a skirt i have had since my teens. For me that's what vintage styling is all about. Finding statement sassy vintage you can rework an restyle over and over!
I look forward to seeing you in-store soon. Wherever you are whatever you wear. whatever the weather! Embrace the season.
Be Your Sass, wear what makes you happy.
