Vintage Fairs, Vox Pops and Road Trips….

Wow, what a busy couple of weeks. I’ve been very lucky to have been doing some work for Lou Rota, helping her out with a commission for a boutique hotel. This involved covering chairs with newspaper (I’ve never been so up on world politics!) and then decorating them with beautiful decals.
I absolutely love her work and she has been a fountain of knowledge to me, so thank you Lou and look forward to doing some more work with you in September.
Last weekend saw the South bank come alive even more than usual and step back into a pre war era becoming a vintage village. I was one of the lucky few to be chosen by Etsy to showcase a few of my vintage treasures giving What Comes Around London some welcome exposure.
While sat eating a lemon chicken and oregano taco in the vintage village admiring the fabulous outfits and feeling like I was at an haute couture fashion show! My boyfriend and I decided to do a micro vox pop, voicing peoples opinion on all things vintage, the results are below…
And so to the next adventure! A road trip across Europe ending up in Denmark, where I will be on the hunt for mid century furniture to bring back to the UK. This is some mean feat as currently we are due to leave on Thursday and still have no mode of transport! Any ideas greatly received!?

Working with Lou…

My vintage day out…

Vox pop – Why do you love vintage…?

Karina & Carl – “They knew how to make clothes back then”

Buki Fadipe – “It’s a chance to dress up and feel fabulous!”

Mr Pants – “I love looking different and all the attention”

Maggie & Kate Stevens – “The clothes are so much better made, it’s fun dressing up and we like to look different. All the clothes on the high street look the same!”
