Spring is my favourite season, but autumn is a close second behind it, entirely for its colours. When the trees are in different stages of decline, awarding the sight of red, yellow, orange, near-gold and green all mixed together side-by-side over the hedges of my garden, along the roads that lead me everywhere I go, my heart is made happy.

For a vintage-clothing loving girl, I’m actually woefully ignorant of, well, many aspects of vintage clothing.

They are, in short, my favourite company for cool weather wear, and this year’s Marilyn Monroe inspired collections have once more surpassed my high expectations.
