Today I met a real vintage-lover...
|I met this amazing young lady in the tube, we (Emily and myself) were on our way to |
the British museum and speaking to someone who is so passionate about vintage sure was a great start to my day.
|Stopped for a picture at The Brunswick.|
|The British Museum.|
It was so packed but great to see.
|We stopped for a picture after ducking from the pigeons|
|Then to M&M's to see four floors of sweets and all things M&M...|
|Young and old...everyone wants a piece of M&M's|
|We finished our day off at the National History Museum ice-rink.|
HAPPY BLOGGING...SEE YOU SOON :)

DOWN OXFORD STREET Today I wore a navy blue peter-pan collar jacket,brown and beige stripes jersey, beige fedora and tan boots and held a purple bag, for some edge to my look. So as we (me and my new roommate, Bindu) walked passed Harrods two girls came up to interview me. They asked me what I love about London and about the variety of fashion influences. I was super amped... I had to introduce them to Vintage Spillage! A great day it was indeed. HAPPY BLOGGING...SEE YOU SOON :)

|My cousin (Deborah Radebe) looks gorgeous in her taupe pencil skirt|
and off-white blouse. I love how this look encapsulates every facet
of femininity...*10 points*
NOT BEING LAZY TO TRY THEM ON BEFORE BUYING...
THE ''ROUND-FRAME'' SHADES...
|Lebo looks amazing in hers. Now all I'm waiting for is a call from my dad to tell me ''I told you so''.|
He has had a pair of round-frame shades for as long as I can remember and I was never a fan until now.

|''A little goes a long way''. This dress has no gimmicks, its cut is simple, yet very elegant. |

|I simply love the ''no-gimmicks'' approach to these two looks. |
The A-line dress works perfectly with the belt and the hat adds
more elegance to this suit.

|This A-line, lace wedding dress just puts a smile on my face. Its SIMPLY SUBLIMINAL|

Last weekend my friend and I headed down Brompton Road to feast our eyes on amazing creations
in stores such us as HOBBS, HAWES & CURTIS and HARRODS
and these were my favourite pieces...
|The detail and immaculate finish of this sequin dress is|
awesome...its indeed a show-stopper
|The lace and and velvet detail on this blouse adds some edge to its otherwise|
elegantly cut structure.
|Opulence at its best!|
I love the pattern on this (Gucci) dress and its complimentary colours give it the
|Gucci has plenty of bow-tie detail this season. This gorgeous number would look stunning|
with black or taupe heels, it's timeless
|This (Gucci) blouse boasts with frills and a bow-tie, it would look amazing paired with|
a black high-waisted skirt/slacks.
|(Close up of the frills and bow-tie detail)|
|This (Gucci) dress was my PICK OF THE DAY...I love the elegance it pervades. The snake-skin pattern, the shape of the sleeves, colours, bow-tie and length, are a beautiful combination! It left my jaw on the floor|
|If I could name this breath-taking dress, I'd call it ''Graceful Glide''...it's flowiness and elegant structure|
make it so feminine, yet the black gives it that punch of power. I think it best explains the modern woman.
|This dress immediately put a huge smile on my face...its so simple yet very striking.|
The pearls are a lovely addition to this master piece
|This stunning sequin and feather dress (by Matthew Williamson) is beyond me. Such a gorgeous creation|
|(The tag says it has been the designers' choice since 1895)|
|This power suit, as I'd like to call it, goes perfectly with the red blouse. It gives balance between|
femininity and the androgynous aspect of the jacket.
|The clean structure of this play suit and its peter-pan collar make it |
stand out. Its a perfect choice for a summers day outing with the girls :)
HAPPY BLOGGING! SEE YOU SOON...ANY COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS ARE HIGHLY APPRECIATED :)

I got plenty of vintage inspiration and came across two gorgeous vintage vixens and
a debonair bloke...they gave me more reason why ''in with the old and out with the new'' is always
|This lovely lady, caught my eye, she elegantly makes a bold statement with her |
mustard top and matching tights. The grey skirt and ankle boots perfectly completed her look as the cherry
on top...LOVE IT!
|(Second snap with the vintage vixen)|
|Another gorgeous vintage vixen who caught my eye was clad in a stunning tartan top|
and high-waisted pencil skirt. Her ankle boots were simply subliminal and her scarf added some edge to her look... *10 points*
|(Second snap with the vintage vixen)|
|When I saw those brogues, tartan scarf, blood-red corduroys, poor-boy cap and that navy blazer I just felt transported to a zeitgeist that I truly love. This debonair bloke was my last candidate of the day, and asking for a pic was worth while :)|
|(Second snap with the debonair bloke)|
This vintage car was the ultimate cherry on top!
