Brag Vintage | Outfit Post

Brag vintage outfit post

Do you ever find a vintage piece so perfect you can't quite believe it wasn't made for you?

This is how I felt when I tried on this lovely midi dress from Brag Vintage, one of Sheffield's newest retailers of beautiful second hand wares. It's a fairly heavy fabric so this weekend's cooler weather was the perfect occasion to bust it out, and unlike most days when I'm hopping in and out of 3 or 4 outfits (I'm a restless animal) I've kept this on alllll day.

They've got a really fab selection of vintage frocks, and their summer collection has just gone live too, full to the brim of floral delicacies and reworked denim. Even if you're not a Sheffield local, they offer next day despatch on their orders too, and of course everything is unique!

Black slingback heels - Primark
Leather jacket - c/o French Connection
Patterned midi dress - c/o Brag Vintage 

It's a snug, stretchy material which clings to all the right places, and skims over the rest. If I had planned ahead I would have put my hair in rollers for some kind of 1940s look, but it works just as well bang up to date with my newest slingbacks from Primark I instagrammed earlier this month!

I think this could be the first time I've shown my blonde off properly too, I think? You guys seemed to love my ombre post thanks to Barrie Stephen a couple of weeks ago, and it's still looking just as bright. I'm trying out some nourishing products to keep the colour supple, as anyone who has bleached their hair before will know, dry hair is a pain in the ass!
