The Mshed's Vintage Fair and Laura Ashley : Three Vintage Pieces, Three Decades

The Mshed's Vintage Fair at the weekend was absolutely amazing! There were many stalls on all levels with a mixture of vintage clothing and accessories, vintage inspired handmade clothing and accessories, cakes, illustration, make overs and workshops! Hopefully they will do another one soon as there were so many things to look at!

Blind Lemon Vintage Fair @ Mshed

Ive realised that I am drawn to many Laura Ashley items and at the moment I have three pieces from three different decades (and i'm sure in the future i'll have many many more!)

 The latest addition is this lovely coat from the 1960's. It is in excellent condition shame the weather seems to have gotten too nice to wear it!!




 The next one is the beautiful dress I used for my photoshoot from the 1980's. Again good condition and with matching belt! This suits the weather beautifully!




The most recently produced from the late 1990's - This size 12 velvet jacket with diamonte button. I'm selling this on ebay HERE 




An amazing online resource, if you have bought a vintage item but are unsure as to what decade it is from, is the Vintage Fashion Guild Website which gives an A-Z list of many fashion brands. It gives a brief over view of the brands history and most usefully, pictures of clothing labels from throughout the brands years! Check it out!
