Sorry for the super long post but it seems to be getting harder and harder to narrow down each collection to only a handful of items to post on my blog. I am honestly falling more and more in love with every item I sell. Possibly because it’s coming into Summer and the vibrant and playful prints are quickly becoming more available to source on my op shopping trips. It’s like Christmas here right now and i have hundreds of dresses backlogged for the Summer season so space in my office is running extremely low.

Yesterday we found out the owners of our place have decided to sell and therefore we have 4 weeks to find a new space. It’s heart breaking and it couldn’t have happened at a more inconvenient time but then again when is moving house ever convenient? We inspected a place yesterday and it could possibly be a blessing in disguise – the two office spaces are just huge and perfect for expanding my store with plenty of built in storage. Either way, it’s going to be a stressful next few weeks but we’ll make it work. I’m hopeful.

In the meantime, i’ll continue to be listing new stock and this is a little preview of the 120 items I have coming to the store on tomorrow night starting at 7pm! I’ve decided to list items in lots of 10 every 10 minutes so it’s not such a mad rush to find your item within 120 pieces. A lot of girls were disappointed they missed out last time so i hope this creates a fairer chance for everyone. Let’s hope it works. Everything will be set buy it now prices again and I have decided to trial tops, shorts, and jackets so I hope you all find something you love!

This heavily bead embellished dress with an open criss cross back is a sneak peek of some breathtakingly beautiful vintage pieces I’ve been sourcing from a private seller in the UK. They’re quite expensive for me to source and I hardly make any profit on them but after seeing the detail, workmanship and quality of each piece can you blame me for getting them anyway? I would rather bring you all amazing vintage like this than make a lot of profit. Why? It’s never been about money for me and i think people forget my intentions as to why I do this. To put it simply, I just love it. If i didn’t I would have stopped a long time ago. People often say if you had the time you can just go op shopping yourself and find pieces like this (dress below) at a fraction of the price. If this was true i wish they would tell me where they go because out of all the years of op shopping I have seen something like this sitting in a charity store.

And if you have, my advice would be to snap it up quickly and never let it go.
