My favourite pins of February. You can see my boards at http://www.pinterest.com/jennyvintage/pins/
I just found out about Loup from Calivintage this morning and it’s all so pretty! If you’re sad that you’re not Jane Birkin, go and look at the sweet little Paris-inspired dresses, all made in New York. I love this one but I’ve promised to not by myself anything new for months – 2015 needs to be the year of austerity.
But oh –
I love my Coco Fennell bee dress. I love it so much I bought it twice – the first time, too cocky to believe the ‘dry clean only’ label, I washed it and it shrank… about two dress sizes. It still fit but it was too tight to look like the tea dress it used to be so I gave it to my petite friend Auriol and bought another.
This dress is perfect for those London lunch meetings I still have to go to every once in a while and for more special occasions, such as this wedding where my sister and I were the photographers for the whole day. Side note – being a wedding photographer is exhausting. It’s fun but it’s non-stop all day. Grab a pint before you start and wear flat shoes.
When we finally got a quiet moment at the reception, this kissing booth plus novelty glasses obviously equalled a lot of bee dress posing…

Most of my favourite clothes are autumn/winter outfits so I’m so happy I can finally dress properly again. I got this great little 1960s shift from Camden Thrift Store on Chalk Farm Road in August and now that it’s cool enough outside and I’ve had it shortened to a mini, I’ve worn it loads. If you have never been to Camden Thrift Store I highly recommend a trip – it’s got a pretty big variety of women’s and men’s clothing and the prices are great (I think this dress was only £15). And the owner’s lovely!

I’ve been pretty excited about the unveiling of Coco Fennell’s latest collection for a few weeks. Ever since her teaser shots on Instagram I’ve been staring at the Penny Lane dress (top) and the Tiger Tiger dress (an update of the very popular bee, lasso and pill motifs of past seasons).
Here are my favourites…
I just came across For Love & Lemons the other day and their Autumn 2014 look book is so pretty. I love the tones, the prints and the sultry cuts.
