Inherited Grace.










Last Thursday the 5th of July, Inherited Grace - a vintage store based in Essex - held a press evening, inviting different people from the industry and offering a friendly glass of wine. Unfortunately I could not make it, but the girls have been lovely and sent me the pictures from the event! When I first heard of Inherited Grace, I mooched on the website and found the cutest of dresses for £25, great vintage bags for £10 and a whole lot more for very affordable prices. The other thing I love about this store is that when you visit the website and look on the homepage, the clothes which suit current trends are collected to make beautiful outfits and looks - currently Prints Charming (clashing, bold prints), HQ Couture (glam office wear), Sherbert Dip (pastel colours, flirty skirts and crop tops) and Gatsby Girl (1920's style black and gold). I am in love with the Great Gatsby trend, I have always been fascinated by 1920's styles and I have found a new top to obsess about which is the gold sequin diamond top from the Gatsby Girl collection - and at £25 it is a bargain find!
Vintage clothing has always interested me - when I lived in Bath I used to spend hours of my free time rummaging through the weekend market, visiting the vintage stores on my way to work and having a look in charity shops. I once found a real leather vintage clutch bag for 20p! It's rare that I find a dress I like and it is in my size (the downside of looking at vintage clothes is that if you really like something and it doesn't fit there's no way around that problem!) but I have had some great finds over the years. A paisley scarf for 30p, my 20p clutch bag, a pearl necklace for £1.... My friend once stumbled upon a genuine vintage Dior bag for £70! I guess the point is you just have to keep looking for what's out there and know that real bargains hide in places you'll least expect.
I will be keeping my eye on Inherited Grace as I have already seen a few pieces which will go on my pay days shopping list, if you would like to have a look visit www.inheritedgrace.co.uk
