Vintage clothing is an investment (or a bargain!) that enriches any wardrobe - I love finding unique and colourful pieces to add to mine. This little gem was a hand-me-down from my best friend (her wardrobe clear outs are seriously the best! Folk inspired patterns and prints are my absolute favourite - pieces from the 70's always look incredible, and better with age.

I'm sharing with you my top tips on how to hunt down vintage gems - be sure to let me know what your secrets are to ensure a good vintage hunt!

- Know your budget. You don't have to spend a lot of money to grab beautiful vintage pieces and depending on your budget, choose the store/market you'll be visiting. Charity shops are a great way to search for vintage gems if your budget is a couple of quid, but cities like Bath have incredible vintage boutique shops.
- Get out of your comfort zone. Try on new things, experiment with colour and shape (like the 80s shoulder pads!) - vintage shopping is pure fun!
- Don't be put off by the smell. I know this sounds weird, but I have had so many people comment on how vintage stores and markets smell like old people but honestly there's no room for snobbery in good old vintage. If you find a dress/top/shirt you really like just go for it - washing machines were made for a reason.
- Search for hidden stores. Although there are high profile markets and stores, be sure to visit vintage stalls and shops in cities you're passing through. I found an amazing shop in Hastings that I have never heard of before but they have incredible stock that I just fell in love with!
