Vintage Every Day in November Days 8-14

At the beginning of November I set myself a challenge to wear and record a different vintage outfit everyday throughout the month. The aim was to wear some of my collection that I don’t wear very often and to show that vintage can be worn every day.

I shared my first week of outfits a few days ago, and this is what I wore during the second week of November. I hate doing outfit photos indoors, however the weather has been so rubbish that I decided inside was better than nothing. My Cath Kidston cowboy wallpaper in my hall have proved popular on Facebook and Instagram!

November 8November 8th – I wore a vintage 80s skirt which I bought in a charity shop, with a black vest top and cardigan and a very old Primark necklace. This is almost identical to the outfit I wore to Hampton Court a few weeks ago.

November 9November 9th – I wore one of my very favourite dresses. I bought this beautiful 1950s dress at the first Classic Car Boot Sale on the Southbank last year. I did a little beehive in my hair and added a vintage scarf which I picked up at a vintage fill-a-bag sale.

November 10November 10th – I wore a 1950s shirt dress which I bought on eBay with a belt from another vintage dress. I absolutely love the print on this dress, although it’s a little longer than I usually like.

November 11November 11th – I wore a 1960s checked shirt dress which I bought in a charity shop on The Isle of Wight this summer, with a Primark belt and brogues.

November 12November 12th – I wore an original 1950s black polka dot dress, I absolutely love the cute white cuffs and collar on this dress. I picked it up at Assembly Vintage at The East End Thrift Store. I added a belt from a charity shop and glittery black shoes.

November 13November 13th – I wore a 1960s dress, which started falling apart as the day went on, first the darts started coming undone, then the zip broke – good job I was at home all day! The dress is now in my repair pile. I bought it at the vintage poundshop at The East End Thrift Store.

November 14November 14th – I wore an 80s does 50s dress which I bought on eBay and some vintage bakelite bangles. I also did my hair in a vintage set. I don’t usually have time to curl my hair especially as there’s so much of it, but with the help of bendy rollers I achieved this in no time. Future tutorial maybe?

I hope you like my outfits! I’ll trying to post new ones every day on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #vintagefrillsnovember although I’m a couple of days behind as I’ve had a crazy week!

    You know, not everyone can pull off wearing vintage dresses, but you sure can. I love your hair up in the second set with the bandana and red lipstick and also in the last set with the curls. So pretty!

    Such wonderfully pretty looks, dear gal! You and floral prints go together like bread and butter. (They’re a perpetual favourite of mine as well.)

    Love love love these outfits! What size are you? I find it so difficult to find vintage clothes in a 16 🙁

      I’m a size 14, it’s definitely harder to find vintage in larger sizes. The best thing is to know your exact measurements and really shop around. A lot of my clothes come from eBay and Etsy.
