Dress Me Up Vintage! - part 2 Cotton Fields Vintage Official Opening!

Hello Lovely Readers,
This post is a continuation from yesterday blog post! Firstly today is rather exciting as Cotton Fields Vintage opens its online stores today and the lovely owner Jillian has been kind enough to give the followers of Her Name Is Cupcake a special discount code of 10% purchases on her site
with the code: lovecupcake. These photos below are ones I styled for her tropical trend a colourful mimsy of brights and patterns to make you stand out during our dreary british weather. 
The garments can be found on her site they are one-offs so you will have to be quick! 

choosing accessories for this shoot was very fun! i went into summer holiday mode picking up rosary bead bracelets in bright popping colours, a dinky camera necklace for a quirky edge and of course you will spot the topshop flower hairbands I spoke about in an earlier post this summer!
please go have a look at this wonderful site

p.s here is a cute little out-take of the models goofind about with the makeup artist

Dress Me Up Vintage - Part One

One of my favourite things as a little girl was playing dress up! I love and still adore rummaging in other peoples wardrobes and jewellery boxes! so when I was asked to style for a lovely young miss named Jillian who owns 'Cotton Fields Vintage' most recent photo shoot for there newely launched and very pretty website. I squealed like a very small excited child.

Jillian is not just another 'vintage' shop owner she carefully researches future fashion trends so her clothes reflect what is in style, are carefully sourced, one off and at prices a fashionista can afford. Ranging from the glorious 1950s to the dizzying 1980s your sure to find a something different. 
Her site gives regular blog updates, fashion forecasts and fashion tips how best to wear your newely aquired gladrags. 

Here are some photo's from the first photo shoot 'Berliner' mixing business with pleasure, and boy shapes with girly accessories. The  marvellous photographer that is Scott Critchon shot the following
and there will be some sneaky little outtakes from yours truely on part two of this post.


part two of this photoshoot will be up tommorow to celebrate the
opening day of 'Cotton Field's along with a special
suprise for my followers from the lovely Jillian!
