How Would You Pop The Question?

As some of you may be aware, yesterday was in fact  National Proposal Day! People from all across the country use this as an opportunity to propose or hint to their significant other that they are thinking along the lines of marriage bells! We thought we'd celebrate by rounding up our favourite ways to pop the question!

Wow an offer of macaroons and matrimony! What more could you ask for? We'd say this bodes well for a happy future together :).

Now this is certainly one way to get their attention and anyone else in the vicinity! We love the effort that has gone into this proposal plan.

Put a ring on it with the help of the trusty family pet! Overloading them with cuteness can only be a good thing...

Winning them round with sweets. We like! What a thoughtful touch.

Flourishing Fashions! Best Looks This Spring Season!




Feature: Kinarino.jp  


We adore Spring and all the flower power prints it brings! It is quite simply a immensely upbeat season and inherently the fashions seem to reflect this tremendously buoyant mood. The 70s boho spirit seems to live on in beautiful beatnik dresses, houses are decorated  from ceiling to floor in bunches of daffodils  and you can't look anywhere without spotting some floral embroidery adorning accessory. 


Styling

This striking floral midi shirt dress makes a fab feature to your Spring/Summer wardrobe  with its eye popping print and low-key, laid-back fit. Get yours here at: http://www.rockmyvintage.co.uk/dresses/new-in/sugarhill-boutique-faye-floral-midi-shirt-dress.htm .  We'd pair this with this stunning fairy-tale floral flick as it is one of our favourite make up looks to try for the upcoming warmer months. We think it'll create the ultimate sixties chick vibe and achieve a subtle yet striking effect that'll enhance your overall look!  





This beautiful blue floral maxi dress is a must have this season with its sexy side slit and gorgeous paisley print. For a flawless finish team this with our delicate flower necklace by Louche. The white shade will really pop and come into its own when contrasted against a navy blue backdrop.   


Accessorises

Not only does the flower crown rule supreme for wedding season, it has inspired flower clusters in the form of  anklets now for those Bohemia brides amongst us. Another cool accessory to be seen for Spring are huge blooming baskets on bicycles! When the sun is shining get riding! Accessorising your bicycle with these decorative flower features creates a uber-cool vintage look. Go on...get those bikes out of the shed!

Full On Flapper Vs A Glint of Gatsby

We just can't get enough of flapper fashion so thought we'd share with you some cool styling tips and ideas to really get into the swing of things when it comes to 1920s style! It's always fun to really go all out and mimic the authentic art deco look but you can create the same glamour and elegance by simply popping on a tassel necklace or coveting geometric shaped accessories.  


Its fun to experiment and push the boundaries with your look but here we have simply pepped up a low key, stylish evening outfit with some glamorous accessories. The trick here is to choose one dramatic statement piece like the chevron clutch and choose items that compliment it. You can create a 20s look without going over the top and it looks great to mix  some Gatsby glamour with a modern contemporary outfit.



Here we have toyed with the idea of mixing old and new by recreating a flapper girl look with this stunning pink and white dress but have selected on trend colours and silhouettes. The bright fuchsia and orange hue bring this dress up to date, along with its figure hugging fit but the textures, crystals and embellishments reflect the Hollywood glamour of the 1920s.

Second Hand Style Covered



Buying something vintage means buying something pre-loved! It's totally unique and you have that reassurance that no one else will be wearing the same identikit outfit to you. After all we've all been there when you think you've picked out something really different, which reflects your fun sense of style and embodies you as a person...only to find the same one being worn by your best mate! Which incidentally means you can never wear it again. Well we've put together a list of true vintage beauties that are versatile, extremely wearable today and absolutely gorgeous to help you establish your own individual look!


Just look at this frankly stunning, original 1960s shift dress from the fabulous Christian Dior! This mini mod dress really packs a punch with its current apple green shade and flattering figure hugging fit! 

These 1970s tribal clip earrings really rock a super cool hippy chic vibe that will jazz up any outfit and create the ultimate boho statement. Team with leather or denim to keep it current and contrasting!


This 1970s black maxi dress really ticks all the buttons with its  off the shoulder sleeves, ruched bodice and fringe detailing.

Flattering Retro Shapes to Suit Your Body Type



It's always useful to get a helping hand when it comes to finding a dress that actually suits our body type... we need all the help we can get! That is why we have put together this handy little cheat sheet to help you suss out the best style for YOU. 
We believe there is a vintage style or shape to suit everyone, from the sassy 60s 
shift to the classic 1950s wiggle!



The Rectangle:


A rectangle body shape can be characterised by a straight up and down figure with little waist definition. With a slender figure like this, rectangles can get away with a sultry wiggle or wrap likes this Callie Bright Birdie Jersey Dress which will nip you in slightly at the waist and gives you a gentle curve.


The Pear:


A pear body type can be defined by wearing a larger size on your bottom half than on your top half. You are likely to have a smaller bust and fuller thighs or hips. The trick with finding something to suit a pear is to find something which accentuates your awesome waistline like a flared prom or A-line! Go for detail on top like this Embellished Prom Dress has.



The Apple:


A apple body type is characterised with a fuller figure around the middle, large bust and rounder shoulder line.  Opt for drop waists as they will narrow down at the hips and therefore make your torso longer and leaner like this Zelda Flapper Dress will. The good news is that most apple have great legs so show them off in either a stunning shift or A line mini dress!


The Hourglass:


Hour glass figures can be defined by a small waist, full bust and full thighs. Lucky you!  Go for something that really shows off your beautiful curves and make like Marilyn with a 1950s wiggle like French Connection Stable Dress or charming wrap skirt.



The Inverted Triangle:


An inverted triangle body can be described as having a bottom half smaller than your top half, where there is little definition between thighs and hips.  The trick here is to keep all features and details on the lower half of your body to balance out the top. Go for a pretty prom style like this Dreamy Deco Dress as you can afford to make the most of  your titchy bottom half!
