Where to start, well I love finding something different. I will explore uncharted vintage and thrift shops for something that seems to have it’s own personality. As is often the case with this type of style collecting it is often not my size and often would benefit from a little upgrade. And so the story goes, I started to modify and tweek what I was finding until it became part of the shopping process. I was no longer looking for finished pieces, I started looking for a base to work from. As a result I absolutely adore playing with all manner of craft materials and deconstructing items to create something unique.
Vintage is great because it’s vast and working current trends into a vintage piece is not sacrilege it’s fun. DIY style is all about finding what works and not being too precious, styling is fun and making and curating outfits is one of the little pleasure in lifes.
