It’s all cool at art school

This is the gorgeous Rebecca Merrill, an art student from Stoke Newington. Rebecca’s mastered vintage dressing to perfection, combining unique pieces to create an eclectic and playful look. She wears an Orthodox Jewish hat from the 50’s bought from a charity shop, 1940’s glasses from a charity shop, a 70’s riding jacket, a trade union mechanics dress from the 50’s, boots from Peacocks, a scarf from a charity shop and a 60’s bag bought from a charity shop.



Blast from the past

There was a whole host of retro looks on show at Field Day. From 40’s style gingham dresses, to dapper 50’s gents, to 70’s flares, every decade from the 20th century made an appearance.

Rebecca (above) wears a vintage dress, head scarf from a charity shop, sunglasses and denim jacket from Ebay and vintage boots.

I’ve bumped into Landy twice now, and each time she looks darn fantastic. For this outfit she’s added cute little touches with her socks and sandals, vintage camera case and striped skirt. She wears coat and cardigan from ASOS, vintage skirt from Brick Lane, shirt from Emmaus charity shop in France, shoes by Lotta from Stockholm, socks from Topshop, bag from Copenhagen and a Casio watch. Check out her blog Urban Gazette to see her beautiful street photography. 

Here Landy wears Uniqlo jeans and the rest of her outfit is vintage.



Carolin looks adorable in her Jackie O-esque candy coat. She wears skirt from Beyond Retro, shirt from Miss Selfridge, vintage polka dot shirt (worn underneath other shirt), coat from Pop Boutique, vintage gloves, bag from Absolute Vintage, vintage hat and shoes from Absolute Vintage.

Moa and Roxane do minimal

Hej Matilda!

Matilda’s bold, playful outfit oozes fun and wit. I just love it! Her look is a real nod to the 80’s with the high waisted, bleached denim jeans, shiny bomber and hair scrunchie. The over sized, layered pieces are worn with confidence and a strong dash of youthful spirit that very few people could pull off. Go girl!

Matilda wears all vintage with American Apparel socks and Nike trainers.


Rebecka has thrift store chic down to a T. Her cool, preppy style is made up of a vintage jacket, skirt, shirt and bag, American Apparel socks and Dinsko boots.


Nicole Walker

I’ve just returned from a trip to Stockholm and boy, do the Scandinavians know how to dress! Swedish style is effortlessly cool, contemporary and understated. Producing brands such as Acne, Cos and of course, H&M, it’s clear that Sweden is a hotbed of cutting-edge fashion. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t on my side – I only had one dry day for taking photos! But it was easy to find some fantastic looks on the streets.

Keep posted for more Stockholm street style over the next few days…

Nicole is a stylist. She wears jacket, skirt and shirt by Acne, bag and shoes by Comme Des Garcons and a vintage beret.

Victor wears all vintage with trainers by Dinsko and Outlet gloves.

Tanya & Tanya

Tanya and Tanya certainly know how to rock a head scarf, furry gilet and converse. These two buddies ooze swagger and style, mixing vintage pieces with textures and COLOUR!

Tanya Lacey (above) is a singer/songwriter and recently co-wrote “T.H.E” (The Hardest Ever) with, JLo and Jagger. Watch out for her debut album coming out later this year, released by Sony/RCA. She wears a jacket by Pinkyotto from Williamsburg (my favourite place in NY!) furry gilet from Notting Hill, t-shirt from Forever 21, vintage headscarf, leggings from ASOS and Converse trainers.

Tanya (below) is a student and works pink panther chic in her jacket from Topshop, jeans from Topshop, furry gilet from Heba, pink top from Spitalfields and Converse trainers. ♥ it!

Carnaby Street colours with Natasha


It was a lovely surprise to bump into Natasha on Carnaby Street. She’s an old friend from work who I haven’t seen for years! Natasha’s a stylist and as you can see, it comes naturally to her. So of course, I had to take some photos of her! She wears a vintage jacket, leopard print t-shirt from Primark, lace red top from Topshop, trousers by Provider, shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo, Moschino bag and Rolex watch.
