It is Monday, the most coffee fuelled day of the week, but for our friends across the water, today is National Yorkshire Pudding Day!

What a day to celebrate! At Vintage Styler we want to join in the celebration of our great British dish and share this smile provoking site – Clutch Bags Replaced with Yorkshire Puddings. We send big love to some of our favourite bloggers and fashion icons with this Monday pick-me-up.   We have to say we think these ladies could definitely pull off a Yorkshire pudding clutch bag , especially Lauren Pope and Charissa Rae.

In the following gallery you can have some fun looking at our favourite picks, and if that’s not enough for you, just take a look at Clutch Bags Replaced with Yorkshire Puddings for some more of them.

How to create a modern vintage outfit look inspired by 50′s fashion

Full Skirts and Feminine Shapes

The post-war era gave way to some of the most flattering silhouettes of the past century. Once textile factories and fashion houses re-opened, the re-discovery of haute-couture led to the rise of Christian Dior and the classic shape created by the brand that is now synonymous of the 1950′s. Feminine shapes, nipped in waists, soft rounded shoulders and flattering necklines meant that the boxy, masculine look of war-time uniform was well and truly gone.  This classic shape is one of the most flattering and easiest of looks to pull off no matter what your body shape. We adore this full skirted silhouette brought up to date with a metallic gold midi skirt by Msgm and silky tee by Reiss. Finish with the VS Geneva earrings inspired by 1950′s jewellery and a pair of sky high courts with an ankle strap for an extra nod to the 50′s. This look can be worn with a box clutch or a small tote like this one by Stella McCartney for a more 1950′s feel.

Fashion at Royal Ascot 2014

Race days are the perfect occasion to splash out on a new outfit and get dressed up for the day. This week at Royal Ascot has seen thousands of ladies do just that! The Ascot dress code is much more strict than many other racecourses, asking ladies to wear knee-length or longer skirts or dresses, no thin shoulder straps, and a recent controversial ban on certain types of fascinators. We love this vintage dress code for Ascot from the 1920′s, it’s lovely that they have kept the tradition alive for such a long time! Continue Reading…

It’s less than one week until all eyes descend on a muddy field (or two) in Somerset, as over 175,000 music lovers don their wellies and embrace their love for mud, cider and glamping…that’s right its Glastonbury 2014!

As the number, profile and reputation of UK Festivals grow, so too do the requirements to make sure you keep up with the fashion glitterati.  Gone are the days when you could simply escape to the country, shove a few old clothes in a bag and grab the old faithful tent (and its moth holes) – today Festivals mean Fashion!!

Brides and their Fathers – A tribute to all the Dad’s for Father’s Day

June 15, 2014

It’s a running joke at VS HQ that I have a “Dad switch”. You can pretty much guarantee that I’ll melt into a tearful mess at the sight of a bride and her father or during the speeches, something the girls here at VS find hilarious! There’s something about the father-daughter bond that just gets me every time, especially on a wedding day which is already such an emotional occasion.

We’ve collected some tear-jerking images of brides and their Dads as a little tribute to all the Dads this Father’s Day. Thank you so much to 2 utterly fabulous North West photographers for their contributions to this post, Victoria Hamilton and Yana Photography, I can’t recommend these ladies highly enough!

Anyway, enjoy, and don’t be afraid to shed a tear or two…I have! Amy x Continue Reading…
