Lucy in Disguise

For those of you who watched the Riches to Rags programme which followed the trials and tribulations of Lily Allen and her sister Sarah setting up a vintage clothing shop in Covent Garden, this is the post for you. As you may (or may not) know, the programme really highlighted the realism of establishing a new shopping outlet in central London, and certainly showed how much hard work and determination is required in order to succeed. Anyway, the programme ended with the opening of the Lucy in Disguise vintage boutique in Covent Garden earlier this year. Sadly, I haven't actually managed to make a visit to the actual shop yet but did sign up to their newsletter online recently, so was very excited to receive an email a few days ago to be informed that a selection of items from the Lucy in Disguise Boutique are now available at their online shop. Much to my delight I clicked on the link to take a look and was overwhelmed by the eclectic mix of beautiful vintage inspired designs. The collection consists of everything from eye-catching floral 70's inspired shirt dresses to a 20's inspired Lace embellished flapper dress.

If you into your vintage clothes and like to stand out from the crowd, this website is most definitely for you. It offers beautifully crafted unique items at surprisingly reasonable prices. Slightly inflated from your standard high street outlet but certainly not un-affordable. Most of the items are definitely head-turners and certainly investment purchases that you will not regret buying. A true testament to how great the collection really is, is that certain items are already sold out! I urge you to take a look a grab them before its too late!

A few of my favourites in the collection are:

A 40's style tuille dress with sequinned body
40's Tulle dress with sequined bodice
A 70's floral print dress with diamante straps

A 50's silk firework print dress
