2015 is coming to a close! That little sentence will cause total relief to some and maybe give others the luxury of a celebratory cheer. But putting whether you’ve had a good or bad 2015 aside, I thought I’d take stock of some of my favourite and most popular Old is Now Vintage blog posts of 2015!
First off has to be my hugely popular blog post on Vintage Treasures; a cute shop in Basingstoke that brings some much needed vintage and retro looks to the town! Victoria is the lady behind VJ Vintage, so was already established as a reliable vintage advocate in the area. If you have had the pleasure of meeting Victoria or her equally lovely mother Angie then you will know that a visit to Vintage Treasures is a treat, as they are always great for a chat. If you are looking for vintage in Basingstoke, then this blog post is a great place to start. I’m just sad that having moved I don’t have the opportunity to visit as much as I would like.
From Basingstoke to Barcelona! I am totally besotted with Barcelona and to move to Cataluña would be a dream come true. If you are heading to this exciting city then this is a great mini guide that will help you blitz the vintage shops. I actually managed to go around all the shops featured in a day, with much needed beach and ice cream rests. In all honestly whether you are interested in vintage or not, Barcelona is the city for you 😉 It really does have everything from shopping to nightlife to culture… and not forgetting THAT FOOD!
I have to mention my Violets in May Wrap Dress blog post. Not only is Lola Diamond, the mastermind behind the brand lovely; but I also had the chance to interview her in 2015 for Vintage Life magazine. I love that my passion for writing means I can type away on both my blog Old is Now Vintage, as well as have the opportunity to work with prestigious magazines. That being said, I have a few Violets In May items in my wardrobe now and my wrap dress is definitely my favourite so it has to get a mention.
I had such a frickin good time at Screamin Festival this year, that I have to include my post for first timers. The festival attracts a really fun and friendly crowd, as well as very talented musicians… oh and it’s in Spain so it was always going to be a winner with me! This blog post was really interesting for me as I got to find out a little bit more about the festival before I went myself. A must read if you are thinking about going.
Last, but not least is my blog post for Pinup In The Park. It was great to meet so many pinup enthusiasts from the 40s and 50s meet up Facebook group, as well as those I’ve been lusting over on Instagram 😉 Give it a read if you are looking for outfit inspiration, as there was plenty to go around. Can’t wait for the next one, thanks again to the British Belles for organising the day – it was a huge success.
So that’s the Old is Now Vintage 2015 round up… Wishing all my readers a happy 2016!
