When possible I like to spend a bit of time scouring the net for good online vintage sites and this one is a gem!
I decided that if location wont allow me to be able to casually browse the famous Portobello Market on a Sunday morning with a bagel and a coffee (more quick sandwich and the town centre) then a little bit more effort is required to find vintage goodies.
This “virtual fashion Market” sells distinctive and individual clothes at very reasonable prices (hurrah!) It also offers accessories and jewellery.
In addition to the cyber stalls there is a section called “Lets Trade”. This is where you can haggle a bargain with an online portobello trader. If your offer is accepted you can add the item to your bag like a normal purchase.
This sheer, black draped jacket is from this site and its quite a one off.
Worn with skinny jeans its a real “Kate Moss gets pie eyed at Glastonbury” outfit. Fabulous. I have worn it to a festival but thankfully didn’t meet any Jamie Hince look a likes.
