Vintage Lady Melbourne

In a recent post remembering why I started Lady Melbourne, I got to thinking about some of my very early blog posts on fashion and style. I cringe now when I look back at some of the pictures – I’m sure if you looked back at what you wore 10 years ago you might not be impressed with your sartorial choices!

There is definitely a reoccurring theme, however, and in the main part for me, it’s mixing vintage clothing with designer pieces. And a tonne of accessories. A roadmap if you like for how I dress and shop for clothes.

Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak. Rachel Zoe

Is there a roadmap for how you like to dress? I was thinking of Margaret Zhang of Shine By Three fame and her distinct style. It’s not really my jam, but you can see over the years how she’s been true to her masculine/feminine deconstructed look. These days she wears head to toe designer, but her style was the same even way back when she was wearing high street brands.

So in calling this blog post Vintage Lady Melbourne, I’m giving a nod to the literal and sartorial way of my wardrobe. The day you see me in active wear, you know something’s gone awry 😉
