China teapots and colourful cupcakes, old lace and big pearls, floral designs and wooden signs, tea cosies and fur shrugs, birdcage veils and retro hairstyles. What is it about that wonderful, charming vintage look that we all love so much?

Vintage teacup and flowers

I’m not writing this article because I have an answer to that question – it’s more of a rhetorical one. It’s just a fact we do love it. Rose garlands and pink lipstick, pillbox hats and wooden clothes pegs. Vintage clothes range from elegant 1930’s bias-cut dresses and 1940’s utility wear, to playful 1950’s rock’n’roll frocks, cute 1960’s mini dresses, hippy 1970’s maxis to loud 1980’s baggy jumpers – whatever form it takes – we just want more!

So as part of Arabella Bridal’s blog, I’ve decided to keep you up to date with vintage bargains that I come across, vintage suppliers that I find, vintage venues of all sorts for you to visit and I’ll start it with this vintage French bolero. Can’t you just imagine Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn wearing this cute little number? And how fabulous would it look over your wedding dress on that chilly spring evening as you chat to your guests at your new husband’s side…

The faux fur bolero is one of our Preloved Items at only £45 – grab it now before it’s gone! And how about a little vintage floral clutch bag to go with it? Another of our preloved items at only £15 – bargain!
