I’ve always been a magpie for vintage pieces, charity store finds and eBay bargains. Don’t get me wrong I love hitting the shops on the high street, but I find that if I have a top then 10 other people have the same one too. I love the sense of achievement when I’ve found something that I can’t source in stores, or that I’ve bagged for a ridiculously low price. Lately, with buying the house I just haven’t had a moment to use my savvy shopping skills and then Trendlistr came on my radar.
Trendlistr is an online boutique that stocks a vast selection of vintage clothing with contemporary vibes from a range of carefully selected sellers. Since trends seem to always come back round, you’re bound to find something among the 1000 items that suit your style and budget.
After searching through the listings I came across this gorgeous Laura Ashley blouse and as soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be mine. One of the reasons I prefer vintage clothing is because the tailoring is far more superior than the fast-fashion we have today. Plus, since trends go full-circle, there’s always items that complement my wardrobe today.
Embroidery is huge right now, so I knew this would be bang-on-trend, but completely different to anything that anyone else had. The material is a lightweight cotton, perfect for during the summer, and I can just tell that it’s not going to wash funny unlike items I have from Primark.
Although it’s an eight I did find it to be oversized, so I rolled up the sleeves and tucked it into my denim jeans. I felt this gave it a very casual but girly look, which I love for during the day. I paired this with my pink loafers to make the colour pop and finished it off with a gorgeous bag that I sourced from a vintage market in Tynemouth.
What are you thoughts on vintage clothes? What do you think of my blouse? Have you been on Trendlistr before?

I was given this blouse in exchange for a review. My words are 100% honest and my own, and I would happily purchase something using my own money from this site.
