All About Brick Vintage

So today's post is a collaboration with Brick Vintage who sell 1950's-1980's vintage clothes  and accessories for both men and women. As I have parents who have grown up throughout those era's and also grown up with the music from then, I have picked up a love for the music and some of the fashion from then too - especially the 1960's-1970's fashion.

I was very surprised and excited when I found out that Brick Vintage wanted to do a collaboration with me. Especially considering I hadn't really properly started to write about fashion on my blog at the time.

They gave me a spending limit and I was looking for a vintage denim jacket or maybe coat but because I'm plus size, I was struggling to find something that would look right on me and also in my size. Obviously because it's vintage, it doesn't mean you're going to get what you want all the time. So in the end I opted for a 1970's tan coloured bag* which I really do like. It is quite big and a little bulkier than I was expecting but it's definitely grown on me now. I think it would be great to use as an overnight bag or something along those lines. I don't really like to use tiny bags/huge bags on an everyday basis. 

Obviously as it's from the 1970's it's got a few little scuffs on it but I think that kind of adds to charm of the fact that it's a bag from that era and that it's probably had quite a few lives by now. But if that's something that would bother you, then you can add your own personal touch to the clothing or accessories you buy and customise it.

I like that the style of colour of the bag I chose goes well with a lot of different clothing I own and it's also really comfortable to wear.

If you're a lover of vintage clothing, then I'd definitely recommend you checking out the website here. They sell a range of clothing, bags and shoes and they are a lot more affordable than other vintage websites I've seen. They also sell clothes/accessories by known brands too.

Brick Vintage have also kindly given me a discount code to share which is: "2017" to get 10% off your first order! Click here to pop over to their website.
