Story behind my vintage shop...
I'm Czech girl who moved to London when I was 24 years old.
I immediately fell in love with that city, I loved that buzz and those fashion shops everywhere!
Very soon clothes & accessories became my passion - I liked browsing shopping malls & putting outfits together for myself to wear to all these endless different occasions in such cosmopolitan city.
I had a very good run wearing designer clothes from Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Armani to Roberto Cavalli.
Few years later however, me and my partner Paul were missing nature and we moved to countryside in England - with that our fashion has changed more for tweed jackets, Barbour & Wellingtons rubber boots :)
We also love to travel and we have purchased different types of outdoor clothes - some for adventurous trip to Patagonia and completely different ones to safari in Namibia....
I knew I will always prefer to be away from the busy city and high heels so I sold my wardrobe for the first time.....and I enjoy it because I also like photography and capturing clothes on my mannequin, finding the right background and light is just a hobby of mine too.
And now I have another set for sale after we moved to Portugal. When we unpacked, we both realised how much we changed our sizes last couple of years due to recently quitting smoking with addition to Covid 19 & lockdowns and working from home....oh dear!!!!!
After all this is sustainable way for fashion - re-use the clothes!!!
It's satisfying feeling to know that our clothes, shoes & handbags will go on in a new home and someone else will enjoy wearing them...., we shouldn't be throwing things away and buying new ones.
I'm all for swapping, donating, reusing, recycling and reselling in this world.
All these clothes, shoes and accessories were purchased and worn by us only. We always looked well after them. They are good quality, all freshly washed & ironed and dry-cleaned where necessary.
