Headlock Vintage

Wednesday, 22 August 2018


Lets talk about vintage.
When I was sixteen heading up to college I really started to experiment with the clothing I wore and it was all thanks to the blogs I read. I was obsessed with DIY blogs, vintage fashion bloggers on lookbook and I also adored the idea of American thrifting. I was obsessed with old Polaroid cameras, car boot sales and I had a boyfriend who scared my passions about second hand shopping. We loved going on adventures to see what bargains we could find and I'll always look back and think it was probably one of the best memories I have as a teenager. It was awesome to have someone who was growing at the same pace with the same interests, but sadly he was a prick and left my life as disastrous as he'd came. Anway, I carried on my love for vintage and over the years I've ventured more into high street fashion and alternative fashion, but thrifting will always have a special place in my heart!

Headlock vintage so kindly got in contact with me to style some pieces from their store and the nostalgia of vintage clothing came back to me!


Since starting my blog back in 2015 I always  branded myself as a vintage alternative fashion blogger, returning to a darker sense of fashion because it's always been my comfort zone. I love gothic fashion and with Autumn not even two weeks away...I'm excited to be in my zone and get my mojo back. When looking for vintage pieces I always tend to go for dresses, harley-Davidson tees, jumpers and mom jeans, but I never thought to challenge myself to sports wear. This year I started getting back into fitness and bought myself some sports brands like Nike,  etc, something I've never really done before. I really like Adidas and it was the only brand I tended to sway to when we used to do sports activities at school, so when I saw this lovely green Adidas t-shirt* I thought it'd be fun to add something to my wardrobe that was 'out of the box' for my personal style. 

I love the colour! I thought I'd be stumped on how to style it but so far it's given my looks a little edge, especially when styling it with my alternative items like this faux leather skirt. It's no sports luxe, but I love how modern this look is styled seeing as I love to look like I've walked out of the 70's sometimes.

It's always good to challenge yourself sometimes when you feel like you're stuck in a styling rut and vintage clothing is amazing to help you with cheaper options. When rustling through vintage stores/charity shops I find I always go for items I usually wouldn't because who's it going to hurt for a couple of quid? If the dress doesn't look good oh well, the money went to a good cause and I can just give it back to another charity shop or try my hand at DIY to turn it into something else! 


Until next time guys,

  1. The boyfriend you mentioned in the first paragraph who left was clearly not right mentally (other than sharing your second hand shopping passion). I can't imagine any sane person bringing themselves to leave you. You are gorgeous, intelligent, have a fascinating personality (I love your YouTube videos and Tweets on Twitter) and you have wonderful fashion taste.
    I love your hair, eye-makeup, and perfectly applied lipstick. You look extremely pretty, and look fabulous rocking that Primark black faux mini-skirt and green Adidas T-shirt with the white trainers. I love all of your outfit photos.

    P.S.: I also loved seeng both this outfit and the Sunflower print American Apparel miniskirt paired with the Yellow Puma T-shirt in your video titled: Headlock Vintage Summer Lookbook | HeartShapedBones - YouTube
