I was reading through one of my regular reads, Second Skin, and she was saying that, while in New York, she didn’t really feel the shopping buzz, because looking through racks of the same items can’t possibly hold the same allure for her as rifling through vintage clothing racks where you can find one-of-a-kind pieces.

And, despite my long flirtations with high street – just yesterday I managed to blow over €100 in Penneys, despite the fact that everything in there is ridiculously cheap and some people seem hard put to add up to €50, and I did buy a lovely dark printed floral dress in A|Wear a few days ago – there is something intensely satisfying about finding decent vintage clothing.

So, when I saw that this vintage store, Little Ramonas, had put together a really brilliant lookbook for their new season collection, I had to post on it. If nothing else, it’s made it so all I want to do in life is wear sequins in the hot Miami sun. The bad part is that there is only one of each piece, so most items are sold out at this stage, but for aesthetic purposes only:

Oh – and I was tipped off to this by Fashion Canvas, worth a click over.
