Big & Bold Marni

After collaborations with powerhouses such as Versace, Karl Lagerfield, Stella McCartney and Lanvin, H&M have yet again announced an amazing collaboration with Italian Label Marni! On 8th March 2012 Marni will be launching a range of womenswear, menswear and accessories in over 260 H&M shops! Queue the hoards of bargain hunters! After queuing for hours last week to grab myself a piece of the Versace action, I will be braving the cold again for Marni’s colourful pattern clashing. Their trademark tribal prints and bright graphics remind me of my love of bold 1960’s prints and their oversized midi designs encapsulate all my favourite vintage styles with a sharp modern twist.

Style Muse

It’s time for another style inspiration post. Chloe Sevigny, Hollywood Actress, Model, Fashion Designer and all round eclectic style queen. She nearly makes me want to revert back to my natural blonde locks....but maybe I need the LA tan first!

Bow tie + suspenders + red lippy = accessory perfection

Acid wash denim jacket on the red carpet? It has to be done!

Versace I own you

Well it turns out I’m a sucker for a bargain. My legs are aching and toes and fingers are frozen but I have successfully grabbed myself 3 pieces of Versace for a measly £160! After braving the cold to queue outside H&M for a glimpse of the much anticipated Versace collection I am now the proud owner of these beauties! What did I think of the collection? Well I wasn’t impressed by the collections lurid pinks, oranges and greens. I'm all for standing out from the crowd but resembling a full on flamingo is a step too far! But, I completely feel in love the with luxurious silky darks and industrial studded twists. All a perfect fit with my 80’s gold Moschino belt!

So a post about Alexa Chung isn’t exactly groundbreaking, there are probably thousands of bloggers out there sending her exactly the same love. But she really is an inspiration for laid back vintage style. Alexa loves vintage and at vintagesayyeah we love Alexa. She wears denim cut offs and breton stripes just as well as she wears vintage shift dresses and evening-wear. A current style icon and great inspiration for all our shoppers! 

My favourite Alexa style...
