HtCC: GiGi Vintage

Let me tell you a secret.

I hate vintage shopping.

I’m not really a fan of most kinds of clothes shopping to be honest, with snotty shop assistants implying you can’t afford a £10 top so why the hell are you cluttering up their shop with your unsightly presence (Is that just me then? Oh.) or the depressing situation with sizing (how am I a 12 in some shops, and a 16 in others?!) but vintage shopping just sends the fear into me. I feel so out of place when I go in to browse, I end up walking out again most of the time.

Another problem with vintage shopping is that a show can sometimes appear to be more of a jumble sale at the village hall than a collection of carefully chosen items (there’s a vintage shop on Park Street in Bristol that is just rails and rails of STUFF. Not ideal if you’re even a little claustrophobic!)

Which is why I was happy to find GiGi Vintage. Cute items, nicely styled, and prices that aren’t too crazy – so they’re closer to Topshop than Primark, but unlike either of those two shops, these pieces have lasted longer – when was the last time that you bought something from a high street store thats lasted more than 5 years?!

Here’s a few of my favourite things, but go on the site, theres so much more!

It’s All Navy” is a cute high waisted skirt which at the time of me looking was reduced down from £22 to £8. Bargain!

The “Leather Spinster” high waisted leather skirt (£45) is cute, although I can probably see someone else wearing this than me!

You usually can’t go wrong with a Laura Ashley dress (£38), especially with floral and bows all over!

I Know You ‘Sea’ Me“(£35) is a gorgeous mini dress which I’m so tempted by.

Anthing nautical is going to catch my eye which is why I liked the “Stripe It Rich” (£30)

I’m not really a playsuit kind of person, but the “Denim Diva” (£40) is quite tempting!
