This is the space where new items listing on Shrimpton Couture will be posted within moments of going live on www.shrimptoncouture.com.
Occasionally I will post images that I find and love.
What you see here helps explains how I choose vintage for my shop Shrimpton Couture, but at the same time it probably does not really explain it at all.
This space mixes vintage, style, interiors, clients, shoes, jewels and celebrities, with a drop of decadence and dash of yearning for days gone by.
Images of the past and the present collide and overlap to form this little peak into all the odds & ends of my crazy vintage filled life.

change the hat and hairstyle and the heel of the shoe - take away the gloves and have her stand a little less “posed” and voila - this 60 year old outfit is so NOW. And I knw I do not even have to point out that the Chanel bag is the exact same as ones you can go and buy now!
