The lovely Vix has an excellent blog called Vintage Vixen. Vix is an absolute inspiration as a person and for anyone trying to save money. She buys all her clothes from jumble sales, car boots, charity shops and Ebay. Vix has an amazing sense of style and I don't know anyone with a keener eye for a bargain. Quite often she'll buy a dress for 20p and look totally fabulous in it. I love her tales of going to the jumble full of Black Country grannies with sharp elbows.
This is what Vix says about herself on her blog "I'm Vix, a jumble sale-ing, car-booting, charity shopping, hedonistic hippy chick in love with life, India and vintage clothes. Dressing is an adventure, never a chore. I don't follow fashion and I don't care if I look ridiculous, as long as I don't blend in with the crowd. A day without dressing up is a day wasted." My thoughts exactly!
It doesn't just extend to clothes - Vix has furnished her entire house with things she's found, recycled or made herself. She could certainly give Kirsty Allsop a run for her money. Vix should do a show! I never fail to be impressed by her creativity.
Vix rocking the hippy chick look. She spends her summer at festivals and has long holidays in Goa in the winter. Sounds perfect to me.
I love the sign at the front door of their lovely Georgian house
Here's Vix in her business-like look
This Jean Varon dress is beautiful, as are the patchwork curtains she made herself
Another amazing dress
I love this Sixties crimplene number
Yet another gorgeous maxi dress
Someone who's never afraid of colour
This look is one of my favourites. Behind is their camper van Gilbert.
