If you’re looking to start shopping more sustainably, vintage and secondhand fashion is the perfect place to start.

Not only is it environmentally friendly and a lovely way to give beautiful clothes a second life, but each garment comes with an exciting history and a story of a life well-lived before you found it.

Chosen well, vintage and pre-loved pieces can be great investments that last a lifetime too. Think second hand Gucci handbags, for example.

As a vintage lover myself however, I know how time consuming it can be to scour through the rails looking for the best pieces. It takes patience and dedication.

Luckily many vintage businesses have moved online due to the pandemic, so the pick of vintage you can buy from home is now better than ever. You can now shop from the vintage capitals of the UK, such as Brighton, Margate, Bristol and London from the comfort of your sofa.

Every month, we bring you the best vintage pieces on sale now, right here – so if you’re keen to see more retro fashion, bookmark this page.

This month, I’ve found so much good stuff. From spring dresses perfect for the change in season, to pre-loved Gucci mules, I’m so excited to show you these.

Here’s my April edit.
