Outfit Post | The Vintage Set


One of the many reasons I love Twitter is for the avenue’s it opens; the possibilities of discovering new people/places are endless. So I was super-duper happy when Charlotte from The Vintage Set sent me a little tweet, telling me to check out her shop. And I am so glad I did, it’s uh-mazin’ (seriously go look, NOW). We got chat-a-lattin and it wasn’t long before I’d made my first purchase…

It arrived in absolutely no time at all, and how utterly beautiful is the packaging? I was so impressed :). As you may have guessed from previous posts, I am a sucker for anything vintage and I literally squealed when I saw this ‘unidays leather satchel bag’….

Hat: Topshop, Top: Vintage, Skirt: Zara, Shoes: F-Troupe, Belt: Primark




Waaa it’s so beautiful it makes me want to cry, haha. It’s the perfect size to fit all my clutter in and I love the suede badge embroidered on to the front, it makes me feel like I’m off to Hogwarts! 

The Vintage Set is a new little company on the big wide web specialising in 1920-1980’s vintage garments. I found it so refreshing looking through their site; instead of being swamped with pages of clothes, there are only a few high quality vintage items to choose from in each section. Quality over quantity is something I really love, especially when the prices are so affordable too. With a little bit of discount thrown my way, I picked my little satchel up for only £17 (inc. p&p). And for a pristine leather bag, I think that’s pretty awesome. All the items on the site are marked up A, B or C, A being mint condition to C where the product has noticeable wear, so you know what you’re purchasing from the offset. Ranging from a Camo army jacket to floral midi-skirts there really is something for everyone. Not only are the pieces fantastic so is the customer service; Charlotte was such a joy to chat to and replied to any queries I had almost immediately.

I think it’s so special when you find a really lovely company, and I just couldn’t wait to shout from the roof tops about it to you wonderful lot.

What do you think of the bag? It’s my new favourite.
