Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely freakin' adore anything and everything vintage, and I'm forever scouring local vintage and charity shops for the best homeware and clothing finds. This is why I was so excited when I was contacted to review and style the items I received from my cute little SBP vintage box.
|Bag, belt and necklace - Style By Portobello|
Boots - Dr Martens
Socks - Topshop
Dress - Miss Selfridge
Hat - Asos
Lilac Lipstick - Make Up Revolution
So, how would a vintage subscription box work, exactly? Well, after signing up to their website here - stylebyportobello.com you tell the amazing stylists what your personal style is so they can individually hand pick you the best stuff they discover at Portobello. Perfect if you don't have the time or patients to rummage through endless amounts of vintage goodies yourself, right?
After this, you'll receive three items in your box which will be either jewellery, bags, belts, and/or scarves. In my magical box, I received a little coral beaded necklace, a brown leather belt and the cutest floral tapestry bag you'll ever see. (How did they know I was obsessed with tapestry?! Those stylists are gooooooood!) (See images below)
The best thing about it? You receive brand new (sort of, haha) vintage accessories to jazz up any outfit. Check out how I rocked up a simple little black slip dress with just a few of my accessories!
How bloomin' amazing is the Make Up Revolution Velvet Lip Lacquer? It's very similar to Lime Crimes Velvetines, but only £3! And surely for that price they can't work, right? Wrong, they are incredible and something that will be in my fave list for a very long time I think! I've brought three this week, and I'm already lusting for more colours...
If you've subscribed to Style By Portobello, or any other similar subscription box, let me know! I think they're such a cool idea, I'm having to resist signing up to them all!I hope you enjoyed this post, don't forget to follow me and SBP on our social media pages, such as Instagram and Twitter by searching @StephLeaMead and @StyleByPortobello and I'll see you guys on my next post!
Have a really lovely week, heres to hoping the weather stays nice so more fun times in the sun can be had!
