Hey lovelies! I have another giveaway for you! :) Get to know the LuLuCherie etsy shop. It's an ah-some shop based in the UK that is filled with fabulous vintage finds collected from some of the best flea markets in the world.
Here's a little Q&A w/ the owner of the shop:
1,) Tell us a little about the LuLuCherie shop.
I love fashion, shopping and vintage clothing, and it all started off when I went to vintage markets to hand select a few key pieces and started to style it myself and listed it online. It grew from there, and I started to include a more variety of things on my shop; such as hand-made jewelery and accessories.
2.) What is your absolute fave style?
Of course I love vintage clothing. It's so fun as you never know what you will end up with when you go to vintage thrift stores. Every piece is unique so you have to dig around hard; it's almost like treasure hunting!
3.) You also have a blog, LuLuCherieblog.blogspot.com. What kind of stuff can we find when we visit your blog?
On my LuLuCherieblog.blogspot.com it is mainly about fashion, and key images that interests me. It is just a little space for me to keep my inspiration, where I can share with others. I will also try and include some of my daily outfits.
4.) How long have you been blogging, and how long have you had your online shop?
I only just started blogging in March 2010, so I'm still pretty new. My webshop only a couple of months older than my blog.
5.) What inspires you?
The diverse range of cultures I come across when I visit different places and countries. I love meeting new people, and learning about their cultural background and history really inspire me and gives me a deeper insight on not just fashion itself.
6.) What are your top three fave designers?
Hussein Chalayan - Not very wearable, but I love his work. He cleverly combines fashion with technology: a true fashion genius and very inspirational to me.
Alexander McQueen - Another fashion genius. Love his work and runway shows. The fashion industry has lost a really great designer.
Alexander Wang - I love his wearable pieces, his pieces tends to have a rock edge to it.
7.) What is your fave trend of the moment?
At the moment I'm really into the 70s; big round woodstock sunnies, with flared lace trousers, big wide palazzo pants. To sum it up it will be the hippy bohemian look.
8.) What is your fave item in your shop at the moment?
The "Slave web chain bracelet ring" is one of my favourites from my shop. It is hand-made by me. The design really goes well with many stuff.
9.) You mention in your etsy profile that your clothing collection comes from your visits to vintage markets. Out of all the markets you've been to, which is your all-time fave?
This is a tough one but if I had to pick one, it would be Camden Market. I love the diverse mix of people you see there, and the whole vibe too. Beyond Retro is one of my favourite vintage stores.
10.) If you had to persuade a person to try out vintage shopping for the first time, what would you say?
Be daring and confident. Look for key details in a piece that is unique, then mix and match it with other pieces.
Some of my faves from the shop are:
Vintage Red Tassle gold antique buckle belt
Turquoise stone silver snake chain necklace
Feather earrings - Light blue pattern
Crochet cream top.
Vintage Tiger print knit Tank top
Vintage Fuchsia orange with detail top
Vintage Stripey with Bicycle and Medallion Print Shirt
