Instagram Roundup July - August

Well, we've certainly been having a lovely summer this year. I had to actually dig the umbrella out the other day when it rained as it has been so long since I've had to use it.

Today I thought I would do an instagram roundup of my summer so far, if you don't already follow me on there my username is stylesixties.

London Life: My Favourite Vintage Shops

Today I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite vintage shopping haunts in the big smoke. If you're planning a trip to London then these shops come highly recommended. I tend to frequent stores that have a good selection of 1960s clothes, as that is obviously what I look for when I go shopping, but the majority of the ones listed below all stock a mix of decades. 

Radio Days

Radio Days is a gem of a shop in Lower Marsh Street, Waterloo. Filled to the brim with high quality vintage items from the 1920s to the 1980s, it has some great early to mid 1960s clothes in store. There's a great selection of menswear and womenswear, think swimsuits, dresses, evening wear and suits. Not to mention some great accessories. I highly recommend popping in if you're in the area.

Foale and Tuffin

Before Biba there was Marion Foale and Sally Tuffin, two girls who met at Walthamstow Art College and went on to have a trailblazing career throughout the 1960s and into the early 1970s. Like so many others in the '60s they just happened to be in the right place at the right time and they subsequently found themselves in the middle of the cultural explosion that was taking place in London that later went on to define the decade.
