This Is Tasty Vintage

27 Feb

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALincoln is an odd one. It’s completely unsure as to whether it is unending council estate or chic cobbled city. There is, inexplicably, a Bang and Olufsen shop not two minutes walk from a convenience store that wouldn’t look out of place on Shameless.

Steep Hill rises out of the madness as the city’s deciding and ultimately redeeming feature. It is chic, cobbled and chock full of fantastic tea rooms, vintage shops and ancient English architecture (inc. a Roman well!) Tasty Vintage is one of my favourite parts of said hill. It isn’t – like too many vintage shops are – all amended Ralph Lauren shirts and Levi’s shorts. This is a highly curated collection of clothes that have been picked out for their quality and beauty with much care – and they’re particularly good at their lingerie. Each item bears a handwritten label detailing the age and material so you know exactly what era you’re buying from and there’s a real sense that you’re buying into real genuine history rather than a five year old unloved shirt that has been chopped into a crop top.

One of the first shoots I ever did on this blog was with a crepe and lace lingerie playsuit I found in there for only £45: that is an almost one hundred year old item of beauty sold at Topshop prices.
