Cute as a Button | Monica Valentine Vintage // OOTD

Untitled

Buttons – oh how practical they are yet oh so colourful. I used to get called “Button” as a kid – a nickname that formed itself due to my little button nose. It is no surprise then that I love buttons and use them in a variety of craft projects as well as them catching my eye each time I shop.

I recently sourced this vintage beauty for my online store (www.monicavalentinevintage.com) Рhow divine is it though? Made from a stiffer cotton and sturdier in structure, it really fits snug and hugs all your curves in the right places. I love the vibrance of the yellow and the cute as a button (there I go again) flower motif that someone has lovingly stitched on! I have paired with some nude flats and a bright lippy (of course) Рthis one is American Beauty by Besame. 

My daughter is 5 weeks old yesterday and I am (as most new mummies) adjusting to new sleep patterns (or lack of) and trying to juggle everything. Excuse my face and hair in these shots Рthanks to Besame, I literally look half human.

I have started blogging again more regularly – which is odd given that I now have a little person in my life that leaves me with even less spare time these days. She is my inspiration for starting to write again however. I want her to know that when she grows up – all women are fabulous. I would love her to have her own individual style, to celebrate curves, natural beauty and of course – being herself.

I handpick each item that I sell on my store because I believe in selling what I love and loving what I sell. When I opened Monica Valentine Vintage back in 2014 РI wanted to base my selections around my own style choices and wardrobe. Dressing up makes me feel empowered, confident and ready to tackle the world. I wanted my store to reflect how I woke up and what I had put on for the day.

I love several vintage styles although most of my favourites tend to fall into the 1950s and 1960s era’s with a dabble in 1970s every now and again. As they say:

Dress like you are going somewhere better later

You never know.
