Hello! And welcome to my “Vintage Guru” blog especially composed for Cheltenham Fashion Week! I thought I might use this first blog entry as an introduction to who I am, what I do and where my passions lie! My name is Missy Malone and I am a vintage enthusiast first and foremost, but I certainly […]

Charli Cohen

People like Charli Cohen restore my faith in the fashion industry. Graduating as Womenswear Student of the Year from Kingston University, being touted as one of Britain’s hottest young designers and receiving multiple awards nominations for her high-fashion fitnesswear might make some young women diva-esque to say the least. Not Charli. She is an absolute […]

HIIT Me Baby One More Time

Let’s face it: a typical day in the life of a woman used to go something like this: 1. Put on corset 2. Do some sewing 3. Host suitor for afternoon tea 4. Adjust corset (to avoid passing out) 5. Darn father’s socks before supper. In 2013, it’s about as far removed from that as […]

Come rain or shine….no wait, just shine, Burberry is here

At risk of sounding ancient, it all gets a little boring. With trends, we come to expect this. They come, they go and then they come […]

The Biggest Debate

You can’t have failed to notice the fashion and celebrity world has been alight with Big Apple-flavoured flames for the last week. In amongst the slick catwalk shows and glamorous collections nestle a few key headlines. This year, one headline has to be Eden Miller’s collection: made for and modelled entirely by plus-size women. And […]

Charley and Sam in wonderland?

What’s your regular Tuesday night like? Sweating it out in the gym in your dad’s old t-shirt (actually, gym? Who am I kidding?)? Heading home to attack the laundry and scale the mountain of ironing? If it’s near the beginning of the month, perhaps a surf of the internet and a shop-a-thon of shoes that […]
