Back in July, I received an email from DotComGiftShop letting me know they'd included Missy Vintage in a 'Shopping Blogs We Love' post. I was away at the time, put popped over to find that not only had they written a lovely description about this blog, but that the other bloggers included were fab, meaning I discovered some new blogs to read and a super little shoppping site too. Here's what they wrote about me......
The summer hasn’t been great this year but fear not - Missy Vintage has it fashionably covered! Her blog features retro looks perfect for the uncertain British weather, like a classic, neutral mac or boat shoes that go hand in hand with rolled up jeans and a polka dot dress. Whether you’re fully committed to vintage fashion or you just fancy a retro hairstyle every now and then, pop over to Missy’s blog for handy outfit advice. Don’t worry, she’s not the policing type, so if you like the modern trends just as much as the old fashioned, you’ll feel at home on her blog. She might give you a history lesson, too!
But what is the shopping like I hear you ask? Well quirky and affordable, this will be a good resource for Christmas (yes I dropped the C bomb.... again) with a massive selection of vintage and retro inspired gifts along with ideas for people who aren't so in to that way of life too. Also if the most important person you need to buy a gift for is you, then there's lot's of items you'll want to treat yourself and your home too as well! I've ploughed through the squillion items for sale and I've picked out a few gorgeous gems to give you an idea of what you could expect to buy with your hard earned pennies.

I love shopping for gifts, especially when it means a few things for me might get slipped in to the trolley too....
