Some of my fondest memories are from the days of selling my vintage finds on the fabulous Portobello Market in London many moons ago. I always feel at home on the markets, so when the opportunity arose to join forces with my best friend and owner of ‘Vintage Teeth’ to have a stall on the vintage flea market in Barcelona, I jumped at the chance! The sun was out as were the trendy, vintage loving bohemians of Barcelona. It was great to get back to my roots and enjoy a day selling my vintage collection amongst friends and the fashionistas of this beautiful city.
No successful day on the market is complete without a cheeky cider and I was delighted to have a visit from my good friend (and occasional model for The Stellar Boutique) Padge and his gorgeous pooch Socks, a pup from one of my very own dogs! Now, more aptly known as, ‘Socks in the city’!
If you fancy a rummage through the fabulously eclectic stalls to find a vintage treasure, The Flea Market Barcelona is on every second sunday of the month at Dressanes. More details here: https://www.facebook.com/fleamarketbcn/timeline
For the ultimate in bohemian chic and the best way to add some instant glam to your outfit,
these boho bags are just what you need! Beautifully handmade in India to the highest quality, this fabulous collection of gorgeous, authentic bags are made from genuine vintage Indian embroidery and embellished with vintage coins, bells, mirrors and tassels.

These little beauties are all one-of-a-kind so there’s no time to waist! Treat yourself or someone you love with a beautifully original gift this Christmas.
If you’re anything like me, having a nose behind the scenes and a peek into other peoples lives is somewhat of a guilty pleasure! So I decided to ‘open the doors’ into the heart of The Stellar Boutique and give you, my loyal customers, a perusal round the epicenter of the online fashion shop.
To call it simply ‘an office’ would be a slight injustice. Not just a stockroom, this little space of mine (converted from an old cow barn in my garden) provides me with the perfect place of focus and inspiration. A trove of vintage treasures and fashion finds, this little den is my ultimate ‘girl-cave’!
Welcome to where it all happens……
No day at the office would be complete without some four-legged friends for company!!
I’m possibly at my happiest when searching through a rail of vintage dresses. However, I get frustrated by how poor vintage shopping online can be: too many bad pictures, too many items badly labelled. Over years of searching, I’ve around 15 different boutiques I come back to time and time again. Want to experiment with vintage? Trust me: try these shops first.
The Stellar Boutique has something of a bohemian edge. The photographs of its vintage stock – dating from the 1940s through to the 1990s – are a lesson in how to make vintage look contemporary. I love the colours of this 50s shirt dress: I’d quite like her yellow converse and basket too.
Big thanks to Domestic Sluttery blog for your glowing review
As you all know I love online shopping and am happy to waste away hours searching for the perfect items on eBay, but when searching for the perfect fringed jacket recently, I came across ‘The Stellar Boutique‘, it was a real find as the online shop is filled with vintage treasures and genuine Moroccan accessories. I fell in love with every single one of the bags and couldn’t stop myself mentally designing a new flat filled with treasure from their home section.
I checked out the about me section of the website and was fascinated to hear more about Stellas life, so I got in contact with her and wanted to share this amazing woman with you guys. The shop was created by owner Stella as an outlet to showcase designers and artists from around the world, she is pretty much living the dream, living in a hippy farm house in the Spanish countryside with in her own words ‘a menagerie of dogs, cats, goats, sheep and chickens’.
After graduating from University for the Creative Arts with a degree in fashion design in 2000, Stella went on to design for Topshop in London; assisted at the Times newspaper’s fashion department; worked in visual merchandising for Levi Strauss and Marks & Spencer; and spent time as a stylist both independently and for the BBC. With such a huge range of experience under her belt, she was able to successfully launch her own label in 2002 which was sold in Topshop, Oxford Street amongst others. She spent 3 years on her stall in Portobello Market, selling hand picked vintage to the likes of Stella McCartney and Kate Moss, being able to count Kate Moss as one of your regulars is a huge achievement and something I am very jealous of!
She has spent the last 10 years working in the fashion industry and travelling the globe collecting treasure which has provided the inspiration for The Stellar Boutique, I love this idea because I am such a hoarder I love to pick up bits and pieces whilst away in the hope that one day I could use them. I wanted to share some of my favourite pieces from the website, you can the website out here and I hope you like what you see as much as I did!
Big thanks to Sophie at Opel Wren blog for this fabulous post!
