Hello sunshine

Guest post by intern Amy

No outfit is complete without this perfect accessory. In this mini heatwave we’ve all had good reason to get out the shades and basque in the sunshine.  No matter what your style, everyone owns a pair.

Here’s some of our favourite spec-tacular looks (pardon the pun) that we couldn’t help but notice, even if the sun was in our eyes

The modernista look is never complete without a pair of round framed glasses

One of the fashion industries most recognised figures, Anna Wintour, taking us back to the 90s with an oversized jumbo pair

There’s nothing like being dramatic, and that’s why these 60s style glasses are always a personal favourite. With their over-sized frame and block colour, you can’t help but stand out

Translucent glasses have become widely popular this year. I think its easy to say this accessory is to express your inner bohemian, rather than its actual purpose of protecting against sunlight but I love it

I hope you feel as inspired as we do here at The Stellar Boutique! Why not check out our sunglasses range to discover a blast from the past and add that missing touch to your outfit

Second to ASOS? That’s us!

We were delighted to be second to ASOS in Marie Claire’s online vintage stores countdown.

Here are the highlights:

Or how to look like Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and co.

Mixing vintage with high-street clothing is the key to being trendy without looking too try-hard, just ask Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller and Kate Moss.

But vintage shopping isn’t easy, you can easily spend hours in a store and walk out with nothing – which is why online shopping is the answer.

We’ve rounded up the best online vintage clothing stores for you, whether you’re after a vintage Chanel 2.55 bag, or the perfect retro band t-shirt.

2. The Stellar Boutique
You are very safe in Stella’s hands. Having worked at Levi’s, Marks & Spencer, Topshop and own a stall at Portobello Market (Kate Moss and Stella McCartney were regulars, FYI), she set up The Stellar Boutique. It’s bursting with one-off gems from designers and artists from all over the world. Warning: you will lose hours of your life pouring over Stella’s cleverly curated collections.

Casting our vintage net

This was a lovely surprise for us; a mention in German magazine Maxima’s website.

Great to see us reaching vintage fans from far and wide!

Just incase your German is a bit rusty, here’s the translation:

“Prior to starting her online career, the operator of this store worked for Levi’s and Topshop and had her own booth on London’s famous Portobello Market, which was often visited by Kate Moss and Stella McCartney. A very good address to pimp your own wardrobe with vintage treasures! You can search for a decade or a category. Since this is more about style than labels, the prices are also cheap. We are in love with this Seventies skirt!”
