Double Tap: Dear Golden

i thought i’d start featuring some of my favourite people on Instagram in a new feature called Double Tap – in case you are, like me, always looking for someone new to follow.

if there’s one person’s photos i am always double tapping, it’s Lauren of vintage shop Dear Golden. this woman is a magician of style. i love seeing her vintage discoveries – the wedding dresses she finds are out of this world. i’m always keeping an eagle eye on her feed in case something pops up in my size (i’ve bought a number of items from her this way!)

she was also one of my very first sponsors, so i have a very soft spot for Dear Golden. a worthy person to kick off Double Tap, don’t you think?

Dear Golden

you may have noticed over in the sidebar that Dear Golden is one of my inaugural sponsors – and I couldn’t be happier because Lauren has become a great internet pal and i am, of course, obsessed with her shop and continually amazed by the vintage pieces she lists every week. Lauren is currently working on her new Dear Golden studio space, and so everything in her etsy shop is on 25% sale! here are some items i have been eyeballing.

this incredible bag

seventies wrap dresses – my favourite:

left: All Tomorrows / middle: Hibiscus dress / right: Redwood Chiffon dress

shoes! too bad my feet can’t be different sizes.

clockwise from top: Etienne Aigner loafers / floral heels / embroidered ballet flats / ethnic woven flats

pink wonders - i could see that lace number as a wedding dress, no?

left: Cut Out Blossom / right: Pink Pinwheel lace

1950s bowtie:

another beauty of a bag - perfect for weekends
