Feeling good
By Lindsay Crafts of Campbell Crafts Vintage

This month we spring clean, start those summer diets and prepare for the warmer weather ahead. It’s the time to start feeling good about yourself and investing in a fabulous new spring/summer wardrobe – full of colour, pastels and prints.

We spend a lot of time sourcing new, unusual and exclusive to the UK brands that will keep you looking and feeling fabulous this spring – just in time for all the vintage weekenders and events this season! We know there is nothing worse than turning up at an event and bumping into people wearing the exact same thing as you – cringe! That’s why mixing true vintage, with exclusive pieces from around the globe will keep you ahead of the fashion game. Every vintage vixen knows that mixing true vintage with repro is a great way of achieving a timeless look, while getting your actual dress size (with no alterations required) and keeping costs down!

Its tough to know how to dress to impress, should it be a casual rockabilly feel, a 40s war time tea dress or a colourful tropical look that Carmen Miranda would be proud of? Why not mix and match, nothing keeps you looking fresh like a whole new top to toe look each day! While adding a headscarf, cardigan and saddle shoes to a basic jeans and tee combo will add that vintage feel for your ‘everyday life’.


When we look at images of the ‘good old days’ we long for those prints, cuts and designs – all topped with perfect hair and make-up. By even achieving a small bit of that look – in every day life you can feel great.  A new vintage print t-shirt goes a long way in picking up your mood and adding a spring to your step, especially when the compliments start rolling in!

Its been proven that shopping releases endorphins and blasts those winter blues – so you can not only look amazing in your new treats but you are doing some scientifically approved goodness for your body! A great excuse if I ever heard of one!

Campbell Crafts scours the globe looking for unique, exclusive brands and brings them to the UK for you all to appreciate and we ship worldwide! Give us a follow on instagram and facebook to see what’s new and what events we are attending!!!
