Vintage Blouse: I like to buy vintage pieces from time to time; it’s a great way of getting something original and individual. Vintage isn’t about trends, so the items I buy tend to have a longer closet life as I base my decision to purchase on suitability and not fashionability. I found this pink lace blouse in Jenny Vander, a vintage shop in the centre of the city, which I think is Dublin’s longest established vintage outlet. I love going in there in search of something out of the ordinary. Mostly I am content to browse but from time to time I come across an item that not only fits me but is also a fit for my lifestyle.
