So seeing as the YMCA is full of beautiful retro furniture I thought I would take advantage of Ra, the managers, good nature and style up some outfits in the window - having turned it into an open plan living space. And seeing as I collect vintage clothes from a variety of eras, I thought it might be fun to give them a bit of an airing.
60's had to be tiger print nylon and the 70's really had to be flares and sideboards;

When it came to the 80's the blak lace Madonna dress (it was very nearly a batwing and neon leg warmers
|80's lace - all that's missing is the crimping!|
90's is quite dear to my heart as I was a teenager then so I really felt I should show how it really was when grunge was king;
And finally, that dull decade the 00's. I know not everything about it was dull fashion wise but with the growth of "budget fashion" and with more people than ever hitting the high streets for quick fashion fixes I can't really pin my finger on anything decade defining, so I thought I would keep it really simple;
If you ever have a spare afternoon or saturday morning and you're in the area I really can't recommend the YMCA enough, it truly is a vintage furniture treasure trove.
