Bloom jersey wrap dress £45 – covers all 3 trends Merle will be wearing this season

What made you decide to start blogging? I’m a professional journalist, with a love of all things vintage in the beauty and fashion world, and wanted an outlet to write about all the things I love.

What’s your biggest achievement in the blogosphere?  Just getting posts written regularly is a huge achievement! But I guess my hard work at my own blog paying off, and getting me writing work on other blogs.

Where do you look for inspiration when writing posts? Everywhere! Books, TV, films, magazines, the news, or just walking down the street! There are stories everywhere that are waiting to be shared!

Is blogging your day job or do you have another occupation? Sort of – writing is my day job, for magazines and newspapers, as well as online.

Any favourite blogs/bloggers? Kandee Johnson, the AMAZING beauty blogger from the USA. She’s hilarious, and I love her. I also love Diary of A Vintage Girl from Fleur De Guerre

Tell us about your style…eclectic! A mix of vintage pieces with modern bits, with lots of colour and print!

What’s the one piece in your wardrobe you couldn’t live without? Probably a vintage maxi dress with sparkle that I have worn on many occasions – it’s my go-to dress when all else fails!

Red spot prom dress £45

Who are your style icons? Iris Apfel, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Carrie Bradshaw, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry, Paula Yates

Share a style tip with us…never conform! If someone says red and green don’t go – wear them together!  Develop  your own style – lead, don’t follow!

How would you describe our style? Chic and current with a retro twist.

What’s your favourite piece from our current collections? Probably the red and white large polka dot prom dress – I love polka dots!

Do you prefer to shop online or in-store and why? I love looking online, but then going into store and feeling the garments. And there’s nothing better than a real-life rummage in a vintage shop!

The one trend you’ll be wearing this season is…ooh, patterns – most likely stripes, florals and neon prints all at once!
