That's where you and I will meet...Beyond the Retro!


 Hello dolls!! Midweek now & all is marvellous! I hope the start of the week has been lush for you to. Today, I am showing off one of the gifts I received for my birthday earlier in the month, it comes from the fantastic vintage store - Beyond Retro. Many of you will be quite familiar with this mega store for always being stocked with bundles of style & treasures for those that are not only looking for vintage, but something that bit different and quirky. This being my first time ordering from them (my husband let me pick the dress, rather than pick it himself - although, he does have great taste) I wanted to share my experience, so that if there are any of you out that haven't yet purchased from them, you can read from someone who has. Firstly, I must say their customer service is sublime, I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful their employees are, not only on Twitter, but on the customer messenger they use on their website. I had a query and needed a quick answer & a quick answer I received.  They pack a wide range of vintage clothes to choose from varying in era, type, men's & women's, accessories and so forth. I know some of my blog friends have had the pleasure of popping into one of their various store locations - lucky you! But, I ordered my item & it came in no time at all, well packaged, clean & as described. I couldn't be more happy, I already have my eye on quite a few more pretties for my Christmas list (yes, it's getting closer, can you believe it!?! The year has flown by) that I'll be sharing in a future post! Enjoy the photos & I hope all of you have a wonderful Wednesday filled with joy & happiness!!

Lots of loves my darling dears!!

  1. You are a beautiful Doll. I love your dress, and the little pale pink angora beret! We popped into a Vintage store on rue de Rivoli and I saw a silk navy and star print very feminine Marc Jacobs dress for my friend. She is beyond thrilled with it and wore it trotting up the Champs Elysses last night! Xxx

  4. You look stunning in these colours, they really suit you and that pink beret adds even more charm to it. It's been ages since I've been to Beyond Retro, might be time for a visit again - though I can't actually pull of that kind of dress ;-) Have a lovely day, hopefully with some sunshine. xo

    1. Thank you :) I do love berets, gets me out of doing my hair really ;) You should go in there, I like that they have all kinds of looks, not just girly girly or something like that. A great retro jacket would suit you to go on your bike with, super cool :))) Have a lovely day doll, there was a bit of sunshine, but it is getting colder. Least no rain. I hope you have some sunshine too xo

  26. Kizzy, it's a gorgeous dress my friend. The colors in it so suit you! You made an excellent choice. I love your makeup too! It makes a statement, yet its so soft. Gavin captured you well doll. I want to thank you for your encouraging words. I really appreciate it. I've deleted some people from my blog roll. Some people are just leaving comments to get one. I also deleted the icing on the cake comment list, because some are fixated on that instead of reading my posts. LOL I'm tired of certain aspects of blogging. So I'm doing new things to control it. Love you girl!! ((hug))
