Spring/Summer 2011 trends – be different and buy vintage!

We all like to try new things in spring…there is something exciting about the new beginning –  the birth of another summer. Girls everywhere are starting to wear more colourful clothes, they smile more often and are coming out in flocks hunting for new trends.  Here is a choice of some gorgeous vintage stuff from Etsy.com if you don’t fancy hitting the high street.

1. GRANNY GOES SUPER CHIC!
