As I hinted at last week, although I'm not a total vintage expert, I have been quite lucky in finding the odd gem here and there over the last few years or so. Whilst I've definitely got my favourite vintage shops like Rokit and Beyond Retro, sometimes it makes a really nice (and not to mention stress free!) change to have a selection of the best pieces chosen for you. So, rather than rifling through the rails, my recent vintage finds have come straight from ASOS Marketplace- and in particular Mint Vintage. I mentioned in a post at the end of last month that I'd discovered some of their lovely pieces- and the slightly warmer weather which we had last week gave me the perfect opportunity to get some more wear out of a rather special spotty number: 

 Blouse- Mint Vintage via ASOS Marketplace
Jeans- Topshop 
Slippers- c/o Clothing at Tesco 

This blouse is pretty much a perfect day-to-day staple for me, and it's something which I know I'll be getting a lot of wear out of, especially as spring approaches. It goes without saying that I love the navy and white polka dot print, and the bow detailing at the front also is also really pretty, making this the ideal piece for dressing up or down. It arrived at my doorstep in perfect condition too, something which is really reassuring considering that flaws aren't always that easy to spot when shopping for vintage pieces. Mint Vintage is definitely one of my new go-to online shops, and I'm sure I'll be snapping up a few more pieces from them soon! (I'm already saving my pennies for this summer dress!)
