I visited Sophie’s Shop, tucked away in Blenheim Studios in Forest Row, East Sussex which has a fantastic collection of vintage and nearly new designer clothes and accessories. The shop is the perfect combination of easy-to-wear basics, beautiful designer pieces and exquisite vintage finds, all carefully chosen and displayed alongside each other.
Sophie kindly let me try on many items including a wonderful red Diane Von Furstenberg dress, Iro jeans, super J Crew patterned shorts and a pretty vintage white lace dress, which was just in; it was great fun discovering unique vintage pieces amongst well-known designer labels. I came away with some real finds and I can’t wait to wear a charming shirt dress which Sophie recommended I try – a piece I would never normally have picked out for myself. I am also more than tempted to go back for some sweet Chloe pumps in cream, but am certain they will have been snapped up by now. My sister came away with some beautiful metallic Alexander McQueen heels, sadly we don’t have the same size feet!
Do go have a look, as there is something for every occasion and new items come in all the time. Thank you Sophie for allowing us to invade for the afternoon!
