Classed of more of a vintage/thrift shop than a charity shop The 2nd Look is buried in the middle of Sheen, London. Amid a legion of charity shops, this store will select and sell your cast-offs. It is filled and practically spilling over with designer pieces at prices that will make you gasp. Be prepared to purchase a larger wardrobe after a visit, and be on the verge of bankruptcy.

Whilst browsing through the busy rails at The 2nd Look I came across some beautiful garments from Lonely Hearts.
The collections are so pretty and girly with a sexy bondage twist.
Lonely Hearts have made me develop a crush on the whole visible socks thing, I never was a fan of the socks and heels/sandals thing but I'm tempted to give it a go.
Vivetta is a small Italian atelier whose clothing designs are a mixture of girlish cuteness and rock and roll.
BRAND HISTORYVIVETTA was founded in 2008 by Vivi Ponti, its designer. The designs are purely made in Italy both in material and production and now are stored in more than 20 multi-brands boutiques all over the world.
With a nod to the past but the feet firmly planted in the now, Vivetta's signature’s style is characterized by unconventional details on fresh look with a touch of vintage feeling. Its details are the result of superb creativity that serves both fun and lively feeling and yet a polite and mademoiselle look. The style is all about combining beautiful designs with the unexpected.
I came across Vivetta whilst scowering through Glamour magazine. I noticed one of their lovely coats on a model and wanted it!
As I am moving to humid Hong Kong I will not be putting one on my wish list.

I wanted to share this enchanting editorial with all of you, photographed by Signe Vilstrup.
Signe has worked with magazines such as Vogue and Elle and has a wonderful portfolio full of pretty images. I fell in love with the bohemian feel of this editorial.
Keeping in with the flowery theme I came across these images I love.
