This is my (Terri's) first post! Laura has always been the Love Miss Daisy blogger, but she's finally bullied me into writing something and now I have the bug. So there'll be more from me from now on! Here's a little something I put together about the most recent dress we've added to the website...
When I was an impoverished student way back in the Seventies - yes, not only do I sell vintage, I AM vintage - one of my favourite boutiques was in a wonderful long gone store called Lewis's in Leeds. The "young fashion" section was to be found tucked away at the far end of the top floor of the store. Amongst the dimmed lights and sat alongside the likes of very trendy Miss Selfridge, was a concession shop called Snob which stocked frocks with lovely prints and swishy fabrics.
I can be seen here (third from right) with a group of fellow student teachers in 1975 wearing my favourite Snob dress and Sacha platform sandals. Oh how I wish I'd kept them!
These memories were recently dusted off because to my delight while sourcing stock, I came across a vintage Snob dress which could easily be from the same collection as my brown floral number in the photograph. Pictured below, it's red, cheerful and finding it has brought back some very happy memories. I like to think that my own beloved Snob dress has survived the years and is bringing a new owner somewhere some pleasure. I'm sure the original owner of this one would be thrilled too. Who knows, maybe we passed each other at the back of the top floor of Lewis's in 1975!
