Hat: Vintage via Beatnik Emporium, £23 // Dress: Vintage, 99p via eBay // Necklace: Rock N Rose, £18 // Petticoat (worn underneath): Angel's Fancy Dress, £15 // Boots: Dr Marten's via eBay, £112

Toni at Glass Boutique recently contacted me to feature as a part of their "Best of British" campaign as part of the upcoming celebration of the Golden Jubilee and of course, let's not forget the Olympics coming to London! What an exciting time to be British! Glass Boutique is an online store that stocks a whole host of designer names from Something Else to Libertine-Libertine, which are hard to come by on the high street. They've been kind enough to offer readers of Fox & Feather a 15% discount code off of any full-priced items. Just enter 'FAF15' at the checkout to redeem your code. This offer is only valid until this Wednesday, so snap up a bargain whilst you can! A particular favourite of mine are these beautiful Mark McNairy gold brogues and these Swedish Hasbeens.

As a part of Glass Boutique's "Best of British" campaign, today's outfit was inspired by Britain of the 1980's. This vintage tartan dress was an absolute steal at only 99p and although it's a little big on, it's nothing a belt cannot sort out! I also popped a petticoat underneath (which was intially bought for fancy dress) to exaggerate the 1980's look. Think Smell from 'This Is England'. Of course, this look would not be complete without a pair of traditional British Dr. Marten's, which are always firm staples in my wardrobe. Dr. Marten's are one of the most iconic designs of footwear in the world as their yellow stitching and air-cushioned soles are recognised internationally. They are the epitome of the style that was on the streets of Britain in the 1980's.

Today was my last hand-in for my second year at university so I'm currently celebrating with a bottle of wine for one. This also means no interruptions or breaks from blogging for at least 5 whole beautiful months over the summer!
