ALL IMAGES FROM THE SASSY WORLD LOOKBOOK
Brand new, online vintage shop, Sassy World, is the vibrant and expressive creation of Southsea based blogger babe, Helena of Bell's Fashion. Ever since Helena stepped onto the blogging scene I've been envious of her effortless flair to pull off the most colourful and extravagant items. She has the most enviable ability to style lairy, vivid colours and bold, abstract prints into the most wonderful 90's inspired combinations. Imagine True Romance meets Ghost World crossed with Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion with a bit of Clueless sprinkled on top. Dreamy, right?
When she announced she was launching her own online vintage website with pieces hand-picked that reflect her own style I knew it was bound to be something magical. An array of rainbow platform shoes, neon faux furs, rose tinted glasses and a never ending amount of glitter! Also, just how incredible are these shoe pom poms? There tends to be an association of vintage with old lady tea dresses and shoulder pads, lots of unwearable shoulder pads! However, Helena's careful selection shows just how fun and colourful vintage can be!
In Sassy World's mission statement she proclaims that she wanted to 'create a highly visual online presence (a very Sassy one) where girls can escape into a vibrant, girl power fuelled world, where they can feel inspired to have more fun with fashion' and that it is her aim to 'not only encourage females to wear more sustainable, unique items of clothing, but to also empower them and give them the confidence to wear whatever they want'. I cannot agree more with how much I agree with her concept and it is truly inspiring. After all, why should fashion being so regimented. Sassy World is pushing the boundaries and making fashion more fun!
