Spice Up Your Life!

Talk of a Spice Girls reunion last week got the 90s girl inside us all excited! It’s been almost 20 years since they burst into our lives (we can’t believe it either!). It seems like only yesterday we were screaming the lyrics to ‘Spice Up Your Life’ in front of the bedroom mirror, much to our parents dismay. And whilst they've been gone awhile, they certainly haven’t been forgotten.




We are in the midst of a 90s revival right now and its clear to see that a host of newbie celebs have taken inspiration from sporty, posh, scary, baby and ginger in the style stakes. Just like them we still love to incorporate the ‘girl power’ look into our everyday lives.





Granted we still haven’t mastered the art of walking in platforms and we’re not too keen on flashing as much flesh as the girls did back in the day but the odd hint of leopard print is a must!

With this in mind we have created a mini guide to achieve the ‘subtle spice’ approach. We’ve taken inspiration from the fierce five to create some looks straight from the Rock my Vintage range. And my, we’ve had fun digging up old images of the girlies.

Wedding Wednesday - 1950s Bridesmaids

For this week's Wedding Wednesday, we're taking a look at one of our favourite eras. Kitsch weddings are ideal for retro loving couples, who want to incorporate a vintage feel on their special day. The fifties were colourful, fun and quirky, so it makes a fantastic theme for a fun loving couple.


When it comes to your bridesmaids dresses, you can really have some fun! Mix up colours and prints to really channel the spirit of the era, or go for flirty floral prints for a bolder look.

Here at Rock My Vintage we've got you covered, with our 1950s prom dresses coming in an array of popping prints and colours. Choose between plain, polka dot or floral to fit with your wedding aesthetic. With a classic fifties shape, these flattering styles are perfect for swishing and twirling on the dance floor and they are sure to suit even the pickiest of pals.







So then, vintage vixens, which do you love?!
