ASOS Market place has become one of the go to places for vintage, second hand and individual one of a kind hand made designs. Anyone and everyone can log on and have their very own boutique in seconds, its a fantastic way to make money, be creative, become more interested in fashion, style and business, you could be buying off the next Henry Holland or Vivienne Westwood,  or a 13 year old girl selling her sisters cast offs, you don’t know! It gives young people, old people, anyone with a mind for business and eye for current trends a platform to excel. 

A little history…only a little…..ASOS is the largest online fashion and beauty retailer selling over 65,000 branded and own label products catering to fashion forward twenty somethings. They also ship for free to over 200 countries from their 1.1 million square foot global distribution centre in the UK. Their website gets 29.5 million visitors a month! Wish my blog would get that much.

James Hart is the guy who started the Market place in 2003, and since then its become a huge profit making machine. 

Here are some notable boutiques on the market place that you should visit: 

HOUSE OF JAM:

We sell original handcrafted designs, alongside an unrivalled handpicked vintage collection We like Versace, Rihanna and Yorkshire tea. We are for divas on a budget…x”

The prices are great, very reasonable, the styles are all unique and would be perfect for a staple going out dress. 

NEVER FULLY DRESSED without a smile 🙂 

They say “Coming from market trading parents, and grandparents from the East End textile trade, it was natural for NFD to start at Portobello and Spitalfields back in 2010. We have fun, with a wish to dress, de-stress and impress, with a longing to inspire and appreciate each individual and each girl’s individuality. All clothing made ethically. Our main driving force is using what we do and know, to help others. We are constantly running different projects which enable us to do this, so get in touch!”

I’m saying that these girls know what girls want now, quality products, low price and super chic designs. My favourite is the blue midi feather waistcoat, would be a crazy statement piece for a night out.

Blogs you should all be reading….

Here is a list of my five favourite Blogs that I just Adore and I’m sure you will too. 

1. STYLE BUBBLE I love this women and her blog because she’s so real and authentic. She is just a lover of fashion, a girl who really does live for it, it’s her life, and thats a great thing, this blog isn’t some part time hobby, its her one and only baby and thats the kind of place we want to go for inspiration! She’s very relatable because she’s more of an outsider looking into the world of fashion, she comments on the fashion pack, has photo shoots with them but you get the impression thats she’s not apart of them, more of a observer. Susie writes beautifully and is consistent with her posts, she has interviews and photos with the fashion industries best and elite, gets all the latest news first and models her own personal style on herself so its great for style inspiration.

2.MAN REPELLER Just the name is amazing, SOLD! The fuck you to girls who dress for men doesn’t stop at the name, the whole site if full of fashion, like fashion fashion. Clothes that only the most fiercest bitches wear. This blog celebrates the coolest, weirdest, most out there fashion trends and I love it! If your still unsure this might help: 

–noun
she who outfits herself in a sartorially offensive mode that may result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls, shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.
–verb (used without object),-pell·ing, -pell·ed.
to commit the act of repelling men:
Girl 1: What are you wearing tonight?
Girl 2: My sweet lime green drop crotch utility pants, of course.
Girl 1: Oh, so we’re man repelling tonight?
*DISCLAIMER: the above conversation took place in this room 5 minutes ago.
Origin: 
2009-10; < repellius (ptp. of repellia to eliminate male attention), equiv. to L repel– (s. ofrepellix) unattractive, celibate, paris fashion week, M.C. Hammer + -repel ler1

man·re·pell·ant, noun

Confused about where you fall? Just check out the blog and see if you feel anything stirring in your belly, like a viking going to war xoxox 

3. ADVANCED STYLE is a blog by Air Seth Cohen, who started out as an freelance photographer and writer in New York. His book was published this year and a documentary film is in the works. 
‘I feature people with great stories and unique personal style, Cary Grant mixed with Anna Piaggi and Quentin Crisp. I focus on men and women over 60, a demographic often ignored by the fashion media. The trick is to stay true to your vision.’  This blogs makes me want to move to New York because it seems to be where all the cool people hang out looking fabulous! 
4.  STREET PEEPER Phil Oh created ‘failed internet start-ups’ and published a chick-lit novel before he started his photographic street-style blog. He now contributes to American Vogue.com and works on advertising campaigns.
‘When I started there weren’t a lot of street-style blogs. I thought it would be fun to go around taking pictures of people I viewed as looking cool. Now my blog is my work and I’ve also been commissioned through it. These days I cover a lot more fashion weeks. There are so many blogs out there all attempting to do similar things, so I suppose what differentiates mine is simply my personal point of view. I like a lot of colour, print and pattern when done well, which is rare. I don’t really look for a particular designer or trend, I just take pictures of things that I like.’
5. KINGDOM OF STYLE Launched six years ago by Michelle Haswell and Marie Thomson, Kingdom of Style is the leading fashion blog to come out of Scotland.
‘Marie was going through a tough time; we thought a blog would not only be a good project but also an ideal outlet for this passion we share. The blog was an online extension of our lives, in which we talked endlessly about clothes and style. The main difference is our age. We are coming from the perspective of women in their thirties and forties who don’t conform to the expectation of how women our age should dress. Anecdotal, observational, outspoken and often irreverent, we are free to feature whatever is making our hearts race that day.’And thats all folks! All my fave blogs! Now go check em out! xoxoxo  

Nasty Gal

c8387ae6fec6b33d63a7d7436683da0c Nasty Gals Always Do It Better…

Nasty Gal is my all time favourite online boutique. They have an amazing ethos, its for girls who want to look good, but for themselves and each other, not looking cute or sexy for men, or having to follow the same old fashion trends as the high street. Its for girls who are arty and into fashion, but not into high fashion or are to arty and obscure, its the middle age when your not a little girl and your not mumesy in the playground, its a brand that caters for gals living the best bit of life! 

Unfortunately I have no shop to go visit and take pictures as its an online boutique but I have found most of these rad pics from Flickr and Pinterest so I wont be getting any sneaky fines through the door!
