Win £150 to spend on American Vintage clothes at The Dressing Room

Living just off the Gloucester Road in Bristol I am totally spoilt for independent stores. In fact it’s one of the reasons I moved here. I love that when I have a friend’s birthday coming up I know I can walk just five minutes up the road and pick out a present made and sold by a local designer or craftsperson.

I am really happy then this month to be bringing you a competition from The Dressing Room to celebrate Independent Retailer Month. The campaign highlights the important role smaller, local, independent retailers play in the communities they serve, the local economy they contribute to, and in the retail sector as a whole.

According to the Centre for Local Economic Strategies for every £1 that is spent with a local, independent business, between 50p-70p circulates back into that local economy. Buying locally supports local traders, their suppliers and the people they depend on to run their businesses. Buying locally boosts the local economy, rebuilding confidence in the community, enabling local businesses to prosper and grow.

Besides, isn’t it just nicer to know you are supporting a real person, their livelihood and their family, wherever they are, rather than a massive faceless organisation?

In the spirit of all things indie The Dressing Room, an online indie fashion boutique, are giving one of my readers £150 to spend on their gorgeous American Vintage range. The range is full of really stylish but practical pieces in beautiful colours. One of my favourite items is this jacket, called the ‘Fayettville printed pineapple jacket’ because, believe it or not, of all the places in the US, I have actually been to Fayettville! It’s just down the road from where I drank my milkshake.

American Vintage

If you’d like to win £150 to spend on new clothes (obvious question of the day) then just get friendly with the little widget below. The competition will close at the end of Indie Retailer Month on 31st July.

    My favourite item of clothing is a pair of jeans I got from freecycle! Someone was offering them and they were size 14 long next jeans, I really like next jeans, they’re a good fit! Anyway I collected them and at first glance thought they weren’t very nice but when I put them on they looked fab! Really stylish flares and just look unusual! Sadly hole in the knee now and it would be really hard to get another pair the same style.

    Fav item has to be my pair of Toms, I’ve had them about 5 years now and even tho they are cream they are still going strong. Whenever they start to look grubby, I pop them in the wash and they come up like new. I have been wearing them so much this summer I’ve developed a Toms tan line across my feet :-)

    I have a Monsoon skirt that I’ve had for about 8 years that I adore. It’s white with a big, bold black floral print. It comes out every summer without fail. the best thing about is that it’s the only item of clothing I have that still fits after having the children!

    At the moment my favourite item of clothing is a Levi’s denim dress with a studded collar. I can wear it all the time without feeling uncomfortable, which is weird since I’m not a person who generally wears skirts or dresses in the day time. I found it in Tk Maxx so it was a bargin too!

  160. 18 July, 2013 / 8:02 pm

    Mine is a gorgeous red dress that I bought when I was 17 (do I have to admit how many years ago that was?! More than 20 so it’s a vintage item now!) that still fits and flatters. It’s one of those dresses that’s just right for me, my hubby loves me in it, my kids don’t hate it … and I love the way it looks and the conidence boost that it gives me

    My fave piece is my zebra onesie!! It never fails to make my boyfriend smile at me even if he is in a grump and if I feel cold, tired or poorly I curl up on the sofa in it and instantly it starts to make me feel a bit better! I haven’t worn it for a while with all this hot sunshine!! I am looking forward to winter so I can snuggle up in it again! Don’t shoot me but I prefer the cooler climates lol xx

    I had two favourites: a 1950’s lilac dress with a white print (that I used to call my ‘tablecloth’ dress as this is what the fabric reminded me of), and a dress made from soft hessian in two tones of ‘yellow/beige’ – it made me think of ‘sack cloth and ashes’ and was like a middle ages pinafore…….both of them were very beautiful indeed in their own way, and they made me look beautiful!!

    I adore my ebay special, a Jasper Conran Deep blue denim jacket that i won on the auction site about 4 years ago for £3.99 i have worn this more than anything, there was nothing wrong with it just someone outsized it, i love it with summer dresses or my linens!

  224. 31 July, 2013 / 3:41 am

    My favourite item of clothing has to be my 50s style dress I managed to pick up from the charity shop. We passed it and I knew I had to go back for it, when I got there the lady said she thought it was for display only!! Eek…I was gutted! Another lady came out though and said to sell it so I got it in the end……phew!

    Thanks for the chance to win, spending that much on yield would be a dream come true!

  225. 31 July, 2013 / 3:44 am

    Predictive text is a pain ….it was meant to say ‘myself’ not yield!! lol
