Customer Inspirations - Chelsi Sheils

You'll recognise Chelsi, people think she works with us. She doesn't haha. She's an honorary team member though. We'd be lost without her fantastic smile, crazy charisma and helpful nature. Here's what Chelsi had to say. "My love of vintage started when I was about 15, at school and figuring out what to make for my textiles GCSE task.

Customer Inspiration

Sophie first came to us in 2018. Below is her story. A tale of fashion inspiration and growing to love your true self.I first fell in love with vintage style through quite a strange way. I just naturally felt uncomfortable and when it came to my prom I got a very modern prom dress AFTER TRYING ON BILLIONS. However I just I didn’t fall in love with any of them. I watched a video of Judy Garland in this beautiful red off the shoulder dress and I adored it. I looked online, did a bit of research and found Rockamilly. It was my closest vintage dress shop and the moment I walked in I found this beautiful, red off the...
