Remember the days when high waisted bikinis and bathing suits were not popular at all in our present fashion world? Times change, opinions change, trends change… Or actually: bringing the old fashion back is the current trend. One of the best fashion trends of course in the world of every retro fashion fanatic. In this case, retro swimwear is more popular than ever.
In my retro fashion closet the dresses, skirts, high waisted pants and retro style tops are represented very well. Retro swimwear and bikinis? Not so much. Time to do something about it…

The retro fashion webshop favorites list

When you’ve been around in the retro fashion world, you may know some of the most popular retro fashion webshops at the moment: Topvintage and Succubus. I am a very loyal customer, but there is so much more to discover in retro fashion wonderland. I’ve made a list of my favorite retro style webshops with original concepts and lovely colors. Some I’ve known for a few years, some I’ve just discovered recently As I mentioned in an earlier blog  post, social media is my number 1 source when it comes to discovering (new) brands. Well, research…I usually bump into brands as I am scrolling through de explore area on Instagram. Also interesting if you’re not that retro, but you like to have a few different (colorful) fashion items or accessories.

A peek into my retro floriental fashion and beauty world

Today I wanted to do a post close to the roots but of course with a retro link. Obviously, I am heavily inspired by the vintage styles of the past. However, this blog starts with Oriental Spice for two reasons. First of all, you can take it literally, because I am literally oriental. Secondly, it stands for food for thought and inspiration next to the lighter things in life (check the inspiration column category if you’re interested). Inspirational food for thought is a topic that always comes back, occasionally with an oriental touch. Remember for example how I wrote about the Indian festival Diwali)?  Back to the first reason.
