In all my fashion decisions I am still trying to replicate my millennium party outfit.

The nine year old me wore black silk flares and an all over silver sequinned crop top with chunky silver strap 90s sandals. I also rocked some butterfly hair clips because I thought they made me look like I could be a member of Steps…

Scouting for treasure is the reason I began my own boutique. I find myself all over the UK searching for preloved gems, like a pirate for car boot sales. Here’s some Y2K thrift favourites that I’ve found recently. The PVC red hat that I’ve paired with the leopard print dress is my top find. I think it’s because it reminds me of Paddington and I always thought that Bear had style… Originally from John Lewis I found it in an Essex charity shop for next to nothing and it has been glued to my head ever since.
