Voucher codes for vintage-look books

I’ve covered a whole host of vintage-inspired products on this blog but I don’t think I’ve ever done books, which is strange, because I like books rather a lot. So with Christmas coming up and all, I had a look through the latest The Book People voucher codes, The Hive Store voucher codes and WH Smith vouchers to see what vintage-inspired books I could find…

All book lovers should be aware of The Book People voucher codes – not only does this site have fantastic clearance prices on a great range, but The Book People voucher codes could also get you additional discounts on your order. Current The Book People voucher codes get you 5% off your books when you spend £35 or more, making them perfect for placing a Christmas order. Here are three titles I’ve found that celebrate all things vintage – the prices shown are the standard The Book People prices, so just take another 5% off…

Vintage Poetry Collection - 3 books - Collection - 9780099595588

Vintage Poetry Collection - £4.99 (RRP: £25.97)

A Child's Christmas in Wales - Hardback - 9781407248448 - Dylan Thomas

A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas - £3.99 (RRP: £10.99)

South Riding Collection - 3 Books - Collection - 9780748135271 - Winifred Holtby

South Riding Collection by Winifred Holtby - £4.99 (RRP: £26.97)


The Hive Store voucher codes are a wonderful thing – if you order using them, your money goes towards your local independent bookshop, and you can even choose to pick up your purchases from there. Big bookshop hugs all around then. You can use The Hive Store voucher codes to browse their gift collection but I think these three are the pick of the vintage book bunch…

Gertie Sews Vintage Casual, Hardback book

Gertie Sews Vintage Casual by Gretchen Hirsch - £14.39 (was £21.99)

The Art Of Pin-Up, Hardback book

The Art of Pin-Up - £75.99 (was £135)

75 Years Of Marvel Comics, Hardback book

75 Years of Marvel Comics - £75.99 (was £135)


Don’t ever forget about WH smith voucher codes when it comes to ordering books. The clearance lines you can access using WH Smith voucher codes contain vintage treats-a-plenty including this lovely pair…

Death Comes to Pemberley

Death Comes to Pemberley by PD James (Hardback) – £7.60 (was £18.99)

Mid-century Ads: Advertising from the Mad Men Era

Mid-Century Ads – Advertising From the Mad Men Era by Jim Heimann and Steven Heller - £14 (was £34.99)


There are plenty more discounted titles available using these The Book People voucher codes, The Hive Store voucher codes and WH Smith voucher – this is just the starting point for all those vintage-look books!

Autumn/Winter Trends with a Vintage Twist: 1960s Shift Dresses

As promised, here’s my second post about vintage-inspired autumn and winter 2014 trends and this week I’m looking at 1960s-style shift dresses. Yes, the Mad Men look is well and truly in – great news for pretty much any shape and size as a shift can accentuate all your best features as well as hide anything your want to keep hidden. I’ve gathered together some Rock My Vintage voucher codes, Asos voucher codes and Dorothy Perkins voucher codes and come up trumps…

Rock My Vintage voucher codes are a great place to start – this site organises items by era so if you’re looking for a specific decade then everything is in one place. Current Rock My Vintage voucher codes save you 8% on your order, but there are also plenty of sale bargains to be had…

Current Asos voucher codes get you up to 70% off sale items and hidden amongst the many, many deals are these three 60s-inspired numbers…

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know I like Dorothy Perkins voucher codes very much indeed, what with them offering truly excellent discounts as well as being up-to-the-minute trend-wise. Of course, when it comes to the 60s shift dress, this is no exception and with Dorothy Perkins voucher codes that get you £10 off when you spend £40 or more, you can afford to buy a selection…

Autumn/Winter Trends with a Vintage Twist: 70s Print Dresses

It’s that time of year again, where the air gets a bit nippy and thoughts begin to turn to autumn/winter clothes and more specifically in this case, Dorothy Perkins voucher codes, La Redoute voucher codes and Apricot voucher codes. Let me explain… I’ve had a look at what’s going to be in this autumn and what trends pay homage to style from the past and instead of giving you a general trend post, I’m going to spend the next few weeks delving into a few specific looks. This week – 70s-style print dresses…

To start with, I’ve taken a look at some current clearance bargains to see if there’s anything that fits in with this up and coming look, in this case, the current Dorothy Perkins voucher codes and Apricot voucher codes. Amongst the usual excellent Dorothy Perkins voucher codes is a current extra 10% off clearance dresses, and amongst these stunning clearance dresses, I have found…


Billie and Blossom Orange Aztec Print Maxi Dress

Billie and Blossom Orange Aztec Print Maxi Dress – was £35, then £20 and now £18 using Dorothy Perkins voucher codes

Jolie Moi Blue floral print maxi dress

Jollie Moi Blue Floral Print Maxi Dress – was £37.99, then £24 and now £19.20 using Dorothy Perkins voucher codes


Next up, with one of my favourite Apricot voucher codes (up to 65% off selected dresses), I’ve found these numbers that can help you find your inner 70s goddess…

Triangle Tile Print Keyhole Maxi Dress

Triangle Tile Print Keyhole Maxi Dress – was £29, now £17

Burgundy Folk Tile Dress

Burgundy Folk Tile Dress – was £22, now £15


Coral Geometric Print Maxi Dress

Coral Geometric Print Maxi – was £29, now £15

So you see, even though this trend relates to the new season, it’s always worth checking out current clearance sites to see if there are any hidden gems that were a bit ahead of their time. Dorothy Perkins vouchers codes and Apricot voucher codes are some of my personal favourites, but dig deeper if you so desire.

When it comes to new season discounts, La Redoute voucher codes came up with a great deal – 20% off their full price autumn and winter collection. This particular deal is valid until 24/08/14, but if you’re looking after this date, there are always plenty of other La Redoute voucher codes available. With this current crop of La Redoute voucher codes, I’ve found…



Silky Printed Crepe Shift Dress - £27 (£21.60 with discount)

Folk Print Loose Smock Dress

Folk Print Loose Smock Dress - £35 (£28 with discount)

Next week I’ll look at a new autumn/winter trend with a vintage twist and see what I can find…

Summer Footwear from Back in the Day

I’m talking more inspired by back in the day rather from actually back in the day, but by using these Brantano voucher codes, Daniel Footwear voucher codes and Soletrader voucher codes you can still get that 60s, 70, 80s and even 90s look (for the purposes of this post, I’m going to go with 90s being vintage - it was 20 years ago after all, even though that makes us all feel REALLY old). And now is very much the perfect time to pick up a summer footwear bargain in those sales…

With those fabulous Brantano voucher codes, you can take advantage of one of their occasional amazing discounts – up until the 30th July, you can use Brantano voucher codes to save a whopping 30% off the cost of your order. And even if you’re reading this AFTER that date, I’ve noticed they might still be offering a sneaky saving or two – keep your vintage-loving eyes peeled. After a quick peek, here are my top three Brantano picks…

Trini
Lotus Trini (were £60, now £42 with discount)

Limnos
Lotus Limnos (were £45, now £31.50 with discount)

Nerissa
Lotus Nerissa (were £50, now £35 with discount)


Daniel Footwear voucher codes do require you to have a few more pounds put aside but they’re still worth a look, especially if you want to get your hands on some designer brands for a bit less. And with Daniel Footwear voucher codes can get you up to 80% off selected pairs… I’ve gone with some 70s inspired wedge sandals and some classic Vivienne Westwood footwear to show you how you Daniel Footwear voucher codes can help you get a retro look…

Daniel Pink Bluestreak Wedge Sandals (were £99.99, now £48.99)

Vivienne Westwood Pink Melissa VW Lady Dragon Bow Shoes (were £149, now £67)


And lastly, those Soletrader voucher codes. They can get you up to 50% off selected styles, with everything from 60s boho flat sandals to 80s-inspired jelly shoes. Using these Soletrader voucher codes, I’ve picked out three pairs that cover a number of time periods and budgets…

SOLE Akari Sandals

Juju Jellies Babe Sandals
Juju Jellies Babe Sandals (were £26.99, now £25)

A Very Vintage Country Garden

We may have already seen off the longest day of the year, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to pretty-up your outdoors. I’ve found some great Homebase voucher codes, Ethical Superstore voucher codes and Gardens and Homes Direct voucher codes that will help you deck out your decking with some vintage-inspired pieces so your garden wouldn’t look out of place on a 1950s film set…

First up, garden furniture. Yes, it might be a bit expensive and you don’t get to use it all year round, but there really is nothing better than sitting out in the garden on a summer’s evening sipping your gin and tonic, and you can’t really put a price on that. So with these Homebase voucher codes, you can save up to 60% off selected products, which includes up to 1/3 off selected garden furniture items. And using these Homebase voucher codes, I’ve chosen these two substantial savings that are quite easy on the eye – the Lucca Garden Bench with Cushion (was £149.99, now £99.99) and the Amalfi Mosaic Bistro Garden Furniture Set (was £199.99, now £149.99).


Lucca Garden Bench with CushionAmalfi Mosaic Bistro Garden Furniture Set


But let’s not forget, you have to furnish your garden with all those little extras in order to get the vintage look just right. Some Ethical Superstore voucher codes will do the jobs just nicely thank you very much, because with the current Ethical Superstore voucher codes, you can get up to 75% off selected lines, which include these Traidcraft Terracotta Lanterns (was £16, now £10.40) and while you’re there, you might want to check out this rather attractive Chicken Feed Tin (£14.95), Tool & Tuck Tin (£19.95) and Greenhouse Caddy (£18.95).

Tool & Tuck TinGreenhouse Caddy - Lime Green

Gardens and Homes Direct voucher codes contain many hidden treasures – not only can you get 5% off your order, but there’s also up to 50% off selected items. In the latter camp, there’s this delightful Hidcote Wooden Trough Planter (was £24.99, now £19.99), but if you want to use the Gardens and Homes Direct voucher codes to have your pick of the entire range, I can highly recommend a Rectangular Planter and Trellis (£85.99 before discount) and the Tea Light Hurricane Lantern (£14.99 before discount).

In addition to these Homebase voucher codes, Ethical Superstore voucher codes and Gardens and Homes Direct voucher codes, there’s plenty out there on offer to help you create that vintage country garden look. Just follow the flowers!

Fantastic Vintage Inspired Tops

Today it’s all about tops. Fantastic vintage-inspired tops that you can purchase with the help of Yumi Direct voucher codes, Apricot voucher codes and Fever London voucher codes – all great retailers who like to put a bit of a vintage twist on their ranges. I’ve picked a few nice pieces that would fit in a number of different eras, most of them perfect paired with a pretty pencil skirt or possibly some 50s-style capri pants. Anyway, peruse and take your pick…

I recently rediscovered Fever London voucher codes and I’m now kicking myself for forgetting them in the first place. That is because Fever London voucher codes can save you up to 30% off selected purchases, including a pretty blouse or two. My pick of the bunch include this Hurlington Top in Rust (was £49.99, now £29.99), the Avebury Top in Navy/Red (was £29.99, now £19.99) and their Rosie Top in Navy/Cream (was £29.99, now £14.99) – all of these discounts are available with Fever London voucher codes at time of writing.


Hurlington Top RustAvebury Top Navy/RedRosie Top Navy/Cream

Yumi Direct voucher codes should be pit-stop on any vintage-lovers online browse, what with their quirky retro wares and unique styling. At present, using Yumi Direct voucher codes could save you up to 65% off your order, which may or may not include this Yumi Unicorn Print Shirt (was £32, now £16), their Uttam Boutique Printed Birds Blouse (was £32, now £16) and the Yumi Lace Front Top (was £45, now £30).

I am a lover of Apricot dresses, but I wouldn’t shun their top selection either, based on these picks. The smartest way of buying from their site is to use Apricot voucher codes, saving you a potential 65% off selected garments. Have a look at their Geometric Squares Smock Top (was £27, now £7), the Coral Birds Pussy Bow Blouse (was £26, now £15) and the Burgundy Dotted Diamonds Puff Top (was £27, now £10). Those are some rather astonishing prices you can access with Apricot voucher codes, I think you’ll agree.

Fever London voucher codes, Yumi Direct voucher codes and Apricot voucher codes are all easily accessible, so you’ve got no excuse not to beef up your summer wardrobe in the vintage blouse department. Next week – skirts!
