Hidden Hearts Accessories Range

The release of our collection is drawing closer and closer! Last night I released photos of the accessories up for grabs in the Hidden Hearts collection in an album on our Facebook page. Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in some of the pieces, so far the reception has been great...I always love to know what you do and don't like! I know you are all eagerly awaiting the release of Hidden Hearts, so to become one of the first few people to see photographs of the pieces going for sale on Friday, be sure to become a fan of our Facebook page.

All Bijou Vintage followers receive instant updates about whats happening within the business, making them first in the know.

With the weather so gloomy the past few days, all I have wanted to do is lay in front of the gas heater and read my magazines...but there has been so much work to do it has almost been impossible! I certainly hope that when you finally get the chance to view the Hidden Hearts Collection in it's entirety on Friday (Thursday for our Facebook Fans) it meets all your expectations :)

I will leave you with a snippet of some of the pieces featured in the Hidden Hearts Accessories Range, I'd love to know what you all think.

Ps. Just for fun I have added a list of my Top 3 Picks, Enjoy!

1. Vintage Straw Boater Hat

I guarantee that you will be seeing plenty more of these vintage boater hats as we move into the Spring/Summer Season. This piece is perfect for an afternoon picnic, or even lunch with your girlfriends...the fact that it is also completely practical is just an added bonus ;)

2. Leopard Animal Bracelet

There is no denying that this bracelet is oh so gorgeous! Not only is this bracelet an incredibly unique vintage find, it is a piece that will finish off any weekend winter outfit. Pair it with a simple black ensemble and you're set!

3. Brown Buffalo Leather Bag

This bag is perfect for the upcoming festival season. Not only is it constructed from buffalo leather making it increadibly durable and resistant to the harshest of surfaces, it is also increadibly practical. With an adjustable strap and hidden compartments for your phone, money and bank cards, this bag is big enough for all you'r goodies, making it the perfect accessory for anyone's wardrobe!

Everything Happens For a Reason

You can't help but love this phrase. When everything around you seems to be going all wrong and your on the verge of a complete breakdown, these simple five words just seem to restore every ounce of faith you once held for the future...whatever it may be.

'Everything Happens For A Reason' seemed to be soundtrack playing to my life this week. When I first launched Bijou Vintage just a few short weeks ago, I had such a strong vision as to what I wanted to achieve; blog twice a week, take amazing photographs everyday, have a collection up for sale within the first two weeks...the list goes on. It is not until 'life' (that being my two jobs!) got in the way, that it seemed impossible for me to achieve the goals I had set for myself in such a short period of time. After failed attempts at shooting pictures for my eBay store, my world broke and reality seemed to hit. There was no way I was going to be able to show you all my collection yet, it isn't perfect...I would just have to wait until next week.

Although I am devastated at the fact the release of Hidden Hearts has been delayed, I can't help but think that this may have happened for a reason. Maybe I will stumble across a single vintage piece that will top off this already stunning collection. Perhaps I will be inspired by something that will encourage me to produce even bigger and better things...who knows? But that's just the beauty of it really.

I'd like to thank the person that made me see clearly this week. I hope that they know that the future holds endless possibilities for wherever they may dream to go. As for me, I'd like to think that this will be the longest I will ever go between blog posts, so stay tuned for all the latest updates from Bijou Vintage in the upcoming week.
