Nothing makes me prouder than one of my friends doing something creative, exciting, adventurous. The gorgeous Natasha Bailie – whose impeccable vintage style you may remember from my massive Vintage at Goodwood post last summer – has just launched her first ever ready-to-wear collection, a small range of 50’s inspired dresses, exclusively for sale on her own online vintage emporium.
