I am very excited to be featuring an inspiring young woman who manages to balance studying with running her own online vintage clothing store, Streaking Scarlett. Lauren tells Style On The Run all about running her vintage store and her thoughts on the future of vintage clothing. Be sure to check out her store here for great vintage pieces at purse friendly prices!

Please give a brief bio of yourself and your company?
I’m a 22 year old tea drinking fashion addict art student. Currently living & studying in Manchester.

Streaking Scarlett Vintage is a small online eBay shop selling trendsetting statement vintage pieces from past eras for today’s fashion loving girls.

Why did you decide to set up a business specialising in vintage clothing?
It just kind of happened for me; I inherited a load of my Nan’s old clothes and decided to put them up on eBay. The shop has grown from here. I’m really surprised at how popular the shop has become, it’s really exciting.

What qualities do you think makes a garment a great addition to your shop?
I think it is important to sell items in the shop that are wearable for today’s generation, picking out statement pieces that can be worn with ease.

What is your favourite era for clothing and why?
I’d have to say the 60’s it’s that whole bohemianism spirit of the era that I just adore. I love all those romantic dress with large bell sleeves and covered in pretty lace.

What would a typical day for you include?
Waking up around mid morning, kick starting the day with a cup of tea then hit the emails. Check my day plan in my diary and then depending on the day I usually take a trip to the local post office, maybe alter some pieces or do some listings.

What do you think the future of vintage clothing holds, and are there any pieces that you would recommend people hold onto in their wardrobes?

I think vintage will continue to be popular. I would say hold onto anything from a designer; any one-offs from collections like Barbara Hulanicki for Topshop and those staple well made pieces like pretty dresses and coats/jackets. Also hold onto any vintage pieces you own in your wardrobes, as they will only increase in value with age though you’ll need to preserve them well!

Are there any blogs that you’re loving reading at the moment?
Be frassy, Bohemian Musings and Celladoor!

Finally, would you like to take this opportunity to plug anything?!
My blog and my shop – enjoy!
