I usually try and give a whole lot of info on the brands I post about, but that’s proving a little difficult with The Ragged Priest, so I’ll tell you what I know.
a) I’ve been stalking their reworked vintage pieces on eBay for agesss
b) I just found out they had a website too, and they’re stocked at Topshop
c) There is no way to describe their knitwear other than absolutely BEAUTIFUL
d) I’m pretty sure they’re from Essex
e) Their blog is pretty good too
Hmmm, five facts, that wasn’t too bad. Here are some of the lookbook pics I’ve been lusting over…
I planned to clear my wardrobe as soon as my exams were over, however the celebrations went on a little longer than I expected, but I finally got around to it this weekend! I’ve put 40 items up, some have never been worn, many have only been worn once or a few times. Most of them are high street brands (can’t bring myself to part with designer at the moment) including Topshop, H&M, River Island, American Apperal and ASOS, and there are a few pieces of vintage. Also, everything except one item starts at 99p, so they are definitely worth a look! You can view all of the items here.
Here are a few of them…

Prints, prints, prints, oh how they brighten up my day, week, year. As far as prints go it can be difficult in terms of what’s in, what isn’t and how to wear them right. This makes Hawaiian prints are a must have in my eyes this season with two simple rules. 1, if it’s hawaiian, it works. 2. Just pair it with something simple. Dresses with plain shoes, shirts with denim shorts and jackets with pop colour dresses. There are some great pieces on the high street, but have a rummage through your nearest vintage store for the better, unique pieces.
A few favourites include:
Topshop Hawaiian Print Dress, £25, in-store only.
Motel Emilia Dress, £52.
Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry, Hawaiian Print Short Sleeve Shirt, £82.
Sugarhill Boutique, Hawaiian Tropic Shorts, £18 (Was £35)
Beyond Retro, 1990’s Short Dress, £24.
Beyond Retro, Must Have Casual Coat, £20.
T-Bags Tropical Print Jersey Dress, The Outnet, £77.50 (Was £155)
Oh and here is one I put on eBay earlier…
Vintage Hawaiian Print Cotton Jumper

This post isn’t my usual sort, but I just want to get the word out. I had a wardrobe clearout a few weeks ago and have finally got around to putting things on eBay, there is about 35 items on there at the moment and roughly 20 left to add, which I’m hoping to get done tonight. All starting prices are 99p, it’s mainly high street and some vintage, but I may put a few designer pieces on there tonight if I can bring myself to part from them. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get bidding…
