Vintage Fashion Brand: Rokit London

"Keepin' it Vintage since 1986"
If you have been to London and visited Camden Town and not visited the key, iconic, vintage stores in the area then you haven't "Lived!". Camden Town is known for it's Vintage markets, hipster shops, bars and restaurants. It is notorious for its music gigs and even the home town to the one and only Amy Winehouse.
When I first moved to London in 2011 I lived ten minutes away from Camden and so I know the area very well. Rokit London was one of my favourite stores to shop at as a fashion student I enjoyed mixing Vintage pieces with high street brands and I still do to this day! It gives an outfit that unique diversity edge with timeless pieces such as Vintage Levi shorts, an oversized denim jacket or a band T-shirt.
Over the past 30 years Rokit London has recycled over a million tonnes of discarded clothing and accessories to become one of the most popular Vintage stores for the style savvy Londoners with a worldwide online audience.
Rokit Began as a stall in London's iconic Camden Market in 1986 specialising in vintage denim thrifted from American cowboys. The demand was so fierce that within weeks the stall was exchanged to a two storey shop on Camden high street where it still stands today. Since then three further stores have been opened on Brick Lane and Covent Garden.
Behind the scenes Rokit's team of vintage experts are all based under one roof in the UK's biggest vintage warehouse. Hundreds of one of a kind pieces are hand selected and sent daily to their four London stores and added to their website.
Each and every garment is freshly laundered,pressed and carefully mended if needs be. Unusable styles are transformed by the Rokit recycled crew who create and customise pieces in the Rokit workshop and into seasonal trend focused designs alongside handcrafting collections from found fabrics.

Style Tips: What to wear on date night

Style Tips for: Date Night
I think we have all been in that predicament where a guy has finally picked up the courage to ask you out on a date we then  casually reply "Sure,Yeah why not", then when it comes to the date night we have the realisation of what we have actually signed up for. Then the overthinking, panic and endless flow of questions hits us, "What do I wear?", "I have no clothes!," "I am NOT going on this date!", "I didn't want a boyfriend anyway!", "Why did I agree to this stupid date?", "I am content being lonely and watching Netflix on my own", "I don't need a man, I am a strong, independent woman!",(I think you get the message).

After maybe a ten minute break down we decide to pick up the phone and call one of the girls for style advice and maybe to calm down the nerves in which they pretty much force you verbally/mentally to go on the date and stop acting a fool using the exact lines of "You can't be a Nun forever". So we pick up the courage (Dutch Courage i.e a glass of wine)and rade the wardrobe.
So what should you wear on a date? I am not a dating expert but I think one thing I get right is first dates seeing that 2 out of 3 Boyfriends pretty much made me their girlfriend after the first date! Some may think that what you wear on a first date doesn't matter, these people are probably still single!Do not listen to them.Of course it matters its just like a job interview you are judged on your appearance and how you present yourself. Do you really think this guy is going to think ,"This girl is Girlfriend or even Wifey material" if you show up to your date in your PJ's, Tracksuit, Hair unbrushed, no make-up on or even just basic clothes, basically looking like you really don't care?NO! First impressions is everything and how you present yourself will increase your chances in this guy finding you attractive and even a second date and lets face it thats what you want at the end of the day if not then why did you agree to the date in the first place.

My advice to a first date outfit is find out the location and activity of the date. If its a surprise date then keep it smart/casual meaning skinny jeans, nice top and heels. Do not over do it in wearing a bodycon dress! I would give any dress,mini skirts, mini shorts, lycra,latex,sheer,lace,low-cut tops and bodies a miss on the first date. It implies your trying to hard to impress. Anything that is too sexy cross off,you want to leave something to the imagination and you want to look tasteful and classy someone that he can take home to meet his family (GF material).

Always wear heels on your dates,your a lady so dress like one trainers and flats are a no and men are sexually attracted to heels (FACT).Heels also dress up any outfit even if you are dressed in just jeans and a top!
