Vintage Beachwear!

4I5A6154As the suns is finally out this seemed like the perfect time to do this blog post! I was asked a few months ago by the lovely Alison of Silly Old Sea Dog if I’d like to get involved with her latest shoot/article for Vintage Life Magazine. Her theme was ‘Beside the Seaside’ and you can read the full article about vintage swinwear in the latest issue of the magazine, available here. I’ve known both Alison and her brand for a few years now so I jumped at the chance to get involved and sent over several of my vintage inspired turbans in summery pastels so she could style them up as part of the look. Below are a selection of the fantastic pictures from the shoot on Fistral Beach in Cornwall.

Sarah’s Doo-Wop Dos turbans are made from stretch fabric and then knotted and sewn in place so the are easy to wear and go on like a headband, prices start from just £20 plus P&P. They are perfect for the beach or just a great look for lazy hair days! To order you own vintage style turban just email me at
