Hello, my name is Hayley and I am the owner of Plaid and Lace Vintage. I have always been a lover of fashion and that love soon turned into vintage fashion. I have worn vintage clothing for as long as I can remember (I can’t remember when I first started!) Its a true passion of mine, I am self taught and have studied various eras. I don’t really stick to one era, if a dress catches my eye and I love it then I will buy it.
If I had to pick one era I would say 1940's. I just love the whole look. People really put an effort into putting outfits together and looked so polished. I wish I had the energy to be like that every day!
I'm originally from London where I studied Visual Merchandising and worked for a number of high street retailers before moving to Sheffield 12 years ago continuing to work in retail and merchandising.
Everything you see on here has been handpicked by me. I don't bulk buy. All dresses are cared for and mended by myself if needed, I recently took an evening class in dressmaking to be able to restore and bring these wonderful dresses back to life.
Buying stock to sell is a complete joy and a real hobby of mine. I love nothing more then spending a weekend trawling around charity shops, vintage fairs and antiques centres.
I'll update you all on here about my vintage stock buying travels!
If there is something in particular you are after please do get in contact with me where we can have a conversation I can source something special for you. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope you enjoy shopping with Plaid and Lace as much as I enjoy running it. x
