Oh Manchester, My Manchester! There is a look that never goes out!

From ModCloth Writing Team Intern, Amy Cockcroft:

Maybe I’m just missing my native city, but I think this girl pictured in Manchester, England is absolutely dazzling! From her high-waisted fruit cocktail pants to her cute print tee and her belt, denim jacket, and shoes in between, this girl’s entire vintage ensemble is engaging and boisterous. Manchester’s own Northern Quarter, where you can get your Smiths vinyls from Piccadilly Records, drink in the Dry Bar, and shop in the dozens of vintage stores, is the center for an alternative and bohemian culture and exudes an atmosphere that her style reflects sublimely. Some girls’ vintage style is better than other girls’ vintage style, it’s true, but this girl is definitely at the top of the list! Keep your eye on our vintage, one of a kind items to create a similiarly captivating look, and don’t forget the staple Meadowlark Jacket!

About Richard

When not tapping at the computer keyboard for ModCloth, Richard spends his time playing music and dreaming of composing the perfect soundtrack to an epic gothic western film set on a distant, dusty planet, where the cowboys ride rocket-powered motorcycles instead of horses.

    It’s the Arndale in Manchester!
    The outfit needs a top in a solid colour.

    Oh, I’m sorry Baz. I was sure this was in the Arndale. Can I ask where abouts in Liverpool you think it was? Thanks! :)

    I’m from Manchester but I live in London. I’ve travelled all over the world and there’s still nowhere I love like Manchy. xx
