So we did mention in our recent posts that we hadn't blogged in so long because of some projects that we had been working on for some time, well..(drum roll please) voila!!! We are thrilled to unveil to you, the exclusive photos from our very first look-book which we titled 'Orange Soul' after the brand.

Since our inception in January 2014, we had yet to formally introduce the brand creatively, as a treasure trove, the perfect destination for all true vintage lovers, and others with an eye for timeless, eccentric, one-of-a-kind stylish pieces. Thus, we created the Orange Soul Look-book, and what better way to begin 2015? Happy New year darling.

Set against our beloved brand theme of burnt orange and a vintage monochrome layout, the Look-book features a timeless collection of sophisticated vintage blouses and jackets, exclusive cocktail vintage dresses, stylish retro dresses, colorful; eccentric vintage blazers and bold retro prints.

We are so excited to finally be able to unveil this Look-book to you, we put in everything to create a Look-book that said all the things we couldn't quite say with words. 
We worked with an excellent team of highly talented creatives to birth this work of Art, and we hope you enjoy every bit of it as much as we enjoyed creating it. 

All items are available for order, subject of course to availability, but hey, vintage pieces are one-of (one piece only) so hurry, items selling out fast : ) 
We've named every piece in the look-book to help you identify them, look out for the size/description guide for each item below. You'll also find our contact details below.

What's your favorite look? We'd really love to hear what you think in the comments.

'And the world kept silent for Solange Knowles'..The Wedding,The Details,The Pictures.

Culled from the internet.
“There is a gift within you, so priceless and rare. No other person exists who has the exact same thing you carry on your inside. Don’t try to water it down so that the world can accept you. Don’t try to cover it up so that you can be like everyone else. Don’t try to share it with someone who cannot understand it. One day someone will find you, who was created for that very gift you carry, and together you will create magic. Stay original, stay Orange, and eventually, the world will make way for you; whoever you are.” SoulOrangeVintage.

As I scroll through this post, it shocks me how I suddenly managed to go full-on Oprah on you guys, I promise it was never my intention when I began, and I have no idea where all that came from, LOL! Nevertheless, I hope it moves something within you, like it did me. It would be such a pleasure to hear your thoughts on this; well, somewhat lengthy one, please express your views in the comments.

About Soul Orange Vintage

‘’The woman with the orange soul is deep, unconventional and very at home with the unfamiliar. She is not afraid of a little madness and quirk. She is unsatisfied with the ordinary, unafraid to be the truth even if it is unpopular. You can tell when she walks by, with eyes full of wonder, she will not conform, she breaks free from the crowd, and walks the path she created for herself.” – SoulorangeVintage.
