Store Review

Gossip Store: ''Its Worth Talking About''

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well and you are happy with your goals for the week, if you are not pleased with your week. I will like you to seat back, relax and reflect on the happy moments in your life and remember that life is one step at a time to get to where you want to be. According to Joseph Campbell ''Find a place where there is joy and the joy will burn out the pain''. I hope this post will cheer you up and make you interested in the information I am about to give on this blog. 

I was walking through the city center of Leeds,UK looking for new outfit pieces to put in my idea book and I saw this vintage store called Gossip. As I walked into the store, I was surprised by the accessories and design of the store, it had this vintage feel, with pictures of vintage celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and African antiques that greatly inspired my future fashion posts. I walked around the store, looking at the jewelry, bags, clutches and shoes, they were quality materials inspired by pieces of famous designers like Vivienne Westwood, Celine and Alexander McQueen. These items were sold at inexpensive prices which is suitable for students, workers or people who are on a strict budget or do not want to spend too much money on fashion items. I was pleased with the quality of the items I saw in the store because they looked similar to the items we see on models in the runway. Also, I imagined the pieces in one or two future outfits I would wear to go around the city and I used one or two of Gossip items to style some previous outfits that you all have seen in on my blog[Vintage Mix and A story to tell] and I took the photos of those outfits in the store. Gossip pieces are suitable for both casual and evening outfits, each item have individual characters that give a statement to what you are wearing, I was fascinated by the interior decoration of the store and was surprised that such a small retail store could carry such character.

Mission and Vision of Gossip

Gossip store was opened last summer with the mission of providing fashion accessories and selected clothes all in line with the concept of providing boutique clothes without boutique prices. The Gossip store sells its brand items exclusively. The items of this store are carefully selected by the brand owner,his selection of items for the store is determined by his mission for the boutique. The vision held by the brand owner for Gossip is to incorporate a men fashion line called 'SHOUT' to his store. Also, he has a mid-season sale around the corner, so if you live around Leeds you could visit his store.

What I think about the store

The Gossip store is not like your regular vintage store where you buy old items but this store has its vintage items with a modern feel and a touch of African decor that appeals to me. I love the statement  jewelry and accessories in the store, they are affordable, chic, and classy. The store sells clothing, but I wasn't really interested in the outfits because it wasn't suitable for my curvy nature. However, the store is good anyway and I did a video of the store.I would like you guys to feel free to drop your feedback  of the post in the comment section.




Thanks for reading and have a blessed life.

Best Wishes,
Peace.
