Vintage does Fetish









A huge trend hitting the catwalks this Autumn/Winter has been The New Fetish. We must say  we love this look, with the likes of Lanvin, Victor &Rolf and Louis Vuitton being our favourites. This trend is very much cracking the whip on this Autumn/Winter.

Here we decided to take this fetish look and give it an Annie and the Mannequin overhaul. We have decided to go super vintage glam whilst still keeping a slightly riskier twist.

Black layers of Leather, lace, chiffon and Faux fur creates a glamorous vintage take on Fetish.

We have Entered this into the ASOS "how will you wear it" competition. With a chance to be featured in their magazine and £250 to spend on an ASOS wardrobe, we are capturing and entering every Autumnn/Winter trend "The Annies" Style.

This week at Annie and the Mannequins we have taken inspiration from up and coming trends and put together a capsule collection based on the 'boy factor'. We are sticking to our true cutesy charm by injecting a serious dose of 'girl meets boy' appeal to our collections. We are mixing things up with lots of girly classic peices. Playful polka dots appear on blouses and look super cute with tailored boyish high waisted shorts or trousers, while girly knits in girly shades are layered with statement collar blouses and ditsy florals.
Whilst we are still loving that the sun is here (well on the odd day) this week we have put together a capsule collection packed full of wardrobe staples and on trend key peices that will see you through the rest of summer and right the way through to autumn/winter.

Hello New Season




As we mentioned in our previous post we have been busy capturing A/W looks for the ongoing ASOS look competition. With new influences from Chanel, Stella McCartneys and Tommy hilfiger we thought we would try a more masculine suit style.

We started with our vintage camel tailored tapered trouser, added a classic white shirt with an Annie and the Mannequins signature peak collar teamed with a tailored blazer layered over a black chiffon kimono (worn upside down for better draping). We finished of the look with a skinny necktie and brooch with tassel detailing.

After browsing all our pictures we have decided that this is the outfit we are going to enter into the competition. Now we just have to pick the picture. Yikes. We've narrowed it down to the 4 pictures above. Which ones your fav?

All your help choosing the picture is muchos appreciated :)

Poppy Burst






We found the perfect spot for our photos today, right behind our house so we took the opportunity to take a few outfit snaps. We picked up this gorgeous poppy orange blazer this weekend along with lots of other vintage goodies and cant wait to post them all on eBay for all our fans. We love to put together vintage outfits that reflect the seasons trends and we think we done ourselves proud with this outfit. What does everyone think?

Inspired byMarc Jacobs and  Jil Sanders citrus brights we teamed this blazer with our vintage high waisted nude shorts and stripey basic tee. Hope you all had a lovely weekend and have enjoyed our outfit post.
