Feeling Cosy With Rocket Vintage

Oh hello there, my ugly mug and my actual body are making a rare appearance over here as i’d like to tell you about my latest wardrobe addition that I kid you not, has not left my shoulders since I received it a week ago.

With the dark nights drawing in at 3pm and a very distinct nip in the air now we are passed Halloween and Bonfire Night, I am starting to feel a little swirl of excitement for the pending festive season! The end of November marks my 24th birthday and following that, the Christmas tree will be up and i’ll be in full on Chrimbo mode!

It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas!

It occurred to me the other day, following a conversation about our office Christmas party that I don’t actually own a Christmas jumper, usually I rock a red lip and a bit of glitter but that’s no fun is it? So when the team at Rokit Vintage contacted me to see if i’d like to have a look at their Christmas jumper collection I bit their hand off!

I’ve collected vintage treasures from Rokit over the last 5 years and it is one of my genuine go-to stops whenever i’m down in London (Camden shop specifically!) to scour for something unique and sassy.

If you’re not familiar with Rokit Vintage yourself, since 1986 they have channeled their passion for awesome clothing into sourcing hundreds and hundreds of one-of-a-kind vintage pieces before repairing and laundering them ready to be loved again. Suitably, they started off in Camden market before expanding out further into London and of course online!
History lesson done, I want to show you my new, festive winter cardigan from Rokit! I found it in the Christmas section of the site which is home to loads and loads of vintage Christmas jumpers from the twee, to the classic. They regularly update the section too so you’ll be sure to find something you’re looking for and every piece is one of a kind, so there will be no worries of your colleague turning up in the same jumper on Xmas jumper day at work!
Now, you might be wondering why I didn’t choose a classically tacky awesome Xmas jumper and the simple answer was, I was sad that I could only wear it for a few weeks of the year! So instead, I went for a more versatile, festive winter cardigan that features sprigs and spruces of Christmas tree on it! This uber cute and very comfortable box cardigan is from the 90s, and as a 90s kid I like that it’s been around as long as I have! I have to tell you though, it doesn’t smell like it is, if you’re concerned about that ‘preloved’ scent, I can assure you Rokit’s clothing doesn’t have it. Though, for me there is something a little endearing about the foisty, musky scent of vintage clothes
One thing I must also mention is that Rokit’s delivery is super, super speedy and their products are packaged beautifully and inclusive of a free printed tote bag! Always handy if you ask me!
