'Gorgeously illustrated, well designed, top quality and has a high cuteness factor. ... Love it! It would certainly make a delightful gift.'
Favourite Vintage Finds
'The Vintage Fashion Journal really is a beautiful little companion. It fits into my handbag perfectly and goes with me everywhere. I love having Niki's pretty illustrations next to my boring "Buy more nail varnish remover" type lists. I almost kind of wish I had two copies, one to write in and one to keep nice. I'll be buying one for all my friend's Christmas presents (shhh...) so I'll maybe nap myself another one then!'
The Vintage Fashion Journal
'A lovely little notebook perfect as a diary or to jot down your notes when trawling through vintage boutiques, galleries, old-school tearooms and flea markets for inspiration. Illustrator Niki Pilkington's drawings of contemporary retro looks and retro accessories are beautifully done, and there are also amusing quotes from famous style icons such as Coco Chanel or Elsa Schiaparelli. It's also got a little ribbon to mark your pages and a cloth cover - very handy if, like me, you're using it to jot down vintage baking recipes!'
Queens of Vintage
'We absolutely adore The Vintage Fashion Journal! Full of delightful illustrations of vintage treasures, bound in cloth and finished with a red ribbon!'
'This journal is designed to be the perfect accompaniment to the whimsical vintage girl. I can easily see Zooey Deschanel using this notebook to dream up more perplexing questions for Siri, then sighing over her Darjeeling and looking through her fringe into the middle distance. If you're a vintage lover looking for a notebook that elevates list making from mundanity to, um, FUNdanity, then this is a good 'un. It would also make a lovely Christmas gift.'
'Stealing my heart this month is The Vintage Fashion Journal, an illustrated homage to more than just fashion, but timeless style. By choosing vintage trinkets such as mismatched crockery and collected buttons, and sketching them on the page, fashion illustrator du jour, Niki Pilkington, has caught the mood of a generation then coloured it in with a felt-tip pen'
Anastasia Grabova, V & OK
'This journal has gorgeous drawings of fashion trends and retro accessories from the 1940s to the 1980s, along with fun quotes from famous style icons, not to mention loads of blank pages just waiting for you to fill up.'
FIDM Fashion Club
'With super-cute, retro fashion sketches commissioned by fashion illustrator Niki Pilkington, who has collaborated with brands such as UGG and Topshop, this journal is the perfect place to stash your shopping wish list, outfit ideas and more.' iVillage
