Here is a final guest post from one of my favorite blogging duos, Aimee and Harriett of Bright Young Twins. I stumbled upon their beautiful blog quite recently and I found myself going back through the entire archive to see every photo because I was so inspired by their head-to-toe vintage style. These girls are too lovely to be true and their 1910's meets 1920's meets 1930's meets a-dash-of-everything-else makes me swoon every time. If I could see their outfits every single day for the rest of my years I would be a happy lady!
Hello there fabulous, we're Aimee and Harriett and we write a blog called Bright Young Twins together. We blog about our lives, clothes and friends with a handful of bitterness and a heathy amount of swearing. When lovely Ashely asked us to blog with the theme of 'Fancy Fine' we had to put our thinking caps on. We're so grateful for what we have but we live in the rather humble surroundings of East London so 'fancy' is not really a word that describes us, contrary to popular belief!
Fortunately my twenty-first Birthday was just around the corner. I'm not really one for fuss or parties so Harriett, our close friend Erika along with my boyfriend Sam accompanied me to Columbia Road Flower Market and the pub. What's fancier than cider and flowers?

Those guys bought me so many flowers that I struggled to carry them home! I had an amazing day, the only thing that could have made it better was to have had some missing friends here that are currently away from us.
I'm so lucky to have such banging mates!
STAY COOL KITTENS!
Aimee and Harriett
