For the last two weeks Past Forward Retro was given the opportunity to use an empty unloved shop space in Wembley Central to advertise our business. We turned one of the dark and gloomy windows into a lush vintage haven and it looked fantastic.
Since then we have also found out for the month of December we have been given the go ahead to turn this amazing space into Past Forward Retro’s first pop up shop!!!!! We are so excited and cant wait to get in there and give the place a vintagious make over.
We open on the 3rd of December and will be having our private opening party on the 4th December. If you would like to join us on the 4th for drinks and cakes then please join our mailing list or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an invitation. This is an invite only event as we must keep an eye on the numbers of people attending.
We must say a big thank you to The Coming Soon Club http://thecomingsoonclub.wordpress.com/ in partnership with meanwhile space who has made this all possible.
More updates on the shop opening times, the address and new items for sale will follow in the next few weeks.
Look forward to seeing you in the new shop!

Imagine stumbling across one of these beauties in a charity shop! Sarah and I have a rule that we shouldn’t buy things because they are ‘funny’ or ‘ironic’ as they probably will end up unworn in a suitcase under your bed. However it’s a rule that I would not follow if I found an original Apple sweatshirt or one of those caps! To be honest it’s a rule that we rarely follow!
Hello, as spring has sprung a little early this year we thought we’d help inspire you this season with some of our new items.
It’s all about chunky jewellery in my opinion, so if your wanting a bit of bling this 1980′s set of enameled earrings, necklace and brooch by Monet will definitely hit the spot!!
It’s all about bright colours and this fantastic 1960s/70′s Christian Dior Scarf, although has muted tones has a splash of bright pink which makes it the perfect accessorie for your spring ensemble.
A wonderful pink 1950′s handmade dress, a little heavy to wear in the hight of summer but perfect for a slightly cooler spring evening.
Having a fantastically bright fitted red jacket in your wardrobe is a must have. This 1980′s BICCI jacket looks great with black skinny jeans again great for a Sring evening.

If you haven’t already had afternoon tea at The Berkeley Hotel, located in Knightsbridge London, then you really are missing out!!
This is not a traditional english tea service, it is so much better and once you go you’ll never want to go anywhere else.
Situated in the gorgeous Caramel room, you are welcomed by beautifully presented members of staff, the girls wearing a purple 50′s style taffeta dress and the boys in white coats and black bow ties.
All the food is displayed on Paul Smith china and when you sit down you get given a very simple but elegant menu to choose from there very large selection of teas. I went for Chocolate Mint truffle, this was very strong and does not require milk as i later found out!! Once settled you are presented with a lovely selection of sandwiches and wrap. If your a veggie they are most accommodating, serving my friend a lovely selection which was not on the menu.
Do not be fooled by the small portions, you can have as many plates of sandwiches and cake trays as your heart desires, yes as many as you like!!! It’s really more like a glorified buffet. I decided to restrain myself and only had one plate of sandwiches as i was keen to try out the cakes and mini savouries.
Each cake is beautifully crafted into small pieces of art, it almost feels a bit of a crime to eat them. However you get over that rather quickly as these fantastic fashion inspired cakes not only look superb but taste divine!! I had the Autumn/Winter collection however if you go in the summer they will have a completely different collection this is due to the fact that there fashion inspirations are from current collections on the catwalk.
This is the best place in London to go for afternoon tea and one of the best priced at only £37.50!
