So last week I told you about my visit to Birmingham I mentioned visiting Digbeth and the wonderful Cow vintage store. Housed in an old warehouse, Cow doesn't give you the most typical shopping experience. Its swinging rails and outfits hung by chains makes it feel almost industrial but the abundance of colour, pattern and texture is vibrant enough to juxtapose this. This post is pretty picture heavy but it was all so pretty!

There are up and down points to Cow. One of my pet-hates is 'vintage' stores that sell average second-hand clothes that you could get in a charity shop but for an extortionate price. That saying, most of the items you would be pleased to find in a thrift store and they are much much more appealingly organised. In addition the 'rework' items are great. There were bright logo t-shirts changed into loads of different 90s style crops, tie-dye in abundance and my favourite items: shirts made in to dresses with bleach detail. You can see loads of their products online or visit their shops in Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester or Nottingham. Have you been to any cool shops lately?
