Shipping US to UK (and beyond) made easier - myMallbox review

Shipping US to UK - myMallBox review

I'm sure everyone who lives in the UK and loves vintage reproduction as much as I do has that same sinking feeling when you see something advertised by a US retailer you fall in love with... Even more so if it's e.g. Besame, who don't ship overseas (although I think they're about to change that), right?

Step up, myMallBox! I'd heard of these 'interim couriers' - for want of a better phrase - before, who allow you to ship items to their US address and then they'll arrange for delivery to you in the UK (and beyond), but from what I knew of them many charge for their part of the service. Once you start adding up that fee plus the shipping cost you'd still need to pay, they become a bit too expensive for the casual user like me. What's good about myMallBox is that you don't pay a fee like this, you just pay for your shipping. Oh and that they ship to any country in the world, not just the UK!

myMallBox gave me a credit to try their service out and it didn't take long for me to spot the first US item I wanted to buy; a pair of glittery sunglasses from Unique Vintage. Side note: I've got a weird new obsession with glittery cateye sunglasses. Since buying this first pair I've bought a second and my attitude is currently Pokemon levels of 'gotta catch 'em all' - whenever I see them, I buy them. Anyway, back to this purchasing experiment! I ordered following myMallBox's instructions (a little bit buried, but I found them in the end) and about a week later I got an email alert saying my item had arrived, which was in a day of my tracking with the retailer, Unique Vintage, telling me it had been delivered. 

I went to the myMallBox website and selected my item for shipping, followed the process, but for a reason I can't remember now navigated away from the page just before I hit the 'go' button and then had a nightmare finding it on the system again as it disappeared from my 'My Packages' view. Top tip - don't do that! Anyway, eventually I found it again, went through the process and selected a cheap shipping option (you'll get a few, some faster than others) and waited expectantly for my parcel to arrive. Which it did, within a couple of weeks. Success!

I'd deliberately picked a cheap option so that I'd get to have another go with a second purchase. Having spotted yet more things I wanted from Unique Vintage, this time swimwear for the minimoon and honeymoon, another order in and I waited for it to show in myMallBox. And waited. But unlike the first it didn't go into my account for a while. I checked my Unique Vintage tracking number and saw it was delivered. I gave it a few days, then I contacted myMallBox to find out what was going on. It wasn't easy to find this contact info, which I wasn't overjoyed about. Anyway, they got back very quickly and what do you know, my package appeared in my account. I picked a faster service this time because I was hoping my items would get there before my minimoon and hurrah, they did. 

Apart from that hiccup and I still don't know what the hold-up was really, I've found this service pretty handy. The shipping rates offer more flexibility than most retailers do and where it really comes into its own is the consolidation and re-packaging service they offer. If you have several orders you can have them boxed together to save money on shipping, which is pretty handy. I haven't used this but I know someone who has and it worked swimmingly.

Despite the issue above, I've used them again for a recent order and I think it's a really good idea - particularly for getting your hands on something that only ships to US addresses.

Glittery 50s cat eye style sunglasses

Pros
  • You're not forced to stick to one expensive shipping option as per most retailers
  • You can order several different packages and myMallBox will consolidate and ship them together, or put them into a smaller parcel, to help keep costs down
  • Many companies that won't ship to the UK will happily ship to your myMallBox US address - particularly handy for cosmetics where this often applies
Cons
  • Regardless of the problem I mentioned, there seems to be a delay in terms of when the item arrives at your suite vs when it becomes available to ship. Once it's on its way it's all good, but otherwise it does add some extra time in. This isn't the option you'd pick for an express delivery or if you're impatient (which I admit to being!)
  • You'll still pay customs as per the value you declare via myMallBox, who will put it with the packing info. Of course, that's on you, but I'm not encouraging any law-breaking...
  • Not all US companies will allow you to ship to this kind of warehouse. I haven't run into one yet but I know they exist

What do you think; would you use a service like this?

Outfit: summer favourites

I really love trying out unusual colour combinations and then realising 'whoa, they really go!' - this outfit was one of those moments. In the summer, I love wearing red (well, that's an all year thing really) and mint green, so it was only natural to put them together at some point.

I'm just really pleased at how it worked out! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I can find so many ways to be creative with summer outfits - a skill and desire that doesn't seem to stick with me into winter. The other great thing about this outfit is this top, which isn't a top at all, it's a very old dress that is far too short for me to wear without being arrested for indecent exposure. Given that I'm 5'1", I'm baffled at who could wear this 'dress' as an actual dress. As a long top though, it's doing a pretty good job and I loved wearing it like this.

The skirt was from the days when Tara Starlet was still around and they had an outlet on eBay. My oh my, I picked up some total bargains from that outlet shop that I still regularly wear. This skirt was either £5 or £10, either way given I've worn it a million times since I bought it, it more than earned the investment. The only thing about it is boy the Tara Starlet sizing was SO out of whack. This skirt is a 10 and it's smaller than all of my size 8 skirts. I can just about wear it with my waist cinched, if I don't plan to eat a huge meal. If you ever see a Tara Starlet swing skirt in this belted design come up on re-sale, do yourself a big favour and ask the seller what the waist measurement is. I've got a second style like this and it has the exact same problem.

Anyway, we've had a pretty good summer so far, for the UK at least. I mean, we always have more cloud than anyone wants, but when you're a blogger you can make the most of even those days because hello, perfect photo lighting! Ah, summer, as per usual I'll be distraught when you go...

My vintage seaside wedding - the movie!

CiCi Marie vintage seaside wedding video screenshot - wedding license

I bet you didn't think that the first thing I'd be sharing from the wedding would be a fully-fledged video, did you?! But here's the deal: unlike with the photographs (which we're still waiting to get back), the video was DIY. It's also probably the best snapshot of what the whole day was like, so I quite like that it's coming first for that reason. I'll show you the details later in the photos ;)

We always knew we wanted a video, but we also knew we had the skills to do it, if it wasn't for the inconvenient fact that we had to also star in it. Such a drag. The thought occurred to us very early on that we could still edit a video ourselves, as long as we had a willing videographer who could take the footage for us on our camera. Fortunately, my bridesmaid's fiance was persuaded into it (probably partly with the promise we'd return the favour and do their video next year). After an enjoyable afternoon showing him the ropes and taking test footage (which B then edited into a video to prove to our friend he had the skillz), he knew the main principles of how we wanted the shots framed to create our usual style of authentic-looking Super 8-esque video.

And then on the day B was too distracted to tell the poor guy how to change a crucial setting on the camera that would have stopped a lot of over-exposure during the outdoors ceremony because, what do you know, we had perfect summer weather. I'd like to explain that we'd both planned the whole day expecting typical British seaside weather (rain, wind, cold, clouds - you know the drill) and instead we got 20 degree sunshine (ideal for wedding attire) and a gentle breeze for most of the daytime. This aside, while some of the footage wasn't salvageable, we had enough to work with. And we really couldn't complain - we always knew it was a risk of not using a skilled videographer and that the video itself was a keepsake bonus.

Oh and the battery died fairly early on in the evening and the aforementioned distracted groom hadn't thought to pack the spare battery - but honestly, given the state of some of our guests, not necessarily a bad thing ;)

Anyway, all of this 'making of' aside, I should just show you the video now shouldn't I?! Enjoy this glimpse into what this amazing day was like :)



I can't wait to hear what you all think!

I keep saying to B he has a career or at least a part-time job in making this style of wedding video, but he won't hear it! Long-time readers will know that last year he shot and edited the video for my best friend too. What do you all think - could he do this professionally?? Available for weddings in the East Anglia area ;)

Three more weeks until I'm expecting the photos - having the video to watch is keeping us going until then :) I will tell you a lot more about things like what I wore, the decorations etc etc when I post the photos.

The Vintage Carnival Leicester & Best Dressed competition

I was super pleased to be asked back to judge the Leicester Vintage Carnival this month and I'm now going to bombard you with pictures from the day. It's a lovely day out and the lack of torrential rain this year made it all the more enjoyable!

My favourite part about it is the amazing food and drink on offer - what can I say, this girl loves feeding her face. It's terribly middle-classed of me I'm sure, but I love a good street-food stall. The first thing we did when we turned up was scoped out what was on offer. I'm still trying to eat no or low gluten because I felt so much better when I stuck to it before the wedding (I'm intolerant), so The English Indian lured us in with their promise of curried chips and deep-fried haloumi. Honestly, this is the best food I've ever eaten at a festival-type-thing. I got the half-half fried chicken and fried haloumi and it was epic. It makes me hungry just thinking about it. If you ever see these guys at an event, do yourselves a favour and make a beeline for them! We followed this with a strawberry Pimms... mmm.

Fed and happy, we went to check out the vintage car show and it was a great display again. My favourite pink Cadillac was back, but as it didn't match my outfit this time I didn't get photos with it again ;) I think you'll agree my choices are the perfect accessories to this fab Voodoo Vixen dress, that this time I styled with red, orange and gold rather than yellow. B was annoyed I was choosing the cars to stand in front of based on what matched my dress, but then agreed it made for fab photos...

Side note: I have to say, these Swedish Hasbeens served me well - I was expecting them to hurt by the end of the day but they were just fine. Definitely going to bear them in mind for future summer events.

All that looking at cars got me ready for some dessert (who am I kidding, I'm always ready), so we headed to the cafe. The decor was cute and the cakes were outstanding - I had a gluten free millionaire's shortbread that was better than most standard ones I had. B had a chocolate-orange cake that was also divine. Great tea too. Only problem was the service wasn't great - too few staff for too many guests. But we weren't in a hurry so we didn't mind sitting around once we had our tea.

By this point it was getting closer to when I was supposed to be judging, so we thought we'd check out the tent where it was happening. There was a lindy-hop lesson going on and my shoes were definitely not suitable (ever tried dancing in platform wooden soles?), but it was fun to watch. I used to do lessons when I lived in London, so I was itching to join in. (I'm pretty reserved usually, but for some reason have never felt embarrassed dancing to steps in public.) Having said that, I didn't do these lessons with B and I think I saved myself some trampled feet.

And onto the competition! Jess, the festival organiser, myself and Charlie Adams who contributes to Vintage Life magazine were on the judging panel, so here we are below. I think at this point the compere (Jess's mum!) had just wrongly said Charlie 'runs Vintage Life magazine' and we were all chuckling about that.

Best Dressed Competition, Vintage Carnival 2017

There were just under 30 contestants and I was particularly smitten with #1 here's Seamstress of Bloomsbury dress and Miss L Fire shoes (I've been trying to get my hands on these for ages) - and her absolutely fabulous poodle. I always think poodles aren't that flattering but she looked fantastic.

My favourite accessory was the adorable Theodore...

And ta-da! Our winners. 1st place in the middle we loved all of her coordination and accessories. 2nd her 40s vintage dress and fantastic hair (a gibson roll with flowers tucked in the back and pompodour). 3rd the aforementioned fantastic poodle was a big swaying factor!

It turned out I'd bought hair flowers from our second place, as she's the owner of Sink or Swim Bowtique! Our vintage-loving world is a small one...

Outfit: marvellous mint

Normal service on the blog is resumed - for now anyway. When I get the wedding photos back I give it a week before you're all sick of them, but meanwhile there's nothing else for it than to get back to my summer outfits (even if the weather disagrees)! Oh and a quick reminder - there's 2 days left to win tickets to the Vintage Carnival this Saturday in Leicester.

As you'll know if you've been following along for any length of time, summer is my favourite season and I would be quite happy to never see autumn again if I could keep it (which is basically blasphemy if you're a fashion blogger, cos we're meant to be all #layers). I seem to have boundless inspiration for summer looks, although perhaps that's because I get about 10 days a year to wear them so it just feels like a lot?! That being said, my summer wardrobe is ridiculously disproportionate to my winter one, which really is stupid for someone who lives in the UK. And yet, I'm still adding to it all the time, like with this new Bridget top from Hell Bunny. It's in their Melissa shape and I just find it so comfortable and flattering and I will one day have all the colours. I had to snap up this gingham one in case it sold out because it's too adorable and black and white gingham is so easy to wear. I'm wearing this top to death at the moment, it's definitely my new favourite.

I've had a bit of a thing for wearing monochrome with mint recently - it ended up being the colour theme I chose for my minimoon recently. You're all looking at me like she colour-themed her minimoon now, right? Just my clothes - it makes it so much easier to pack if you choose things that all go with each other, I'm not mad... Or so desperate to cling onto wedding planning that I colour-theme my life now (believe me, I'm glad to see the back of it). Anyway, with my new Banned handbag it was time to bring these colours to the blog.

Love through the decades - our unique vintage wedding project

Here I am, on the other side of the wedding an official Mrs! The wedding was fantastic, but more will come on that later. Excuse the uncharacteristically corny post title - it's all going to become clear... Before all of our wedding pictures come in (we've seen a preview already and I just can't wait), while I don't have a lot to share, I thought now would be a good time to show you all what was probably the most unique aspect of our wedding day! It's actually harder than you think to come up with something that hasn't been done before for a wedding... or at least, that if it has, no one in your circle of friends - or theirs - has memory of seeing at another 'do.

It all started for us with a special conundrum of our particular reception venue - it had 17 A1 photo frames to fill, around the roof, that usually housed posters for their upcoming theatre shows. We could have left them, but it seemed a good opportunity to give our decor more of a personal touch without simply covering them up. However, I just couldn't for the life of me figure out what to put into these portrait-orientated frames, at first. I kept going down the 'seaside scenes' route, but my best ideas looked better in landscape. It was actually B that triggered the idea for what we then did, following a conversation about our wedding music. We put together our whole wedding playlist song by song and we wanted it to nod to vintage and be essentially  'songs through the decades' - starting in the 50s, we played songs from each decade in order (we thought about mixing them, but liked them all in their sets in the end). We then had the idea to put together a selfie photo station with a set of props from each decades and B said 'what about if we do something that ties with the decades theme for the photos?' and bam! We thought of the idea of putting us into the decades.

So, we set off on a long project to capture ourselves as a couple from each era for our picture frames! Many Sunday mornings over a series of weeks were spent dressing up and snapping portraits in our living room with my camera, studio lights and tripod. It was important to me that each look felt quite authentic - i.e. that we actually did look like a real young couple from each time, wearing clothes we could have seen ourselves wearing, rather than that we were wearing costumes. That's actually harder than you realise until you start trying to build six different era-appropriate outfits that look obviously like the time they're from. Fortunately we only had to worry about from the waist-up, as this project got rather expensive as it was!

So, here they all are - we had to get two photos from each (3 frames were reserved for other messaging) and I decided in one we would look the same each time and the other would be a posed 'of its time' posed shot. I genuinely don't think the internet has seen me looking the way I do in some of these photos ever before!! Brace yourselves...

This might surprise you, but the 50s look was one of the ones I struggled with most for my own costume! Partly this was because I wanted us to look like a couple and the most obvious way to go for B was a greaser style so I wanted to look like a fitting rebel girlfriend. Partly because I realised that while I have oodles of 50s-inspired pieces in my wardrobe, ones that looked more authentic were few and far between. I also find it very difficult to get my long hair into era-appropriate curls. So, ironically, I bought both a new top and a wig for this look and used nothing from my existing arsenal other than the makeup and it was actually the most expensive to put together here. I've written about this wig before and now you know what started that series off - I've also worn it in an outfit post too. Anyway, I find it hard to choose a favourite set from all of these but this one's up there because I think we nailed the 'silly' shot!

Love through the decades wedding project - 1960s couple portrait

Love through the decades wedding project - 1960s couple portrait

There was no contest when deciding where to go for the 60s! There's so many fun youth sub-cultures to take inspiration from, but it was mod all the way for us. This was again easier to do for B - he had all of his component parts already. I, again, struggled with my hair. I have lots of hair but its length doesn't an easy beehive make - and honestly I'm a bit rubbish at proper ones. So I decided to go in a different direction and use this wig, coupled with some volume-boosting sponges, to make this Cilla Black inspired bob with a hairband. I was really pleased with how it turned out. The top I picked up for cheap from Collectif's Bright & Beautiful outlet line on eBay. But the real clincher for these photos was my Photoshop skills. I managed to trim B's hair into a more mod-ish shape and gave more of a boost to my bob too. I also created that 'cigarette' for B, which isn't a cigarette at all, it's a rolled up receipt (you'll be able to tell now I've said)... I'd like to point out neither of us smoke and don't endorse it, it's merely a prop!

Love through the decades wedding project - 1970s couple portrait

Love through the decades wedding project - 1970s couple portrait

These photos are the ones that every time I've shown someone they've remarked that a) it doesn't look like me at all and b) I look pretty. I'm not quite sure how to take that - I look pretty when I don't look like me?? Although, I guess, actually I do look like me here because I'm not really wearing much makeup at all. Trying to keep true to the era, I toned the eye makeup right down and upped the bronzer for that 70s glow. And actually, it didn't look as bad as I thought it would! My hair is another wig, of course, and I actually think it's pretty fun (and a friend said I had the same hairstyle as her mum used to have, so, winning!). The dress is an authentic vintage 70s dress, with a denim pinafore I already had over the top. B is also wearing a wig (and he haaaates how he looks in it) and a beautiful (lolz) 70s vintage shirt. These pictures might be our most authentic... If you haven't guessed what we were going for in the 'silly' photo, have a watch of a few Abba music videos and pretend I'm about to sing...

Love through the decades wedding project - 1980s couple portrait

Ah, the 80s. The decade I was most dreading and the one that B couldn't wait for. Although he was less excited when I told him he couldn't just dress in a George Michael costume because most people in the 80s weren't that... 'stylish'. So for B we went for a Marty McFly inspired outfit with a hint of George in his bouffant and for me - my look is actually based on a photo of a group of women in their early 20s and one in particular who I've pretty much lifted the entire outfit of. I took the hair inspiration from Jude in St Elmo's Fire and again I was mainly aiming for everyday 80s vs OTT costume 80s, and this time I was using my natural hair. The makeup was particularly fun - I got a neon pink eyeshadow and basically stuck it everywhere. I don't think we're looking at our most beautiful here, but it's nothing compared to how B looks in the 90s...

Love through the decades wedding project - 1990s couple portrait

Love through the decades wedding project - 1990s couple portrait

See, now we've gotten to an era we both remember being around for and that made this more interesting! In this case, I wanted us to dress like we probably did back then. I know I have to now stop to acknowledge how hilarious B looks - that wig is truly horrendous. It looked even worse before I had a go at it in Photoshop, let me tell you. B has late 90s douchebag wrapped up - and he really did have bleach blonde hair and he did wear pretty much this outfit. Yikes. Good thing we didn't meet then. I was going for a Clueless vibe with my hair - and if only it had looked this straight and not like a frizzy mess pre-decent straighteners in the 90s. My outfit looks hilariously like what you see people wearing now, thanks to the 90s coming back in. In fact, my dress and choker were bought in sales from high street shops. I swear I had both back in the 90s. The makeup for this look was one of my favourites - I loved going back to brown lipstick - memories! Those eyebrows 'tho... Fear not, no eyebrows were harmed in the making of this post. I drew them thinly but I then airbrushed most of them out in Photoshop to get that 90s pencil brow. It's funny to me that though the 90s are back in right now, eyebrows are as far removed from those days as it's possible to be. Although, can you blame anyone...

Love through the decades wedding project - 2000s couple portrait

Oh dear. Sticking with the theme of 'no, we really did used to look like this', here we are reliving our emo days of the noughties. I puzzled about what we'd do for the noughties until I thought about what I looked like back then and then this idea clicked into place. Fortunately for me, B was the same way inclined back then. We actually realised that if we'd met at the time, we probably would have had quite the crush on each other. It didn't take much to dig out my old beads (that apparently I couldn't bring myself to bin??) and one of my many hair bows and this vest top I still wear but I probably did buy back then. The hair though... yes, this is my hair, but I've given myself some layers and dyed it red in Photoshop. This is genuinely the colour my hair used to be, so it had to be red! The dog collar on my wrist? I used to wear it round my neck, actually, before I moved into the more cutesy emo years. In fact, I was wearing it in my very first 'adult' passport photo, that I then got stuck with until I was 26. Why do they let 16 year olds take passport photos?!

Love through the decades wedding project - 2010s couple portrait

Love through the decades wedding project - 2010s couple portrait

Ah, that's a bit more familiar isn't it! I wasn't sure what to do for the 'today' pictures until I realised that the day we got engaged would be a great time to anchor them to. It was strange putting all these clothes back on again, but I can't pretend I wasn't the least worried about this set of photos! You can see the full outfit from that day in my previous post.

So there you go - 7 decades in 7 sets of photos! One of the best things about taking these pictures is it was a part of the wedding prep we had to do together. It wasn't always easy using up spare time to dress ourselves one way before showering and starting again so we could actually go out in public (!), but I wouldn't change it for the world now. Otherwise, you might have gathered that I was the styling coordinator behind both our looks - so I spent a lot of time researching vintage fashion to swot up on what was costume-y versus real. I really enjoyed this part of the process, as you might imagine, so it made some of the wedding planning a bit more enjoyable!

If anyone is wondering, they went down a storm with just about everyone who saw them. I didn't catch all of the reactions because I was one of the last people to make it into the reception venue, but those I did see were just what I wanted. So many people thought we went to a proper studio/had professional help to take the shots and our hairdresser friend couldn't believe that the 00s hair was a photoshop job on my real hair... 

So tell me, what's your favourite of our looks here??
