introducing... Tallow & Tide!

Posted by Sophie Bird on


If you have come this far you are curious about the new name... Tallow & Tide!  We have morphed, changed and grown since 2016 and in my heart of hearts, I think we have grown out of Wrecked Vintage. When I opened WV I was young, 22, unencumbered and reckless! WV reflected that wholeheartedly, it was edgy, feet first and unapologetic! I had every intention to work like a crazy woman to whip WV into a frenzy of fun, sustainable fashion.  I soon fell pregnant unexpectedly and my life sharply changed. Tallow, my daughter, was born, after a very difficult pregnancy full of illness and Pre Natal Depression. After facing such a sharp lifestyle change my edges softened and I...

Dazzling Denim

Posted by Sophie Bird on


Are you crafty? Have incredible patience? I don't, but fuck I wish I did. I would take up embroidering denim for a living. In a lul in my to do lists I find myself trawling Pinterest for images of embroidered denim. There's something about it that sets my imagination free. Something romantic about the idea of sitting and stitching secrets into my jeans beneath the setting sun, Pimms in hand and Dolly Parton on the stereo. Maybe i'm going a bit far, but when I find pockets of time to find inspiration I am always led back to the endless stream of vintage inspired embroidery designs. I compiled my favourites from todays quick trawl for you to enjoy. S x...

Summer Lovin'

Posted by Sophie Bird on


Getting inspired.... Starting to sift through our favourite pinterest boards to get some inspiration for our heat of summer buying trip which is coming up oh so soon... I can never seem to stray away from my forever favourite easy look of thrashed denim and beaten vintage tees.... While the girls flooding our feeds are tanned and crispy like a Croissant and thinner than the Coles sausages, I genuinely believe this look suits every one. My denim gets a serious work out all year round, I love to size UP in my shorts for a relaxed look and a longer leg, then again, I know my staff love to size down for a high and tight look, it really can work...

Jericho Road

Posted by Sophie Bird on


Our latest collection is a story of great abandon.  A story of a young woman's journey into finding herself, her past and her future. Of growing up in the country where the grass is dry, the Jericho Road, long, lonely, where every turn holds hearts full of memories.  The tale of a journey with her heart in her hand, waiting to find its home, but realising it was in Jericho Road the whole time. In the blazing sun, sewn in the field, seeping in the banks of the creek and scattered in the dust beneath her feet.  The feeling of loss and gain simultaneously, the journey of a young vagabond finding her own way home. Jericho Road launches in store 30th July...

Shop Your Shape!

Posted by Sophie Bird on


So often I get told that people can't wear vintage because it is tiny, made for size 8's & they haven't found anything in a 'real' size. I always say 'let me help you!' But their mind is made up... Well, challenge accepted! I know every shape can shop in my store, all you need is a little inspiration and confidence. I've put together a few of my friends favourite looks (shit it was hard to choose cause honestly, there's SO much). I am a size 10 Top, size 12 Bottom and 170cm tall, a mum of a 9 month old, lover of sleep ins and breakfasts out. I own WRECKED and wear our clothes daily!  Come with me, bring...
