Rose lives in the UK by the sea, with her older brother and artist mother Ann Carrington. A happy and rich life filled out with nature, dreams and lots of vintage clothing.

My daughter is second hand Rose by name and second hand Rose by nature – there is nothing in her wardrobe that was bought new! Her father deals in vintage clothes and she has everything from a Kiss tour jackets to a wonderful ballet dress designed by Margot Fonteyn’s dress designer (given to her by our neighbour). New things – her grandmother knits her beautiful cardigans, hats and gloves. Primark for knickers and socks!

Your favorite children’s stores
Do you buy a lot online for your children and what are your favorite e-stores?
I do buy a lot of things online. You can get just about everything at Amazon at great prices too: books, toys, films, music etc. If I can’t get what I want there I go to John Lewis or The Early Learning Centre
What are the criteria you consider when you buy something for child
Most expensive item you bought for your child
Rose fell in love with a pair of beautiful red polka-dot flamenco shoes that she saw in a shoe shop window while we were on holiday in Las Palmas – so I bought them for her as a surprise – she calls them her Dorothy shoes. I also bought a portfolio of French 1930s school posters from an antique shop near her grandparents apartment in Pezanas, Southern France. They now hang on her bedroom wall
Favorite piece in her wardrobe
The Dorothy shoes!
Where are you going for the summer holidays
We live right by the sea in Broadstairs, Kent – a lovely old English sea side resort. We will be staying at home for the Summer holidays (as usual) as there is nowhere else we would rather be – you can’t beat Broadstairs in the Summer! And all our friends come and stay!
