manch1.jpgThis week's CQ liveshop is from Manchester where I met up with Catwalk Queen writer Orla for a fashion fix. With a Sony Vaio laptop and steaming mug of peppermint tea we planned our attack on Manchester's finest shops. Orla and I are both retro aficionados so expect to see a beautiful mix of vintage and independent designer items. Keep checking back to see our progress, the picture on the left is me in our first shop, Rockers.

12:55: We've just left Rockers where we modelled some great '50s dresses.
13:55: We stepped into the fragrant world of Retro Rehab and tried on some fab dresses.
15:30: Off we went to Ryan Vintage for a multitude of vintage bargains and a video with Betty Boop!
16:30: Pop Boutique, a mecca for all things retro was our next destination.
17:30: We've made it to the end and checked out indie-label chic at Unique Boutique
