Lily Allen's Vintage Plans

Lily Allen wants to "revolutionise" vintage shopping.

The 'Not Fair' singer - who is pregnant with her first child and recently announced she intends to take a five-year break from the music scene to concentrate on motherhood - is set to open her own vintage clothing store, Lucy in Disguise, later this month with half-sister Sarah Owen and wants shoppers to have a fun experience when they go.

Speaking about the store - which is based in London's Covent Garden, has over 1,800 pieces consumers can either buy or hire and will have a Grey Goose vodka bar to help browsing more enjoyable - Lily said: "We're trying to revolutionise vintage shopping - it will be clean lines and easy to navigate, so you don't have to rummage."

Lily, 25, says she wanted to open the store with Sarah because her sibling wasn't doing what she wanted to do with her life.

She told The Sunday Times Magazine: "Towards the end of last year I knew this year I didn't want to be on tour so much and - to give you the history - Sarah and I haven't always got on, but things between us started to sort themselves out and I thought, well, why don't we do something together?

"Sarah was at a bit of a loose end - she spent all her summers in Ibiza and I felt very aware she was 30 this year and maybe that's not what you really want to be doing in your 30s, hanging around a beach, selling sarongs, being on the door at nightclubs. She was selling herself a bit short, I thought. And we both love clothes, specifically vintage, so I said, let's do a shop."
