Festival Fever

Here I am sitting watching the rain beat relentlessly down and what springs to mind?

Summer festivals of course. The rain, the mud, the keep on going spirit of it all.

I’ve cranked up the stereogram, rooted out a bit of Joni and I’m ready to go.

OK rain, do your worst.

Wearing my gorgeous vintage, embroidered skirt with a simple white vest, tooled leather belt and completing the look with a beautiful vintage leather tassel shoulder bag.

Always on the fringe of things.

Up close. Beautiful detail.

Alright now. Bring on the Glamping, the Hunters and the Pimms please.

See you on the other side.

Disco Diva Going Green

Today I’m feeling all disco, so I’m digging out the glitter-ball, strapping on the sandals and going green.

I love this Vintage 1970s Si-Bon cape sleeve dress. It simply glides over the body, hugging in all the right places and is the perfect mid length too.

(so forgiving for all our figures).

I’ve teamed it with a cool jade green & goldtone brooch and goldtone chain necklace worn as a bracelet.

Sort of a cross between Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface and a classic 1940s Film Noir heroine.

Clings in all the right places

Balls to convention. I'm wearing it as a bracelet.

Si Bon? Oh yes it is.

The dress is so pristine it still has all it’s original tags too.

Light up the floor Freeman, One is off to play.

Popping Down the Shops

Well I can’t tell you just how excited I am right now.

One has only gone and opened a jolly splendid Pop Up Shop inside the fabulous Nichols Building in Sheffield.

I’m down here until Friday the 20th of April so do come by and say hello. It’s an amazing place, packed to the rafters with gorgeous vintage clothing, furniture and collectibles along with lots of handcrafted items. Oh and the cafe’ is quite special too, even the chairs you sit on you could end up taking home.

Marvellous Mary and 50s Fever

My My My. What lovely people I met yesterday at Mary’s Marvellous Vintage & Craft Market.

I decided on a beautiful, nude early 1960s summer dress but, as the weather decided to take a rather unseasonal turn I had to top it off with my faux fur.

Nude but not Rude

Unfortunately I lost my glasses. Last seen on a strange young man by the name of Eddie.

Happy Shopper

I had such a fun day and made some purchases too. Including a hand crafted Easter card from Nicky Attwell, some lovely spring headbands from Happy Hare and I grabbed myself a gorgeous 1950s vintage sundress which I have decided to wear today, teaming it with a fun wicker basket bag, some faux pearls and pink catseye sunglasses.

Good Day Sunshine.

Pretty Pink and Pearly

Just the right size for cucumber sandwiches

Now all I need is a picnic spot and someone to pour the Pimms.

Enjoy your day.
