Hello Hello Hello.

I know It’s been a while but today I’m feeling blue so I’m ready for sharing.

Not blue in a sad way of course (this lady never lets life get her down) but blue in a super sexy velvet mini dress kind of way.

Take a look at this beauty. A super groovy 1960s vintage mini dress with ruffle edged sleeves.

Isn’t she an absolute beauty. I’ve added a pretty vintage cameo locket and fab 60s bowling bag to complete my look.

So now I’m good to GoGo Go.

A Right Royal Knees Up

Excitement is mounting down here at the Manor.

Only a few weeks to go until The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and I’m already outfit planning for the event.

First up is this simply stunning 1950s vintage royal blue (of course) waffle cotton dress with white trim. Accessorised with a huge 1960s enamel flower brooch, a white clutch and an unseen red petticoat to complete the look and keep the flag flying.

Blooming Lovely

Next we have an amazing 1980s vintage red polka dot dress. Even though it’s an 80s dress it has a lovely 1940s vibe, complete with the very latest thing ‘the peplum’. I’ve added a blue patent belt, a string of pearls and some gorgeous 1960s flower earrings to finish off.

Peplum Perfect

Patriotic Petals

Now all I have to decide is, which to wear first and then find the nearest Street Party.

I Hope Kate & Wills have arranged one, I promised Harry I’d teach him to tango.

3 cheers for her Majesty.

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.

White Up My Street

Good Day to you my lovelies.

Hope life is treating you well.

Here at the manor I’ve got a hankering for the pure so today I’m going for a touch of white.

I’ve teamed my super, 1960s vintage M&S belted mini dress with shocking turquoise tights, a boxy leather deco inspired shoulder bag and a fabulous headscarf. 

Well I do need my hint of kitsch otherwise I’d be lost.

It’s all a bit Jackie O’ no she didn’t.

A bit of all white

Mrs Blue Sky

Hellloooo Lovelies.

Well it seams that Spring is finally springing here at The Manor and the sun is doing her level best to break through the winter gloom.

I’m celebrating by getting  the pins out in this super cute, turquoise 60s mini dress. Accessorised with bright beads and a gorgeous clutch bag,

(borrowed from my good friend) and perfect for this Lady.

Here comes the sun

Get my good side

My body's too beadalicious for you.

Fab graphic bag (Thanks Claire x)

 

Now all I have to do is find my blasted shades, wherever did Freeman put them?

Till next time. xxx

Where The Wild Things Are.

Grrrrrrrrrr. Hello Tigers. Welcome back.

Today I’m in love with all things animal. I’ve ferreted out the faux fur and grabbed the snakeskin clutch (vintage of course) and, as there seams to be an explosion of love for our feathered friends on the High St too at the moment I’ve decided to take a peek at some of my favourite animal inspired pieces.

Top of my list is this gorgeous (and I must say quite huge) Vintage Lion Pendant. Purrrfect. 

Next up, my Vintage Silver Frog Pendant with turquoise set stone. He looks a little squashed but I still love him.

Finally, I salute the man (or bird) of the moment with my cute Vintage Articulated Owl Pendant. With his amber stone set eyes, he definitely means business.

Hope you have a wild evening too.

Come Spy With Me

Oh the glamour and excitement of Pan Am.

I’m just loving this new show, especially the espionage storyline. So, today I’m taking my style inspiration from Bridget and Kate, the spying stewardesses.

I’m wearing a 1960’s plaid tweed dress with pale tights and carrying a fab tooled leather bag. Topping off with a camel colour beret and a heart locket, Perfect for storing the micro film.

I’m Ready for my mission.
