Going For Gold

Well Hello There.

I know I’ve been away for some time but I simply got too engrossed in the Olympics.

I feel so proud to be British. I think we did such a super job of hosting and our athletes were truly inspirational.

Well I was inspired anway. Not to take up sport  (one’s knees simply will not allow it) but to wear gold to celebrate Team GB’s fantastic success.

Here’s My beautiful 1960s vintage gold lace dress

With the ultimate accessory. One’s very own gold medal (well sort of). A 1970s vintage disc pendant will do.

 

And somewhere to keep my flag. A lovely 1960s brown Kelly bag.

So now I’m all set for The Paralympics too.

Go Team GB. Go.

Time Capsule

As the summer sunshine tries (mostly in vain) to peak out from behind grey clouds, the time has come to bust out my capsule festival wardrobe.

First up is an original 1980s Topshop body-Con dress in super scorching neon pink. The perfect colour for this season and so naughty.

Team it with a fantastic early 1990s, oversized studded denim shirt for a more casual look.

Next, a pair of pretty vintage 1980s M&S floral shorts which I’ve cropped off to give them more of an edge.

Topped with a 1970s Falmers fitted denim waistcoat. 

Finally, add the perfect festival backpack and I’m ready for the off.

Lovely for a summer weekend away, everything can be mixed & matched so no need for more. Well, apart from the wellies of course and maybe some knickers.

Here’s to a simply smashing summer.

Com-pleat Perfection

Hello my lovelies.

I’ve been away for a little while, recovering from all the splendid Jubilee celebrations. Hope you all had a super time too.

Now I’m back I’ve decided to ignore the decidedly inclement weather and release the legs.

I love this gorgeous 1970s vintage pleated  mini dress with lace detail sleeves and faux pearl buttons. The pale blue print reminds me of a Parisian boudoir.

To complete my 70s vibe I’ve topped it with a fantastic vintage felt hat and cool tan leather shoulder bag

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.

Emerald Pretty

Well that’s it folks. The awards season is over and I’m so happy ‘The Artist’ took top honours. 

If you are thinking, just where am I going to get my fix of glitz and sparkle now? don’t be alarmed I’m here to provide you with a new kind of glam.

GRUNGE GLAM.

I’m mixing a vintage 1970s disco sequin top in gorgeous emerald green with teeny tiny cut off Levis’. Adding a vintage art deco inspired pendant, fishnet tights and a tan shoulder bag for a look I like to call Ethel Merman meets Rihanna.

Get your coat. You've pulled

A quick change of bag and an addition of a vintage faux fur jacket and one is no longer a Lady.

TTFN.

Hooray Hooray, It’s a Holi Holiday

Greetings Kitsch Kittens.

I decided it’s time to start planning the Summer break  and what better way to do it than to get oneself togged up in this fabulous vintage swimsuit.

It’s got everything I need to feel sunshine happy. Amazing bright floral print: Check. 50s Pinup style: Check. A bit of help in the bust department: Check. Never been worn with it’s original labels attached: Check Check Check.

I’m grabbing my cats eye glasses and retro headscarf and I’m raring to go.

Anyone know where I can get that perfect beach bag?

All set. Who wants to do my back?

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.
