Geometry Lesson.

Hello everyone.

Hope you’ve all been having a fun time so far this autumn. A super spooky Halloween or a blazing Bonfire Night perhaps?

Today’s inspiration comes from the autumn leaves so I’m wearing this beautiful copper brown 1950s vintage dress.

It has a fabulous full skirt, pretty back button detail and cool geometric pattern.

 

 

 


I’ve teamed it with the staple kelly bag and a slightly crazy looking vintage cat brooch. 

 

 

 

My My that is one unhappy looking kitty.

Cheery bye from me.

Autumn Art in Brilliant Burgundy.

The leaves are falling, the sky is grey but don’t be blue.

Autumn is truly the season for rich, beautiful colour and fabulous Period Drama.

Today I’m feeling inspired by the shades of the season and amazing Art Deco. 

Wearing this lush, vintage burgundy velvet, cape sleeve dress with embroidered detail, I feel wonderful. Just like a 1930s screen goddess.

 


Figure skimming in all the right places.

Beautiful waist detail, teamed and with simple pearls.

Added this stunning Edwardian, embroidered bag (borrowed from my good friend) to complete the look. Downton Abbey meets Ginger Rogers.

All I need now is a roaring fire and some port.

Hell For Leather

OK you lot. Just sit down and shut up.

Today I’ve gone all dominatrix and have a lust for leather. Since it’s turning somewhat autumnal here I thought I would try out my vintage olive green leather pencil skirt and give it a saucy twist.

Ready for Today’s Lesson?

There’s nothing sexier than a simple high waisted pencil skirt teamed with the perfect vintage Jaeger blouse.

Being the true British lady I am, I’ve topped it with a tweed tie pussy bow for heritage style. 

Who needs 50 shades. This lady doesn’t bow to anybody.

Now Get Out. I’m busy.

 

 

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

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.

My Fair Lady

Hello  good people of the world (or those of you who read this anyway).

Yesterday I had a marvellous time and I mean literally, at Mary’s Marvellous Christmas and Craft Fair. Phew! Try saying that after one too many G&Ts.

Lots of lovely stallholders selling everything from Kitsch kittens to amazing Art Deco handbags and plenty of talented crafters too with great hand knits and even contemporary art works from Sheffield’s own Jonathan Wilkinson.

The cafe there had amazing food with gorgeous homemade cakes too. Absolutely yummy.

Channeling one of my style icons, Marlene Dietrich but with my own little twist. I was dressed in a full skirted, black lace dress, accessorised with glass beads, a cravat and a Top Hat. 

I was very good and my only purchase of the day was a stunning, chain mail Art Deco Evening Bag which was a absolute bargain. How Much? I hear you ask.

Well, a Lady never tells.

Lady I’m a Firework

Bang, Crack Whizz!  Hope you having a splendid Bonfire Night everyone.

Tonight I’m inspired by the colours of autumn and nature’s fabrics so I’m wearing an original 1970s suede orange jacket (So this season’s hot colour) and a super welsh tapestry, wool pencil skirt. I’ve added a vintage scent bottle pendant necklace to give it a touch of autumnal gold and I’m ready for the fireworks.

Right where’s the footman? He’s supposed to be nailing the Catherine Wheel as we speak.
