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.

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.

Today I’m wearing two of my absolute favourite things. Red and 1950s. I have to say this is one of the nicest dresses I own. It makes me happy just to look at it.

LBD. Loves Beautiful Dresses.

Good afternoon vintage vixens.

Well there doesn’t seam to be any let up in this truly dire weather does there and it’s making me think about autumn.

Early I know but what’s a lady to do when skies are grey. It’s my favourite season for fabulous fashion and what better way to get ready than with this simply gorgeous 1950s vintage black velvet dress.

I simply adore soft, lush velvet. It makes you want to snuggle and stroke.

What saves this dress from LBD boredom is the pretty rhinestone clasp on the belt. I’ve also added a rhinestone brooch to compliment and topped it all off with this, most amazing 1950s embossed leather clutch bag. The colours and oriental design are simply stunning , brighten up the dress and my mood too.

Well I suppose it’s good for the garden.

TTFN.

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.

Pastel Perfect

Side View. Check Out the Sleeves.

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

Hats Off To Me

Tantastic

Now if only this blasted wind would stay away.

She Wore Blue Velvet

Hello lovely people.

The sun is finally shining, the birds are singing and I’m feeling blue (Well I’m feeling Blue Velvet to be exact).

I’m continuing my Diamond Jubilee themed outfits with this beautiful early 1960s vintage, royal blue velvet dress. It fits beautifully, a tiny fitted waist with a slight curve on the hips and so soft to the touch too.

My Latest Crush

To keep things suitably regal I have on a pretty glass necklace and have finished off with a gorgeous, yet practical, tan box bag.

A Little Bit Of Sparkle.

The Royal Box

Hope you all have a jolly super time.
