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.

Hello Lovely People.

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.

 

Covered in gorgeous red roses, with flattering 3/4 sleeve and fab full skirt. It’s so perfect for the autumn.

Such a great silhouette.

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.

 

 

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.

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.

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.
