Ring O’ Roses. It’s Blooming Lovely to be tagged.

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.

 

Close up detail. Beautiful.

Popping Down the Shops

Well I can’t tell you just how excited I am right now.

One has only gone and opened a jolly splendid Pop Up Shop inside the fabulous Nichols Building in Sheffield. 

http://www.facebook.com/NicholsBuilding?ref=ts

I’m down here until Friday the 20th of April so do come by and say hello. It’s an amazing place, packed to the rafters with gorgeous vintage clothing, furniture and collectibles along with lots of handcrafted items. Oh and the cafe’ is quite special too, even the chairs you sit on you could end up taking home.

They have some amazing furniture. Here’s a couple of my favourite pieces.

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.

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

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.
