I love your zig-zag dress style

1960s Maggy Rouff zig-zag dress

With it now well and truly being April and the long hot days of summer behind us (assuming April doesn’t throw another random hot day into the mix!), I’m finding myself inspired by autumn hues and with colourful zig-zag dresses like this… there’s little wonder why! I’m already picturing which cardigan I’d wear with this […]

I love your refreshingly cool summer style

Refreshingly cool 1950s summer style

Last week, a large part of Australia experienced record high summer temps of over 40ºC and as someone who wilts as soon as it hits 30ºC well… I coped. Barely! My vintage sleeveless cotton frocks have been on regular rotation and it’s seen me lusting over more like these beauties… These two ladies definitely have […]

Perhaps it was the past week of constant grey skies and rain or… it might be the impending festive period and I’m dreaming about talking a holiday?

I love your rollerskating suit style

I love your 1970s rollerskating suit style

I use to love rollerskating. Back in the day my best friend and I would skate down the terrifying heights of our neighbourhood back streets and… it was amazing fun!

I love your 1950s pineapple dress style

I love your 1950s pineapple dress style

It’s a big call but I do not think my  life could possibly be complete until I have a pineapple dress like this one. Designed by Givenchy with the pineapples embroidered on, my chances of finding this exact dress are pretty slim but… a girl can dream… about the perfect 1950s pineapple dress! Can’t she? […]

I love your 1970s blazer style

Yves Saint Laurent shirtwaist and blazer

Yves Saint Laurent created a whole new and bold dress code for women during the 1970s and a staple in many women’s wardrobes was the shirtwaist dress worn with a blazer. I love the pairing of a printed shirtwaist dress with a blazer… I think it’s kinda cute! Especially with her bowler hat. What do […]

I love your 1930s umbrella style!

I love your 1930s umbrella style!

Yep. More umbrellas but I think you’ll agree this 1930s umbrella wielding lady is beautiful! Not only do I adore her brolly but I love her whole wintery ensemble. The trench coat, the gloves, the striped shirt cuffs peeking out from the coat sleeves… right down to the delightful curls falling out from her hat. […]

I love your hooded suit style

1960s hooded suits by Laroche and Dior

If you’re thinking wooly suits for autumn/winter (can you believe it’s almost winter already?!) then I think you’ll love these… Hooded suits! Yep. That’s right. Hooded suits. I’m quite taken with this look. The one on the left is a black and white tweed by Laroche, and the one on the right is by Dior. […]

I love your style Jenny Lee!

Miss Jenny Lee (Jessica Raine) on the TV show 'Call the Midwife'

I’ve briefly talked about the British TV show ‘Call the Midwife’ before and there are oodles of reasons I adore the show, which I will probably talk about another time but today I wanted to gush over the beautiful Miss Jenny Lee (Jessica Raine). Set during the 50s there are full skirted frocks aplenty and Jenny’s […]
