Lately I'm loving… layers!

Layering up with vintage this winter

There’s an art to layering in winter and it’s one of the reasons why I prefer the cooler seasons. I mean… who doesn’t love to wear an amazing coat with a vintage dress?! With a 1950s beaded cardigan… And a cute collar! Have you been layering up this winter too?

Lately I'm loving… charming prints!

1950s Jerry Gilden dress and 1960s Margaret Smith bag

Sometimes I find it really hard to let go of some pieces of vintage. Sure… not everything will fit or suit me but when it does and I find it irresistible… it has a tendency to end up in my closet instead of the store. Oops… maybe! ;) Two such items are this 1950s dress […]

Lately I'm loving… summer brights

Me in my 1960s Puritan Forever Young summer dress

When I first saw this 1960s dress it was love at first sight. I don’t usually favour such brightly coloured clothing but there was just something about this dress that meant it had to be mine. Maybe because it’s summer and everything around me is so bright or maybe I’m starting to be a little […]

Lately I'm loving blue hues

Contrasting colours are always visually stunning but the effects of keeping within one colour range can be just a pretty. The tonal variations of one colour can bring their own nice, soft contrast and there’s just something about blue hues that lately, I’m finding lovely! I’ve shown this dress once before on the blog (I […]

Lately I'm loving… pretty prints

Me wearing my vintage apple print Malia dress

I recently acquired a vintage 1970s Malia dress with the intention of selling it in the store but… I ended up putting it on myself instead of my trusty old dress form and well… I decided it was meant to be mine (I also noticed my dress form is about the same height as me!). […]
