Welcome to the second in my series of festive frocks for all occasions (in case it's not become clear just yet, I really love Christmas. And one of the things I love most is all the themed outfit possibilities; there are so many!). My thoughts have now well and truly turned to what to wear… Continue reading Festive frocks: daytime frolics

Review: Dolly & Dotty Veronica dress

Long-time readers of the blog may remember my review of the Dolly & Dotty May dress (which, coincidentally, I reviewed in May last year).

V is for Vintage: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Long-time readers will remember me talking about Twinwood Festival in the past (if you're new to the… Continue reading T is for Twinwood Festival: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

S is for Stories: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

An avid people watcher (and I mean, really avid – I do it while we’re walking around the supermarket, it drives The Boy mad), I love making up stories about people I see going about their day-to-day lives. They’re probably doing something pretty mundane (especially if they’re in the supermarket), but in my head, they’re… Continue reading S is for Stories: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World
