The vintage crew goes to Kew

Today, I am suffering quite badly with hayfever (love the warm weather, hate the sneeziness that comes with it), and my brain isn't firing on all cylinders. I asked The Boy what I should write about, and he told me I should write about the amazingness that is the new Legend of Zelda game. He's… Continue reading The vintage crew goes to Kew

U is for Under Garments: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Underwear, undergarments, foundation wear, that uncomfortable stuff under your outfit...call it what you will, it can be a pretty important part of dressing vintage. It doesn't have to be, of course, but for me, wearing something vintage-inspired underneath my dresses makes my outfits feel a little bit more special. In the run up to our… Continue reading U is for Under Garments: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World
