Festive frocks: daytime frolics

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

Festive frocks: night-time glam

The festive season is almost upon us. I'm halfway through my festive reads (mostly Jenny Colgan books, with Calling Mrs Christmas by Carole Matthews thrown in, in case you were wondering) and have The Muppet Christmas Carol soundtrack accompanying my working days (through headphones, of course. The people I work with are lovely, but I'm… Continue reading Festive frocks: night-time glam

Northampton Vintage Fair and a hatcident

Much as I love the summer and the weekends spent at vintage events, I have to admit that it leaves me quite worn out come September! So, one of the things I love most about the nights creeping in and the weather getting colder is having time to spend browsing vintage fairs. I'm very lucky… Continue reading Northampton Vintage Fair and a hatcident

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

So, after an accidental and impromptu two-week holiday (time just got away from me!), I'm back and ready for the last few weeks of my A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world. And of course, there's only one thing I could talk about this week, and that's vintage! You may remember my post… Continue reading V is for Vintage: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

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
