OOTD: Vintage at London Fashion Week

So this weekend it was London Fashion Week’s Vintage show called Retrospective. Its objective was to show the fashions of the past that have influenced the key trends of the future.

OOTD: MK’s 1940s weekend

OOTD: hot, hot, hot!

So what to wear in this incredible heat? How to do vintage in 30 degrees is a toughie when generally you just want to wear an oversized sack! I dream of looking like the Gil Evgren pin up, hair all bouncy as well as other bouncy bits!!   Well today I chose a 1970s fine […] Read more…

OOTD: Party Girl

2 parties in one day! Well doesnt life begin at 40! Well the first one was a 4th birthday party with a bouncy castle and a son dressed as spiderman. Thankfully the second one was for the adults. I wore a 1950s cotton day dress in blue. It falls really nicely as it has side […] Read more…

OOTD: My Hen Night!

So first thing to say is this is a day late. Is that because you have been busy with Kitty’s 2nd birthday I hear you ask? Or getting ready for the wedding? Ah no, it’s because I have been a poorly girl since the hen night on Friday! But today I’m almost back to the land […] Read more…

Outfit of the day

Yesterday we went to a christening and for once the sun shone! They used our cake stands for their cakes and pies which we featured yesterday in our Vintage Diary. So what do you wear to a christening? Churches are often quite cold so I didn’t want to wear a sleeveless dress. Obviously I would be wearing vintage […] Read more…
