Less speed, more Hastings

A few weeks ago, I took a trip to the seaside to the Jack in the Green festival that’s held there every year on May Day. It’s a great olde English tradition which dates back to the 16th century, which was revived in Hastings back in the 80s and the annual celebrations feature lots of…

Sales & Socials

A couple of years ago, I used to run the Sale & Social with my Vintage Mafia gals, but alas, those are consigned to history.

7 Years Young, my Tweed (Run) Anniversary

A signature Heyday Fleur dress, which was…

Tomorrow, a very exciting exhibition is opening at the Imperial War Museum. Fashion on the Ration is the story of everyday people in 1940s Britain, and how style and fashion endured and evolved under the strict rules of rationing. I’m getting a sneak peek tonight as I am DJing at the private view with The Vintage Mafia,…

The King’s Brands

Welcome back to everyone’s favourite historical features on my blog, namely, Edwardian history in association with everyone’s favourite tipple, The King’s Ginger! This time, I wanted to delve a little deeper into the marvels of the Edwardian age. Or rather the products and brands that were invented and launched in the reign of Edward VII…

Vintage tattooing x 2015

Hi everyone! Happy New Year to you all! It’s far too late to be saying that, but since haven’t posted since before Christmas, then it still applies. Hope you all had the most smashing holidays and haven’t been suffering too much being back at work, as I have. In my last post, I showed off…

Festive Fleur 2014

Christmas is coming up fast, right? I’m so not ready for it, at all. But at least  I *look* ready, because lovely Shona Heyday has released the 2014 Christmas Fleur dress in plenty of time for the big day. Look! It’s the Holly Berry Fleur dress this year, with sprigs of holly and gold bells…
