Pansies & Greenery

I have so many awesome things to write about but in the meantime, here’s just a straightforward outfit post! Everyone knows I love a good Swirl, but I haven’t bought one in ages! I just don’t look that often these days, due to funds and space. But I couldn’t resist this one. Pink pansies in…

Last Call! A 3D printed adventure

Spoiler: not life size!  About a month ago, I posted about an exciting project I was doing with British Airways for their Last Call campaign, for which they 3D printed me (!) and sent the miniature Fleur off to Istanbul to see what delights it could find. Sadly, I didn’t make it to any vintage shops,…

The Queen’s Brownie!

I’m quite excited about this month’s King’s Ginger blog post. It’s the first time I have actually acquired a piece of genuine Edwardian royalty memorabilia. But, thanks to the lackadaisical UK postal system, the post has come a little late as I couldn’t publish it without having said item in my sweaty mitts! But here…

Birthday!

Last week, it was my birthday!  I turned 33, a nice satisfyingly symmetrical albeit large and scary number! In contrast to previous years, I kept it completely low key this year, but still celebrated in two parts as is traditional – on the Saturday closest to the day, and on the day itself. Actually, three…

A sundress of delight

This time of year, I’m surgically attached to my 1940s repro peasant tops, most of which are from Vivien of Holloway, that emporium of British-designed, British-made reproduction vintage. I recently did a rare spot of modelling for VoH, for their newest (old) creation, the Anna sundress and of course, they kindly let me have one. I…

Mini Me, you complete me!

Well this is an exciting thing. A week or two ago, I was invited to the offices of British Airways’ ad agency to do something rather different. BA have recently launched a campaign called Last Call, a last-minute type service where you can book to jet off somewhere within the next month or so for bargain…

The King’s Mistress – Sister Agnes

Good afternoon/morning/evening (delete as applicable to timezone) one and all, and welcome to my latest King’s Ginger adventure! Before I go on, there has been a big change at the KGL HQ, with distribution switching to Mangrove and this means world domination is on the horizon! Expect big things and hopefully even wider availability for…

The (no) Tweed Run 2014

I might as well give up taking my camera to the Tweed Run as I barely took it out of my bag this year, being far too busy enjoying myself (just as I should be). Not that it matters because you are absolutely guaranteed to snapped dozens of times as we all make our way…

Vintage dates for your diary!

Hi all! I’m going to (try) to start a new regular-ish post about upcoming events that might appeal to my readers as I get sent info about so many that it seems a shame not to tell the world about them. The world who reads my blog, that is. From Rhythm Riot last year –…

In-between Weather – an outfit post!

After a few days of lovely sunshine here in Blighty, it’s now cooled down to the point where it isn’t really warm enough to go bare legged (but I do anyway) or leave the house without a coat. Once I have got going with the cotton dresses it is impossible for me to go back…
