Windy Weather

Just a quick outfit post for you today! I wanted to start incorporating some of my cotton summer dresses into my outfits after a long and boring winter, but I picked a particularly bad day to do it. I don’t really have enough slips or vests and today was cold, windy and, when we started…

The King’s Wheels

As the seasons turn, it becomes less appropriate to drink The King’s Ginger neat (to warm one’s cockles), and more of a time to start thinking about long, cold cocktails to drink in the warm sunshine. Or maybe it’s just the two days of sunshine we had that’s made me do some seriously wishful thinking!…

Wonderful workwear

As a blogger of reasonable standing, I get sent a lot of press releases – too many these days to ever have the time to reply to as 99.9% of them are not about vintage, nor indeed any of my other interests outside of vintage. But the other day I got quite a cool one…

Bingo wings

I haven’t been to a good old Blogger event for ages, so when my lovely friend Jayne from Jayne’s Kitschen invited me to go along to a Musical Bingo night underneath Pizza East, I threw caution to the wind and said yes. Actually, when I realised the venue, it was like I was a cartoon…

Top 10 UK vintage date ideas

Online dating. It used to be a little bit taboo, back in’t day. I met one of my ex boyfriends online (albeit not through a dating site, but through a forum) back in 2004, and I remember during our three years together, I was rarely honest about how we met. But times change – after…

Self nostalgia?

I’m feeling kind of old at the moment. Hurtling towards my mid-thirties, few too many late nights (and shandies) lately, not enough exercise. So it was lovely to receive an unexpected email last week from the talented photographer Rebecca Parker, who I did a photoshoot with way back in the mists of time (2008). You may…

The Mafia x MyDaily

A couple of weeks ago, myself and my Vintage Mafia amigas were lucky enough to be featured on MyDaily, a site which has a regular feature called My Vintage Wardrobe. I’ve known a few people who’ve starred on there before and they are, to a woman, fabulous. So it was an honour to be asked…

Still a big Fan

(…of fans!) Stop Press! It’s time for another frock announcement – if you don’t want to read about another in my ongoing series of dress collaborations with Heyday, look away now! A long, long time ago… well alright, it was in about September last year, I modelled another limited edition Fleur dress in a beautiful…
