Vanity Fair – Vixen by Micheline Pitt

In the spirit of “better late than never” I’m finally sharing my review of the Vanity Fair dress in the ‘vintage roses’ print from Vixen by Micheline Pitt.

Everlasting lips – Kat Von D

Although I swear by a classic red lippy, I do like to change it up every now and then. Binge-watching Mad Men recently, I often spotted Betty Draper/Francis with a more coral or rosy lipstick shade rather than a bright red. Something I just hád to try for myself. I’ve been wanting to try out… Continue reading Everlasting lips – Kat Von D

Roses are red – Bonnie Dress by Hearts and Found

You could say I’ve been stalking the Hearts and Found Etsy shop and Instagrammers rocking their dresses for about a year. Their standard size guide classified me into a mix of different sizes, which meant I should opt for their made to measure option. Afraid I would take my measurements wrong  and the fact that… Continue reading Roses are red – Bonnie Dress by Hearts and Found

April 2018 in outfits

Better a little later than never. I promised you April’s outfits would be more exciting. That all had to do with the fact I was attending the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly weekend – which means outing my dearest vintage floral day outfits and swapping into glamourous evening gear I don’t really get to wear at… Continue reading April 2018 in outfits

Mother of Dragonflies – Vivien of Holloway

The 1950s style full circle skirts with voluminous petticoats will always have my heart, but I do like me some more ‘modest’ 1940s outfits as well. I find authentic 1940s pieces a little harder to find, particularly in my size. That’s where Vivien of Holloway has been a life saver. London-based brand Vivien of Holloway… Continue reading Mother of Dragonflies – Vivien of Holloway

Taking the BAIT – B.A.I.T. Footwear

Lately, I’ve been experimenting more with 1940s styles. As someone who rather dresses 1950s-1960s, I hear your question: ‘but what shoes?’ When I saw the previews B.A.I.T. Footwear was posting of the Romona heels, I immediately fell in love. The Romona heels are very different from any other kind of shoes I already own. I think… Continue reading Taking the BAIT – B.A.I.T. Footwear
