I am madly in love with anything vintage and have been for over 20 years or so now. The appeal for me with the 1940s and 1950s started when I was a teenager because I just didn't find the modern lifestyle appealing or romantic. So from about the age of seventeen I was hooked on the clothing, the furniture and the music. I can't get enough and enjoy being around others who love it as much as me. What a way to live! I wouldn't ask for it any other way. Now I can write a blog about my lifestyle and the things I enjoy and feel passionate about.

Outfit Shots Number One

Well ladies I thought it was about time I put up some shots of myself in some of my outfits. Most of these photos were taken very quickly after I just finished a burlesque photoshoot. I love my hair and makeup in these photos so needed to share.
The first shot is in the studio after my shots were taken while all the other shots are taken at home by my very enthusiastic husband
No 1: I am wearing a lovely cotton Hawaiian shirt with side zips and remix shoes that are obviously not visible.
No 2: I am wearing a red halter top I made from a retro vintage pattern, black vintage earrings, side zips and remix red shoes which you can't see.
No 3: In this photo I am in a vintage Cole of California dress, red tiki shoes with bamboo bangles and vintage earrings.
No 4: The final photo I am trying to go for the ' I Love Lucy' look!! I think I pulled it off!! Hee hee! I am wearing a fab vintage 'Lucy' style top, black capris, ballet flats and black earrings.
I hope you dig them.

Lilli Ann Suits - Oh How I Love You!!

I have always had a love affair with vintage fashion, particularly styles from the 1940s and 1950s. I especially love Hawaiiana, bombshell dresses and casual wear as there is just something so special about garments from this time period.
I go through stages with garments but at the moment I am in love with 'Lilli Ann' suits as they are so darn special and the fit, the fit!! So flattering and superbly made. What women wouldn't look good in one of these gems!! Unfortunately they are getting quite pricey but I suppose I understand why as they were extremely well made and are divine.
So here's a little taste of some I came across on the net.
