Laura Ashley: How A Global Empire Started At The Kitchen Table

Laura Ashley is synonymous with middle-class-English flowery frocks. Generally not so cool, mumsy style, baggy arm dresses you often see an aunt wearing in 1970’s or 80’s family christening photos. They made bridesmaid… Continue reading

Retro Kitchen Style

A super quick post today to share a couple of new items to my retro kitchenware collection. Charity shops are heaving with funky vintage and retro bits for your kitchen, pantry or dining… Continue reading

High Heel Boots I Can Actually Walk In!

I am feeling like a very sorry looking squirrel today. I had my bottom wisdom teeth out this morning and despite being drugged up to the eye-balls (literally) it’s still a wee bit… Continue reading

What is the difference between vintage, antique & retro?

Yikes, it’s been weeks since I babbled to you guys. It’s time for an over due chat! My draft box is full of half-written, part-illustrated posts so while I wait for a sunny… Continue reading

Mrs.Thatcher. A Style Icon?

Some of Margaret Thatcher’s suits recently went under the hammer. How could I have possibly missed this fashion extravaganza? I am whispering that in case the Fashion Police heard. Please don’t confuse this post with a mis-guided… Continue reading

What Does One Wear To A 60th Birthday Picnic?

This isn’t a question I ask myself on a daily basis but I did give it plenty of thought a couple of weeks ago when we headed to Witley Court in Worcestershire for a… Continue reading

The Godmother Rocks!

Mixing Animal Prints. Yay Or Nay?

I broke with convention today and decided I’d shake my pre-birthday outfit up with a mix of animal prints. No, I am not auditioning for a part in TOWIE rather I wanted to see… Continue reading

Cruising The River Severn In A Spotty Dress

I love last minute plans and I love spending time in, near or on the water even more. If it’s with friends then even better. Throw a bottle of Pimms into the mix and… Continue reading

Supergirl boots!

Supergirl boots!

These arrived this morning… a pair of Roc boots which look distinctly like the ones Supergirl wore in that cheesy 1980’s movie.

I got them off of eBay for £5. Am reserving judgment on them until I can make them work with an outfit. Will keep you posted.

Come back tomorrow to see my outfit of the month for September. Really excited about it as I picked it up from a charity shop earlier this week and haven’t had time to try it on yet.

Ciao for now, enjoy this glorious sun peeps.
