Adoring all things vintage, retro and downright quirky

Monthly Archives: February 2010

Cheesecake Vintage is a must for anyone who loves their skirts flirty and fifties with a side order of chic. It’s an Etsy store and more, and one I just had to flag up. Take this blue milinary netting, so pretty – only $12 and you can add it to your favourite hat.

This 1960s black, mod, mini-dress is so cute and would be a great option for the modern LBD. And you can’t argue with the price-tag -$54!

Here’s one more I picked out, a 1950s sun dress – it really embodies the era for me. Some vintage is a bit hit n miss and you would look out of place wearing it today, but this is so fresh and cute, I could see lots of office workers sitting about in the summer sun having lunch wearing this type of dress wih some ballerina pumps. Peachy! Again only $38 – bargain!

Happy huntin’…


Ahhh a breath of fresh air and a ray of sunshine, both desperately needed at the moment amid this dreary February weather – even my birthday was awash with snow and drizzle 😦 So in order to perk oneself up on such a day, I opt to shop and why not inject a splash of sunny colour into our homes.

I came across this Panton lamp which I find both bold and beautiful – ok so it’s a tad on the pricy side at £760 but it comes in some delicious colours and would certainly brighten up my living room!

How pretty are these retro flasks? Don’t they just make you hanker for spring time picnics? Wet grass and daffodils, lemonade and ploughman’s lunches? Good old Rose and Grey – £17.50 a piece.

Make your table sing like a songbird by dressing it with this sun-drenched felt yellow table protector from Notonthehighstreet.com. It costs £72 and is designed by Michelle Mason. I loves it!

Another lovely from the very same talented lady is this juicy Seville cushion. I can see it perched on a Lloyd Loom chair with the sunlight spilling in over it (God, I really need spring to hurry up!)

I hope these inspire you to feel better about the miserable weather!
