Adoring all things vintage, whimsical and downright quirky

Category Archives: Vintage clothes

It’s that time of year again, when we wrack our brains for ideas of what gifts we would like to find nestled under the Christmas tree…
So I’m going to be awfully helpful to you ladies, and infuse your day with some divine inspiration in the form of these elegant, beautifully designed, British made items of lingerie. I guarantee, they will not only make you feel like a bonefide Hollywood screen siren, but if you have one, they will most likely go down pretty well with your other halves. Drop those hints, ladies!

Channel your inner Garbo and immerse yourself in pure Hollywood glamour with this 1930’s lounging robe in peach, £85 from What Katie Did.
What Katie Did creates such pretty colourful seamed stockings from just £10 a pair! I love the baby blue hues.
Satin french knickers, £31 from Pandora’s Choice – coupled with the bullet bra for a totally authentic shape and style (and comfort too!)
Be seen to be chic collecting the milk from the doorstep in the Shelly Midnight blue three piece pyjama set – £79 from Kiss Me Deadly. It includes a pretty cami top, satin bottoms and a gorgeous wrap around robe!
How sweet is this Bettie Page long line over wired emerald bra, £50, by Playful Promises, available from Kiss Me Deadly Lingerie?
Cinch that waist with the Cupcake waspie suspenders, £138 from Buttress and Snatch.
A pretty pink cotton poplin waspie boned suspender belt which is beautifully trimmed with a sweet broiderie anglaise and oodles of frills, lace and satin.

You can always rely on a pair of pretty red shoes to lift the spirits on a Wednesday morning – and aren’t these just peachy? These Chia Mihara Osmo sandals (yes, really!) cost £225 and I found them on a rather nifty little online vintage-inspired boutique called Ruby Plum. Choc full with gorgeous dresses, knits and bags, the only problem is deciding what to keep in my basket!

I have had my eye on this Marianne bag (£130) for some time and may have to start dropping some p-r-e-t-t-y heavy hints soon to the other half. Surely I deserve it?!?!!
