Adoring all things vintage, retro and downright quirky

The first addition to my 2010 wish-list is this rather eye-catching print by Anthony Burrill. This little beauty can be bought at Lollipop Shoppe for £33.  A most excellent start to the year!


nude magazine

Occasionally you come across one of those magazine that makes you drool, visually speaking, and for me the wonderful Nude Magzine does just that! The London-based mag covers counter-culture in all it’s craziness, from art and shopping to fashion and news. I think it’s great!

I met a lovely girl in Amsterdam called Nadine who runs a shop called ‘Wini’on Haarlemmer Straat (apparently this is now officially the best shopping street in the city – of course I’ve been saying this for years!) I bought some seventies silk scarves which am making into cushions for my new sofa (arriving on Saturday!!!) and she gave me a retro canvas bag for free, bless her! Here she is with a pair of boots that she customises for the shop. If you go to Amsterdam, pop in and say hi from me!

wini shop

Wini sells the best vintage clothing, and it’s really well priced. I also picked up a cute little cowboy hat brooch and had my eye on a jazzy skirt too, kicking myself for not buying it now! It also stocks an excellent range of vintage fabrics particularly lovely 50s patterned material.

Had to sneak in a picture of some shoes too…

Wini can be found at 29 Haarlemmerstraat, Amsterdam.
