New Black Hair

Dyed my hair black a couple of weeks ago, guess how many times I've been told I look like Dita von Teese?

Platform Shoe Envy

I've been scouring the web for some new shoes, and I have long had my suspicions that the late 30s & 1940s platform is the ultimate shoe. These pairs definitely confirm it!

Lazy Day Outfit

Just a quick outfit post of what I wear on a lazy day. Everything's from the high street and especially comfy. Had to make the legs of the trousers narrower and take them up, as I'm too short to get away with them being super baggy! Also shortened the cardigan following Casey's tutorial.

Trousers: Vivien of Holloway / Blouse: Zara / Cardigan: H&M / Shoes: Office / Headscarf: made by me

Wants for March

The slow change towards warmer spring weather means I'm planning my spring wardrobe, and I can't help but find items to lust over, just thought I'd share them with you.

I've been imagining something such as this sailor blouse by Tara Starlet for ages, and absolutely love it! However I may try and sew it as I have some navy chiffon in my fabric stash.

Came across this crochet cardigan from Topshop, which they also do in mustard yellow, I must own one of them!

I'm in love with this jacket also from Tara Starlet, though don't think I can afford it though so instead am planning to make a jacket from the below pattern if I get the time.

This just seemed like a fairly straightforward yet stylish jacket pattern, let's see if I ever get round to making it though!

Not strictly vintage, and yet I just love these shoes by Irregular Choice, they remind me of Cruella de Vil!
