I’ve Got the Blues

28 Oct

Today, I am feeling blue. Not in a bad way though. I’ve recently been in love with all things nautical. (Which I am now convinced is mandatory for any vintage loving gal.) I’ve amassed several such items over the years and to keep from overflowing, I’ve added many pieces of my personal collection to the shop. Here are just a few that are there, and keep a look out for more!!

Navy Shoes Blues

Navy Shoes Blues: Canvas shoes are the perfect laid back answer to stilettos. Unfortunately for me, they were a little to snug for anything but taking pictures.

Mod Hatter

The Mod Hatter: I acquired this hat several years ago, but because I’m more Elizabeth Taylor rather than Twiggy, it got little use. I still think it’s lovely, but it needs someone to love it.

Blue Belle

Blue Belle: This dress is a great canvas for all your nautical looks. I wore it with a ‘kerchief around my neck a la’ retro flight stewardess. It’s really an easy care piece; throw it on and go, toss it in the wash, dry and repeat!

Nautical Juice Glasses

Nautical Juice Glasses: These pulled together my love for all things nautical and retro in my kitchen. Would be perfect in your coastal kitchen or on your yacht, of course.

Couldn’t wait for Autumn

20 Mar

I’ve been severely under the weather for the past week. Like, could barely get out of bed sick. So I have tons of errands to catch up on. I’m still not quite up to snuff, but better. I refuse to go out looking like I actually feel, and I know wearing pretty things makes me feel better, even if it’s merely an illusion. So the focal point of today’s outfit is a fun late 50’s early 60’s batik print dress with a fantastic scalloped edge running around the collar and down the front. (I really bought it to wear this Autumn.) I paired it with an orangey-red straw hat, geometric plastic beaded necklace, brown leather belt, my new favorite cat-eyed shades and 60’s wedge shoes. I’m still on the lookout for coloured Bakelite bangles to pair with this. Since it’s such a busy print, I didn’t want to wear a brooch.

Leopard for Life

30 Jan

Today is super nice, especially for January. It’s 54F and not a cloud in the sky! I had some errands to run today, and being one of the most mundane tasks it seemed like leopard print anything would help. So to carry on, since I couldn’t just wrap myself in the satin leopard print sheets I snoozed on, I pranced around today in my favorite Steve Madden heels. Seeing as my shoes were “wild”, I just paired them with one of my vintage LBDs.

Not having a tripod or a photographer…you get mirror shots with a phone.

Leopard Love!
