'Memories in pattern and colour'

Category Archives: Vintage fashion

I found this little programme for a tiny price of 25p at a local vintage shop. It was the front cover that drew me in, and then as I flicked through the pages I saw some lovely examples of high-end fashion from the time.

It is such a step back in time, and as I flick through the pages I can imagine my self at the theatre, dressed up to the nines in my art deco beaded attire! The adverts are aimed at ladies with money, and really brings back the allure of the luxury of the time! Glorious!

Enjoy!

This is the second time me and my sister have popped along to this wonderful event. This time we even took our lovely mum, so its was a fantastic girly day out for us! We even found time for tea and *the most amazing* cake in a pop up vintage cafe. Tea and cake are always better when served on vintage mismatched crockery, don’t you think?!  Unfortunately I forgot to take any pictures, so all pictures are courtesy of vintagebrighton.com but check all the vintageness that was on offer!

My bargain purchases of the day were a £1 costume ring, made off brass with glass diamontes, and a 1960’s shift dress which is in pristine condition and made from the most amazing marbled vibrant fabric.  I cant wait for the weather to improve so i can wear it this summer! Unfortunately it is snowing here today, so it may have to make itself comfy in my wardrobe for many weeks to come!

Please excuse the poor quality of this photo, this is the first post I have made using my smart phone, but as you can see the camera is shoddy! But ah well, I hope to do more picture posts whilst on the move in the future. Although I certainly think you can’t beat a proper camera and a good sit down at the computer! This print cheered me up today, I found it in Dorothy Perkins on the sale rail, whilst desperately looking for some jeans. As I am sure you know looking for jeans can be tiring and not always fruitful, so to find this joyful little ditty print made me smile, and took my denim blues away!


December is creeping up on us pretty quick, and pretty soon it will be Crimbo, which means one thing. Money is tight!

Sooooo, us ladies always like a hand  bag or two and so this Wednesday I am finding vintage bags for under £15! They could be a sneaky cheap pre Christmas treat for you, or a bargain gift for a loved one.

So here are my top picks, I love them all, but the first and the last are my favourites! I love them!
