'Memories in pattern and colour'

Tag Archives: pin up

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!

Womens Smart Sandals - Trilby Hat in Red/White/Blue from Clarks shoes

Womens Smart Sandals – Trilby Hat in Red/White/Blue from Clarks shoes.

I just love these and the price of £22.49 is a bargain! Great for a last-minute vintage nautical look for the tag end of summer,  or save as a treat for next year, because lets face it nautical is always in fashion! 😀 Or if like me you are from the uk, show your support to team GB in these beauties 🙂

This weeks Wednesday wish dress is a real fairy tale vintage dream. Think totally girly, indulgent, cute, and pink! Normally I shy away from such girlyness, but this one is cute as a cupcake and too good to not share. The price tag of £350 although totally out of most people budgets ( Hence the Wednesday Wishes part) but for a dress so beautiful £350 could be considered money well spent. If you were so inclined this would make a great wedding dress for a quirky 50’s vintage girl! I just adore it!

DewVintage 1950's art design dress dressespink floral

This is one of my own 1950’s dresses, its made from a gorgeous hot pink flock and screen printed blossom fabric,and in a classic hourglass shape. Perfect for tea parties! The belt is a modern elastic belt, and I have added a vintage cardigan clip to it for decoration! The print is so spring like, I just had to share it with you. This dress is actually too big for me and so sadly I don’t get a chance to wear it, and due to age it has got lots of damage…someone has been at it with an iron making it all shiny and there is water stains and holes in various places! But despite all this it is a beauty and maybe when I get older and carry more weight I will wear it! Do any of you lovely followers have any 1950’s frocks? or dresses in a 1950’s style?
