Luxuriant Lounging [Fuller Figure Fuller Bust X Playful Promises]

I’ve always thought that you’re either a robe person or you’re not, and I think it largely runs in families. I’ve never been someone who bothers with robes–or at least I wasn’t, until I became a pinup. Suddenly the concept of a robe had so many more possibilities than just those bulky, drab toweling robes that…I don’t know, people presumably put on after showering if they can’t be bothered to dry off immediately?

Now robes could be slinky little numbers thrown over silk slips in the morning while brushing out my pincurls and applying my vintage makeup. They could have billowing bishop sleeves, indescribably soft marabou trim, yards and yards of fabric that swish as you walk, recline, answer the phone to the latest in the long line of suitors desperate for your company. They could be decadent. Since I met with this robe revelation I’ve picked up several of those short slinky numbers perfect for getting ready in, but I’d yet to get my eager hands on any of those truly luxurious options. That is, until now. And my word, once you go Glamour Robe, there’s no going back.

Claudia the Goddess [Deadly is the Female x Alexandra King]

You know how sometimes you see a dress and fall in love with it, but there’s a little niggling thought at the back of your mind that it just won’t work for you? That’s the experience I had with this dress by Alexandra King for Deadly is the Female. Thankfully, wonderfully, blissfully, I was wrong–and now I have a new favourite that will fit me not just any day of the week or month, but even if I drop a few dress sizes–yes, a few dress sizes, you read that right. How?? Let’s take a closer look at this unique piece.

DIY: How to Make A Bangle Rack

I’ve been on a bit of a bangle buying binge this year, which has resulted in my former bangle stands becoming obsolete. So, I moved all my bangles to the 3 small drawers at the top of my dresser…and then found they outgrew that within a couple months too. Suddenly, I needed a lot of storage, and preferably cheaply.

Every bangle stand I found online cost £20-50, and with the number of bangles I have I’d need at least 3. Plus I needed my stand(s) to be wall-mounted or vertically free standing, which really narrowed down my options. Finally I decided to get creative and make the rack I was envisioning, and I’m pleased to tell you it was easy and cheap.

Indiscreetly Fabulous [Banned Retro]

Figuring out the distinction between Banned and Dancing Days has become somewhat more confusing the last few months because now Banned Retro has been added into the mix. I think that is down to a rebranding that coincided with them finally launching their own retail website. That’s much appreciated news for me since tracking down specific items I wanted was always quite difficult before without access to a catalogue of product names, let alone a list of stockists who may have been carrying them. Now, all their pretties are shoppable in one place, and this particular pretty caught my eye, and then, once purchased, won over my heart. The Indiscreet bag is a gem!
