Frilly Sundae [Hell Bunny]

Do I start singing Lonely Island’s ‘Lazy Sunday’ to myself every time I see this Frilly Sundae dress by Hell Bunny? Yes, of course I do. Am I embarrassed to admit that? No, of course I’m not. Is it a cute-ass dress? Yes, of course it is, let’s stop messing around with this nonsense and take a look at it!

Ukulele Summer [Hell Bunny]

It’s that time of year when the sun is playing coy with us here in the UK; bright one day, snowing the next (no, literally, today it’s snowing up north, but yesterday we had a lovely sunny day here down south.) So when there’s a chance to throw on a summery dress, boy does it feel glorious. And it doesn’t get much more summery than this tropical little Hell Bunny number.

Spring Chantilly [Hell Bunny]

Y’aaaaall, it’s finally springtime! Well, for us northern hemisphere folks, that is. Spring is always my favourite time of year, but this year it is definitely a figurative and literal breath of fresh air. A balm for lockdown blues, a sunny salve for the seasonally disheartened–just damn lovely, really. As much as I’ve been enjoying my recent downtime of not blogging so much (wow, not being allowed to leave the house really takes it out of you, huh??), it was so nice yesterday to unpack a parcel of new Hell Bunny spring/summer goodies and to dash out into the sun to take some pictures for you. Was it cold as heck, despite the sunny glow in these pictures? Hell yes! Am I thrilled to be sharing with you my first summery dress of the season, with the promise of cautious garden hangouts beckoning on the flowering horizon? YES! Let’s go.

Darla’s A Wrap [Rock’n’Romance Vintage]

If there’s one item that can work in everybody’s closet, it’s a wrap blouse. It’s a staple that will serve vintage lovers and modern dressers alike, looking great worn with swing skirts and pencils as well as over dresses, delightful atop swing trousers or jeans, even cute paired with a mini skirt. A good basic is, after all, a good basic, but this Darla Blouse is just a little bit more special than that.

Little Leopard Trim [Dolly & Dotty]

While I have become quite a leopard print devotee over the past few years, I can still understand how the print might not be the top choice for many folks. Wearing it requires confidence–and a healthy scoop of sass in some instances–but there’s plenty of ways to utilize the print for those who don’t feel totally at home rocking a full leopard print item of clothing. Instead, one could opt for a leopard print statement accessory in a headscarf, handbag. or pair of shoes. Or, simpler still, one could grab this leopard trimmed Cindy dress by Dolly & Dotty, which has the perfect splash of leopard designed for you.

Sweet Suit, Faux Suit [Miss Candyfloss]

One of the things I find myself most coveting about mid-century fashion when I watch content set in that era is the fabulous skirt suit sets. These days if you want to wear a skirt suit you have to find a pencil skirt and matching blazer on the high street, and, let’s face it, the up-down way modern clothing is cut just doesn’t compete with the curves and silhouettes that mid-century designs celebrated. And the idea that you might want a flared skirt as part of your suit set? Forget it, not happening. Well, unless you shop with Miss Candyfloss, who not only create killer jackets and skirts most seasons to fulfill this most ardently loved of style designs, but have also cleverly created several dresses this season that are design to look like suit sets. Check out this beauty!

Tamrika Love [Miss Candyfloss]

Certain colours get largely overlooked in the vintage style world, one of which I would say is khaki. It wouldn’t typically be a colour I would pine for, so close to me is its association to the multi-purpose trousers that were trendy when I was 11, but Miss Candyfloss can make any colour work, and goddamnit if they haven’t produced a stunning dress in the Tamrika-Sand!

Teal Petals [Miss Candyfloss]

There are certain design features that were utilized in mid-century clothing designs that just don’t get the appropriate level of use and adoration today as they should. One such feature is the petal neckline, but my goodness have Miss Candyfloss done it beautiful justice with this teal stunner.

A Jaunt to Brooklyn [Hell Bunny]

I’ll be the first to admit I have a lot of coats. Enough to cover all the bases–rainy weather, only slightly chilly, full on freezing, somewhat casual, full on glamour. I thought I had pretty much everything I needed, especially since I have two coats that feature faux fur. But it occurred to me that I don’t have a more ‘casual’ coat (but my standards) that also has faux fur. Because, as it turns out, that totally exists, and it’s awesome!
