The Gazebo.





This is in the gardens at Capesthorne Hall where the classic car show I went to on Sunday was in the grounds. My mum took these and isn't to great with a camera sometimes so I am sorry that they aren't amazing quality. I'm doing work experience all this week and haven't have time to think about much other than vintage (though lets be honest that's basically all i think about anyway...) I'm hoping to drag my brother and his fancy camera here soon so I can get some good shots as there is so many really pretty places to take photographs!

Now on to what I'm wearing, my mum actually found this dress at the back of one of the sale rails in peacocks and its only a size 18 so I was reluctant to try it but I'm so glad I did because it almost fits like a dream and is surprisingly comfortable! I think gem at Fat Frocks also has this dress if i recall and she looks lovely in it. And the price wasn't too shabby either at a tenner. My leggings are the usual from either Evans or Matalan I can't remember where. The shoes are from Peacocks and I'm in dire need of another pair before I ruin these I just love them so much and the socks were from Primark for 50 pence. I'm wearing my glasses because I was awfully tired and wanted to be able to see where I was going. I slept in plaits so my hair was wavy then just haphazardly stuck the headpiece I made on.

I can't wait to tell you all about my time at Vintage Life Magazine! I also go on holiday in a week and were hoping to get Internet there so I can still blog.

  3. subject: Paper Dress Vintage Collection Launch


    If you're fed up of uncovering a gem in your favorite vintage
    boutique which fails to fit, then this is the collection for you. If you're
    a fan of quality vintage fabrics and quirky original trimmings, then this
    is the collection for you...
    The Paper Dress Vintage collection transforms nine iconic, stylish shapes
    from the past 80 years into a bespoke range of elegant vintage garments
    which could slot into any ladies' wardrobe as perfectly now as the decade
    in which they were conceived.

    Rare and exclusive vintage fabrics are used in the collection,
    adorned with vintage trimmings, all sourced from extensive treasure
    hunts and created using hand-crafted, traditional techniques to ensure
    the highest quality throughout. The collection is unified in it's
    flattering,
    wearable nature; from the elegant 70’s-inspired Kimono Maxi to the
    high waisted 40’s Pencil Skirt, each piece has been designed with the
    modern figure in mind, using impeccable tailoring and intelligent pattern
    and fabric choice to elongate, emphasise and flatter today’s woman
    and her body.

    Each piece will be totally unique, though the basic shapes will
    remain the same, and incredibly environmentally friendly. The collection
    is available in 3 sizes: Small (8/10), Medium (10/12) and Large (12/14).Or alternatively you can come in to the studio and have items made to measure.

    check out the designs at www.paperdressvintage.co.uk

    or come down to our event on Thursday night in shoreditch, London
