12 Days of Vintage Christmas | Flying Silverware Anyone?

12 Days of Vintage Christmas | Flying Silverware Anyone?

On the second day of Christmas

Let’s face it, when we’re in love we all dream about flying silverware. Apparently enough for a table of twelve, oh and preferably in the new white orchid design because that’s what Mrs Jones down the road has.

No wonder she looks like she’s about to cry.

Don’t get me wrong, cutlery is great. Especially pretty cutlery. But if it’s a gift from my lover it better be singing ‘Be My Guest’ and dancing with a sexy feather duster.

I’ll take one of the retro mint coloured benchtop mixers though. Those are rad.
What’s your homewares unicorn? (if you say a glittery aqua benchtop mixer we’re gonna be BFF’s ).

Festively yours,

12 Days of Vintage Christmas | Festive Sheer?

12 Days of Vintage Christmas | Festive Sheer?

Introducing *drumroll please*

12 days of Vintage Christmas!

In the form of my favourite ridiculous print ads from the 1950’s and 60’s , one every day from now til Christmas day.

Because nothing makes me feel festive like cheesily marketed Christmas beer and knowing my husband will never gift me a vacuum cleaner.
So without further ado …

On the first day of Christmas

Be his Christmas star! In sheer lingerie and silky siren gowns, because this Christmas he’s giving you the gift  he wants to unwrap later. ( also because it’s day one and you gotta werk it before those mince pies hit your thighs ).

christmas-1

Seriously though, I would actually love anything from a Frederick’s of Hollywood catalogue. That gold dress is bangin’.

With style and sass,

Monday Style Tip No.33

enhance curves with ruffles

Fashion is like magic, you can create an illusion of something that’s not really there! Wear ruffles or frills around your bust, hips or bum to create a curvier silhouette or balance out your heavier areas.

Monday Style Tip No.32

nude-heels lengthen legs

Nude heels really can give the illusion of longer legs. Personally I feel drab in nude, so I go for a fun texture like these glitter heels or a two tone style to make my nude shoes feel a bit more glam.

Monday Style Tip No.31

cover regrowth or frizz with a cute beret

Cringing over your regrowth or fussing over flyaways? Cover a multitude of sins with an elegant beret a la Lauren Bacall in The Big Sleep. Or forget your hair and go watch The Big Sleep, it’s a classic and Bacall has a killer wardrobe.

Monday Style Tip No.29

 

Shoe clips add versatile glamour | Monday Style Tip

I’ve also used them as dress clips, brooches and hair accessories, so don’t feel like you can only use them on shoes!

Monday Style Tip No.28

one colour plus white is crisp and fresh | Monday Style tip

 

Struggle to pair colours? Try choosing just one colour and white for a quick and easy was to look fresh and chic. (for example a classic white shirt with blue jeans, a blue clutch and a blue statement necklace, or a yellow dress with a white belt, bag and shoes.)

Stylishly yours,
