enchanted vintage

I could give you any number of reasons why, without warning, I stopped posting on my blog

  • My hands fell off and I’ve been busy learning to type with my toes
  • My cat ate my laptop
  • I was abducted by aliens
  • I won the lotto (finally) and I’ve been far to busy shopping at Dior and Vuitton.. pbhhtt

Ok, I’ll just be honest, but its not as interesting as the other 4 options. I just ran out out of things to say. Ha, now, I know that the people that know me, are busy clutching their sides and LOLing all over the place. Moi? Out of things to say? Not likely.


Blog Event Spring/Summer shows 2012

Every now and again I participate in a group blogging event; this time I am joining Kristy Elena on her blog for The Sunglass Hut and the theme of the day is the 2012 S/S shows . I must confess, up until I received the email from Kristy about the upcoming event, I hadn’t paid much attention to the recent shows. The S/S shows tend to bore me. Either way I had a serious study session on Vogue.co.uk to catch up. ok serious study may be a slight exaggeration.

The Shows


Vintage Viewing

My new tv love. Pan Am. I know it’s been getting mixed reviews since it aired, but I watched the first 5 episodes online yesterday (call it, research, ah hem) and I’m hooked. I love the characters, I love the clothes!

Christina Ricci’s character is my favorite, but I cant wait to see how the other characters develop in the next few episodes, I just really hope they dont cancel it after one season.  This is just the fix I needed, while I patiently wait for Mad Men, True Blood and Game of Thrones to come back. (I know, whatanerd)


Viva Espana

I’m back. I’ve returned from the blissful care free life of sunshine, sangria, and eating tapas. Lots and lots of tapas. Tapas for breakfast, tapas for lunch, tapas for dinner. I can officially say, I’m done with tapas….for now.

We, as in the boy and I, went to Malaga, Seville and Madrid. The winner was definitely Seville. Perfect size city for getting around and so much beautiful scenery. As I have mentioned before, (and Im sure you’ve noticed) I am not the best for taking photographs while away. I am lazy. The camera, is at times a chore, to carry about, get in and out of the bag… like I said. Lazy. All the same, I persevered, for myself and the blog.


Off to a nicer place

Im off to Spain for a few days… consequently I will not be posting anything on the blog until October. Try not to miss me too much. I will be off finally enjoying the sunshine that I am always moaning about missing. I am going to be tanned (yes yes I know sun damage blah blah)

I am also NOT going to forget my camera, so I should have plenty of entertaining stories and photographs to share with you when I get back as well as the next installment on my vintage model mini series.

Adios amigos! :)


Film Festival Fashion

Its raining. Again. WTF. Usually September weather is decent. So far it has been a big disappointment, much like that joke of a summer we just had. Worst one ever. Blah. Am I always moaning about the weather? Yes. I know, Im sorry. Im off on holidays in 2 weeks. Thank f**k. Sunshine, real live sunshine. I cant wait.

Ok rant over. (for today) This morning I spotted this gorgeous picture of Kiera Knightley on the Marie Claire website.


Links a La Mode

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Last night while I was out enjoying just 1* glass of wine (eh hem) I saw in my emails that I had been selected for this weeks Independent Fashion Bloggers weekly round up, with my last post Balmain, past and present. Rather chuffed I was. So here it is along with 19 other wonderful links for you to check out over the weekend.. enjoy! :)

Its all about Burlesque

On Saturday, I went to Dublin to visit a very good friend of mine and she brought me to my first burlesque show. (Long overdue it was)  The show was amazing, plenty of talented acts, lots of dancing and laughs. I cant wait to go to another one. (ciara you have been warned)

Naturally it made me  want to gather a collection of vintage burlesque photographs, which is exactly what I did for your viewing pleasure. They do not disappoint. I could look at pictures like these all day, (because they are fabulous NOT because Im a perv)

Mildred Pierce part 2

Oh crap, its Thursday. Where does the time go anyway? This week has totally gotten away from me again and Im sorry! I’m afraid this will only be a quick post and my only one from this week as I am off to London with the man for a weekend shop, erm, I mean break… obviously. Since I am taking the weekend off, as a consequence I’ve been up to my eyeballs at work leaving very little time to blog. Ill be back next week with more London stories and hopefully some vintage purchases to share with you!
