Enchanted Vintage

  Oh, so another race week has come and gone and all the locals of Galway can breath a sigh of relief. Phew. Yes, of course it brings in a huge amount of people and creates a bit of a ‘buzz’ if you will, but, for those of us working in the hospitality trade, it …

Not another grey sky

Enchanted Vintage

I feel like this dress is really more of a spring dress, than a summer dress. Not that it matters since the season we call summer is currently playing hard to get. Im so sick of looking at the washed out grey/white sky. Blah. Uninspiring it is. So here I am in gorgeous patterned late 1950s …

Almost Summer

I can practically taste it. The last 4 or 5 weeks have been BRUTAL. Wind, rain, charming thick grey clouds and the occasional hailstone. The sun peeped out this morning and apparently, better still, we are about to experience…. wait for it….. a heat wave. Bah hahahhahahhahaha. I’ll believe it when I see it. Either way, at …

The Kids Are Alright

Enchanted Vintage

Last week, it was all about the dress, this week, its all about the hat. I’m in love with this hat.  Its 1940s and from the moment I put it on my head, I felt ridiculously glamorous, even though it was 10 in the morning and raining and I was hardly awake. I definitely felt like I was …

Not So Blue Hawaii

Enchanted Vintage

  Hawaii was the holiday destination in the 1950’s, with a dozen or so films being made there and the rest of Hollywood jumping aboard planes and cruise-ships for a visit, its popularity soared. It became the  United States 50th state in 1959. So, with all this going on, it is little surprise that fashions from Hawaii …

Playing Princess

Enchanted Vintage

Last week when we were taking the pictures of the wonderful 80’s lace dress, I also brought a cape along, just to experiment with. We’ve had it for awhile (as well as several others) and I love them but am at a loss at how best to photograph them. I am fully aware that it would work best with …

Black Lace Beauty

Enchanted Vintage

I know the 80’s is a decade a lot of people dont like to consider ‘real’ vintage, (yes Im talking to you mom) and I do know what they mean, but truth be told anything over 20 years old is considered vintage, which means much of my terrible 90’s fashion faux pas are also about …
