She’s a Lady

I have been busy with personal issues and I have decided to move the shop opening to next month. Things have changed drastically in my life and I am a bit uncertain about the future. 
Anyway…Don’t worry! I will open the shop and keep up with the blog. 
The other day, while looking for garments suitable for the shop, I came across a beautiful dress that I was intending to sell. Not anymore ’cause it is so gorgeous that I had to keep it!

It is a late 50s/early 60s dress from a Spanish designer in perfect condition and has pockets!

I was so excited to keep it that I had to get some photographs on it. Excuse the bad quality photos, but I had to take that opportunity to get pictured with my “new” hair! 
All shots taken in my grandma’s flat, which, as you can see, is like being in a Film set. 

Have a lovely week, folks!

Bathing Beauties: The Nifty 50s

Ah, the 50s! Fabulous days in the sun, huh? Back when people didn’t have smartphones and electronic devices, beach days were filled with photographers, sufers and young couples often accompanied by friends (at least in Spain, where unmarried couples were often watched over to ensure they wouldn’t do inappropiate things).
In the mid 40s a new type of swimwear came out: shorter swimsuits and two pieced suits would soon hit the beaches, especially in the 50s. Women would no longer be afraid of showing off their bodies, and the popularity of the two pieced bathing suit (which later on would evolve into the bikini) encouraged more women to go to the beach to get a tan.

Those were the days! No worries, just fun in the sun 🙂
