I know it’s been a while since my last outfit review, but today I’m featuring a dress from one of my favorite brands: Vivien of Holloway. This UK based vintage reproduction clothing company specializes in 1940s and 1950s fashion, and has been around since 2000.
Following my Miss Sixties Around The World Series, today it’s time to make a stop in Las Vegas. We wanted to visit Sin City (as they call it) to attend Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, which I’ll write about soon in another post, and let’s say it was wonderful. This is my second collaboration with artist Alice Negri, so make sure to read the post to find her amazing illustrated map of Las Vegas!
Summer is finally here, which means it’s the time to wear hawaiian and tropical pieces everywhere I go. And by everywhere, I also mean the office. Today I’ll be reviewing the Annie Fitted Dress from Lady Vintage, a vintage reproduction brand from the United Kingdom. They’ve become a favorite! And it’s easy to see why.
Now that it’s been two months since my trip to the United States and I’m finally settled in, I’d like to show you what I visited during my stay in the USA. One of the cities I wanted to visit the most was Palm Springs, right in the middle of the California desert. And just as I expected, it didn’t disappoint me.
Besides dresses and skirts, t-shirts are another basic in my wardrobe. I’m not lying If I tell you I have over 50 different designs, either band merch, vintage inspired t-shirts or tees designed by illustrators such as El Marquès. I’m glad to feature on the blog the work of this Barcelona based artist known for his illustrations with a vintage touch.
Last year I decided to have some time for myself in Japan. I had wanted to visit this country since I was a little girl but money, schedules and other interests always got in the way. But when a friend decided to move there last year, I knew it would be the perfect excuse to visit the country. Continue reading to see what I got to explore while in Japan! I know I’m a bit late…but work and other blog priorities all got on the way.
Nobody said the pin up girl life would be easy, especially when you have to pack to travel abroad. And by abroad I mean somewhere far away from where you live. To me, this means the United States of America. Since I’m travelling to California and Nevada in April and I’m already planning everything in order to fit everything in one (maybe two!) suitcases, I thought it would be good to write a blog post with some packing tips. So here they go!
Besame Cosmetics has been a favourite of mine since I got into vintage. I came across their vintage inspired makeup some years ago and in 2015 I got the chance to visit their store in Burbank, California. It’s impossible to not fall in love with their stuff. Today I’m glad to show you (and review) some of my top picks from Besame Cosmetics.
Fancy a trip to Hogwarts School of Witchraft and Wizardry? Come with me! If you’ve followed me for a while you might have already discovered my obsession with the Harry Potter series. J.K. Rowling’s books helped me discover a world I never imagined could exist in my mind, and they also helped me discover the noble art of reading. It may sound odd but, if it weren’t for Harry Potter and his friends, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today. So relax, have your wand ready and come with me on this enchanting journey.
