Buying vintage can be tough. Finding that perfect piece can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Once you find it there no guarantee it’ll fit even if it is your size as they can vary depending on the decade and style. This skirt was a pretty special find by my big sis at the awesome Glad Rags Thrift.

What is it about clothing that makes me just have to have it? Everything else I can resist or logically consider whether the cost is worth the return. When it comes to fashion though my brain comes up with all sorts of crazy justifications for why I have to have it.

I’m a fashion blogger apparently but everything I am wearing here is old and no longer available. And that is something that happens quite regularly here. I read a lot of fashion blogs, a lot. Most are full of brand new pieces, links to buy them and quite often from high end or designer stores. As much as I’d love it, I realise I will never have that kinda of blog.

Snow, a little dusting can make anything beautiful, and so quiet too. Yesterday morning it started snowing and just didn’t stop. So we layered up against the cold, wandered through the peacefulness with our boy, and just forgot about everything. Bliss.

Saturday was rewind so my nails needed some serious eighties neon. Pink and yellow selected fairly quickly now what design to go for? I was inspired by those awesome eighties cartoon superheroes who had bright lightening bolts flying around. My tip for these is to paint the design in white first then add the yellow on top. This is much easier than trying to outline … Continue reading Jump On That Lightening Bolt
It’s been a full two weeks since my last outfit post, where have I been? Well, life has been pretty busy, standard blogger excuse I know. And, my photographer has been ill. A new one and genuine one. Not a dog ate my homework kinda excuse though, if my photos were printed I’m sure Seb would give them at least a little taste. My photographer … Continue reading I Aint’t Gonna Live Forever, I just wanna live while I’m Alive
When you have a 5yrs old girl staying there’s lots if Barbie pink around. Similarly when you ask your niece to pick a nail colour this Barbie pink is selected without hesitation. Unfortunately I didn’t have a similar non shellac colour for her nails but managed to avoid tears with a pretty lilac thankfully. My nails are so hideously short right now I wasn’t sure … Continue reading I’m a Barbie Girl
Can you tell it’s almost holiday time? I think the only time my toe nails feature on wed-nails-day is in the run up to a holiday. On Friday I’m off to Marbella for my future sister in laws hen do. I suspect it is going to be carnage but I’m excited for my first girly holiday, another one ticked of my 35 at 35 … Continue reading I Can See the Sands on the Horizon
Catching a few shots before the sun goes down. Even this industrial part of the River Clyde looks beautiful at this time of the day. This hour before the sun goes down, the golden hour, is supposed to be the best time to take photos. Honestly, I struggled with the light. Really need to find a photography course to help me get to grips … Continue reading The Boardwalk
Now pink is not a colour I wear often. You know when you see something and are just drawn to it? That’s what happened with these trousers. It helped that they were half price in the ASOS sale. With all the junk food I consumed over Christmas I thought that they either wouldn’t fit or if they did wouldn’t look anything like they did on … Continue reading Cause It’s Pink Friday
