A vintage lifestyle blog from a girl who loves the 1950s!

At the beginning of November, I celebrated my Dad's Birthday with a Sunday Roast Dinner at a restaurant in Romsey.
I have been keen to wear this cute yellow sweater ever since I purchased it at the Bows and Braces Vintage Fair back in August but wanted to wait until the weather was cold enough to wear a sweater and it certainly is now! I don't know if the details will show up well on my photos but it is a 1930s piece and has beading all over it! It has been really difficult finding small sized vintage sweaters so I was really happy to see this was in my size! I also couldn't resist adding another recent acquisition - the Bakelite Scottie brooch which I bought from Tamara Watts at the Clerkenwell Fair (she had some AMAZING items!)
You can also see the hat I purchased from Lou Lou's Vintage Fair back in October. When I tried this hat on at the fair, I wasn't immediately sold on it but my friend convinced me to buy it and I am so glad she did because I now love it! The colour, the style, it fits perfectly! I find it quite difficult to buy vintage hats because a lot of them look better on girls with longer hair, so whenever I see a hat that suits me, I tend to snap it up!
I am also wearing my new 1940s coat which I bought in Bath when I went to visit the Gangsters and Gunslingers exhibition. It has such a lovely shape and also works really well with my fox fur stole (as I am sure you will see in some future posts!)
