Onto Bigger and Better Things...
Believe it or not, I have moved house five times in the last four years! On 7th May it all begins again, as I am moving just out of Brighton, to the countryside north of Lewes. I am a real country bumpkin at heart and it has taken quite a while to be able t...

Late Forties Do's

Christmas Is A Comin'
Hello everyone, and hello December! Haven't these past months flown, it seems barely any time since I was thinking about a transitional wardrobe! Since I last blogged, I have had what can only be described as a vintage siesta. It turns out that moving house...

Pin Up Girl
A while ago, I treated myself to the musical film Pin Up Girl. Featuring Betty Grable at her best, it is an all singing and dancing outfit and hair fest. Made in 1944, the film really showed how iconic Grable was during WW2, even using THAT famous swimsuit ...

The Edge of Love
Ok, I have a confession. I am a big Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller fan. They may split opinion on their acting ability, but it surely can't be disputed how beautiful they are?! The Edge of Love even has the Brucie Bonus of not just Keira and Sienna, but ...
