Vintage Addiction Lola Dress

New Zealand boasts some wonderful retro boutiques and designers, the latest to pop up is Vintage Addiction! I first met Suzanne, the owner and designer, at the end of 2014 at the Auckland Pinup Bootcamp. At that point she had just started making her dresses and since then, […]

CurvyCouture Underskirt

Petticoats are for me, a essential part of a outfit if it’s a gathered or swing style. Earlier in the year I featured a comprehensive review of all the different types of petticoats I’ve tried and today I want to talk about the stiffened underskirt by CurvyCouture by […]

Custom Dyed Peasant Top

Before I start I want to say that I am no expert at dyeing clothing, I’ve only done it twice in my life! The first time it was out of necessity- on our first trip to the USA in 2013, I bought the Lavender Jenny Dress from the […]

Wilhelmina by Starlet Fever

Starlet Fever is a relatively new Australian designer, featuring lots of curve hugging wiggle dresses, bright colours and feminine prints. The Wilhelmina Gown in Ivory Print screams 60s glamour and I imagined it with a scarf and gloves on the streets of Paris. France is a long way to travel […]

The Jasmine Woodland Bloom Skirt

You all know I’m a sucker for floral prints, that’s pretty clear when looking through this blog or my Instagram feed! There are always a abundance of summery florals but not many in a darker, wintery colour palette. So when I find one, I jump on it pronto! The […]

The Bloom Effect

I love that New Zealand now boasts a multitude of brands that are designed and made right here in our beautiful little country. I was recently made aware of a small company from Christchurch called The Bloom Effect. The story behind The Bloom Effect is a remarkable and […]

Chicwish Floral Midi Skirt

It’s always exciting discovering new places to shop online and sometimes it’s in places you don’t quite expect. I found out about Chicwish through a Facebook group and whilst it’s style is not exclusively vintage style, they have some great skirts full swing skirts! When first looking through […]

My Favourite Things Giveaway

You  may have noticed a slight change in the design of the blog… I’ve recently switched over to self-hosted so I have more control and options plus I’ve also given the blog a makeover with a new banner from my bestie Miss Scarlet In The Ballroom. It’s very […]
