Fancy a victorian verandah, a rolled top bath, just a stone’s throw from your bedside? Then check out this stunning Australian 1860s miner’s cottage styled by Kali Cavanagh. Sometimes you just can’t beat period features… Photography by Armelle Habib
I wasn’t intending on writing another post about Paris fashion week but I’ve been bitten by the bug! For any vintage aficionado Maison Martin Margiela’s AW14 collection was just full of inspiration – and a real direction change from previous seasons. Tweed and vintage slips – what more can a girl ask for? Long may it last!

Meet Fifi Lapin. You might have seen her about – mainly at fashion shows. As blogs go this is inspired – taking fashion illustration to a new level. Love, love, love….. Snowy is sitting on my lap right now and asking why I haven’t designed a Chanel/ Prada wardrobe for her!

Stepping into the world of Rimel Neffati is like watching everything through a cloud of charcoal and starlight. The images could almost be illustrations in their surreality. But how magical are they – as if unearthed from some fantasy circus? Definitely one to explore further… Happy New Year!
Rather loving these moody, vintage pics from The Gifts of Life tumblr. I love that indian sheer top – can that really be vintage? If so please can it make it’s way to Syd’s Vintage in Kirkdale so I can purchase it?

I was reminded today that posts have been a little sparse of late. So I thought it was about time I showed you what I’ve been up to the last three months. One of the assignments at LCF was to compose a blog where all our written pieces could sit – an umbrella, one could say, with a central theme. Not an easy task, when your interviewing whoever you can get hold of, and just hoping that you might come […]
