Welcome to 2011!

Happy New Year everybody! Didn’t Christmas just fly by? I hope you all had a thoroughly enjoyable time and that Santa delivered everything he was supposed to!
 
I would like to start by welcoming my new readers, due to a couple of interviews I have done lately I seem to have gained quite a few, so welcome one and all!
 
So I do believe 2011 will be the year of the Beehive for me! I’m getting pretty quick at whipping up the backcombed B52 and I love how fun and retro the style looks!


The dress is vintage and was a Christmas present from last year, it’s so soft and comfortable, with a really unusual cut – lots of draping and a fabulous drop waist!
The earrings were an eBay find, it’s been a while since I wore big earrings!
So I know I have been dreadfully absent when it comes to my blog, but I can assure you I have been productive in some ways!
I finally framed all of the vintage seaside photos I collected last year, and I am so happy with the results…
(I’ve yet to hang it!)
 
I’ve also been kept busy by some of the fabulous Christmas presents I received.
Including these books…
I highly recommend all three! I’m really enjoying them all – however it must be said that the McQueen book is BEAUTIFUL!
 
Oh and check out who is looking pretty happy on Christmas day after finally getting hold of a copy of ‘Bright Young Things’…well worth the wait, if you haven’t seen this film, then you simply must! It’s a real treasure full to the brim of incredible 1920’s costumes!
 
 
 
More soon, including sneaky peaks at my designs for my new business venture!
Very exciting!
 
Love Yours Truly, x

    I am totally weighing up in my mind next time I go to the salon to get or not to get a fringe like yours, I love it.

    My roommate brought home Bright Young Things one day, and we immediately watched it…everything was so lush and extravagently done, it was a marvel to watch.

  12. Your hair looks lovely, and that dress is such a good print! I managed to get hold of Bright Young Things a few years ago, but you’ve reminded me that I must watch it again! I think I had to get an import version on eBay in the end!

    Ive been trying to master a beehive, im nearly there. Have to cheat though and use a bumpit, can’t get the backcombing quite right.
    Im a new follower and extremely jealous of all your pretty clothes!

  24. 1) The beehive suits you.
    2) Your first picture here made me think of Joan on Mad Men.
    3) I just finished Eat, Pray, Love. It is so good.
