Vintage inspiration today my lovely Grandma Caroline! Always classy!! Miss her everyday!
It's been a pretty busy week so I habe a lot of catching up to do for #thevintagefashionchallenge
Day 23: Got away. With a limited budget, and small sizes of vintage clothes, there are a lot of items that I sadly can only admire from afar.
Day 24 & 25: eye candy and inspiration. I recently have gotten a lot of my inspiration from tv shows like mad men and Marvelous Mrs Maisel. I just love the wardrobe of these shows so much and that's half the reason I watch them. .

day 25: inspiration.
Well as I've already shared some of my knitting and sewing patterns for inspiration I'm going to share one of the most inspiring tv show with you, home fires. Sure there are lots of old and new tv shows and movies with great clothing but home fires is one of the most amazing and wearable in my everyday life type of costuming. Not some ultra glamorous in my dreams I look like that in my gorgous clothes type but easy to wear everyday clothes. It's stuff that I'd really wear and actually do wear.

Its Day 25 of #thevintagefashionchallenge
and today's theme is Inspiration. I'm a little relieved I don't have to post pics of myself this week because I've been super sick! So today I thought I'd post some stills from a few of the first films I saw that got me into vintage style.
1. One of my favorite leading ladies, Barbara Stanwyck, in one of my favorite films, The Lady Eve, which I first saw on TCM.
2. Pandora's Box hypnotized me when I first saw it in college. I love everything Louise wears and her performance.
3. I rented Garbo Silents from Blockbuster as a teen and fell in love with her looks in Devil & the Flesh!
4. I watched Cabin in the Sky as part of a film class and could not look away anytime Lena Horne was on the screen. Her hair, her outfits, and her presence are perfection.

A Peony for me & a Peony for you. Happy Friday, lovelies! 💕
Check out my stories for a peek at what I unearthed yesterday during my mini road trip. All coming to the shop soon (please, no tags or presales at this time 😘).
So I finally completed the customisation of a hat I’ve been hankering over for some time, inspired by many photos and film I’ve collected over time. A cross between a Bergere, a straw boater and an Edwardian flat brimmed Caronier.
I began with a very inexpensive straw boater from Primark, cut down the crown piece to sit lower, reduced the rim size and added black velvet ribbon to the crown and as a tie. Please note there are some fabulous hat designs & creators available Ive just produced this for myself as an inexpensive option and thrifty make that may inspire. I do not produce this to sell. I am not a milliner 💗
