I love all seasons in their own very special way. Summer is a bit more difficult for me to love, as I have very sensitive skin, but it is nothing a good sunblock and a parasol or a hat can’t cure! Now, as some of you may have already noticed, as of last Autumn, I have started modelling for a wonderful new vintage style shop called Rose and Brimstone. My love for small businesses is no secret, and I am always delighted when I get to be a part of their journey and growth! Rose and Brimstone have an adorable brick and mortar shop inRead More →

As I am located in Europe, most of the shops and brands I review are also European. That’s why it’s always a special treat when I get to review a shop from another continent. And if the owner happens to be a wonderful retro lady herself, then that’s cause for a small celebration! This week I have the pleasure of reviewing just such a shop. The Retro Raven is a small American brand that has recently started making waves in the retro and pinup community with their adorable and unique designs . They specialize in glittery resin-cast pins and brooches, which is what drew meRead More →

I got my first Rock n Romance shirt last summer, but I knew their shop for much longer. What first drew me to them was their taste and selection of brands. Alongside their house brand, Rock n Romance, they also stock The Seamstress of Bloomsbury, Emmy Design, Daisy Dapper, Dupenny and Elements Rainwear; all brands known for their attention to design and details, most of them leaning heavily towards the 1940’s.   I was online window-shopping on my vacation this summer, and immediately fell in love with their black Grace blouse with contrast piping and buttons. The moment it arrived, I became their undying fan!Read More →

I promised you this post last week, but my exams got in the way! Now that I finally have some time for a blog post again, I am excited to tell you about the Callous Crow t-shirts.   Now, while you don’t really see me in t-shirts on my page or blog, or Instagram (shameless self-promotion here), I own a pretty big collection of them, as they are my go-to hiking gear and favourite thing to wear with a pair of vintage style jeans.  Most of them are silkscreen t-shirts ranging from band shirts to (and these are in the majority), nerdy and geeky t-shirts,Read More →

The recipe is as follows: Take original designs, a dash of cute, a dash of creepy, a whole bucket full of glitter, and seal it all in resin. What you get is Atomic Lace, whose owner, Laura Michele, cooks up something new and wonderful on an almost daily basis. I’ve been eyeing her designs for a while, and so I wrote to her and asked her if she’d be interested in a review, and she said yes!  She was sweet enough to send me some new designs, and some of my choosing, and while you’ll be seeing the new designs a bit later, here areRead More →

A while ago I contacted The Black Cat Jewellery Store and asked them if they would be interested in a collab, and they were! After that I had the sweet suffering of picking out exactly what I want to parade in front of a camera, and the choice came down to a bat shaped bracelet, a bat shaped necklace and a teardrop pendant. Quite a batty selection, but then again, I am rather fond of them. The shoot for this was also my first time working with Villy, and I was so prepared for everything, I packed what I wanted to wear, I packed theRead More →
