Well I'm still sick, went to the docs today and it turns out I have bronchitis which in itself isn't serious, but it's very annoying & brings you down, anyway they've given me antibiotics and as I'm not one to take much medication I'm sure I'll be on the mend in no time!
So as I have pretty much been sat on the sofa for nearly a week now coughing my guts up I've done a lot of internet surfing.
Today the sun is shining, it's a beautiful day, I'm under no illusions it's February and I live in the UK, it doesn't mean Spring is here, but it does have me looking forward to wearing something more summery again!
As I was trawling through Etsy it got me to thinking about our particular loves within vintage clothing, my era is definately 50s but within that there are certain things I like and don't like.
Here is something I definately like a lot!
This is currently on Etsy in Wear it Again Sam's store ok well on Etsy they're called Wear it Again, but the shop itself is Wear It Again Sam. Actually I like a lot of their stock, they are very much to my taste. I've been lucky enough to visit the store when in San Diego and loved it, I nearly walked out of there with the most expensive coat ever, I did manage to talk myself out of it though, I was being sensible, it was stunning though!
Another item from Wear it Again Sam, I love these teatimers, so comfy & versatile, get be dressed up or down, love em, I have lots of these both vintage and self made with vintage fabric, though I do particularly like the print on this.
Next up, I do like sparkly, a LOT!
I know this doesn't look like much, but you cannot beat a lurex dress once it's on, it moves with you, it sparkles with the light, I LOVE lurex, I would have a wardrobe full of lurex dresses! The link to this one is here if you're interested.
I love love love linen dresses with embellishments, I don't know why but it's one of my things. I have 3 really nice ones - which sadly do fit at the moment - but I love this one too. People don't seem to wear them much but I think they're beautiful, I prefer them with rhinestones - did I mention I like sparkly but this is pretty cute too! You can find this here on Etsy.
Last but not least, I do like a good a good colourful print. I think a lot of what is missing in more modern clothing is colour! This is a great example of a damn good print! You can find it here if you're interested.
There's a lot more that I like, I love rhinestones, the more sparkle the better as far as I'm concerned. I love halter necks in taffeta with rhinestones of course.
What I'm not into are floral prints, I'm just not a floral print type yet I would say lot of people are and go ga ga over a floral, I don't do pink or purple really, I'm not someone who like a lot of frills or frou frou, I'd be interested to know what floats your boat, I like that we're all different so if you like a pink, floral frou frou dress I'd love to know!!
