.... I'm kind-of ... BACK.

I haven't blogged in a very, very long time. A year and 5 months if we're counting! I could go into the reasons why but I wouldn't want to bore anyone who still bothers to read this!

A lot has happened in the past year, the biggest of which is that I'm ENGAGED! Luke proposed on the beach at sunset in Skiathos and it was possibly the most romantic and perfect moment of my life.

Que vintage-inspired wedding to come... watch this space!

In style news, I'm lusting after this River Island jacket:

Vintage on Ebay!

I realised today (while trawling Ebay for bargains!) that it's been a good long while since I did a Vintage on Ebay post. So, after several hours of trawling through pages and pages of, lets face it, mostly rubbish, here are a few Vintage and Vintage-inspired gems I happened across:

Dorothy Perkins Colour Crush....

I'm trying to save money and ignore the lure of online shopping... It's proving difficult as there are SO many things I'd like to buy in time for summer. In particular, Dorothy Perkins have really pulled out the stops when it comes to beautiful colourful clothing.... everyone knows bright summery colours are going to be huge this season, and DP have certainly jumped on the rainbow bandwagon...

P is for Pleated Palazzo Pants....

I would like to thank Asos for finally making a beautiful pair of Palazzo Pants for Petites! Us shorter ladies can finally digg that 70s vibe!

A Sneak Peek.....

A sneak peek at tomorrow's outfit post :-)

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Mine was surprisingly good, considering I've been an LaNoire widow for most of it! ;-)
Untill tomorrow,

P.s. Who's watching Orphan on Channel 4? Scary stuff...

A Little Piece of Heaven

SO, we've come to the end of my Italy posts :-(. I have to admit, I've been stretching them out as long as I can (I think I'm still in denial about having to come home!) and I would recommend Sorrento to all of you. It was honestly one of the best weeks of my life.
On the very last day, we decided to stay in Sorrento and savour the atmosphere. We came across this BEAUTIFUL court yard which was the perfect sun trap. Round the edges you can just see some of the University's artwork displayed on the walls. 

Apparently you can hold small wedding ceremonies right there under the willow tree - how pretty would that be?

Later on, we went back to one of our favourite bars - which has it's own little secret garden hidden around the back. Perfect for an afternoon Nastro Azzuro!

Vintage Print Dress - Rare
Retro Sunglasses - Asos
Striped Cardigan - Primark
Belt - Dorothy Perkins.
I still adore that vintage print dress - I bought it last summer before our trip to Olu Deniz. It's very silky and lightweight - feels great on the skin and perfect for hot weather!

I miss the sunshine! We seem to have a peak of it today (sort of) so I may head out in a bit to take some outfit post shots :-)

Happy weekend everyone!

Dee V - Diana Vicker's Very Vintage Range.

I've been a fan of Diana Vicker's style for a while now: she's come full circle from her no-shoes ditzy free spirit style X Factor days to seriously chic pop starlet front-row style icon.
Diana is obviously very into her fashion, as well as her vintage, so it's not such a big surprise that she's the latest in a long line of stars to launch their own fashion line for an existing high street band. We've had Kate Moss for Topshop, Fearne Cotton for Very and Lily Allen for New Look. Now online retailer have taken on little miss Vickers as their latest celebrity designer. How much designing these stars actually do is up for debate (I suspect "collaborator" is a little more accurate), but never the less Dee Vee, with it's quirky charm and vintage feel, is certainly worth a peek.

Diana's range is available now! Click here to see more.
