During my latest visit to Sheffield, where I met the amazing blogger gals, we visited Loulou’s Vintage Market and purchased three dresses. As a few people demanded to see them and I do as I am told, here they are.
Dress – Vintage 60’s, Tights – Kohls (cost me a fortune: 80 cents of a dollar), Feminist brooch – Hannah Zakari, Shoes – Irregular Choice (via Ebay)
Dress: Vintage, Cardigan – Zara, Tights – forget the name, got them from TK Maxx, Shoes – Irregular Choice (via Ebay)
Dress – Vintage, Tights – don’t remember anymore, Jacket – French Navy surplus (from some shop in Camden back in the 90’s, when my love affair with sailor collars and all things nautical started), Shoes – Pink Bitches by Irregular Choice (via Ebay)
And of course, I have to ask: which one is your favourite?
Happiness can be a lot of things. the unexpected kindness of a stranger, good news from a friend… but those cannot be photographed. So for this post, I have chosen to show you nice things that have made me happy lately.
One of the cutest makeup sets I’ve ever owned, by Pupa.
A pair of hot pink satin killer heels from Reiss. Hurry! You can still get them here, on sale!
Mr Tibbs’ smile.
A lovely 60’s poppy dress and a Welsh tapestry cape I got from a blog sale.

How about you? What has made you happy lately?
Recently I found a vintage shop in Nottingham that I had never been to. I didn’t take that many photos inside, just a couple of snaps with my phone but here is a taster:
I bought a couple of things there – a pair of 50’s spectacles and this cute 60’s ivory and orange dress, with peculiar square buttons in perfect shape, for £12. Not the cheapest thing ever but fairly priced for a vintage shop. Some shops seem to price old dresses like they’re made of gold or something… The fabric feels a bit rough to the touch, I suspect it might have been made for decoration purposes initially but I think it looks great as a dress too. I’m certainly not the first nor will be the last to wear clothes made out of curtains, right Vix?
Details: Dress – Vintage, Coat – Zara (swap with Lili), Bag – Ahcahcum Muchacha , Cardigan – H&M, via Ebay, Tights – Ebay, Shoes – Pull and Bear (sale), Necklace – second hand, from my trip to Sheffield, Sunnies – Moschino, via TK Maxx, Blue Baby Brooch – from the Vintage Market in Brussels.
I’m adding this to Patty’s Visible Monday as it’s that time of the week!
