Prom, and other Decadance

My prom is a year away, but I am already planning my dress. I despise the tacky satin dimanted numbers of yester-year, and have henceforth vowed to have a classier, edgier prom dress, however self-obsessed that may sound. I am unsure of whether to go down the classic, timeless route (and risk looking frumpy) or down the edgier route (and risk looking like a Courtney Love wannabe.)
On anyone else, this dress wouldn't work. Including me. Damn.
Ah! Another classic from Deschanel! Not quite vintage material though, methinks.

Ah, Chloe. You do The Mini so well. The Mini for prom - yay or nay? I like it...

...and I do like Mischa's dress here. Perhaps a flapper look, oui? (Please ignore Paris Hilton here, oh Lord, Paris Hilton is on my blog.)

I thought I'd include a little bit of sartorial legend at the end here. If only one could look as elegant as Ms Hepburn, in her black turtlenecks and 50s capri trousers. Sigh.

Love, Peace and Chic,

Happiness is...

...getting lost in an English village.

I had to climb a tree to get this one here (unfortunately, the first photo isn't mine!) - the sun was just about to set and I was scrambling up a tree with my headphones on, waving my phone around and looking like an idiot. Good times!
Love, Peace and English Sunsets,

The Blank Page

I have decided that, having neglected my blog so awfully, I shall delete all posts and start again. It feels like the first page of a new journal - you sort of don't want to write on it, you want to keep it open to all possibilities. However, since I have lost my journal somewhere amongst my bombshell of a floordrobe, and probably won't find it until my birthday when I shall most probably get a new one, this shall serve for now. Hopefully I will be more vigilant with my blog this time around, and I hope to provide more vintage nourishment and inspiration!

First off, I have some serious car lust for a '69 Bug, specifically of the powder blue variety...

OK, so it's not perfect, but hey, it's got character! Also, it's pre-1971 so no car tax - definitely a plus. It's going on the wishlist!

I am also having trouble hunting down the ultimate tweed blazer - I love the Jack Wills one (OK, so it's Jack Wills, don't judge me!) but there are some gorgeous ones on Rok-it as well... What a shop, I don't live in London but I love their website, it's like clothing porn. More on vintage shops later - something may be in the pipeline there!

Love, Peace and Powder-Blue Bugs (:
