Vain and Vapid

Forget vintage clothes for a moment - I just bought this:

The Scrooged shirtdress from Vain and Vapid's etsy store. Loving the shirtdresses right now (which you might pick up in the coming weeks as our shirtdress collection is bursting at the seams...we're instigating a slooow deployment of said garments so we don't overload the store with them). I was planning on getting a little greedy and waiting until her next shop update so I could get two things and save on postage, but an update came and went and it seems this lady Julie's new store is already too popular for my mouse finger to get a click in edgewise.

There is one Scrooged dress left right now if anyone's interested. I'm excited!

Oh and she also has a blog.

Tonight at the store...

Coming up in the store tonight at 7.30pm:

Last week's auctions are still going for a couple more days. This week we have some really cute dresses. Our favourite is this navy and white polka dot mini dress:

It pains us to let go of this one!

And thanks to a non-paying bidder, these burgundy wedge boots are back up for sale:

Honourable mention goes to this one of a kind rare 1950s swing coat. Can't you just imagine Doris Day rocking this back in the day?

We're really starting to get into the swing of having an online store, and we love it. The highs and the lows.

Poor Laura Ashley

My very first blog entry.


And it's inspired by poor Laura Ashley.

Ever since I was a child I can't help but think of her whenever I see floral. I remember my aunt telling me how poor Laura Ashley died, on her birthday, after falling down the stairs, in her daughter's house. So sad. But at least she got to fill the world with rustic and romantic florals and frills and English and Welsh flowers before her untimely topple.

Apparently Laura's husband once remarked that "Laura had the whole world dressed as milk maids". Which leads me to this little number. A slinky vintage Laura Ashley knit tube dress.

Where is the floral? Where are the frills? Where is the rustic romance? Where are the cows?

You know what? I don't even care. It's 100% pure merino wool, a fantastic colour and sits so nicely around the bottom region.

Check out more pictures here

Great work Laura Ashley.
