Well, I'm a new reader, but I loved (and appreciated!) the Bump-Its post of a while back. Speaking of which, you tried 'em out yet?

I really enjoyed the Orry-Kelly post. I had never heard of him before, either, though I certainly recognize his designs from the movies you listed.

Vintage Finds of the Week: Crinolines

Any vintage lovin' gal needs her crionlines! I was happy to find a post on them and affordable options too! :-)

Happy Anniversary!

Tiffany said...

This is my first time on your blog and to be honest, after browsing the first page, I'm having a hard time choosing my favorite.

I love the vintage swim wear post and the latest post about 30's predictions for fashion. And the parasols. And that Alvara painting.
And cigarette holders.

I came here lusting for a giveaway, but now I can't NOT follow your blog.

Ace said...

I'm a fan of your Midweek Inspiration posts. Particularly (more recently) the "Mercura Cigarette Holders" post and the "In The Line Of Fashion" post.

discogirl said...

I love this post:

The video is just hilarious, and some trends are eerily accurate... that mesh dress looks just like the Alexander Wang!!! Plus all the shoulder pads - so Gareth Pugh. Loving it! said...

The 1930s fashion predictions has been my faourite so far. I can't believe how spot on they were about some things. Happy Anniversary!

DG said...

I love Pin Up Cosmetics! I just did a post about vintage-inspired makeup, and included them, of course! :) It was actually your blog post about them, that introduced me to the brand. I've only been a subscriber for a couple of weeks ago, but followed a link to the older post.

Happy Anniversary, P.S.! Love your blog.

Unknown said...

Since I have naturally curly (aka frizzy) hair I am always envious of anyone who can pull off vintage styles. *swoon*

My favorite post was this one about "The Women"
It made me go out and watch the film which I absolutely loved. So thank you very much!:)

Darla: Retro Ways said...

The most eye catching post for me would be the vintage parasol post! My favorite favorite post is the recent post you did on the sun suit and cover up you are making. I love to see what you are making and the process! Much love!

Congratulations you have a wonderful collection of things I want to have and read about on your blog. My favourite one so far has to be the fashion show from the women. Reminds me of another great fashion scene in how to marry a millionaire. An outfit named looky looky looky cant go wrong! Johanna_bengtsson@Yahoo .com, (International I'm afraid...)

Curvy Kitty said...

well, it was going to be Esther Williams but my new favourite post, as a cyclist and vintage queen, my new fave is bike riding in the rain - just lovely.
