18 Sep

How great are these Liberty of London Nikes? £70.


Seasalt Cornwall

6 Apr

Seasalt makes some of my favourite clothing around. Relaxed and sporty, yet always stylish and pretty – what I generally aspire to, while usually falling short and winding up slightly scruffy.

At the moment, I have my eye on this season’s jute bags. Their whimsical designs really appeal to me. Just perfect for going to the beach, doing a bit of shopping or just carrying around waiting to be noticed.

At three for a tenner, they’re completely affordable. Why not pick up a few?

This skirt has also grabbed my attention:

… mostly because of the ‘Mallows Mist’ print which I think is lovely and old-fashioned:

If you have a look around the Seasalt website, you might also come across their excellent guide to Cornwall’s gardens.

Good stuff.

Make-Your-Own Knickers

28 Mar

Thanks to the lovely people at Flo-Jo’s Boutique, you can now make your own beautiful fancy pants knickers!

The patterns are available in gorgeous prints like the cherry gingham one above, and also blue gingham, black gingham, gypsy rose and, my favourite, vintage rose:

The kits, which sell for £12.50, include a graded pattern to fit sizes 8-18, knicker material, gusset material, frilly elastic, ribbon and a label reading “Handmade by me.”

If, like me, you don’t have a sewing machine (yet), you can also buy beautiful ready-made knickers from Flo-Jo. This pair, upcycled from a gorgeous vintage silk scarf, would be my pick:

Vintage Swimsuits

13 Aug

Oh, if only this ooh-la-la gold lamé number were in my size.

The woman who owns Suffolk-based Beach Bygones sells amazing vintage swimwear, summer dresses, deck chairs and picnic baskets. I wish I could buy it all!
