Oh for the Love of…Dress Clips!

Good day lovelies! Just as the title suggests, this post is about my love for vintage dress clips. I love that I can add a set of clips to a favourite dress and easily alter the look of the ensemble.

Oh, for the Love of…1950s Shoes!

Good afternoon lovelies! One of my favourite things about Spring/Summer is the need (or want) to purchase new shoes.

Circle skirts are exactly as the name suggests: skirts that form a circle (when … Continue reading
