Four First Dates

February, the time when all of nature sings of love and.. other things.
There is a certain new hope in the air, the promise of a winter soon over and of longer, sunnier days. What's not to love about it?
We're looking forward to spring, to new beginnings, to young and fresh love, so to celebrate it all, we decided to put together four perfect first date outfits, to inspire you (and us)! 

We're opening with this red and blue number, with black accents. Don't be afraid to mix various shades of one colour, like we did here with blues. They will only serve to complement each other, and the rich, elegant shade of red of this dress


The key to pink is the amount. too much and the first thing people will think is either a popular online feline, or a giggling teenage girl. That's by no means to say that you shouldn't think pink! We added (almost) all pink accessories to this black and pink dress to create a striking and bold, yet alluring set. 



And if you wear your heart on your sleeve, and strut the world proud, why not do it in a red velvet dress? After all, the finest pralines come in a velvet box, and so should your luscious self! Don't be afraid to pair this dress with high heels as the swing of your hips will really make it come alive! 



If elegant, old world style is your preference, and a walk through rainy Parisian streets is your idea of the perfect first date, why not go with this sleek and very late 50's inspired poodle print dress? This dress calls for a somewhat lower heel and simple but striking accessories, such as a heart shaped purse to send the right message. 



What is your idea of a perfect first date? We'd love to hear it!

Capsule Pinup - 9 pieces for 9 outfits!

We're starting off the new year with something really special!
It doesn't matter if you're new to the rockabilly and pinup fashion and don't know where to start, if you're trying to build a wardrobe on a budget, or if you're trying to put together that perfect travel suitcase, we've got you covered. Our Capsule Pinup features 9 basic wardrobe staples and turns them into 9 outfits for every scenario you can imagine.
These are:
Ronnie Denim Capri Trousers
Joni Wiggle Skirt
Paula swing skirt
Hannah Striped Top
Dorelia Top
Cherry Bow Cardigan
Drive Me Crazy Cardigan
Meadow Swing Dress
Ditsy Rose Dress


To keep with the capsule idea, we only included one purse as an accessory, and three pairs of shoes- pumps, ballet flats, and a pair of baseball shoes.

1.
Is there anything better than the classic capris, striped top and a cherry cardigan for a casual day out? We don't think so!

2.
Glam it up with a sleek silhouette and an adorable cherry bow cardigan that matches your lipstick!

3.
So sweet, so comfy! This outfit is just as suitable for daytime as it is for a night of dancing!


4.
You can't go wrong with a diner style dress, especially not one that matches your cardigan and your purse!

5.
A floral summer dress can be made to fit a dozen occasions, and this outfit alone covers at least five!

6.
Something about this outfit just makes us want to watch Crybaby over and over again, how about you?

7.

Keep your skinny jeans and nude pumps, we're going for capris, mary janes and a vampy top!

8.

Cute and comfy, who says it's not possible? A drink out with your friends, a lunch in town, or a casual date, you can't go wrong with this!

9.


For this last set we played a little trick by converting the dress into a skirt. You can do it by tucking the bodice inside the skirt, zipping it up to your waist, and then using a safety pin to hold the zipper together and prevent any damage to it.

We'd love to hear your feedback on our capsule set, and as always, you can see it all in more detail on our Polyvore Page.

Festive Frocks

We're up to our noses in holiday prep here, and we're as giddy as schoolgirls about it!
OK, we're not all that keen on all the housecleaning we had to do (though it did mean reorganising our closet, and we're always up for that), but our pantry is stocked full of fragrant spices and enough chocolate to feed a small army, and we're doing the next thing we love best- planning our holiday outfits!

There are so many dinners and parties to attend, and all of them are a glorious excuse to dress and overdress, so we made (as we always do), several sets for our and your inspiration. 

Of course, we have to have a Vamp set, and it really has to include a lurex top and a wiggle skirt. It has just the right amount of sparkle to draw attention while still being very appropriate for any type of work party. Pair with red nail polish and some lacquered shoes and purse for a really vampy look. 


A more glamorous version has to involve a siren inspired dress, and glamour deserves some black lace and a red (faux) fur shrug. After all, 'tis the season! Keep the accessories matte for an extra sleek look, and just add a swish of red lipstick. 



Then again, there's the romantic outing. Perhaps a walk through the Christmas fair or a cosy dinner for two? Which ever, we've got you covered. A dress with floral details and a matching cardi, paired with a pair of comfy and pretty wedges for those evening strolls under Christmas lights. 



We saved the sweetest outfit for last. Cute and stylish, it just calls for a meal with your loved ones, be they friends or family. We love the combo of red and green, and the holiday season is the perfect time to wear it. 


Did you finish your holiday prep yet? Don't forget you can see all our sets over on Polyvore
