Hello hello! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas; mine was spent mainly drinking too many cosmopolitans and eating too many strawberry Quality Street chocolates, tea cakes and Cadbury’s chocolate fingers! I was lucky enough to get lots of lovely things, and I will put up some outfit posts soon of the vintage pieces that I got.
Today I went into central London with my boyfriend and his mum to do a spot of shopping in Harrods, which was totally packed because of the sale. Then we went to Leon in Spitalfields for some lunch – if you live in London you should definitely try this place, they use organic/ fair trade/ seasonal ingredients in all their dishes, which are delicious! This is what I wore:
Obviously I had a coat on over the top, because it is freeezing here! My bedroom is an absolute tip at the moment, so I put myself in front of a lovely floral background instead :-)
Since I haven’t got any photos yet of the clothes I got for Christmas, I thought I would show you some pages out of some annuals that I picked up at the Angels sale (that I wasn’t allowed until Christmas!)
This first lot is from an annual of 1950’s Elle magazines:
These two are from Elle magazine 1954-55:
This lot is from Elle 1956:
And finally, this last lot is from a book titled ‘Les Modes’ from 1901, so I assume it is some sort of fashion publication that was out in 1901. Unfortunately I can’t read any of it because it is in French, but the pictures beautiful:
