Goodbye 2013

This year has well and truly flown by. I always enjoy seeing other bloggers end of year posts so thought I would do one of my own this year. 

January



In January I braved the snowy weather and attended a pattern cutting course at the Fashion and Textile museum. Whilst I was there I also got the chance to see the Hartnell to Amies exhibition.

Good Ol' Freda





Good O'l Freda is a documentary about Freda Kelly, the Beatles secretary and friend. It's one of the few documentaries with full support of the living Beatles and it's full of original footage of the band, as well as great footage of life in the 60s (I loved seeing all the clothes!). It was recently on More4 in the UK and more information about the documentary can be found here.

Definitely one to watch!

Merry Christmas lovelies! I hope Santa leaves you all lots of lovely presents under the tree tonight.

Style Muse: Barbara Hulanicki

I first read Barbara's autobiography, From A to Biba, around 7 years ago at a time when I was just starting to wear vintage. I worked in Mayfair at the time and would spend my lunchtimes scouring the vintage shops in Kingly Court (there was a great one called Twinkled that had amazing 60s homewares - sadly it's no longer there).

A Brief History Of The Paper Dress

During the 1960s styles were constantly changing and there were many brief fashion fads and trends. One such trend was that of the paper dress.
