As you all know I love all things vintage.  My cupboards are coming down with vintage tea sets and vintage cake stands all of which I try and use on a regular basis.  There’s nothing like sipping tea from a beautiful vintage china tea set.

My jewellery box is bursting at the seams with stunning vintage brooches and necklaces that I wear most days although I do clear out now and again.  If you head to my Etsy store you will find some of my unique vintage finds there if you fancy a wee look!

My Favourite Vintage inspired Christmas Outfits


I don’t know about you but with all that buying of gifts for family and friends, when it comes to December I start to look at what I can treat myself to!

Vintage inspired outfits are a great way of buying clothing without having to spend time going through charity shops.  There are many online stores who offer fun, funky and feminine clothes which are vintage inspired but with a modern twist.

Below you will find some of my favourites:


Red Tartan Pencil Skirt from Vivien of Holloway.  It is high waisted – just like the 1950s so very flattering.




I am totally in love with this Moscow print swing dress from Lindy Bop.  It is made from a special matte finish fabric and is in the 1950s style flare skirt and not to mention it can be machine washed – such a bonus!




How cute is this Christmas jumper?  A vintage inspired 1950s jumper in a beautiful blue and white from CollectIf.  Made from cotton and machine washable!








Another tartan outfit, this time a classic dress from Voodoo Vixen in green and black.  It has a beautiful large detachable fur collar with ¾ length sleeves and back leg split.  Stunning for Christmas and the winter season.


Happy Shopping!
