A dose of vintage dressing and lunch........














Since the shops got squashed I have missed the dressing up for work each day.
Winter was my favorite time because my love of great vintage coats was used in simply the best way, wearing them!!!!!
As a wee treat we went into town for lunch at " Dose" (yummy) and then to the movies.
I wore this splendid 60's houndstooth wool cape, 40's scarf, 40's tangerine cotton gloves and 70's nylon black dress. It was nice to be in vintage treasures warm and snugly.
We went to see "Dark Shadow" it was very cool, I just loved the 70's dressing, oh and Johnny Depp was well the best kind of vampire.

  2. What a fabulous outfit! I love the cape. I have one that belonged to my Nana but I haven't been brave enough to wear it. How I long for winter to hit here....coats, scarves & tights are delightful. I had the most vivid dream about you & Mr W the other night....we were rummaging through vintage goodies & then jumping over barbed wire fences in fields. Very strange but nice! I hope that doesn't sound weird!!!! Hehe Xx

    I love Johnny Depp in Tim Burtons' charachters and it sounds great from your post!
    I like the winter mood of your photos, the lights are perfect!
    The outfit is breathtaking: that cape is a treasure, so the hat and the glimpse of red of your marvellous gloves and scarf!xxx

  10. I'm sitting here with the A/C on in 90+ temps really enjoying all the "Down Under Ladies" bundled up for winter! I won't be able to do that until October! The humidity here (southern part of the USA) is above 50% for the next 5 months! Tank top, shorts and sandals anyone?

  15. That cape is fabulous and so are the gloves. I love Warren's jacket too. Winter is my favourite as well, mostly because of the coats, hats and gloves.
