Lady in Waiting......







Hi Sweet-peas.....

Oh it's so cold.......Winter is definitely here.

This soft mauve wool 50's dress has been in waiting for years......I have put her on before and the colour just never seem to work. Well this time I was going to find a way of wearing it......inspired by the chocolate coloured gloves the lovely Leisa from "Vintage bird girl" sent me.

I am happy to say "Miss Mauve" finally had her day in the COLD.



Love V


PS:  I have been very strong this weekend and have sorted out my coat collection......
and will be selling some at the "Vintage Roundup Market"!
 have a wee peek at a few of them on Facebook.

  1. Ooooh what I wouldn't give to have a lovely rummage through your coat collection, Miss V... even though I don't have room for my OWN coat collection!

    You are absolutely beautiful in that lovely dress and I love the pretty brooch too!

    Stay warm. Love! Sarah xxx

  2. Those colours are gorgeous and I will try and stay away from your market stall as I really don't need another coat, but I am only human!

  4. It's cold here too (finally! cranked the heater last night). I'm glad Mauve has had her day - she's pretty (the girl whoose wearing her is not too shabby either btw) and deserves her day in the 'sun'. I love your scarf, I need to start wearing them more often, I've got some lovely ones stashed away.

  5. p.s. has Warren sold that very nice 70's men's Seiko I spied on facebook? If not, can you tell me more about it please - I might like to buy it for Anth...

  6. What a wonderful combination. The mauve & brown work so well together. I love the frock worn with the waistcoat & scarf. And that coat looks so nice & cozy. I'd be patting myself silly in that. I'm so glad the wee gloves have found the right home. Love L. Xx

  9. You're looking so good in mauve and brown, Miss Mauve. Like your crocheted flower. Selfmade??? And these darlings beret, bag and vest give it a special style. Well done, Miss Mauve aka Vanessa aka squirrel.
    Here in Germany it should be summer but it's so cold and it's raining for almost a week. So we have lots of flooding all over Bavaria. My friend had to leave her house cause the water came in. Probably she lost almost everything. So having winter would be better for us than this awful so called summer.

  13. So THAT'S the way to wear that kind of dusty shade of heather - with warm chocolatey browns, it looks perfect! Cosy and snuggle and furry and beautiful - that's you, Miss V! .
    Don't go tempting me with your coats now, I have more than enough, and I couldn't afford the postage! xxxx

  16. This is a yummy color combo soft and so sweet! I think you look extra beautiful in these pictures. I think houses need to be built with extra large dress and coat closets, I mean come on, what's a girl to do.
