    Beautiful collar and ring!

    I think it's safe to say some ladies here like vintage fur and some do not. Feel free to post, I don't think there are any rules!

    Miss Sofia and Marzena - thank you both! I have a small collection of chrome items like cocktail shakers and sugar/creamer sets and am always tempted to buy more than one of the same thing - it takes a lot of resolve not to!

    It's been a while since I dropped by - gorgeous finds lately, as usual, ladies!
    A few days ago I got offered a great job, so I treated myself to these sterling silver screw-back earrings from etsy today. With a big move to a new city coming up I could only afford a small treat, but nonetheless I thought these were cute!

    Marzena - thank you - that's a lovely compliment!

    LinaSofia - I had a little peek at your blog too and must say you both looked fabulous on your Big Day and so happy! Your dress was so simple and elegant (and I loved your hydrangea bouquet - I had hydrangeas for my wedding also in each flower display - such a romantic (and underrated!) flower. Congrats also on your new job - well done!

    Your new earrings are so sweet - I also have to add how much I ADORE your cream bag you have on your blog - it is fabulous!

    Miss G & Black Dahlia - thank you both so much :) we had a lovely day. Miss G, that 60s bag was an ebay find and I think it only cost me about £10! One of those fab flukes that happen all too rarely these days! :) xx

    I few weeks ago I ordered the 1940's wartime suit from Heydey! It arrived today & I have to say I'm delighted. It fits like it was made for me (except for the sleeves, they're a little long, but that's easily fixed). Photos to come!

    So your heart is now coming with a key - and with a copy - that should make matters more ...ump...secure?
    Lovely conceept and how nice for you to be able to give yourself a reward.
    Would it be indiscreet to ask what agreat job is? (feel free to disregard!)

    Marzena - indeed! Well I only offer the key to my husband of course :). I'm a romantic so the earrings appealed to me.
    the job is a research post at a university (I've just finished my PhD), it's a great job just because it's the kind of job I wanted :).

    Ah, I did a shop today and got some nice things! I got a pair of croc embossed loafers, a white blouse, a blue blouse, a robe, a white slip, and two sweaters. I have my eye on a dress on Etsy, too, that is actual 40's vintage, not just "inspired" like I wear most of the time, but I having a hard time convincing myself to spring for it. I also have a couple of hats I should post pictures of. I will try to get pictures up next week. Everything is in the wash right now.

    After 2 weeks of calling round Clark's head office and a variety of stores, I finally got hold of a pair of these! I'm so happy! They're really comfy :)

    I really can't fault Clarks, they've gone above and beyond the call of duty to get me a pair.
