Summer Lovin’


Loving The vyshyvanka trend but not the designer prices? Take a peek on Etsy for some authentic, investment worthy alternatives like these from BoutiqueUA.  Whilst not High Street prices, They’re much less than the thousands some labels are demanding…

Of course the 2-3 weeks it takes to ship from the Ukraine does mean it’ll probably be winter again here or at least gales, hail and torrential rain…but somethings are worth waiting for.

I hate packing with a passion..but at least in summer the clothes are the easy bit…all I take are vintage cotton dresses..


As a change this year – yep, I always wear the same ones..I’ve added an edge of neon pink pom poms..


I have all sorts from all different countries..this is one of my mexican numbers..and yes, if didn’t escape the pom poms either..they’re breeding and rather addictive..


My white broiderie anglais kaftan..excellent for wafting in with a trilby and a cocktail..


This is an African number – comes with a full length wrap skirt in the same material.  A girl has to have a bit of bling..


My cheesecloth peasant dress with embroidered butterflies..guaranteed never to meet someone wearing the same..



Another Mexican..they’re rather fab and very easy to wear..


The only two exceptions to the rule are my vintage jumpsuits..dress up, dress down they can take me to any occasion..



This one was originally 80’s purple, but it got a dose of brown dye and now it’s a wonderful burnt aubergine colour.  It’s silk so does crease, but it’s worth it with a pair of gold sandals..


But I still hate packing..
