cardboardcities colour love: white – etsy edition!

home decor, vintage, colour love by

the whole ‘etsy edition’ wasn’t a planned thing, when i was looking around for white items that i actually liked or loved, almost all of them were from etsy, so i thought why not have them all from etsy? you can see the previous colours here. i also didn’t realise until after i put all the images together, but all of the second lot are ceramic things. woohoo!

as i’m more of a colourful person, i generally don’t go for white items when i’m buying things for myself or the home. i like white walls, and a minimal look, but in my own home i’m always drawn to items that have colour or texture to them. saying that, i love all the items i’ve chosen and would happily have them in my home or on my person. i wouldn’t be doing this if i didn’t love or at least really, really like the items i’d chosen.

my very first outfit post

fashion by

i thought i’d try something new, and do an ‘outfit post’ every now and then. i love fashion and love to wear colourful, patterned clothes. i’ve worn clothes that are vintage or vintage/’retro’ styles for years (with a modern twist) now and i couldn’t imagine dressing any other way, really. it just feels right to me and the 40’s and 50’s are definitely my era when it comes to style. lots of patterns (not so much in the 40’s), feminine and fitted. i guess i do like a bit of 60’s stuff, more for the patterns and colours than the shapes though, as i’m not keen on wearing shift dresses and such. the shape is too loosely fitted for me, and as i’m short i much prefer to make the most of my size/shape.
