pin it!

vintage by

i am a big fan of pins and brooches and have been for a very long time. i’m not sure what it is about them, but something about them just makes me feel better, i think part of it is that they can inject so much personality into an outfit. when i go into charity shops, other shops, look on etsy or generally online i find it especially hard to resist buying them.

aqua by aqua

fashion by

i recently came across a fashion brand called aqua by aqua and some of their items immediately caught my attention, so i just had to share. i love their bold, graphic and minimal style with a colourful but restricted colour palette. i’m a huge fan of patterns and print in fashion so these two pieces below definitely appeal to me in that way. i also like that everything in their collection is nice and fitting. i really like clothes that are well tailored and compliment a figure, as well as the sleek hair and make-up.

fashionable beehive girls, typewriters and collars.

miscellaneous by

today i got this fantastic illustration print from dom of dom & ink that he did for an article on amelias magazine about the orla kiely presentation at london fashion week A/W 2013.

i was already a huge orla kiely fan, and like probably 9324975 (estimated (random) amount) i fell head over heels for her show. so much to love. two things that particularly drew me beside the fashion was the colour palates she used, and typewriters. oh typewriters. they are things of beauty. also of note: vintage signage, lamps, piles of letters, and teacups. if you’re a fan of collars, floral prints and beehives you’re in for a treat!
