Baby it's cold outside!

I love my elaborate hair dos and I love my berets - but funnily enough I don't like berets on elaborate hair dos. Well at least not on my head. Whenever I try to put my berets further back behind my ears it just doesn't look right on me - to me. And my ears get cold!

So during the very cold days I am very happy to ditch the hair styling and just plonk a beret on my head. The school-run is also much more on time that way :-)


Moustache-pin on my beloved grey beret - I made it. Watch this space - soon to be on sale!

For the New Year I made the superficial resolution not to buy so many polka dotted garments anymore - I own so many! But this LOVELY dress I bought just after Christmas - didn't count then!


Digging brown accessories at the moment - I am all in love with this black polka dotted very comfortable dress.


I am also very much in love with the beehive currently! And yes same dress again!




Practice makes perfect - I still need a little while to get ready when sporting a beehive but I get faster every time. I crocheted myself some padding and yes there's a giant moustache in my hair. I told you - watch this space!


When I was around 17 I was totally into the late 60s - very short black and white dresses, big round dangly earrings, bouffant hair, the make-up and big big knee high boots - but these days it's the early 60s that make my heart beat faster. 
Watching my current favourite series Pan Am certainly inspired me!

You look great! Pan Am is a feast for the eyes, isn't it?

Oooooh the beehive REALLY suits your face! I can't do them without them either falling flat or without my rat being really obvious. Fancy doing a tutorial?

Oh, and a lady can never have too many polka dots ;)

The beehive is adorable! Love it!

If you like Pan Am, you MUST see, the 1960's movie, "Come Fly With Me." Also, don't forget Doris Day and Sandra Dee had some wonderful early 60's movies for vintage inspriation! :)
