Funny face

Funny face has to be my all time favourite film...(along with Breakfast at tiffany’s). So after a long week I decided to stay in and have a relaxing evening in with the film. It never disappoints. The glitz and the glam, the feminism and the pure elegance of Hepburn, it is a beautiful era. Don’t you just wish times were still like that?

Although times are not exactly like they were back then, I did create a photo shoot last year that was hugely inspired by Audrey Hepburn! See the picture below. Also after a visit to Stardust Years (an amazing vintage ship in Winchester) I came across some gorgeous gloves on display that transported me back to another time!

Enjoy the images,

A blooming marvellous day

What wonderful weather we are having here down south! This weekend it was goodbye to the winter coat and hello to the pastel blazer. I am a girl who just craves the sun, the instant it came out I was overly happy. Doesn’t everything just seem so much better when it is sunny? I forgot about my up and coming presentation and deadlines, instead I made the trip to Winchester. Here I visited local emporium of all things feminine and vintage: Stardust Years.

We discovered this wonderful little treasure when starting our PR project, and I must say it is stunning. We headed down on Saturday as it was international women’s day and Karen (shop owner) was running a lovely little event... and bucks fizz was involved!  If anyone is in Winchester they must visit! Their website is  They Providing Ladies’ Vintage Fashion specialising in original clothing, accessories, shoes, jewellery and gifts from the 1890s to the 1990s, there is something for everyone.  And to top it all off, you will have a fab shopping experience, greeted by the wonderful and friendly owner Karen.  

Along with this I had a wander around the market. Bright bold flowers, vintage stalls and smells of fresh fruit and veg. It was absolute bliss. I must say, I do love Winchester!

Hope you all had a fab weekend J

Dash of darling

Now, River Island always seems to provide wonderful evening dresses. I personally love a vintage inspired look.  You can imagine how much I fell in love when I saw this light blue jacquard dress for £60. However, although it is affordable...I am living on a student budget! This dress could cover two weeks budget. One day maybe?

Paired with a pair of nude, stylish heels and a wonderful daisy ring... What a ‘dash of darling’! Hepburn eat your heart out.

The dress however is extremely similar to those shown in the Chanel Paris Fashion Week show (2014) with super tiny waists and swing tops. So really it is a bargain compared to Chanel prices...right? If you have not looked at the Chanel show you really must! 

Hope you are all well, Gemma xxx
