Shopping Vintage

You know that moment when you see a picture of someone wearing the most amazing dress – only it’s vintage so you know you’re never going to be able to find the exact same one?

I saw a picture last week on Immodesty Blaize’s instagram of her wearing a beautiful baby blue 70’s maxi number, and blue isn’t even a colour I usually wear unless it’s denim but the dress was sooo pretty.

Anyway, I popped in  to Beyond Retro’s Soho branch yesterday and found not the same dress but something very similar in peach!

It’s the simple things in life, like finding the perfect dress and because it’s vintage, knowing it’s highly unlikely you’ll bump in to anybody else wearing the same thing.




The Santangelos

I’ve just finished reading The Santangelos, Jackie Collins final book.

Was sad but fitting in that the death of character Gino Santangelo who featured in so many of her books would be in her final outing as an author.
I’ve read every single Jackie Collins book and this one didn’t disappoint, love, money, glamour and revenge, themes that have run through all of her books and definitely ran through this one in spades.
Jackie Collins books are perfect Summer reads while topping up your tan and sipping margaritas by the pool or on the beach.
Packed full of my favourite characters, including Lucky Santangelo, the fiery, no nonsense, business woman who is the original girl power this maybe wasn’t my favourite all time Jackie Collins but it wrapped things up nicely.
Who will I read now that there won’t be another Jackie Collins book?
