Rose Coloured Glasses

This is a collection of my favourite vintage/ultra feminine items. I thought it would be nice to use my creative brain and put together a little photo shoot. These are things I've collected over the years and have managed to not be thrown out (I'm quite vicious when it comes to clutter, most things get chucked within six months).



The sort of "holey" scarf gets me a lot of compliments and I like it for it's more modern vibe. The pink shawl is much more traditional, but the pink hues in it are really beautiful. 





The black and pink book was given to me by my mum for my birthday and it's called 'Audrey 100', a compilation of 100 of her sons favourite photographs of her. This also happens to be my inspiration for one of my earlier posts on Audrey Hepburn. The book above it is my go to for anything I want to know about 20th century fashion. After my trip to England and the Victoria and Albert Museum clothing collection I have been hooked on the history of fashion. This book is very well written an very insightful.




I've accumulated these three purses over the years and their some of my favourites. It's too bad, but I've never been able to find an outfit that goes with the green and pink purse, although I'd really like to be able to use it one day. I remember my uncle joking that the pink purse looked sort of like a fish, all scaly with the little pink plastic pieces. I think the pink purse is pretty interesting looking, although fish isn't immediately what comes to mind. I actually have a necklace and bracelet that match, now those are interesting looking.
