~LookS: When it becomes sunny enough for the first Maxi.....

I absolutely adore the Maxi dress to bits and look forward to wearing them every summer! I love the forgiving long length of the Maxi, the feeling of the long fabric rustling in the wind on a sunny day or brushing across the grass, and the sheer elegance that binds me to take every step in a slower motion and with greater appreciation of the world around me. So I thought I would put together a post dedicated to the beloved here is the first Maxi dress I have worn this season; when it became warm and sunny enough to feel Summery in London!

Maxi Dress and belt: Forever 21 (A birthday pressie from my sisters!)
Black Jacket: Dorothy Perkins (but from several seasons ago)
Shoes: Hush Puppies red wedged sandals
Handbag: Primark (a few seasons ago)

Let's hope that the rainy spells in London will soon that more Maxi dresses can be brought out in the sun!! Happy summer everyone!!

Until the next time,
May xx

  8. Thank you for all the lovely comments and kind compliments Ladies! It's really sweet of you all and each comment has made me smile! :)
    I'm really not that tall, so I try to make the Maxi dress work with wedges to add some height, and sometimes it is still sweeping the floor! But I just love the Maxi so I can't resist wearing it when the weather permits. My sister prefers the Hankerchief Maxi with an uneven hem as it is usually a little shorter in length.
    Have a great weekend!

How-To: Do 1930s to 1950s....a Vintage inspired twist to glitz-up your evening look!

With only three days to go before my vintage themed birthday's all getting a little exciting and I am still finalising my 1920s Great Gatsby inspired look in my head! So I thought it might be helpful to think about building other vintage looks too...just in case any of you lovely darlings are attending a vintage party or in need of any inspiration!

To me, the real glitz and glam began in the 1920s but evolved into a deeper feminine state towards the 1930s....which carried on through to the 1950s because of an addictive fascination with the glamorous silver screen. The 1930s was not a trouble free decade by any means, as the Great Depression and WW2 began broiling in the backdrop of society. But with all the unrest came an opportunity for many to sooth their sores in the world of cinema.....and so the age of the silver screen sirens began captivating the world! There were shifts in day wear becoming more practical as WW2 shook the world and fashion seemed to have halted f…

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 8 ~ Qipao on the silver screen.....

The film that actually made the Qipao (Cheongsam) a frenzied fashion trend in the West, with dress patterns suddenly appearing for the public to create their own version of the style, was actually the American production 'Love is a Many Splendored Thing' (1955) with lead actress Jennifer Jones ...but the British production 'World of Suzie Wong' (1960) is often more remembered with the greater display of tightly glamorous Cheongsam dresses in every scene, the scandalous nature of the character's profession and lead actress Nancy Kwan's Golden Globe nomination. Just in case you lovely darlings may be wondering...I am indeed devotedly fascinated by the Qipao, as many of you can probably tell already, and I also found it interesting how this beautiful garment is depicted in different films on the silver screen...which is why this is Part 8 of 'Qipao Love'. Though this is a long list of beautiful films featuring the Qipao, each is unique with its own percept…
