It's October.....time for pink to take over the world!!

As buildings around the world turn pink this October, I begin to scan the high street and supermarkets for pink ribbon items to buy in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. It is a cause I have paid attention to because of the mere fact that I am female. When 50,000 females in the UK, which equals to one lady every 10 minutes, and even more around the world, are still diagnosed with breast cancer every year, it is not a condition that should be overlooked or brushed aside. (To find out more about Breast Cancer Awareness: http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/news/media-centre/breast-cancer-awareness-month-press-pack) So lets have a look at what fabulous offerings that can be bought in support of Breast Cancer Awareness this year!

So if you are doing your Christmas shopping early this year, or need to give a gift for a birthday girl, please spare a thought for Breast Cancer Awareness and consider giving a gift that can save lives.

Alternatively, donate £2 to wear something Pink on the 28th October 2011! (www.wearitpink.co.uk) Please give what you can and lets make October a fabulously pink month!

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 do.....it'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 darlings...as 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 myself...trust 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…
