Pink thoughts and a pink dress.....then add Kitts and some ideas in the working!

Since thinking about what to wear for Brest Cancer Awareness Day, my mind has been filled with pinks of all sorts! So last week when we went to Kitts (Chelsea, London) for a bit, I decided to start something pink and wore a baby pink dress! Kitts is by no means a big club and it was slow when we arrived early at 11pm, but the music was commercially fun and we ended up staying much longer than we intended. The decor always reminds me of a crossbreed between a dark rustic gallery and someone's funky living room, whilst the staff were friendly and looked as though they loved going to work every day. Even though there were quite a few accidents creating wet splodges on the already cramped dance floor, we still managed to evade the many almighty attacking elbows around us and danced through the night!


Anyway the conclusion was that it gave me a chance to pink audit my wardrobe and it sparked a few new ideas. So on the 28th October 2011, I shall be wearing a brightly and deeply PINK long maxi number with tights as well as a cardigan.....dashing around one of London's airports and then later in Edinburgh Airport.....probably looking very out of place but all in the name of the Breast Cancer Awareness 'Wear It Pink' day! So there will probably be more photos in the following sequence......me being very pink at an airport, my dear friend Sophia's wedding in Edinburgh, and just possibly...the makings of a vintage short film!
So please feel free to share.....what will you be wearing on the 28th October 2011?

Until the next time,
May xx

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…
