Mad for the 60s with 'Hey Doll' Vintage Magazine (Issue 3)...and the Winner of the GIVEAWAY is...

BouBou picking the lucky winner ...
Apologies for keeping you lovely darlings waiting a little while longer for this week's post...it has been a rather unpredictable week! The good news is I have finally put all the participating names into my cloche hat and got BouBou to pick one! Yes...my clever little cat BouBou popped his head into the hat and pulled out a piece of paper, which I quickly took before he could run away with it. And the lucky winner of the GIVEAWAY is....(drum-roll)...Deborah from Hellcat Vintage! Congratulations my darling from both myself and the lovely Belinda Hay at the Painted Lady!

The other little bit of good news is...that my photograph has been featured in the 'Hey Doll!' vintage magazine's reader section! If you love vintage then it is likely that you might have heard of this magazine already...but if not, then I can recommend it as a lovely digital collaboration between two bloggers who love vintage...Bunny from Bunny's Victory and Brittany from Va-Voom Vintage! Not only is this gem of a read absolutely loaded with interesting vintage how-to(s), pretty photographs and true vintage lifestyle experiences...it is actually free and can be read as long as you have internet access. So it truly is a labour of love by real women who want to share a passion with others. Having been a dedicated reader of the vintage magazine from the very first issue...I remember falling in love with the cover photograph of Audrey Hepburn, I was quite excited to find that Issue 3 would be all about the 1960s and heavily inspired by the sexy television series 'Mad Men'. As some of you darlings might know...I happen to have a little fondness of the beehive and can be seen with my eyeliner flick where make-up is involved. So I decided to send in one of my more decent looking beehive photograph...which you darlings might remember from afternoon tea with Judita. [To catch up on my afternoon tea in a beehive, please click here: walkinginmay.com/london-hot-spots-afternoon-tea] It wasn't anything spectacular and I was certain that the magazine would have an influx of brilliant photographs that would probably move me to the bottom of the pile...but when I flipped towards the end of the magazine to see that very photograph, my face lit up and I started jumping around the room with a very puzzled BouBou staring at me! Without further ado, I present to you darlings the fabulous 60s inspired Issue 3 of 'Hey Doll!' Vintage Magazine...and please don't forget to take a peek at page 59 where you might find a familiar face!

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…
