Deco Dolls doing the Gatsby...part one of my Birthday celebrations at the Candlelight Club!

Happy Bank Holiday my lovely darlings! As this shall be a photo intensive post, I shall try my best not to waffle on too much....but the one absolute thing I must say is that I highly recommend the 'Candlelight Club'! For those in the know, or might have heard whiffs of whispers on one of London's most popular vintage nights, the Candlelight Club would be a candle lit event to look forward to every fortnight. A different 1920s theme and a different secret location every time....with the purchase of the ticket you will be guaranteed a name on the guest list and sent an email with the secret location a few days before the event. And getting there was every bit as exciting as we imagined....not even including the fact that we were running late and I quick marched down a busy London street in a floor length velvet dress, black suede shoes as well as oversized grey faux fur coat with the backdrop of pouring rain, brollies and grey pavement puddles. Arriving in the rain on a dis…

Feature: 'Hey Doll' Vintage Magazine....takes a roar back to the 1920s Far East!

Apologies my darlings...with the busy week of my birthday celebrations, this post is far overdue! Remember just a few posts back I mentioned that there was something very exciting I couldn't tell you yet? Well....it was an article that I wrote for the fabulous 'Hey Doll!' Vintage Magazine...that was just published recently!! I am so excited I could barely hold my breath, as I have been a diligent reader since the very first issue, and this published feature really does mean a lot to me. As some of you darlings may already know, I have a love of the 1920s and have been writing about it for some time....so when I heard that the next issue would be devoted to the 1920s and all things Gatsby I knew I had to give it a go! As what I wanted to write about offered a glimpse into a topic that is not often thought about or rarely mentioned in other 1920s focused media sources, I really didn't think it would get published! Also I submitted the article quite near the deadline and …

London Hot-Spots: Swinging by for Vintage treasures on Brick Lane.....

Hello my darlings...how was your Bank Holiday weekend? It was a busy three day weekend...from my ballet lesson to vintage shopping with the girlies in Brick Lane...as preparation for my 1920s birthday party at the Candlelight Club this Saturday! Followed by a full on week that kept me away from writing a little while, I will most definitely look forward to the weekend...not to mention being quite excited as I think all my girls will be looking absolutely gorgeous decked out in their 1920s Gatsby looks at my party....I almost can't wait! Rest assured...I shall definitely be snapping away with my camera like a mad woman and will hopefully have lots of wonderful photos to share! (Please do pardon the excess of exclamation marks...as you darlings can probably tell how excited I am about Saturday!) Also I have just returned from my very first Balboa dance lesson with one of my girlies Yerka, and I must say the vintage six step is much trickier than it looks! So there will be lots of pr…
