Print is Good For You



Don't be scared....prints are good for you....they can be big or small but they always challenge hum drum....and if you are brave you should let them win....


Just throwing this in 'cause it's just so pretty...navy pvc handbag with a slip on slip off covering for an elegant metal clip....in the days when stuff was at a premium this was a day and night bag in one....

The 70s for Shy People


I love paisley....and it has never limited itself to one decade but heavy print often thrown together is what the 60s and 70s make me think of...but for those wanting subtle statements busy prints don't always have to shout.....


Ok this is probably 1980s judging by the boxy hip skiming action in the cut of this jacket but the brocade served my purposes this week....ohhh Vogue March 2017 tells me that 1980s boxy hip skimming action is what its all about....just saying....Size 34 R195


Detail


Satin paisley print in joyful red and pink is perfect for souping any seriousness up.... R50


Just to get the size.....i really don't like measuring things....its a handicap i know..... 


Pleated and falling below the calf the waist is elasticated and the fabric is a chiffonish poly mix so it keeps its structure as you swish....Size 34 R165

Come One Come All...Green Camp is Calling You!


Bread and Milk


This week is about basics....the assumption is often that vintage is always a standout piece of promotion when often its the detail of the more background pieces...the ones that people will walk past and then turn to look at again to work out what is going on....and background is where it all starts....


Very cute very fine cotton shirt with a collar that is quietly carved into a double effect....i think i am doing a very bad job of explaining this....ok so cute, small neutral print, anchors and snow drops...Sized 32-34 R145 


Collar Detail


Detail


Fine kinda nylon typa fabric with a high collar at the back and a Miss Moneypenny bow....simple....yet quietly sexy....Size 34 R145


Detail


Quietly feminie with a small button at the cuff in a polymix in a strange quazi japanese print although i have probably got this completely wrong and it is a veiled cowboy shirt....i will leave it to you...Size 34 R145
