air hostess, i love the way you did dress.....

so....British Airways went on strike today, not good news for all the travellers amongst us, but good news for you lot vintage fans!!

it got me thinking about how incredible the lovely hostesses of the 60s looked dressed in uniform. If only it were the same today and maybe the staff would be as happy as these gals.....

so long sunnies.....

so long sunnies....these 30s style vintage 80s beauties were good to me this summer....until after an extravagant battle with some headphones in my great big mock crock 80s bag, they are no more.....

(however.....for a wide selection of vintage eyewear come visit Lola's Wardrobe This Weekend!!!*****)
these made me feel like the incredible Helena in this shot from sweeney todd....another excellent vintage sunglasses shot is this one from True Romance...

ode to fifi and nia...

so here are a couple of snap shots of some well dressed gals!

fifi here on her birthday in a fabulous gold crimpolene bolero found during our vintage escapades in Paris this summer, and the lovely nia + party quest in a choice jumpsuit with pussey bow neck detail.....

both outfits are hinting at current winter trend... so keep your eyes peeled gals for some individual shine and sparkle to perk up winter blues and some pussey bow necks to get you in the mood for unwrapping those xmas treats.....!
