1. Walk-In Vintage Closets. Well…not closets per se. Just one closet. Indie singer and interior designer Pearl Lowe’s vintage walk-in wardrobe. Did you spy the vintage cupboard full of gorgeous heels?

2. Shopping Instagram. Oh my, how I love my new blue & white vintage planters that I bought on Insta (these were from Nen & Co). If you’re feeling the need to relax and unwind, you could meditate or you could check out my blue & white moodboard…here.

3.  Tag, You’re IT! Got a vintage look that you’d love to share? Then, tag along. Hashtag your posts with #tagitvintage on Instagram or Facebook to share your vintage here, there and EVERYWHERE!!!

4. The Louder. The Better. On our radio show, Dead People’s Stuff, my co-host Miss Posh Poodle and I talked all things 50’s this week. And played this delicious version of Nick Cave’s The Mercy Seat by Johnny Cash. Turn it up loud…

5. ‘Loving’ Vogue US. Ahead of their new film Loving (set in the 50’s), actors Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton were photographed by Mario Testino for Vogue‘s November 2016 issue. This photo just reaffirms my love affair with vintage-style dresses, fabrics and flowers worn in the hair.

6. Perfect Duo. Photographer Jeroen van der Spek and stylist Cleo Scheulderman are my new fave dream team for vintage, industrial-style photos. They created this image for VT Wonen lighting in the Netherlands. Take a peek at some of their other collabs here. I know I’m in love…

7. 80’s Trends On-Trend. And nothing says it louder than cool-girl Cara throwing it back to the 80’s on the cover of ELLE US wearing a one-shoulder dress with a pink sequinned frill. And for my eagle-eyed readers, yes this is the Sept issue – which I just picked up because air-freight is too expensive. Damnit!

8.  Lace on Lace. Photographer Thanassis Krikis smashes out some of the best editorials, including this latest shoot for Marie Claire Greece. I love the layering of lace on lace by stylist Marilena Karagianni. I’m going to try and own this look sometime soonish (before summer hits and it’s too hot).

9. Dream House. I know I keep banging on about Tribeca warehouse lofts. But I’d love an outback old church too. What can I say? I’m a sucker for big spaces, in beautiful old buildings.

10. Just One Word. WALLPAPER! Yes please! On second thoughts, maybe it’s three words. Wallpaper. Chairs. Lamp. See you next week. X
