Out With the New, In With the Old!

My beloved early 1920's
 fur jacket!
So Cosy. 

This is the back of the 
jumpsuit, it is
 beautifully made!
I have got it altered
 it by tapering the 
trouser legs. 

This jumpsuit is amazing,
 I picked it up in a vintage
 shop, Circa, 
one of my favourites 
in Glasgow. 

I love this long dress
 with the cape attached!

1950's Velveteen Hat

This Cameo ring was a 21st Birthday present,
it is really beautifully made and is very wearable! 

This portrait reads "Baden Powell"
who I believe was the founder of the scout movement!

This double sided pendant,(bought for me by my cousin),
is set in rose gold and comes from 1899.
Under this portrait it reads "Roberts" any ideas who he is?
or is it the same person? let me know! 

It has been such a miserable, wet day here and I had my first 9 o'clock start in along time at uni and it was certainly a shock to the system. But I had the afternoon to get cosy, get some uni work done and blog! 
My wardrobe consists of both new, pre-owned and vintage clothing, and I feel I have neglected my vintage gems and wearing new goodies I received over the festive season! So here are a few clothes and accessories (some more antique than vintage) as I fancy dressing up today, I hope you enjoy!

Olivia Lovin'

Today I wore this Olivia Rubin skirt. It is so comfy and best of all it is black with a leopard print brocade (my favourite), I teamed with a loose H&M drape t- shirt, black tights, a chunky necklace and wedges, perfect outfit for shopping and a yummy lunch at Wagamamas!
Olivia Rubin is a young British designer, with quirky, but practical garments, she is definitely one to look out for! If you are from Aberdeen you can purchase Olivia Rubin from It's Darling, 275 Holburn Street,  or if not, It's Darling is now selling online at:! Happy Shopping!
