My favourite pins of December. You can see my boards at http://www.pinterest.com/jennyvintage/pins/
Last week I went down to my favourite vintage shop, Ollie Vee’s in Leighton Buzzard, to model some of her lovely new tartan dresses. They’re from the fantastic Seamstress of Bloomsbury, which specialises in dresses made from 1940s patterns, and the fabrics are gorgeous.
This green one was my favourite! So cute with a pair of pale pink gloves.
The Ollie Vee’s girls – Helen (left) and Billie. We should start a ukelele band.
I’d been eyeing up this 60s-style tartan Olivia dress from Mod Dolly for a little while when a very handy 25% off everything at Mod Dolly on Monday made it too tempting to resist.
And how sweet is everything else in their collection?
A couple of weekends ago my lovely friend Claire came up to visit for a day of photography. But then it rained loads, we got our cameras wet and we just about squeezed a few shots in. Thanks Claire for taking these!
I wore a vintage coat I bought a while ago from the great Rose-tinted Vintage in Bedford, which sadly shut down this year. I love the green buttons and the label, which says The Right Time – the first thing I noticed when I saw it hanging on the rails.
My birdcage umbrella was a present and is Lulu Guinness.
