Bright And Cheery Dresses In An Anti-Depressant House

March 19th, 2014

In the US, one of the pads we rented was so hippie and bohemian, we just had to do a little photo shoot in it!

The place was bright and cosy, and packed with loads of personality. The walls were drenched in a riot of colours, and the interior included rejuvenated vintage furniture and plenty of patterned upholstery. Scattered all over the place were the owner’s own artwork and photographs. Healthy shiny plants reigned indoors and out.

It was eclectic and vibrant – perfect for us both. We felt the colour therapy rejuvenated us at the end of each work day.

Here’s Kyra modelling some of the vintage dresses we’d purchased on our trip, and which are on their way to you (THIS WEEK)! They’re awesome pieces, equally deserving of the environment they were photographed in!

Enjoy!

1970s baby doll candy striped maxi dress. That’s the kitchen!

1980s polka dot dress with pink piping. That’s our front door!

Close up of a 1940s lace dress.

Rare and beautiful 1940s blue maxi dress with lace details. That’s our backyard!

1950s brown and cream polka dotted dress. Classic and timeless. That’s the beaded curtain leading to the front room!

Surprising low back on an otherwise conservative 1950s dress.

Embroidered 1960s structured bag – so rich in detail!

Green 1970s Hawaiian print dress. That’s the hallway!

1970s black rattan sling with gold trim, perfect for taking day into night!

Blue Hawaiian print dress with a pink hibiscus motif. You can tell we love our Hawaiian prints!

There was a lemon tree in our neighbours’ garden which extended over to our backyard. We helped ourselves to their lemons (!!)

1950s cocktail dress – looks great with heels or sneakers!

1970s jacket and pant suit, next to a 1970s style beaded curtain!

Structured vintage bags with plenty of character, waiting patiently for their new owners!

Vintage overnight slouchy carrier.

Kyra wears a full suit with top, skirt and a bandana that can be worn on the head or around the waist. Or a bag, if you wish. It’s rare to find a full set of anything these days.

1970s full suit with the cutest colours!

1960s black rattan handbag with an unusual white beaded handle, sharing space with the owner’s artworks.

About ” Something In The Air”

February 19th, 2014

There once was a Captain

It wasn’t a He

Her name was Lara

So fabulous, was she!

 

With bucket loads of attitude

She takes to the highest altitudes

“I say, this is your Captain speaking,

“Fasten your seatbelts, stop squealing!”

 

Up in the air, it’s no-nonsense in epaulettes

Back on land, curvy dresses flatter her silhouette

You’d scarce recognise her

She causes quite a stir!

 

A beauty to behold in dramatic frocks

In somber shades of jet, ebony and soot,

Sweet, sexy, severe and stylish

Her black dresses are timeless, and classy to boot!

About ” Come Full Circle”

October 2nd, 2013

Round and round the world we go

To and fro, we ebb and flow

No beginning, yet no end

Just like the seasons’ hottest trends

Playful, youthful, cute and fun

Classic, timeless, they’re second to none

Big and bold, or small and sweet

Polka dots and circles are hard to beat

So thus the theme for this month’s shoot

With Wei fen as model, pretty and spunky to boot

We used an app, it worked like magic

we’re sure you heard of Hipstamatic

They all came together one rainy day

It was windy, wet and awfully grey

But the sun must have seen us, it must have been wowed

As it soon came back out, and chased away the clouds
