Summer Memento

 Sending some warm summer, holiday vibes your way :) No worries, pics are from July, while now I am enjoying autumn in the office, like most of you...

In terms of what I was wearing on that happy day in Lisbon, this look illustrates how I just adore to combine textures, colors and  styles: the delicate, nude boudoir chic dress,made of light chiffon, my most adored green wool sweater (it belonged to my mom in her college years), a vintage khaki belt, the chunky, brown wedge sandals, the sporty bag, which I take to the beach or to the office, an all-rounder :) and the huuuuge rose pendant, which is really at the very thin border between chic and totally kitsch.
You tell me if this combinations works!

Grass Green, Turquoise & Metallic Silver

Hey Sweeties,

enjoying some lovely days at the seaside and quickly sharing a simple & comfy summer night outfit idea with you.
My Style Tip: Make sure you own a simple, light, viscose or cotton dress in WHITE for this summer. Use bold statement necklaces in powerful colors to accesorize it and go for flashy shoes, either in style or color. Flat sandals in a metallic silver look could be an idea. If it get's a bit chillier at night, dare to go for another strong, electric color in addition to the necklace to make the whole outfit pop. Keep the make up light, let your skin breath :)

Summer comes in Stripes

For me stripes and Capris just scream out summer and always make me think: sea, sun & sandy beaches! Regardless of trends, I guess I'll always wear striped shirts, they're a permanent resident in my overcrowded wardrobe. You can combine stripes with simple jeans for an unsophisticated look or go for powerful colors like electric blue, coral, green to make it pop....or, what I love most: is wearing stripes with various prints. They go great with flowers, geometrical shapes or whatever fun print you might (the print on my new fave skirt - to be shared soon).
Enjoy your striped summer, honeys!

T-Shirt: Bershka
Sweater: Vero Moda
Pants: Primark (5 Eurooooooos!!!)
Belt: Mango
Clutch: Primark

Holiday Colors

My Sweeties, today due to me being in my Friday=always happy=almost holiday mood, I am sharing the very short story of my new favorite summer dress with you, along with some lovely pics from a perfect getaway to Sicily. Of course, a story with a happy end :)

It started out with this amazing fabric I found in one of the second hand shops I browse thru regularly...Price: 3Ron (0.65 Euro) for about 2.5 m...YES, a steal!
 And then it continued with this Burda pattern,

that I slightly modified and that my most talented mom turned into THIS... You Like?

Any exciting holiday plans to be shared? Do tell!

50s Inspired

Oooooooh SWEET 50s! I am repeating myself, I know, but I for one am crazy about the 50s fashion style and I could loose myself in watching pictures, magazines or movies from those golden days.

I've created this 50s inspired look on a sunny holiday, daydreaming about the wonderful fashion decade when women were as feminine and sexy as it got, without being too revealing or vulgare. Sexyness had style and class in the 50s, some of it we've sadly lost along with fashion evolution ...

The dress: cost me 1(one!!!) USD :) and I got it new(!), the silk scarf is vintage and a special gift from my aunt, shoes: Il Passo.

Hugs & Kisses,
Vintage Meelusha

Dress like a doll, feel like a doll

I totally adore this dress: the vintage inspiration cut, my favorite color, the unique handmade collar and my most adored brocart, all combined into the perfect dress!!!...and it was a record shopping spree for me: 2 minutes after Isabelle (Lachatterie) posted the shots on Facebook, I was chatting with her and reserving this little wonder for myself, just a few minutes before she got another request for the unique piece. Meant to be mine, that's what it was!


Dress: Lachatterie; Coat: Diana Antohi (got it at Ab Fab last year); Bag: Vintage (special gift from my aunt), Shoes: CheapMonday; Belt: Vintage
