UNDERBELLY RAZOR






So I never really got into the underbelly series. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure they are all great series, but they just never really appealed.... Until they did a series set in the roaring 20's. I love 1950's and 1940's fashion, but there is just something about the 1920's that makes me fall in love with it over and over. The gorgeous flowing dresses with no waist lines, the amazing cloche hats, the cute little purses and the long layers of beaded necklaces. I have watched this series more times that I dare to count, and I have developed a little bit of a girl crush on Tilly Devine (played by Chelsie Preston Crayford). I love all the strong purple shades and cloche hats they have designed for Tilly, her fierce pommy accent and her wide collection of silk and satin 20's dresses. (They also have some gorgeous little doggies on the show).Under belly Razor, I want to raid your wardrobe.

FOXY LADY








Meet Lady Jane the fox. She was won at a vintage auction by my beloved who spotted her and knew her and I would be the best of friends. She and I have been in-separable since. She just loves snuggling up with me and                     keeping me super warm.
On a more serious note..... wearing fur is one of those things I have always been so unsure about. As an animal lover with 8 pets whom I adore completely, I cannot support a fur industry that enables animal cruelty to continue in the name of fashion. Vintage fur though, is so different. If people only ever wore vintage fur, instead of new fur, the demand for new fur would eventually cease to exist, and the modern fur industry would dissolve. So, I will wear vintage fur and only vintage fur, and love these items of the past that would otherwise be chucked to the back of someones attic unloved .
