Bring me sunshine & flowers...

Hello sweet sunshines!! I hope the week has started wonderfully for you all!?! Today, I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic US based vintage shop called Love That Lingers, Owned by the stunning Dawn (who I became friends with, thanks to Jenny) she takes love and care to select the most amazing vintage pieces and not just any piece of vintage, but those that evoke that special feeling one gets when they venture upon a vintage treasure, a feeling that only those that know the magic of vintage can feel, the story and the memories held inside that get passed on to each new owner. Lots of vintage shops just fling together anything that's 'vintage' without a care, but with just a quick glance, you will instantly know this is not the case here. Time and love has gone into her shop & that's what I adore the most - the time given! I also love that prices vary, so that everyone can afford to treat themselves & that she ships world wide with no problem too. 
Dawn let me pick out an item from her treasures & I instantly went for this because of it's bright and happy yellow colour, it made me smile!! It's a romper dress & the word 'romper' makes me laugh ;-) But, I just adore it so much, it came beautifully wrapped and quick too - even though we're on different sides of the world. Fantastic vintage condition, absolutely no faults at all! Below, you can see me wearing what I picked, believe it or not, it's actually super cold outside even with the sunshine and I was slowly turning into ice. But, with these happy colours and the bit of sunshine that did come out helped me get through the coldness. I was so pleased with this dress, that I've already purchased another treasure from her shop - a vintage hat, that you will no doubt see me wearing in the Spring, it's the most beautiful hat ever and I'm so excited! I hope you enjoy the pictures & do stop by Dawn's shop for some vintage beauties - these are a few of my favourites (I could pick many to be honest): 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

Have a wonderful day my darlings,

Loves & loves

Red visions of Lace dreams....

Hello my darlings!! I'm back, sorry to have been away for the whole week, but I needed rest as my neck was quite bad and I couldn't do a lot, other than rest & once I did that, I set to getting a lot of work done. But, I will be around to visit your blogs today!
May I present to you my exquisite red lace dress that I was the lucky doll to win from my friend Jenny's Instagram Give-away, this stunning red lace dress was made for me by London designer Alexandra King. Taking inspiration from the 30's, 40's, and 50's, Alexandra creates lush visions of beauty guaranteed to have you looking like the goddess you are! With every dress and accessory a one of a kind design, made to your very desire, you'll be sure to feel simply amazing!
My dress arrived beautifully packaged and I was so excited, I tried it on straight away & it fits so perfectly. Once you have a dress that has been made to your measurements, you can clearly understand why everyone had their clothes made to measure in the olden days. I can't get over how wonderful it is, I adore lace, so having a whole dress of it is a dream!
The quality is impeccable and I can clearly tell Alexandra loves what she does, because it is felt it in every stitch. My dress hangs so wonderfully amongst my other array of vintage dresses, so much so that to the un-trained eye, one might even take it for a proper vintage dress itself & that's what I love the most, having a dress made by someone who loves vintage dresses as much as I do!! You can also purchase actual vintage delights from Alexandra as well as having a dress made for you, I can't recommend it enough, if you have a special event coming up, treating yourself to one of her designs is a must, this is the kind of dress you keep forever - just adore it!! I hope you enjoy the pictures & check out Alexandra's website too, I have too many favourites on there, like these - 1, 2 & 3 - so perfect :) You can say hello to Alexandra here & here too!! Have a great day dolls, I hope it's bliss,

Loves & Loves to your heart
