Pure and Unadulterated....

...outfit posts!!

The top image totally influenced by Nurse Jenny Lee' outfit worn to a jazz club in the last episode of Call the Midwife. I curled my hair up into a faux bob and added a plastic dog brooch to match the pooch sat on the chair next to me!

"For pity sake Jenny stop pulling your sweater down, people will think you've had some sort of accident"

"Trixie I never go out for an evening in slacks!"

  I know at some point this programme would have been referenced to on any self respected Vintage Lifestyle/Fashion blog, but how can we help it? Mid century fans can get their fashion fix, from Jenny in her cardigan & full skirt combinations or Trixies black femme fatale ensembles. All from the comfort of a Sunday night sat in pincurls.   

Polka dot 'slacks': Affleck's Palace, Manchester.
Camel Turtleneck: American Apparel.
Black chiffon scarf: BooBoo Kitty Couture.

The second outfit is inspired by the birth of my new colour obsession. And I mean obsession. I've replaced my whole kit bag with pink tint bowls, brushes, hairdryers, combs, clips, gowns and even my Lucille's Locks mobile has been transformed with bubblegum pink vinyl graphics, but that is another blogpost.
But any item of clothing that matches my pink flashes makes me squeal inside and are instantly purchased.

Pink fluffy jumper: H&M
Grey Fan skirt: Bettie Page clothing
Shoes: Keds

Love as always, Lucille xx


  1. You are gorgeous! And crazy talented! I have a pink obsession myself, mixed with stripes and polka dots. What's wrong with that? ;) Toss in a hint of mint and I'm set!
