April wishes you a happy April!

Yes I know....I have neglected my blog waaay too long. I've been a busy little bee but hopefully things has calmed down now and I can get back to writing.
With a little help from the juicy and wonderful April Flores I wish you all a very Happy Easter!

Satin slips

I love these slips from Lindex. Like caramells of mesh and satin.

Wild, wild youth

It's not easiest task to find rockabilly clothing in larger sizes in Europe, but the german webshop Rockabilly Rules is a great exception. I was thrilled to find some really nice things there, many of them in a classic 50's juvenile deliquency, hot rod style.

Everything from their own brand Rumble59 is all made in sizes small to 3X and jeans up to 36/36".
Well THAT is something we're not spoiled with in Europe! These clothes makes me wanna hang out at a diner, race fast cars and break curfew....

Vintage stories

If you like the clean-cut vintage lifestyle, Betty Draper in "Mad Men" and light pastels, Kappahl's spring collection "Vintage Stories" is looking very promising! The keywords is 1950s, cupcakes, the female form and great details.
It's dresses, cardigans, childrens clothes, accessories and lots more. They even got aprons and cupcake forms, great idea!
"The feeling of the clothing is fresh, like they have been washed and then dried on a string in the sun".

As usual I'm quite disapointed with the sizes, nothing is larger than a size 46 (aprox. US 16) but I know the shape and the material is often quite forgiving so hopefully they will fit a wider range of body types.

See the whole collection here.

A reason to love someone

I love it when I come home from work with aching feet, all cold and tired and my man treats me with pancakes with syrup and butter. No one makes better pancakes than he.

So, what do you say Doc?

I wonder if there is a diagnosis for those who litterary can't stand living in a world as it looks today? If one gets headache and skin rash from the modern advertisement, fashion, values and beauty standards (just to name a few things that bothers me)?

If so, I thinkI have a serious dash of that condition....

Kustom Kar Kommandos

My household has just been blessed with a new box set of movies made by the legendary film maker Kenneth Anger.
If you like anything retro, underground movies, hot rods or just plain kitsch, you must have a look at this wounderful short film.
It's called "Kustom Kar Kommando" (1965).
If there is anything called hot rod porn, this would be it.

It's camp, it's beautiful and very, very stylish.

Moan for Joan....

I got a new fashion icon: the truly gorgeous and stunning Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks) from the tv-show "Mad Men". It takes place in New York in the early 1960's and I love how well they have captured everything from hair to clothes and interial design.
And for Joan....well, she's got it all: a killer figure, wit and amazing style. Just take a look at her!

And this is what I would look like if I was a part of the cast....( I wish!)

What I Will Try To Achieve In 2010

* Work as much as possible with things I like, such as writing

* Visit Rascal Kosher again

* Keep a higher maintenance, wear red lipstick as often as possible and spoil myself more

* Do everything I can to keep healthy and excersise at least a couple of times a week

* Don't let some days pass just by without having done at least a few things I really enjoy, such as read a book, watch a movie or write something

* Be helpful to others and always be very polite (this is something I already am, but I want to keep myself that way). I think everything you do to others comes back to you.

* Try to be as honest and straight to myself as possible, do the right thing

* Get out more, meet people and don't be too self-conscious
