Be My Baby



Photographs by Montclare

 A few film snaps from the beginning of 2012, featuring my beautiful friend Michelle of Ocean's Between and my compulsion to hold up all my dresses and ask everyones opinion before I step out the door... I seem to have a nice collection of 1960s brocade dresses at the moment which is making me pretty darn happy.

Life has been pretty hectic round my part of the world. With lots of big changes happening in the near future (more on that in a few weeks) I am desperately trying to get on top of dress orders and squeeze in a bit of time for my lovely lady friends who I can't go too long without!

I have found the key to staying chipper after weeks of late night sewing is blasting 1950s juke box favourites and 1960s soul numbers, here are my very favourites.





Oh by the way, I also wanted to mention that although I don't blog all that often (something I hope to change) I do tumble like a crazy lady. Please feel free to follow along and leave a link to your own tumblr if you have one!

  4. I love your pics - so moody and etheral. And your frocks, of course.

    And I am this close (hold your thumb and forefinger reeeally close together) to having my hair cut just like yours!

    1. Thank you Sarah:) Ohhhh yay! I absolutely love having a bob, best move i've made. I actually started out with a paige boy cut about 5 years ago and it evolved into the cut I have now.. Long live the bob!!
