Style crush - Kate Moss

I thought id do a post on style icon Kate Moss, i admire her style and how well she has done since she was discovered in 1988.

She is also an inspiration to me as a designer as i love all her Kate Moss for Topshop uniquity and am very sad this is her last collection in 2010. (hopefully just the last one for topshop!!)




Kate Moss has 'bang' heavy hair




In 2008, it was reported that a £1.5m ($2.8m) 100% gold statue had been made of supermodel Kate Moss as part of a British Museum exhibition. Entitled Siren, the 50 kg (110 lb) hollow statue was made by Marc Quinn, who described Moss as "the ideal beauty of the moment". The statue is said to be the largest gold statue to be created since the era of Ancient Egypt. It was nicknamed the 'CROTCH' lol


A few more images to oogle over.................

Look of the Day - Boho winter style

You can keep your bohemian style this winter with this lovely printed Authentic Vintage Maxi Dress for only £20.00







I adore this maxi dress, the colour, the length and it also as a corset style tie on the lower back of the dress which is so different. (ill take a photo of that tomorow!)

It would look great with a waist belt and brown boots. I could even customise it to the length you prefer and even make a skirt out of the remains =)

Only availavle from Treasure Junki

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone , W. H. Auden

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,

Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,

Silence the pianos and with muffled drum

Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.



Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead

Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,

Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,

Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.



He was my North, my South, my East and West,

My working week and my Sunday rest,

My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;

I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.



The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;

Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;

Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.

For nothing now can ever come to any good.

Vintage Buttons



Ive been a very busy lady these last few weeks getting things ready for moving into a shop. It.'s actually my friends shop and she had a spare area downstairs and offered me the opportunity to fill it. Which i have!! Its very exciting and im over the moon about it all. 

I started working on these little collections of buttons as i thought they were really querky and they are really old buttons so different from the cheap tack we buy nowadays.

So i plead to all those crafty pople out there to check them out and give me some feedback.

Thanks for looking.

Miss Dior

Elite Christian Dior Couture Splendor




Fashion designer Christian Dior began his fashion career by selling sketches of hats to Parisians in 1935.

Dior established his own house in 1946.
Presented his first collection in Paris (February 12, 1947)

For his first collection, Dior created the New Look for which his fashion house became renowned.

Its feminine elegance, with delicate shoulders, tight waist and full skirt, was inspired by the spirit of Parisian women.

The opulence of his designs contrasted with the grim post-war reality of Europe, and helped re-establish Paris as the joyful fashion capital it had once been.

In the 11 years before his death, Dior dictated European style. Each of his collections had a theme – the classic suit, and the ballerina skirt that ruled the early 1950’s.

When he died suddenly in Italy in 1957, the world lost one of the most elite designers.

Now we can all have at least one Dior in our closet.

I as lucky enough to be given a very old suit case by a very old lady which was full of her crafty/sewing possessions which she no longer had any use for.

Amongst this was bags of old, vintage and wonderful buttons which i stored in a jar as a display as i thought it looked amazing.

Now ive decided to share these wonderful findings and am in the process of putting together small selections of coordinated buttons for sale.

Here is my first same which is a one off piece and is available for just £4.00

Laura McCafferty Art

I recently went on an Applique course with Spinsters Emporium at the Hopkinsons Gallery in Nottingham and learnt how to sew applique on to different items in different ways and was inspired by the various ways it can be done.

We was shown an artist who uses Applique in a different way to make large pieces of art which i loved and now i only have to think about that artist to become motivated in making something more original.

Laura McCafferty layers up her pieces of fabric to produce a reinvention of a photograph - AMAZING
The typical English image captures the lifestyle of these 2 elderly people.



I havent actually started to make anything yet but the ideas are always there and im thinking with Xmas coming up it might be a starting point for me i just need spare time to get going!!!

Vintage Wedding

I currently have 2 vintage wedding dresses for sale one is 80s era and the other 70s, i was going to keep the 70s style dress for myself as i loved it so much, but im not getting married anytime soon so thought it was a shame to keep it stored away.

I will be displaying the dresses at Best Brides in Barnsley but they are for sale and an appointment could be arranged to try them on.

I will do my best to get photos on here as soon as i possibly can x

Give me some feedback on what you think of vintage wedding dresses, what is your favourite era? are they popular little gems xx
