Charity Shop Finds - Simple Fixes

Sometimes it's a simple as changing/replacing the buttons. I got this gorgeous vintage Hardy Amies wool jacket in Shelter in Stockbridge for a ridiculous bargain of £8. Two buttons were missing from the jacket and I looked for ages for something with a bit of interest. I came across these gorgeous buttons on lotsofbuttons.com which were absolutely perfect:

I love the heritage style of the buttons, they go really well with the tweed but from a distance don't distract from the overall blazer. I got some other gorgeous buttons from lotsofbuttons that will hopefully make their way onto things soon. Massive recommendation for that website, it took about 5 days for them to arrive and they were being shipped from the US!

Inspiration: Twin Peaks

I've just finished watching the first series of Twin Peaks, how good is old TV?? I love Sherilyn Fenn's character Audrey, she's exactly the type of femme fatale lacking from current telly. Her outfits are particularly fab - close fit sweaters and plaid skirts with a perfectly permed bob - so 50s for the early 90s.

Tulle Time

I love when tulle isn't a powdery or icy colour - the material is already so feminine, it's great to see it in some stronger colours.
