I’ve never much enjoyed travelling by rail. The reality of modern rail travel is too often a station that smells of pee, hauling heavy luggage across large expanses of concrete (perspiring like a chased pig), changed platforms at the last minute, replacement bus services and generally feeling dirty and unrested at my destination.
In the old movies it looks so much more elegant. I’d wear a hat probably – a kindly porter would load my luggage onto his trolley and take me to a clean bench where I could perch my dainty bottom until the rumbling locomotive arrived, complete with those windows that open to chest height so you can lean out and wave your handkerchief. Ahh… my life in old movies – then I’d be elegant.

I wanted to show you KoKoLoReS second new release for The Vintage Fair, open until the 26 June. Blanche is a modest and sweetly becoming retro ‘do’ and I’m showing you one of the blondes from HUD 01.
Also at The Vintage Fair are faves AviCandy with stockings inspired by each decade. I fell in love with the 1920s inspired hosiery which comes in various subtle and pastelly shades. All the appliers a girl could wish for are included in the pack, and I’d suggest you go get some.
Addams have a new mainstore release! The Alegra Buttoned T-Shirt is an awesome fit and it comes in striped or plain textures and colours.
Finally, Cynful have their Denim Skirt on sale at The Dressing Room. You can pick one up in one of the selected colours for a very reasonable price. Bargain ahoy.
Here’s some pictures, including the ‘well lit, no shit’ shot – click to see them larger.
And finally, the dancing video so you can see the rigging while I’m jigging. I triumphed in choosing a soundtrack totally at odds with the rest of the blog 😀
