 Audrey Hepburn a film and fashion icon would have been 85 today (4th of May). Her quirky, chic style always inspires me when I choose to dress up. She is absolutely gorgeous 

My list to ‘being Audrey’: 

1. Find your style and own it

2. You can never own too many black dresses.

3. Own a sexy LBD

4. Dance, sing, laugh…be happy

5. Be passionate about what you choose to do in life

6. Have fabulous quotes:

 I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Have a fabulous day loves xxx

Modern-day take on gorgeous vintage pieces- originally posted on ohmytrendy.com

So thankful spring is officially here- Couldn’t possibly deal with anymore cold #sigh…

I have spent too many nights & days indoors. time to start packing away coats and lose some layers of clothing. 

I have been looking for swimwear inspiration for an upcoming trip and of course in true Nouveau Vintage style I turned to yesteryear for inspiration. 

These women from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s etc really knew how to sex it up without over sexualizing swimwear as is the case nowadays.

This weekend I have a shopping trip planned for a client and will definitely be looking out for some vintage inspired swim suits.

Here’s to Spring!

Working on the new collection…Just got in my patterns from voguepatterns.mccall.com I ordered them last week when they were on sale for Presidents day for $4.99 a pattern- what a bargain, normally these patterns sell for $17.99-$22 a pattern. Over the weekend I also went to Joann and stocked up on patterns and fabric- they had an even better deal for patterns ranging from $1.99-$3.99 with the 15% off coupon as well I wasn’t going to pass up that sale. Now its time to put in the work. I shall slink into the hole that is my sewing room and begin work.

A lot of work goes into pursuing dreams, but if you love it & believe in yourself, it won’t be hard work it’ll be fun work.

Have an awesome week  y’all

Very soon spring will be upon us and more brunch dates will suddenly be flooding our inboxes, happy hour drinks at garden bars and cocktail nights in cute dresses…

Now how to keep up with all the hard work you put in at the gym in winter? I came across this great article (below) from Elle.com. 

I personally have a strong wish to have sexy abs for bikini season, so eating healthy and drinking healthy are big on my list.

Happy reading & Cheers to Spring…

I have finally found a great space to work full-time from, within my minimal budget and with 90% of my must haves..#doing a little dance right now. It has taken a while but the time is here now. 

Keep pushing for what you believe in, speak on it, see it, know it is yours and it will be!
