BOATER and FLORAL skirt...

After stormy weather, sun is back again... yeah!



Why not going out with our '59 Caddy


for a good sunday flea market?


That was such a nice day...


sunny but not too hot...


perfect weather to wear vintage!!!


Feel great to be able to wear full skirt with a New Look jacket!


This vintage one is part of a 50's suit...


but as I don't wear often my suits because they look too strict,


I decided it would be funnier to match this jacket with a colorful skirt


and with this Luxulite brooch! (Won on Instagram thanks to Coconette-oz just for my birthday!)


Sylvain was also really pleased...


he could go back to his favorites,


VINTAGE TIES of course!!!


He likes to be elegant.


This 30's fitted jacket was calling for a boater!


You must have noticed the master piece of my outfit!


This GORGEOUS vintage skirt!!!!


And what if I tell you that it is not even vintage????


I rarely wear repro for clothes...


I'm always dissapointed with the cut, the fabric, the price...


I tried some repro like Pin Up Girl clothing


but it was too large or too small and mainly TOO short!


I fell in love with that fabric on Etsy HERE...


And with such reasonable price, I choose to contact Marjorie the owner of the shop "Hearts and Found" to see if she can create the skirt of my dream.


I wanted a custom waist size, sweep and lenght...


but I also wanted a box pleated waist
that I think fit better curvy girls.


and here is the result, just perfect! 


She also made THIS one custom made with a special cut
that you will see in another post for sure!


You can also contact her for your dream skirt,
you will be pleased for sure!


I paired it with these Miss L Fire that I really love...
comfy and glamour!


and another Belle Lurette brooch... (yes, I'm a brooch addict...)


We were really lucky on that day...


we were invited to take those pictures in a castle yard...


the 2 owners of this special place welcomed us...


it was hard to picture Sylvain's outfit after their arrival!


We really LOVE dogs... in fact every kind of animals...


So here is the lord of this castle...


What a dapper guy with his friendly old lady!


I really love those pictures....


WE definitively NEED A DOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Are you pleased with repro?
Would you be able to tell that this skirt was not vintage?

Et voilà, les folies de l'été continue... nous voici au printemps! Loin de se plaindre, c'est le temps parfait pour porter du vintage!
L'occasion de ressortir les vestes, les cravates (Sylvain était aux anges) et les jupes tout en volume... et quelle jupe!!!
Pourriez-vous croire qu'elle n'est même pas vintage, mais juste faite sur mesure pour moi en respectant chacune de mes demande? En fait, j'ai très souvent été très déçue par la repro, tailles bizarres, prix fantaisistes, tissu décevant et surtout TROP COURT!!! Si vous voulez créer tout comme moi la jupe de vos rêves, contactez Marjorie de Hearts and Found!
Nous avons été gentillement invités dans la cour d'un château pour prendre ces photos... nous avons été chaleureusement par les 2 propriétaires à 4 pâtes de la propriété...

LIVE from the MIDWEST....

After the heat wave, here is the cold and windy weather... what a odd summer we have!!!


So it was time to experience some new things in our outfits!


Without consulting each other (like most of the time)...


we looked like directly arrived from the American Midwest!!!


I don't wear often pants/jeans....


First my husband prefers when I wear skirts or dresses,


but mainly because it's so hard to find ones that fit my figure.


I have 13'' between my waist measure and my hips one,
that's why it's so difficult.


I found these ones recently from Freddies of Pinewood.



I have a few of their jeans but it's not a perfect fit...


Even if these fit great on the front,
it's not perfect in the back waist...


But the cut is great...


So a lot of brown for these western outfits!


Here, it's the hay harvest time...



so we had the idea to use a field as photo shooting place!


And pictures turned to be SO good!!!


It was really hard to select the best ones...


that's why it's a busy post!


Look at this AMAZING sky!


The straw rollers were quite usefull and gave a nice background!


Were like 2 farmers in our field...


I also wore something else I'm not use to...


T-shirt... this one is from Atomic swag.


My vintage scarf matched perfectly the colors of this Tee!


More brown leather for my cowgirl look...


this belt is a present from my hubby... with gold metal horses!


I usually wear watches with metal bracelet but here a leather bracelet


same for Sylvain!


Brown is his favorite color...


don't know why but I use to hate brown...


thinking it's not a joyful color....


but I'm trying now to wear more, 


a few touches can look rally great.


Like here, brownish jewels...



Brooch from Belle Lurette and
necklace from Catalin Kustom Creations.


I have also another brown touch with that purse.


40's telephone cord purses are becoming harder to find,
mainly in good condition,


this one was NOS with comb, mirror and coins purse inside!


We made some nice pictures...


but also a lot of silly ones...


I always laught a lot with Sylvain...


but the craziest picture award go to...


SUPER SYLVAIN, my hero!!!



What a fun time we spent on that field among cows!


Do you like brown?
Do you often wear pants/jeans, girls? Any tips for curvy gals?

Cet été va vraiment nous rendre chèvre.... 40° et du jour au lendemain 14° avec un vent terrible... on ne sait plus comment s'habiller! Alors pourquoi ne pas tester de nouvelles choses?
Je ne porte pas souvent de jeans ou de pantalons... bien sûr mon mari me préfère les gambettes à l'air, mais c'est surtout que trouver un jeans avec une coupe sympa et qui convient à mes formes relève du parcours du combattant! J'ai trouvé celui-ci chez Freddies, mais comme avec tous leurs modèles, il y a toujours un petit quelque chose qui cloche... ici la taille dans le dos (donc heureusement ça ne se voit pas trop)... A quand un modèle qui convient enfin aux femmes qui ont des formes???
C'est le temps des moissons par chez nous et ces champs nous ont inspirés pour ce shooting très Farwest! Quel moment de franche rigolade avec Super Sylvain!!!!
- A bientôt pour de nouvelles aventures vintage!!! -
