We are back after a really cold week...

with temperatures between -10°C and -2°C (-14°F and -28°F)!


But in only one night all the snow melted!

However, it's still winter...

A lot of new comers in vintage world ask us:

"But what do you wear in winter???"

It's true that more summer clothes have survived...

and a lot of repro brands only propose coton dresses or openned shoes.

Yes, you can have a RETRO style without being cold!!!

First look for a nice vintage coat,

A pair of warm gloves (those are new from Ebay),

Vintage scarves are easy to find!

Wool pantyhose will be your best friends!!!

And a nice pair of boots will keep your feet warm!

I like to wear bright colors in winter, as weather is often sad.

My ladybugs brooch and earrings inspired me for this outfit.

Earrings are vintage bakelite,

my brooch is from the french designer Léa Stein.

I'm quite obsessed with her work!

Another secret for a warm winter outfit is...


Wool 50's skirt...

Wool vintage sweater!

This sweater sweedish inspired

was a present for my hubby's birthday...

another Tintin's outfit for him!

A lot of people think about the famous reporter when they see knickers...

he paired them with this gorgeous jacket!

The details are so great on it.

He managed to mix western wear

with a northern inspiration!

Sylvain likes to be different...

that's why he almost never wears jeans...

Fun experience...

This sweater is from JANTZEN...

this firm produced their first knitting in the 10's!

When swimsuits were made of wool!

In the 50's, their range went from beach to ski wear.

Try to always find a piece fun too wear in winter...

otherwise the winter blues will catch you!

What prevents you from the winter blues?
What fun accessories do you use during cold days?

Nous voici de retour après une semaine glacée! Mais en seulement une nuit toute cette belle neige a fondu et le blues de l'hiver nous rattrape! Une solution, choisir une tenue qui a du peps avec des accessoires qui vous font sourire! Pour moi, des couleurs inspirées par mes bijoux coccinelles et mon sac caniche bien kitch... et pour Sylvain, une tenue à la Tintin! Beaucoup de débutants dans le monde du vintage nous demandent souvent: "Mais comment s'habiller en hiver?"... la question peut paraître saugrenue, car bien sûr que les gens trouvaient le moyen d'avoir chaud dans les 50's! Cependant, il est vrai que plus de vêtements d'été ont survécu et que bons nombres de marques repro proposent uniquement sandales et petites robes en coton. Alors voici des tenues typiques que nous pouvons porter en de froides journées... un seul mot d'ordre... la laine! Et vous quelles sont vos inspirations hivernales?
- Bon dimanche! -


  1. You can't beat a good bit of wool! There's nothing like proper animal fibre - wool, cashmere, alpaca - for keeping warm in winter. You both look wonderfully cosy.

  2. Magnifique ton manteau, tu peux profiter des températures froides sans trop de difficultés. Très jolies tenues pour vous deux. Ça te va bien les cheveux lâchés.

  3. Great winter outfits! I especially love your coat :)

  4. Ah le petit look tyrolien de Sylvain j'adore ! jai un pull norvégien dans ce style super chaud ! limite mon manteau est de trop quand je le mets!

    En parlant de manteau le tien super cute, avec les details tous mignons là !
    Des bisous contre le froid


  5. I am loving the poodle & ladybugs combination! The Tintin ensemble is fabulous too!
    I used to have quite the 50's wardrobe in my native San Francisco, a bit of Anita Ekberg in La Dolce Vita, Kim Novak in Vertigo, & perhaps a dash of Jayne Mansfield just for naughtiness.
    Now I'm a 1950's Hollywood starlet gone Bollywood.....

  6. Sylvain is a very stylish and sexy Tintin! I love black and red, such an unsual combination and very lovely. :) The snow has just melted in Denmark too. Have a nice day, you two. :)

  7. Love your Miss L Fire Whistler boots. I have these too! Very stylish!

  8. Ooohh, that really is nippy for sure! I've felt those sorts of temps (and colder still) before and it's not something one soon forgets. It's awesome that you guys were able to get out and do a shoot in the midst of such bone chilling weather. I always find we shot less in the winter, if only because it simply isn't safe for our photographic equipment to get snowed on.

    Both of your outfits are so fun! Your poodle purse is beyond cute! Ooohh, and I just have to mention that you're wearing the very same colours (sometimes with grey added into the mix) that I lovingly call my unofficial winter uniform (black, red and white). Something about that pairing just calls to me winter after snowy winter.

    Have a fantastic last week of January!

  9. Where did you find this adorabel poodle purse? It's from a special designer, isn't it?
    The coat and skirt are spectecular winter pieces. Wow!

    I own just two true 50s winter skirts and I wore them almost every day during the icy days - which I normally don't do. Underneath: ugly modern Ski underwear!

  10. You looks fantastic in red!
    love it!

  11. Lovely pictures of outfits...
