Today was another sad weather day...

That kind of days when you cannot plan anything...

as rain is just around the corner!

It's the season when it's hard to plan outfits...

It's as cold as in winter

but I really cannot abandonned my cotons dresses and skirts yet!

It's also the last couple of days when we will be able to go out with vintage cars!

Soon, snow will arrive and salt on roads with it!

As our '59 caddy was fully restored this year...

It will hibernate for a few months with its 3 "friends"

in our cosy garage!

When cold and rain arrive, I always dream to live in some sunny places...

I brought sun in my outfit with ...  CACTUS!!!

I built my outfit around a beautiful set: 
necklace and matching earrings!

Another GORGEOUS creation from Bow & Crossbones!

Their cactus collection is just so fun

they could even customized mine with small red and gold pearls!

I really like that personnal attention!!!!

But how to match cactus with a winter outfit???

I chose that really full skirt... 

I don't know how to describe this fabric...

Batik? Indian? African?

It's fun because I found this skirt in a thrift store in... Budapest!

It is from the 50's with no doubt seing its construction...

But it's really not an usual pattern!

I also wore this gorgeous vintage mexican cape.

My shoes are from Miss L Fire, a 40's flair with comfort!

And I cannot go out without a brooch!!!!

This lovely cactus is from Belle Lurette, 2 talented french ladies!

Sylvain is so happy that his "baby" is finally back home!

This Cadillac was his first vintage car...

he was just 19 years old when "she" arrived in his life!

An OLD couple!!!

The paint is SO shiny now...

a real miror!!!

And this time my hubby chose to match his car instead of me...

is it a sign???

Dispite of the cold, we had a pleasant photos shoot

with some good music!

We travelled a lot with this caddy around Europe...

and we hope to plan some new trips really soon with "her"!

Are you ready for winter?
Do you also own vintage cars?

Pas facile la météo ces derniers temps... c'est pourquoi je n'aime pas aller vers l'hiver... froid, pluie... que prévoir avec un pareil temps? Il ne reste plus que quelques jours au mieux quelques semaines pour profiter de nos voitures anciennes... L'hibernation est proche pour elles... le sel, le pire ennemi des anciennes, va bientôt recouvrir nos routes!
Alors on en profite pour sortir notre Cad tout juste restaurée. Mais que porter en cette mi-saison qui penche de plus en plus vers l'hiver... on hésite à sortir les bottes et les gros lainages... j'ai voulu apporté un peu de soleil à ma tenue avec des accessoires CACTUS! Encore une tenue bien fun à composer!!!
Pour fêter le retour de sa belle au garage (et oui, leur histoire d'amour a commencé bien avant la nôtre!), Sylvain semble avoir choisi des couleurs assorti à sa nouvelle peinture étincelante!
Et voilà... je pense qu'il est désormais trop tard pour luter... Noël approche à grand pas... J-36...
- Bon week-end à tous! -

Matching the BROOCH...

In just one week, we jumped directly in winter!

It's so COLD!!!

So it's time for winter coats to go out!

I found this AMAZING one on Etsy last year.

Its color is a deep violet.

And what a breathless colar and sleeves!!!

Sylvain didn't feel like wearing a coat yet...

but I think he had regrets as he was freezing!

But it's true that a coat can ruined all your efforts...

It can hide a outfit that you have patiently put together!

It took me a lot of courage to remove it

to show you what was underneath!

A gorgeous dress?

In fact, it's a vintage 50's set: skirt and blouse!

And the funnier fact about it is that I found the skirt a few months after the blouse!!!!

As you may know, I'm a crazy brooches addict...

I discovered recently 2 talented sisters who are making new creations.

This funny face is from their store DEER ARROW.

You must visit their shop, so much cuteness to see!
I have just placed my Xmas order! 

I thought it would have been fun to wear my black glasses to match my brooch on that day!

They aren't just costume ones, I need glasses but wear lenses on most of my blog pictures...

This tiny 40's hat was an early find more than 10 years ago I think.

I have also owned  this lucite purse for years...

I have sharpened my style since then but still love them!

After years in vintage style, you better know how to put an outfit together...

You learn how important details are....

and colors!!!

But for us it's still really fun to dress up aftter all this time!

Don't be afraid to be different, wear what you like!

Do you know Deer Arrow ?
Do you still wear pieces bought years ago?

Il semble qu'une semaine ait suffit pour passer directement de l'automne à l'hiver... il est temps pour les gros manteaux de sortir du placard!!! Un sentiment mitigé entre la joie de les porter à nouveaux et le fait qu'ils réduisent à néant nos efforts! Et oui, ils cachent totalement une tenue qu'on a pris le temps de construire avec amour... C'est pour cela que Sylvain ne s'est pas encore décidé à les porter... peut-être à regret par cet après-midi glacial!
On ne me voit pas souvent avec des lunettes dans ces pages, mais j'en ai bien besoin (je suis myopte comme une taupe!)... je préfère en général porter des lentilles, mais là je me suis dit pourquoi pas un petit clin d'oeil à cette jolie broche récemment achetée sur Deer Arrow! J'ai craqué sur pas mal de leurs modèles, ces 2 soeurs ont vraiment du talent!
