When I started this blog in summer 2011...

I really didn't know that 5 years later I would still post there quite regulary.

With up and down, this blog still exists and I'm quite proud of that!

As all my anniversary posts,
here is a resume of the past year on the blog.

You just need to click on the pictures for a link to the original post!

So if you missed some of them, it's your chance!!!

So what happened to us this year???

We traveled quite a lot with a trip in Eastern Europe last summer,

3 weeks in the USA for Viva Las Vegas

and Paris, Normandie, South of France, Belgium, Germany...

Once more winter was not the best season for good posts...

but this year I only choose to make pictures when I wanted to,

a lot of outfits didn't make it to the blog... with no guilt!

A lot of them were just posted on our Instagram.

I tried to experience new things in my outfits...

I wore more skirts that ever before,

I liked to experience a few traditonnal outfits: mexican, tyrolian...

I even wore for the first time western boots!

I was not afraid to wear twice the same accessories or sweater on posts if I liked them...

that was one of my big problem in the previous years...
only wanted new things for the blog!

but my wardrobe keeps growing....

that's why we made 2 new dressing rooms in our house this year!

We also met some new friends...

and flea markets are still our favorite hobby!

I think that it was quite a good year!

I was really happy to discovered all these posts again!

Yes, writing a blog is a LOT of work,

but when you see the result of a full year, I can just say... WAOW!!!

What was your favorite posts of this year?
When did you discovered our blog?

Et oui.... 5 ans déjà!!! Il était difficile de prévoir en cet été 2011 que ce blog serait toujours là après tout ce temps!!! Oui, un blog c'est beaucoup de travail, mais au final on se sent fier du résultat quand on fait le bilan de l'année écoulée! Comme tous mes posts anniversaire, il suffit de cliquer sur une photo pour revenir au post de départ. C'est donc votre chance si vous en avez manqué certains! Ce fût une année bien remplie, pas mal de voyages, de nouvelles rencontres, mais les basiques restent!
En espérant que vous aurez apprécié cette année passée en notre compagnie et que vous nous soutiendrez encore pour les mois à venir!!!

From the 50's TO the 40's....

Some vintage girls are just interested in one era...

For example, just the 50's or just the 30's.

For me, I have 2 decades in heart!

50's of course but also 40's!

I really like the puffy skirts of the 50's,

that make me feel like a princess...

but I also like the simple lines of the 40's fashion!

"A" shape skirt, small puffy sleeves...

So simple but SO elegant!

I usually HATE paisley, but I really fell in love with that dress.

I found it NOS in Bruxelles 2 days ago!

I could not wait to wear it, really perfect for hot weather!

I paired it with my 40's purse... 

a lot of people believe it's a fishing basket...

This hat from the late 30's, early 40's is typically french.

I bought it NOS years ago, a real treasure... but SO fragile!

You must have noticed my gorgeous brooch...

I will tell you a secret, it is not vintage!

It was made for me by the friendly Melanie from

Please visit her shop, her work is amazing and she can also customized her designs just for you (colors, rhinestones...)

Here is a 40's summer style by Sylvain!

Like me he loves the 50's but can easily switch to the 40's or even 30's.

He likes those kind of knickers but they are quite hard to find now.

Great sporty watch from the 50's!

One more time our familly asked us:
"Did you choose to match today?"
One more time it was unexpected....

Do you like different decades?
Did you find some great vintage pieces recently?

Beaucoup d'amoureux du vintage se concentrent sur une seule période, ce n'est pas le cas pour moi. Bien sûr, j'adore les 50's avec ces jupes corolles avec des jupons qui vous font sentir comme une princesse, mais j'aime aussi les lignes simples des années 40... une simplicité qui donne de l'élégance! Je suis tombée amoureuse de cette robe dès que je l'ai vu dans une boutique à Bruxelles samedi dernier.... même si d'habitude je déteste le motif paisley, le mariage de couleurs et la coupe de cette petite merveille m'ont séduites et en plus neuve d'époque, que demander de plus?
Sylvain est comme moi, il peut très bien passé d'un style 50's à 40's, voir 30's... Une fois de plus, nous étions assortis sans l'avoir réellement cherché....
- A bientôt -
