Pink and Red.... The colours you're missing out on!!!

Pink and red is one of our favourite colour combinations, but it's not one people often think to try. 
Now's your chance! There's no better time to give it a whirl than during a romantic week in February!

If you don't believe how chic and femine these two colours can look, then take some inspiration from some of the original vintage and modern images we've chosen for you...

 Isn't this the kind of outfit you'd like to wear when wakling the dog!!!

1960's pink and red air hostess uniforms...ultra short!!!

Now, how to turn these inspirations into reality:

We love how these modern looks have a nod towards the past.

Tea length skirt, statement blouse, cape and travel case. Super chic!

The hot pink sweater and tea length skirt has created a much bolder look. It's classic with a vibey edge.

If skirts aren't your thing then how about some 1940's style tailoring?

We were pleased as punch when one of our sparkling vintage dresses got to go on a little holiday to New York! 
This incredible vintage Lillie Rubin dress is dazzling beyond belief. We like to think it had a right ol' party when it was on shoot with stylist Courtney Smith and photographer Alex Hutchinson!
You can see it now in the gorgeous 3rd edition of Magpie magazine.

Real Bride: Uniquely Glamourous!





Oh we adored this wedding dress when it was in the shop, it was such an incredible design. It was very much a 1940's style but from a later era of the 70's.
We were over the moon when bride Siobhan chose it for her special day. The dress looked like it had been made for her and was absolutely stunning on!

Siobhan chose one of our bespoke feather combs to add an extra vintage flourish to her look and I think we can all agree, these pictures are gorgeous!!!

Thanks to Siobhan for sending us in her pictures and congratulations from Dirty Fabulous!
