No, it's not the end of our blog!!!

Just a long, long break....

Life is lately quite busy and
we were away for an US trip for Viva Las Vegas.

And it's so much easier to share pictures with Instagram!

Less time, less work and speedier with much more feebacks.

But we also really like to take good pictures

and even if our cell phones can now take good pictures,
it's not like a camera!

And as you can see, you don't need a bright blue sky to take stylish pictures.

My outfit here is almost entirely built with some new purchase from our recent US trip!

We have found again some really nice stuff!

These pretty shoes were found in the Miss L Fire Hollywood store, they are really classics and can fit everything!

I found this lovely skirt at the Rose Bowl flea market. 

I was really happy to find it at a good price

 as novelty prints are now so rare and mainly expensive!

But I must tell that I was a bit disapointed with this flea market.

This bright sweater was found in a vintage store also in Hollywood for cheap as it was in a pile of uggly 80's clothes.

Orange is usually not my color but it is a really nice shade and those monograms are amazing!

I have been a brooch addict for years

but I think recently the virus spreads around the world!

A lot a discussion Facebook groups appeared and some new brands started to create some nice designs.

This lovely rooster is from Loretta Lou.

Those breathless earrings are from Belle Lurette.

My bakelite bangles come from different flea markets.

Sylvain also found a lot of good vintage!

For once, I think he spent more than me!

He brought back home almost 50 vintage ties!!!

But he wear them everyday so it's not just a stupid collection...

I found this one for him for a few bucks at the Rose Bowl.

He also found some nice tie bars.

It's now this time of the year when we can enjoy our vintage cars again.

Our car doesn't turn only human heads...

It was SO funny to see these cows run to us

They wanted a hug for sure!

Sylvain is really happy to have his Cadillac back again...

After a year of restoration,

he really likes to drive her (it's like his second wife...) again!

So what's new for you after these 3 months?
Did you follow us on INSTAGRAM?

Non, non, ce n'est pas la mort de notre blog!!!! C'est juste une longue, longue absence, les semaines et les mois passent à une vitesse folle sans que l'on s'en aperçoive... Nous nous sommes absentés pour quelques semaines aux Etats-Unis pour le traditionnel Viva Las Vegas et nous voici de retour, des trésors vintage pleins les valises!
Ma tenue est d'ailleurs fortement composée de nouvelles trouvailles!
Sylvain n'est pas resté sur sa faim, presque 50 cravates ont rejoint sa collection! C'est déjà de nouveau cette période de l'année où l'on peut à nouveau sortir en ancienne, quel plaisir!
- A bientôt -

Like a RAINBOW....

We have not been really present on the blog lately...

I think it's always like that in winter.

We don't feel like going out with cold and rain!

But we have just bought a new camera as our last one was stolen last november...

so seeing some sun outside, we HAD to go out!

But it's still freezing...

I still wear woll tights...

But I let my boots at home for the day

and I choose those velvet "smarties" shoes from Miss L Fire.

They always have a huge success when they go out!

With that sun, we want spring to come quickly!

And to brighten my day I need COLORS!

You remember...

life is better in TECHNICOLOR!

I'm not afraid to look like a rainbow!!!

and try some new colors combos...

I would never thought that aqua, red and yellow would look great together!

I was inspired by this lovely skirt!

(It was made for me from a vintage painted fabric)

but also by these gorgeous brooches by Erstwilder!

I was a bit dissapointed with their last year collections.

But their january nautical release was just AMAZING!

I was naughty, I almost bought the full range...

A bust line for a real 50's sweater girl!

For once Sylvain choose lighter colors than me.

Just a touch of blue...

and some spring light colors!

You know how much I LOVE brooches...

I think I manage to convert him!

Now he likes to often wear a pin on his colar...

Look at this cute 40's girl!

These pins were free with Kellogg's boxes in the 40's.

A nice new collection to start!

We feels that we are always choose a church to make our pictures....

It's beginning harder and harder to find places out of time...

A lot of our followers like our pictures because of that.

We are trying to remove all modern stuff from our blog.

To bring you only the best of the 50's!!!

Are you shy with colors?
Or do you also think that life is better in technicolor?

Pas facile de se motiver à prendre des photos ou même à sortir avec ce temps de chien... vivement que l'hiver fasse place au printemps!
Une journée ensoleillée et un nouvel appareil photo nous a donné envie d'une petite balade et avec quelques clichés pour enfin alimenter le blog! Pour combattre cette morosité ambiante, je me suis habillée aux couleurs de l'arc-en-ciel... il ne faut pas avoir peur des couleurs quand on aime les 50's!
Rouge, bleu, vert et jaune! Qui aurait dit que cela puisse faire une combinaison harmonieuse??? J'ai été inspiré par cette magnifique jupe et 2 broches de la nouvelle collection nautique de Erstwilder!
Pour une fois, Sylvain avait choisi des couleurs plus discrètes...
- A bientôt dans notre univers vintage -
