NEW LOOK vs 30's...

We had a really nice sunday....

Under the sun... that is quite rare for this season!

We went to Metz, the biggest city near home,

where we enjoyed a good meal with friends.

This is really the perfect weather for vintage...

No coat needed, just a jacket or a sweater!

And mainly NO rain!

Perfect to inaugurate my new shoes...

they are from Miss L Fire.

I love this brand but many of their models are not made for rainy days...

For once, Sylvain and I didn't match perfectly.

a casual 30's style for Sylvain

and a elegant 50's style for me!

I  love this vintage black jacket.

Just SO classic and SO NEW LOOK !!

It is french found long time ago in a flea market.

It was certainly a part of a full suit one day...

But it gives a perfect NEW LOOK style with a full skirt!

And what a skirt!!!

Lovely scarecrows border print, 

I cannot wear jacket without a brooch!

This is a Léa Stein cat.

I have just created a new FACEBOOK for Brooches addicts,
please join me HERE!


More cats with this AMAZING bracelet!

It is from Marie-Christine PAVONE.

We decided to have a boat ride on the Moselle River.

That was really fun!

A small 4 places electric boat...

My hubby chose his outfit

around this Varsity sweater.

He fell in love with this cute squirel!

This sweater is quite a mistery...

It was sold as a woman one.

But the way it is butonned means it's a man one...

However, it is quite short for a sweater from 1961...

that's why it is perfect for a 30's look!

We want more days like this one!!!!

What is your opinion about that sweater: woman or man?
Are you a brooches addict?

Quel beau dimanche nous avons eu!!! Un temps parfait pour tout collectionneur de vintage! Pas trop chaud et surtout pas de pluie!
Nous en avons profité pour flâner le long de la Moselle (et même sur la Moselle, puisque nous avons loué un petit bateau pour une balade bien sympa!) Un style bien NEW LOOK pour moi et un style un peu gavroche pour Sylvain... on aimerait des journées comme celle-ci tous les jours!

Yesterday was a bit special...

we welcomed back home our '59 Cadillac!

"She" was away for several months for restoration.

My husband imported it 22 years ago,

and we drove so much with it...

from Britain to Spain!

Even in winter, so "she" needed urgent care!

So we took my Chevy to pick up "her sister"...

The weather was just perfect

to drive a vintage car!

And here is my outfit for that special day:

2 colors that I used to never worn...

All this outfit was built around this gorgeous 50's skirt!

I used to think that yellow was not a color for blondes...

but I changed my mind...

pairing yellow with brown is just a classic!

I'm really surprised to see how many times 

I wore yellow shoes this summer...

Any vintage girl needs yellow shoes in her life!

My skirt had a music theme...

So I thought this copper set was just a perfect match!

I found the bracelet in an Antiques Mall in L.A.

and I found matching booch and earrings on Ebay.

It's fun to bring back a set all together!

I love that so frenchy purse!

And I can see that...

we matched again!

moreover he wore a brown jacket in the morning!

Yellow and brown...

and a touch of orange for him!

It took me many years to convince him

 to restored this car...

it was hard to find a trustfull person to do the job.

but now it's done, he is really happy with the result!

His Cadillac will be soon in the same condition than my Bel-Air.

Do you think that yellow can suit blonde?
Have you ever restored a vintage car?

Hier était un peu spécial... nous avons accueilli à nouveau à la maison notre Cadillac 59! Elle avait quitter notre garage il y a quelques mois pour subir un bon lifting... après des années de bons et loyaux services, elle avait bien besoin d'un petit coup de jeune pour nous suivre encore des années dans nos périples à travers l'Europe! Nous avons donc pris ma Bel-Air pour la chercher... Et une fois de plus, nous étions assortis!!! 2 tenues autour du jaune et du marron... bref, une bien belle journée!
