I have always liked the retro/vintage look, 1940's and 50's fashion and have had a few items in my wardrobe as well as accessories that were reminiscent of this era for quite some time. 

But I have never fully embraced it, until recently and I'm happy that I have now done so. 

What I Wore Today

Cardi - M&Co Cropped Jewel Button Cardigan
Skirt - Lady V London Damson Floral Pleated Jive Skirt 
Pink Belt - Lindy Bop
Pink Pearls - Accessorize (purchased years ago-one of those items I referred to above)
Pink Bow Shoes - Carols Shoes
Pink Swallow - Brooch by Vivien of Holloway

Well, it has been quite some time since I have been on my blog. 

It seems like life had a sequence of events in store for me. 

After studying for and passing my UK Citizenship test I happened to go back to work full time, after being unemployed for mostly two years. 

It was quite a shock and a major adjustment, to say the least and then shortly thereafter my father passed away. 

Life became a maelstrom. 

In the way of creativity, I haven't done much nor been anywhere near my craft table since May. 

The only thing I have been working on since then is an art journal to help me work through what I need to and I am also embracing other things in life at the moment. 

I felt compelled to come on here today more so for my own reasons. I know I didn't have a huge following, nor actually much of a following at all. I'm certain no one was checking to see "when I would post next".  

For now who knows whether I will keep this up, alternatively take it in another direction or just stop all together. 

But nonetheless, this is me, for now.
