It has been a long time coming...
.... and you may well have noticed from the absence of any new posts ...that I have moved on to something new and exciting.

This has been fun while it lasted but it is time to move on.

My partner and I have a mutual love for "vintage" and rummaging through the myriad of stalls and antique markets for that something special. We combined that with both our love to "create" and have struck a single cord: we have decided to take a leap and start our own home grown: "cottage industry" by recycling and repurposing retro furniture and accessories . 
The upcycle vibe is strong at the moment and we want a piece of the pie.

Each piece is unique: so far we have sourced 50s furniture and have added an industrial meets modern vintage twist to each creation.
We also source curios and I work on small porcelain and ceramic pieces giving them a modern twist and a new purpose.

My only remaining link to my Frockanrolla roots will be the collection of vintage silk scarves that  I have sourced and "sassed up" with patches and trimmings...basically giving them a kick up their vintage asses!
.....stay tuned for photos...

So...enough blah blah blah...

Now We're Talking Fashion....

Nicolas Ghesquiere took the biker jacket to a whole new level for Louis Vuitton this season.
This coat epitomises the meaning of a true visionary ....and this coat is a vision in all its splendour.

Leather coat £5,300

Dior: this is part of Raf Simons final collection for this fashion house and it can be said , he is going out with a BANG!

This fresh and smart collection makes Spring feel edgy, layered and yet light. And those shoes have my name written all over them....

Wool sweater: £930
Cotton dress: £1,750
Patent leather shoes: £850

So grunge and oversized is back....and at the forefront of Hedi Slimane's collection for Saint Laurent...I like this look myself  and am always happy for it's revival.

Mohair sweater : £780
"Faux-georgette" dress : £3,135
