Evergreen



If we're friends on Facebook you'll know that we lost our beautiful girl, Polly, last Friday, hence the extended silence. Thanks to all who commented and messaged us, your kindness meant a great deal.


We're trading with Judy's at Bethnal Green this weekend and we've completely thrown ourselves into preparing for what's going to be our first vintage fair in over five months. During the Summer any spare time between festivals was spent vintage hunting so at least 80% of the stock we're taking on Sunday is completely new to us and had to be measured, priced, tagged and thoroughly rechecked. A three day job it may be but it's proved a welcome distraction.


When I was checking this 1970s John Marks for Anne Tyrell maxi I discovered a tiny hole I'd missed when we originally bought it. Whilst unfit to grace our rails it's more than welcome to adorn my body. I'm nowhere near as much as a perfectionist with my own wardrobe as I am with the Kinky Melon one. John Marks is the designer behind one of the most treasured pieces of vintage I own, my psychedelic velvet maxi coat (last worn when we traded in Bath HERE) - I'll be wearing this green dress underneath it when the weather gets colder.


I've discovered that wearing plain clothes (as opposed to those adorned with a wild print) require a bit more thought. Print hides a multitude of sins whereas large expanses of plain fabric show off badly fitting (or lack of) underwear. No chucking this dress on over my usual M&S cotton shorts, instead I had to delve deep in the knicker drawer for some non -VPL pants and an ugly, long-forgotten tee shirt bra. I'm not one of those women who spend a fortune on underwear, a multi pack of pants will last me years and I rarely bother with a bra. If I ever do get run over by a bus, the doctor would probably be appalled by what horrors lurk under my clothes but I can't imagine I'd be in any state to care.

Anne Tyrell for John Marks maxi (Charity shop), 1970s felt hat (50p, Car boot sale, 2009)
It's the first time I've owned anything made from Ban-Lon although it's phenomenally popular with our regular Mod customers when we have any on our menswear rail. It's breathable, retains it's shape and colour brilliantly, is fabulous to wear and, according to this crazy 1960s advert, still looks good after being scrumpled up in your handbag and worn after a shipwreck. It really is a mystery why still isn't being made.

It's Vix's law that dresses (plain or otherwise) should be accessorised to within an inch of their lives with as much bastard jewellery as is humanly possible to load on your body. The three-stone turquoise index finger ring is my latest addition - when we were out charity shopping yesterday a lady on her first day volunteering in Age UK said that she'd been told to expect me and pointed out this ring that had been specially reserved behind the counter. Obviously the description she'd been given of me and the manager's knowledge of my taste were spot on. 


If you're in or around London on Sunday it would be great to see you (you'll find all the details HERE). If not, you can check our itinerary for the rest of the year or browse the Kinky rails in our on-line shop. The gorgeous Mim did just that buying a Sixties Crimplene dress suit - she's rocking the hell out of it on her blog, HERE.

See you soon.

  1. Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of Polly. It's good that you and Jon were "there for her" at the end and able to ensure her comfort and dignity.

    Life does go on, and work is the sovereign remedy for most of life's challenges -- which accounts for the success you and Jon achieve at festivals! Thanks for the snickers about your knickers, dear Vix. One appreciates your acknowledging that some plain knit tops do require what a great-aunt called a "foundation garment".

  3. Like Melanie, I suspected your absence was due to your lovely girl's passing. I've been thinking of you ... That dress is just lovely, and I wouldn't be bothered tiny hole either. But you are right that plain clothes require a bit more thought. I have quite a few plain dresses, which are lovely, but usually end up wearing patterned ones. I love that vintage Ban-Lon ad, and wouldn't minding owning any if not all of those frocks! Wishing you good trading this weekend xxx

    1. I was reading a post where the normally plainly dressed blogger wore a patterned top. Comments included mentions of how print was "frumpy" and made small people look even smaller - isn't it strange? I'm always far more attracted to print because of how much fun they are to wear. xxx

  4. Vix, I'd guessed by your absence that the worst had happened, I'm so sorry to hear that poor Polly has gone. It's a ghastly thing but it gets easier with time as I'm sure you know. How is Stephen?
    I've never heard of that fabric but I recognize it from the close up. Slinky fabrics always require industrial strength knickers and bras on my 54 year old body... which is why I give them a wide berth generally.
    Shame I have plans this weekend but will peruse your itinerary for a possible future date. Sending love and big hugs. x

  6. sage advice from my Mother: always wear clean underpants, as you never know when you'll get hit by a bus. Which is funny, because we lived in a town with no buses.

    Sad to hear about Polly. The Doctor and I have decided no more pets until after we move (whenever that happens). It's been since June that Mr Scooty died and some evenings I still expect him to great me at the door.

  8. Oh Vix, I am so sorry about the loss of your lovely Polly Piglet. When we lose one of our feline (canine, rodent, etc.) family members it leaves a hole in your heart. I'm glad you have a fair to get ready for, because until the pain subsides, it's really all you can do is distract yourself. XO

  9. I was so sad to hear about Polly Piglet. It is hearbreaking to lose a pet, they ask so little and give so much.

    The green dress is fab on you. As someone who never used to wear much pattern, I have to say - patterns are bloody magic, aren't they? All those little things that just get lost in the colour... I would cheerfully snap up that whole Ban-Lon range.

    Thanks for the link - I was wondering why traffic had suddenly shot up on my little corner of the web! I'm planning to inflict the suit on my new workmates when I move teams on Monday. No idea what they'll think of it...

      Pattern is bloody magic and a bit like alcohol, once you've tried it there's no going back - it makes you happy, confident and ready to take on all the world throws at you. Plain feels a bit too revealing! xxx

  10. I'm so sorry about Polly Piglet. Work is a good distraction, but nothing can really take away the grief except time. I really am so sorry.

    Like you, I don't invest a tonne in undergarments, but I do keep a wide assortment of slips. The older (and lumpier I get) the more I rely on them to keep the clinging under control. That's a beautiful dress, and the colour is perfect on you.

    Good wishes for trading this weekend.

    1. Thanks so much, Goody.
      Slips! Why didn't I think of that? I've got a suitcase stuffed with vintage petticoats I've acquired over the years, they really would be the perfect smooth line under a clingy maxi. xxx

  11. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad work is giving you things to occupy your thoughts. Green looks lovely on you. When you have the double D's, not wearing a bra could cause the car wreck, but for those that can get away for the ghastly contraptions called bras-go for it!

    When I had just started work at 16 I saved my money and bought my mum a dress the exact same colour and lots of skirt in it but it was a halter neck. It came from a very posh shop. Mum couldn't believe I'd bought if her, she looked gorgeous. I'll see if I can find a pic.

  17. I'm so, so, sorry about Polly. I was expecting the worst when you didn't post for so long. It's difficult to explain or even try to justify the total devastation that engulfs you in this situation, especially to a person who has not loved a cat almost to distraction. I almost feel that this is not the time to make frivolous comments on other subjects, but we both know that your blog must carry on, as must life. So here goes...I think I must have spent less on underwear than any other woman in the country. I only wear bras (nowadays when i'm almost 71) if I'm wearing a low cut dress and I need a bit of uplift As for knickers (I refuse to call them panties) well I haven't worn them since I was 16, when one night I simply forgot to put them on and I had such a wonderful feeling of freedom that I never wore them again. This causes a few raised eyebrows when I visit the doctors' surgery, or if I have to make an emergency visit to the hospital, but I really don't care. and over the years the non-wearing of the aforesaid garments, have acted as a real aphrodisiac in certain relationships. After all, life's just a laugh isn't it? At least, I hope so blessings

  18. So sorry to hear about Polly. Hopefully she's up there in the great cat palace in the sky and having a ball.

    That dress is gorgeous and looks wonderful on you. The accessories are fab and I love the hat. I like boxer short knickers too because they don't usually have a VPL and are very comfortable. I tried thongs but threw them away in disgust. Unfortunately my undercarriage necessitates large bras.....

    How nice to have a charity shop staff member know your style so well they can save items for you.

    Hope the trading goes well at the weekend. I'm venturing up into the loft this weekend so fingers crossed!

    Thanks for your comment on my recent post, I did respond over there but just wanted to say when I said wearing my wedding dress after the day was socially unacceptable it's only because it had a skirt with seven layers and a long train. I would absolutely wear it again if I could but I think it's a once in a lifetime kinda dress. I'll be wearing my day after dress as much as I can though! :)

  50. I missed that on FB, I'm sorry. On a lighter note I keep meaning to tell you: thanks to you, I realized a couple years ago that wearing tons of wonderful jewelry isn't just for my faires and events. I used to feel that wearing tons of jewelry was only appropriate for special costume events because I had never seen anyone actually wear that amount of jewelry for daily wear. When I saw you wear the kind of jewelry I wear for my events as your every-day accessories I was blown away. I was like, "That's allowed? You mean I can dress like this all the time and not get arrested?" I had no idea! So I just wanted to thank you for being you and for showing me (and I'm sure many others) how to say poopoo to the fashion police and wear what makes me happy. Thank you <3

  53. So sorry to hear about Polly.

    Love the green dress, it looks great with lots of jewellery and felt hat. I have been wearing a felt hat a lot of late as it seems to keep the sun from your eyes and your head warm on autumn days, as well as looking good.

  54. I am sorry to hear you lost your Polly, she was a bonny wee thing. When I lost Hanoko-san I was maudlin for weeks. You do look good in green though :)
