my blog

Welcome to my


I LOVE RETRO / vintage clothing and accessories – especially hats! I am crazy about fashion of 1930’s and 1940’s , such a style, such an elegance…. Especially movie costumes!

I always liked old Hollywood movies and from the start I became a huge fan of wonderful costume designs. When I got married and moved to Greece over 10 years ago (yes, you read correctly – G R E E C E!!) and became a HOUSEWIFE with plenty free time on my hands, I started to collect vintage patterns. And sewing. And designing.

I collect vintage sewing patterns – in large vintage sizes, if I can an find them (…and afford them). Why large vintage sizes? Two reasons: I am simply too lazy to enlarge the patterns to my size and ………. Now be real, which grown up woman has sizes 30-24-33 inch. Well, not me…. that’s for sure!!!! I am more 38-30-41 ….. and facing bravely the reality!

This blog is for all you who look for retro inspiration, movie illusion versus home made reality.

I will try to add to each post a movie scenes or sequence.  Please Note:  These videos are for educational purposes only. No copyright infringement intended.
