Ah, just how does vintage writer and stylist Elsa Billgren always look so lovely? She’s one of my favourite vintage girls.

Sara of No Pattern Required has this amazing round-up of cool mid-century kitsch available on eBay right now. A set of atomic star burst plates? Don’t mind if I do.

Lauren of American Duchess writes about busts in the Regency period. If you’ve ever wondered how Jane Austen manages to not fall out of her empire waist dress, read on.

Jen of Yesterday Girl has found some lovely stripey tops that look amazing with her beatnik Fifties styling. I so want one!

Lolita of Vintage Starlet writes about  her love for the costumes in Gone With The Wind.

My favourite Tumblr this week is Adeline’s Attic – full of amazing 1920s and 1930s images.
