Mr & Mrs Vintage Habit

Time for a bit of an update on our Vintage Habit
This beautiful Admyra of London crimplene summer coat arrived from Ebay this week at a purse breaking £4.99 + p&p.
I teamed it up with this 1970's Ridella secretary style dress, which has a little edge to edge jacket with it.  £3.99 + p&p and gave the whole ensemble an outing  to see the Piano Guys at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.  Check them out on You Tube their ability to "mash" classical and pop music together while perched on top of a cliff or the Great Wall of China is amazing
Vintage handbag from Stockport Vintage Village Market £8.  The monthly vintage market is on again this Sunday.  See the link in the side bar.
Here's a nice Fulmer blouse found in the Age UK mobile charity shop in Ulverston, Cumbria.  Very expensive - £1.50
While we were in the Lake District I found this peachy bag in the Bay Search & rescue charity shop for £1.99

This has been a very expensive blog page... hee hee ..... Not !

Let's top it up a bit with this gorgeous Ted Baker double cuff shirt £8, Sue Ryder shop in Ramsbottom and a classy tie 
We've had some lovely comments from people who've seen us out and about this week.

" You always make us smile when we see you"

"Mr Holland is so dapper"

" You are both such an inspiration"

" How do you manage to find such great clothes"

" Can you restyle me"

" You look fantastic"

We are really enjoying our sudden new found fame and the new friends we've made. Vintage clothes and restyling is a great passion we both enjoy.


  1. Fantastic Lynn! It's great to hear of a couple doing something together that they both enjoy; and finding celebrity at the same time is great. You'll be getting interviewed on local tv before long ;)
    Have a great weekend; I hope it's dry with you, we've got mizzle today, and don't break the bank tomorrow ;) Love and hugs always xoxox

    1. The only tv programme we would get on Mo is Antiques Roadshow haha, a pair of stylish antiques. Or what about Secret Hoarders but not so much of the secret heehee xx

  2. My daughter in Brighton dresses just like you do and their home is styled with everything vintage. It is featured in an 8 page spread in June issue of "Period Living". Take a free peek if you can find a copy in your supermarket or WHSmith P72. She certainly wouldn't get the same buys as you for under £2 in Brighton!

    1. I'm nipping out for a copy now Jo x

  3. You both always look wonderful, stylish, unique and cleverly put together, no wonder people want to employ you as their stylist! See you tomorrow! xxx

  4. I so love the enthusiasm you both have for this vintage style .... It's fantastic!
