blue is just my favourite colour

1990s Vogue does 1950s Oscar girl living la dolche vita in Venice.
Like to think she’s greeting the many fans of her super colour-coordinated look, rather than waving off the hubby before tackling the mountain of dishes in the kitchen sink.

Three Little Pigs…

2: Pigs Might Fly silver charm by Scarlett Jewellery at Not on the High Street.
3: British original vintage 9ct yellow gold pig charm by Annina Vogel. Online exclusive at Liberty

The kitschy vibe of the technicolor images, combined with her camp provocativeness, glam nails and ancient-Egyptian-look accessories are in the same world as the publicity cartoons for Carry on Cleo.

These 'Psychedelic Beach Blondies' by Hemsley & Hemsley look too good to eat! Whilst they may look like close cousins of that childhood favourite, the party ring, the fluoro colours here come from superfoods, like tumeric and blueberry, rather than a cocktail of food dyes - delicious as they may also be. 
For those who don’t know, Hemsley & Hemsley is the London-based food company creating healthy, homemade foods without compromising on taste set up by sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley. 
With a celebrity client list and a regular contributors spot at vogue.co.uk, not to mention their model looks, the pair have drawn a good deal of press lately. But believe the hype. Excuse the pun, but the recipes do what they say on the tin: deliver nutritious, great-tasting food which doesn’t feel depressingly wholesome. 
Feeling guilty at the prospect of binning a bowlful of past-it bananas, I had a go at their banana bread over the weekend. The recipe contains no sugar, just a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup, and yet still has enough satisfying sweetness to qualify as an afternoon treat with a cuppa. The local shop didn’t have ground almonds, so I used spelt flour instead, which worked fine. Just didn’t need as long to bake.
The Hemsley sisters created their Blondies for the launch of a pop-up shop by fashion consultant Yasmin Sewell in East London on Saturday. Unusually located in an empty swimming pool in Shoreditch, the store, called ‘Beach in the East’, is inspired by California and ’70s skateboarding clan The Z-Boys. The temporary space showcases brands and pieces edited by Sewell, all sharing an affinity with the ’70s Californian skater mood. Labels on sale include Henry Holland, Acne and Hillier and several designers have also created one-off products for the shop. What’s more, these limited-edition pieces will also be available online at farfetch.com from 29 May, so you can click to browse and buy if you can’t get to the London store. 
The pop-up is open until 24 August. Here’s hoping the Blondies last…

American stage and film actress Margaret Sullavan, c1938. Love her tomboy style, like a precursor to Diane Keaton in Annie Hall.
With their relaxed tailoring, the trousers she wears here are a bit like the culottes popping up on the high street at the moment. See this leather pair at Topshop, or this polka dot pair by The WhitePepper for details. Pair with a more form-fitting top like Sullavan and you’ve got boy-meets-girl style all sewn up.

This photo features on one of the cigarette cards in the ‘Modern Beauties’ third series, from British American Tobacco.

Topshop Unique A/W ‘13
Love the colours here. The zingy orange-red of the trousers reminds of Heinz tomato soup, in a good way! Like the unexpected combination of the red with the futuristic blue eye shadow. 
All of the Topshop Unique models rocked the same eye makeup, check out the other looks here.
