For 1 euro I found this 1953 Country Life Magazine at the market last weekend which has wonderful pictures and full coverage of Queen Elizabeth II's cornation. It also contains stories on the polo matches, grand estates for sale and a bit of gardening. Score!

Shedding off the Black

Not a stich of black in this entire outfit, even the shoes are green and the sunglasses are brown. Head to toe vintage.

My New Favorite Dress

This is one of my best vintage finds to date. Turquoise cotton 1960's peek-a-boo mini mod dress. I found it at the one day flea market last weekend. It needed a good cleaning, some good TLC, and a good home. I'm so glad we found each other. The shoes are vintage Ferragamos found on Etsy and the cloche is from H&M.

If you love Chictopia, please like my outfit here. THANKS!
