Masami Nagasawa "More" Jan scans

Scans from the January issue of the Japanese magazine "More" featuring Masami Nagasawa. Anyone who used to visit my blog a couple of years ago will know how much I love this girl. In case you don't know yet, let me tell you, I love her to pieces. I really do. At times it is more of a sort of obsession and every day I live on Masami. Other times it is more like a secret love sleeping quietly, until the obsession strikes again. Why? I can't really explain it myself, I guess she's just my type. I can't think of anyone cuter than Masami. My little brain seriously thinks she's the cutest person ever and I go on about to all my friends for hours and every one gets sick of listening to me, especially because most of them don't share my opinion! Ha! 

I'll admit this shoot isn't one of her best, but I love it all the same because I'm that biased!

Last week we've been to our friend's small fashion show around Whitechapel. It was very cool and I could meet loads of friends. One of my friends was playing Sunra, which I had never heard before, but I loved it! Must chase it on youtube. 
On other news, I got a new phone and started to play with different apps, hence the above collages :)

Canal 125

Freddie Knit Top - Collectif
Trousers - Pendleton deadstock from SpanoVintage
Loafers - japanese from Emoda

Last Saturday it was our friend's birthday at Canal 125. It was a great night, despite the change of venues at the last minute, full of lovely and cool 60s loving people. The music was fantastic with the regular RnB 123 DJ's, of course, and although dance floor space was limited (so many people showed up), everyone couldn't help but dance! Lovely atmosphere as always in the mod's London scene, every one's always friendly and you can't help but feeling like you can depend on the person you've just met 2 minutes ago, fantastic!

I went quite casual really, though most people dressed up for the occasion, and the picture above is from right before we went out. I got some pictures of the night but they are so dark, I don't think it is worth sharing here...

Marriage Italian Style ~ 1964

*i do not take credit for any of the pictures, everything found via google*

I absolutely loved this filmed. I watched it for the first time a couple of years ago, it was my first Sophia Loren film. She is so beautiful, sexy and above all, such a talented lady it makes me a die hard fan. If you ever watched over 3 Sophia Loren films then you will know how incredible good she is at acting. Sure, not all of her films were fantastic, some of them were actually quite boring, but her acting was always top notch. She can play any role, it amazes me every time.

Marriage Italian Style is like a life long story of a woman, a prostitute, and man, a regular don juan. The struggles and length a woman has to go through in life until she finally gets what she wants and deserves, what always was promised but it took so long to arrive. It is a must watch classic, top performance by both Loren and Marcello Mastroianni.

Alla Nazimova

All images taken from fuckyeah1920s

There are not enough words to describe all the beauty and detail of these photos. All I can say is, I love Nazimova.

P.S. I like to think that in the second picture her capes becomes a snake. Is it just me?

Hole in the Wall

Dress - 70's vintage from SpanoVintage

Last week we've been to the night Hole in the Wall, organized by our friend Glen, in Mornington Crescent. It was lovely to see friends I haven't met for ages, seriously ages, and dance to good music. And I remembered to ask my boyfriend to take pictures! I seem to always forget recently, like I don't have a decent picture of New Year's eve... The dress I'm wearing in the pictures I got dirty cheap on sale from etsy and it's so cute, I love it!

I'll try to take more pictures of my outings from now on~

Barefoot In The Park ~ 1967

Today I've watched this darling comedy Barefoot In The Park . I just adore Jane Fonda, no surprise there, and she was enchanting in this film. She starts off by wearing a perfect baby blue swing coat with fur trims and I fell in love. The 1st and last picture were the best I could find while being too lazy to screen cap myself. All pictures were found on google, so credit to whoever produced them on the Internets. And then Jane is wearing this mustard turtle neck with brown cord high wait trousers and I feel like I will not be able to fall asleep until I reproduce the exact same combination.

Anyways, onto the film rather than the costumes, it was such a sweet and amusing story, I was laughing out loud by myself. A young couple of newlyweds facing the first complications of living together combined with family and neighbour problems, while still growing up and discovering themselves. I highly recommend it for a good laugh and eye candy, and I'm not only talking about the clothes (I look at a 31 year old Robert Redford and find myself sighing endlessly...).

Elle magazine Nov 1954 vintage scans

A few more scans from a 1954 French Elle magazine. I absolutely adore how French vintage magazines seem so much more natural and easy to copy, when compared to American ones. On the cover you can read "an easy fashion, out of reach of everyone". The Stop advert is pure love.

2013 Was a good a year and many things happened so fast. I visited Paris, Rome and Japan (my 3rd time! hurray!). I moved houses. I changed jobs. I got my hair cut short. I keep buying more and more vintage. I started blogging again almost at the end. 2013 was really rather fast for me. Or maybe I was just too busy to notice the months gone by. I had fun, thank you. Let's make 2014 even better!
