Weekend Links – 8th January 2011

Some of these are a little older, (dug out of last year's bookmarks archive), but interesting none the less;

I loved this article on Chinese couturière, Guo Pei, written by Cathy Horyn. Plus the slideshow has some dresses that are just out of this world, my favourite is the blue & white one, it reminds me of the china in my Mum's dinner service.

I saw a link to this site about the construction of Dior's New Look on Gertie's blog some time ago & have gone back & re-read it about 10 times now!

Speaking of Gertie she posted another interesting piece this week on feminism, undergarments & body image. As always many of the comments are as interesting & thoughtful as the post itself.

Now that the serious reading is out of the way, here's some pretty pictures & super quick reads;

I really want to try this, this summer on the BBQ.

Solanah from Vixen Vintage did a guest blog at Casey's Elegant Musings this week with some handy wool washing tips.

I love all these hairstyles from 1965. They must have taken so much time & effort!
