As you read this I am flying high in the sky somewhere between Perth and Singapore, hopefully with a peacefully sleeping toddler and a comfortable reclined seat. (One can dream!)
 
As mentioned previously, I am heading to India for our (now) annual visit. We will be stopping over in Singapore for a night on the way there and coming back through Kuala Lumpur for a few nights on the way home. Needless to say I am pretty darn excited!!

I will be updating the blog as much as I can while I'm away, but to follow along with all my travels and daily updates, be sure to follow Vintage Chic on Instagram: @vintagechiclady (#vintagechicinindia)

So long Perth, see you in a few weeks...

I remember when I was younger my Nana made my sister and I culotte shorts. At the time we were both mortified when our mum forced us to wear them. Luckily, it was mainly to family occasions to show our appreciation to Nana for the culottes, while secretly hoping she would never make them again.

Fast forward (quite) a few years and here I am showing my appreciation for culottes once again, but this time I am secretly hoping I will be adding a pair to my wardrobe very soon! 

It's funny how our appreciation changes over time isn't it?!

Spring Racing Part Two: The Outfit

This pink on white pattern has Spring all over it.

Spring Racing Part One: Bags and Shoes


Spring racing bags, clutches, shoes and heels


Spring Racing season is upon us.
It's just another one of the many things I love about Spring (right behind sunshine and flowers, that is!) and even though I haven't actually attended a race meet in the longest time, I love stalking the elegance and glamour that comes from the fashion on the fields. 

 So, I bring you to part one of my Spring Racing 'What to Wear' series with the all important bags and shoes. Having the right bag and shoes for any event is just as crucial as what you are wearing and since I am not really a fan of the birds nest-esque fascinators (I just don't get them!) I definitely focus more of my attention on the other accessories!!

Check back tomorrow for Part Two: The Outfit.

New Hair, Don't Care.

Emily Suresh, Vintage ChicIMG_0453

As promised, a quick post to update you all on my new hair do!

You may have been expecting something a little more drastic, but this is in fact quite a big change for me. As someone who has been 'growing their hair long' pretty much since I was born, getting it cut at all is kind of a big deal! It's strange how much emotional attachment we have with our hair isn't it?! 
 
It may have taken me 30 or so years to get to this point but I am so glad I did, I am loving this length and the difference in the condition of my hair is amazing... who knows I may even go above the shoulders next time!! (Ok, maybe not. I don't think I will ever get to that stage!)

Hope you are all enjoying your Monday!
