It's a shopping list written on the back of a grocery receipt dating back to 14 February 1934. Almost makes me want to prepare a meal of clams and pumpkin come Sunday. And I'm a total cynic... I'm sure Paper Dress Vintage won't mind me sharing it. And I should probably add they've got lots of pretty things should you be in a Valentine's gifts buying mood. They have an ace new website too.
Here's something I wouldn't have automatically tied in with the big V... Jewellery designer Tom Binns' Alice in Wonderland collection in collaboration with Disney. Here's a couple of pieces.
Red hearts inspired by the red queen. He designed them to coincide with Tim Burton's long awaited and no-doubt fashion-fabulous film starring Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter. Not exactly child-friendly prices, not exactly adult-friendly either, but pretty unforgettable statement pieces.
Here's my vintage alternative, picked up in Little Red a few weeks back. Very un-Valentines, very me.
