London Fashion week is now long gone but I thought that I would indulge myself in a little of what I love in fashion and romantic images..........

 Pretty ..........
 Frothy ..........

 HAZARD WARNING !!!! .......... smoking and laying on railway lines is not recommended for a healthy lifestyle !!!! hehe

 Love this look ..........

 I wouldn't mind this at the bottom of my garden ..........

 Rock chick plus romantic lace .......... from the ridiculous to .....

 the sublime !!

 Soft .....

 Severe .....


 I really love the vintage lacy, frothy, ruffly look, coupled with more severe jackets and boots ....

 More shutters ..... a permanent feature here @ HOME

 I only like this if it's faux fur .....

Love the skirts, love the boots, love all of it ..... 

 Just wish that I could still wear my skirts this short !!

Romantic and beautiful

.......... and, a final farewell to summer with this beautiful romantic beach image.

Have a fashionable, indulgent and romantic week.

  7. Dear Jackie...you just took me on such a roller coaster of memories and emotions. Such a beautiful post....I did own lightyears ago a similar pair of panties...the opening dress with the lace back is so beautiful, the lace, the doves etheral...did i mention this was the most beautiful post to wake up to on a rainy morning?

  8. Ah, the first image is the epitome of French Chic. I adore that image. Ah, those antique glass bottles - I am besotted. This is such a dreamy post.

  9. if I had a waist like that, or legs like that I would wear bows everywhere!!!!

    lovely evening

  26. Jackie, j'taime all of these!

    Happy week to you.

  27. beautiful pictures.. i stole the photo with the paeonies if i may

  28. Dear Jacqueline, What a fabulously frothy and feminine collection of images. You have a very definite and creative sense of style which just shines through your postings. Your eye for detail is extraordinary and each picture offers so much which is of interest and, very often, a sense of fun. Pure escapism for me today in a rather grey and dismal London. Lovely!

  29. Holy Mackerel! I love everything!! Everything!! Just ship it to me.
    The smoking photo made me laugh. When you thing about it, smoking is really the same thing as lying on a railroad track. One knows the train is coming, just not sure when. Pretty good ad campaign, I'd say.

  30. Bonjour Jackie,
    Très romantique - parfait! You are the best Jackie, you have a fabulous eye for beauty!
    Enjoy a lovely, ruffly week my friend!

  31. Gorgeous each & every photo. Now I want to get dressed up but no place to go. I quite like the rocker chick with the biker boots & lace, but my favorite of all is your signature look with the top hat!! That's my girl.

    I will refrain from cigs & tracks from now on, I promise. Hugs to you for a lovely Tuesday evening Jackie xo xo

  32. Ahhh, I feel like I've just come away from a mini-retreat full of beauty and softness. Love it all!

  33. You know that first dress is beyond pretty...it's absolutely stunning! What a perfect collection of pictures.

  34. Fabulous images, Jackie..I adore them all. I am a jacket and boots girl and a tomboy at heart - a little frilly with a little rustic is what I love best! I too miss being able to wear the short skirts....that was another life ago...haha..Have a beautiful week, Jackie..and thank you for adding some romantic images to my week! xxoo :)

  35. Oh Jackie, what a great post.....can´t get enough of those wonderful pictures.......i´ll come back some more times to enjoy all the lovely impressions.........THANK YOU SO MUCH, my dear friend!!!!!!!!! Have a wonderful week,

    Hugs Jade

  36. Wow !!
    So many lovely things and clothes ! I almost love them all. And I want to have a hat :)


  37. O Jackie..................i really really like your blog....so amazing this........love love love Ria.....

  38. Oh...that first dress...and that fur. Gorgeous.

  39. It's very, very hard to beat romantic - you've summed it up in the most heavenly way. We should all take the time to include some every day! Leigh

  40. What a collection of truly beautiful photos! My fave is the bouquet on the cement steps! What a combo! Thank you for such a wonderful treat!

  41. Of course you would like any look with a top hat!

  42. Hello Jackie

    A presto
    Zaira xx

  45. Hi Jackie,

    This is such a beautiful post; the romantic clothes, chandeliers, rooms and hideways. The touch of 'gothic' and 'rock chick'. I love it!

    I agree with you on the skirt. If only.....However, with a few more cm's to it and a pair of thick panties or leggings...it still is possible :-)!

    Enjoy your wednesday!

    Lieve groet,


  46. What a fantastic post Jackie, gorgeous images!!!!

    Love the hazard warning on the railway/smoking photo!!!!

    Hope all is well with you :) xoxo

  47. All too beautiful for words Jackie......xv

  48. hello my dear friend, the inspirational pictures, romance, lace and a little tougher stuff is a good mix I think. Many warm hugs to you Jackie / Ingela.

  49. Dear Jackie,
    You never let us down with the best collection of all! This image are all frothing over onto me! My favorite are those frothy grays...I can taste them!!~~~~

  50. LOVE these photos, Jackie. Frothy and pretty and a little edgy. Want me some roller skates to wear with my petticoats. Oh, and that luscious pink bouquet of peonies--yum. You have the best eye in blogland for all things romantic, my sweet friend. xoxo Gigi

  51. I'm dizzy from all that decadant lace. I want to be a fairy princess and get to wear such clothes. It's not fair! That second photo with the layers of lace just about killed me and then you kept giving me more. I'm in heaven. Reminds of that site I sent you but even more romantic.
    I'm with you....only like fake fur....can't see how anyone can feel good wearing an animal on their back!

  52. That post was a whole lot of pretty! I drool over those YSL pumps!

  53. the peonies
    and the panties with the bow in back are fabulous.

  54. comin late to the party! lovin the froth, the bow, and bouquet... xx

  55. OMG!!!
    I´m speechless!!!

    This post is amazing!!!
    I love it all! The clothes, the light, the images and positions...WOW!

    You always inspire me, Jackie!!!

  76. Vintage lace with little jackets and (big) boots would be right up my street too. Maybe I could do with a Jacqueline to jazz up my wardrobe a bit before it turns totally pink (imminent danger).

  77. I LOVED these images! Thank you for sharing! Blessings -
