I discovered Fancy Fine on a fateful day in autumn... the leaves were bustling outside my window as a chilly fall breeze rustled the trees... and a small gasp escaped my lips as I opened an imagine of Ms.Ashley in the most perfect vintage frock and fascinator! I was in blog-love. ^_^

A little gasp also escaped my lips when I saw the beautiful "Aimee camel wool coat" on Bohemian Bisoux Vintage. Delightful! Thank-you for the great giveaway opportunity!

AGNES said...

1. I found your blog years ago through Liebemarlene! I have always been a fan of vintage clothes but I had a period in my life when I was tierd in reading blogs so i stoped. A couple of months ago i looked at a map of pictures in my computer and i found a photo of a cute girl with brown hair wearing a nice dress, I did'nt know who the girl was or where i've got the photo but the photo was named "FancyFine" and I googled it and found you, once again.
2. From the Bohemian Bisoux Vintage i would like the white 50's cocktail dress. It would be perfekt for when I graduate from my school in june (In Sweden the girls always wear white dresses on their graduation day, and white sailor caps!! it's gonna be awesome!)
