At Café de Paris!
At Café de Paris!

Shopping, sewing and sipping our way back in time, influenced by the fabulous vintage style of the 1940s & 50s and our favourite classic cocktails.

We love the glamour and elegance of vintage style – from the 1930s through the 1940s and 1950s to the early 1960s – and as we embark on our journey to vintage style we decided to create a blog of our finds and successes!

Why ‘French 75’? One of our other loves is cocktails! As we don’t have particularly vintage sounding names or alter egos (yet!), naming our blog after a cocktail seemed quite natural!  We both have our favourites, but THE cocktail we both love most is the French 75, an elegant gin and champagne classic.
