tick tock, tick tock

Another one of our fave online stores from the mighty USA is Decoy Lab a maker of decorative clocks and home decor from Kansas City.

Decoy Lab have a variety of quirky clocks such as this modern take on a traditional cuckoo clock. Available in four colours orange, lime, aqua and yellow, this charming cuckoo clock would be a fun addition to any home. We also adore this cute wooden Bambi style fawn clock.

Check out their store to view the other great clocks they also have available!

retro is right

Mod Cloth is an online clothing, accessory and decor retailer from the USA. This supa-dupa store sells not only vintage inspired items from indie designers, but also provides shoppers with one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.

We love the ecclectic feel of this shop and their huge range of dresses, tops, bottoms, shoes, bags, accessories, jacket/coats, swimwear and homewares.
We could spend hours trawling through the array of cute vintage inspired party dresses and kitch homewares. Apparently retro style queen Zooey Deschanel shops here!

Electric Garden Charging Station $24.99USD approx $24AUD
Mod Cloth Scratch 'n' Style Dress $54.99USD approx $53AUD

i want to ride my bicyclette...oui oui

Brrring brrring! With all the recent
excitement of the tour de france and the weather suddenly brightening up a bit, we are keen as mustard to get out on the bike a bit more! Except no yellow jerseys or spandex here, we prefer floral attire please.

Vintage style bicycles are all the rage at the moment. More and more girls in Australia are following in suit of their European friends, who would think nothing of fluttering around on their shiny cruiser bikes with wicker baskets full of crusty baguettes and fresh tulips.

Many local bicycle shops stock new vintage style bicycles. Or if you prefer the real thing check out gumtree or ebay for a reconditioned retro bike.

Pappilionaire Bicycles has a cool range of bikes at their store in Melbourne, and even better - they also sell their bikes online and ship throughout Australia! Oui Oui!

watch this space

Watches are an often overlooked and underrated fashion accessory. UK online store Twisted Time specialise in selling quirky and funky watches.

This great japanese style watch called the Takumi (IDEA) watch turns a graphic pixelated  computer icom image into a real stand out time piece.

Twisted Time also sells the quirky Mr Jones Watches such as the 'Cyclops'. Instead of using the traditional hour and minute hands, each hour is represented by a different coloured circle, the black hoop gradually passes over each circle to indicate the time.

Takumi (IDEA)watch £45.83GBP, $71.44AUD
Mr Jones Watch 'Cyclops' £112.50GBP, $175.37AUD

let there be light

LittleRedLantern aka Simone is a fresh jewellery designer from Sydney NSW. Simone designs necklaces, earrings and brooches that are modern, simple and clean. She specialises in laser cut modern wooden jewellery.

Each piece is laser cut out of MDF and finished with a beautiful natural beech coloured timber veneer. We think her wooden initial necklace (letter w) and wooden hot air balloon brooch are delightful.

take a picture

At the huntress we are big fans of all things retro, especially retro style photos and photography.

You could use an old school film camera like a Lomo, Holga or Diana Camera to produce quirky, funky pictures, however some people can't be bothered with all the fuss of film processing and prefer to go digital.

Give your digital photos a retro look quick and easily with this web based
Pixlr-o-matic photo editor. Its so easy and the photos look

Check out some of our experiments! 

Addicted much?
