Vintage Treats on Ebay

These delectable vintage treats have hit our Ebay Store this week! Time is a ticking, so if you’ve always had your eye on one of these beauties now is your chance.

The Betty Dress (left) is the perfect little number for any aspiring Madmen housewife! And we must stress the skirt swishes ever so delightfully! The Artist Dress (middle) creates a beautiful silhouette, all nipped in waist and a-line skirt. It’s perfect for the artistically inclined lady, who wants to wear their art on their sleeve (excuse the pun, couldn’t resist). The Fuchsia Fuss Power Blouse (right) is an 80’s wonder. Perfect for colour blocking or teaming with skinnies and brogues to creating some androgynous style.

Happy Bidding :)  Oh and we’re launching a new blog feature tomorrow, yippee! Stay fresh, Jazzites!

Gin & Grapefruit

Are you as bored as us of this winter? There is only so long you can swan about in fur *ahem* faux fur and delicate gloves before you have to reach for the ugly fleece and wellies to keep warm and dry. Has your detox fallen by the wayside? Do you hate mondays with a vengeance? Well when you get home, cheer yourself up with The Jazz’s delectable Gin & Grapefruit Punch (which we mentioned here). It is has quickly become one of our favourite homemade punches….

Serves 8. In a large glass bowl mix:

  • 1/2 a thinly sliced pink grapefruit
  • 1/2 a thinly sliced orange or lemon, or both if you have them
  • 350ml London Dry Gin (Any brand)
  • Dash of Peach Schnapps (Any brand)
  • 2 dashes of Lemonade
  • 1 carton of cloudy apple juice
  • 1/2 carton of grapefruit juice
  • 1 tsp of sugar

Enjoy! Drink responsibly, and kids do not do a Betty (above) and drown your sorrows in excess. The Jazz sincerely hope your first proper week back to school, college, uni or work is not to stressful. Let us know if you sassy thangs have a favourite homemade punch or cocktail….

ps. There are scary rumours flying about that maybe HBO don’t want to commission a 5th series of Mad Men, let’s all hope, wish and pray that ain’t true.
