I'm sure that most of you don't realize, that in my head I live in an English country house back in 1932. Where people wore particular clothes for particular activities and in the evening white tie. That's the life for me.

Happy Birthday Cole!
You are a man like no other and the best husband a girl could ask for. Thank you for being my rock, supporting my passions and making this blog possible with your amazing photography. This is the tenth birthday we've celebrated together, here's wishing for ninety more!

Love always,
Maria Sig

Happy Birthday to your husband! :)

And I agree about the dressing for certain occasions and then white tie in the evening. People just don't make that effort any more.

I also mourn the decline of a RP (Queen's English) accents. Too many people can't be bothered to speak eloquently these days it seems.

Also - the costumes in Gosford Park? To die for.

Oh my gosh! Maria, seriously lets go duck hunting together! I love this, it reminds me of what I wore yesterday, but your interpretation is like a gazillion times more awesome!

You seriously just stole my heart...and just when I thought you couldnt get any cooler, then this post pops up. Unreal. Happy birthday to your husband!! So cute. You look amazing!

Happy Birthday Cole, you do a tremendous job with the photography, it really is amazing.

I love the first, the tones of the background complement the outfit so much. I love your expression, a bit like Huck Finn ... lol. The last photo of you is gorgeous.

Ahh Gosford Park, I know what you mean, what a romantic, stylish era. Love it.

Lovely pictures. Happy birthday to your hubby, who takes such great photos for your blog.

I live in other time periods in my head as well....If I lived somewhere nature-y and not in new york city, I'd be taking photos in locations like this. Alas, I'm stuck with asphalt.
I am crazy about those boots.
And what a sweet birthday message to your hubby!!

Beautiful photos as always! Happy birthday to your hubby.

bestie  – (March 25, 2010 at 3:23 AM)  

Maria, you are looking gorgeous as ever. I would've loved to live in that era, too. (:

You hubby looks so darling, it's nice to see the face behind all the breathtaking photos. Happy Birthday to him!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLEEEEEE!! And thank you for taking always care of our delicious Maria!! *Sings happy b-day to you*

I'm sure that in 1932 you would looked lovely in that clothes, Maria, but I'm really happy that you live now here, because we all can read you nowadays :D!!

<3 XOXO,

Gosford Park is one of my favourite films and I, also, live in a big country pile in the early 30s in my head. The husband refuses to play butler which is most selfish of him.

Happy birthday to Cole - long may his photographic eye continue to focus!

Manja  – (March 25, 2010 at 3:48 AM)  

I love the way you folded up the sleeves of the chambray shirt. It's a tiny details but serves as a great accessory, methinks. You can really pull all those looks off :)

avalonne  – (March 25, 2010 at 5:26 AM)  

Aww HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR HUSBAND! I hope he had a great birthday! I love this outfit, you definitely look like some adventurer from the 1930s. I would know, I went to boarding school in the English countryside. You remind me of Nicole Kidman in Australia a little bit :) You look fantastic. Can't believe the jacket is from Forever 21! :)

Well a very happy birthday to Cole and it looks like you had a wonderful time together in the woods. I love these shots of you, especially the last one.

Happy birthday to your husband!

These photos are great, especially the first one. You look like a British explorer stepping out of a jungle. "I have seen.. things"

Rose  – (March 25, 2010 at 6:38 AM)  

You look ready to go exploring in this outfit, I really like it on you.
Hope your hubby had a lovely birthday.


BaronessVonVintage  – (March 25, 2010 at 9:12 AM)  

You're speakin' my language, doll! I'm a 30s gal ALL the way, too. LOVE your country manor house tweeds. Very appropriate for a vigorous spirited lady to wear for a day of mashing about the country side. xoxo. Happy birthday to Cole! (my birthday was yesterday....YAY Aries!)

Mel  – (March 25, 2010 at 9:16 AM)  

Oh my gosh I love this outfit so much Maria! I think I say that all the time but I'm seriously not kidding! I'm glad I'm not the only one living in an English country my mind. Haha you look like you're trekking through the wilderness, or even on a fox hunt :) Happy birthday to Cole, you two are so sweet!

Lexie  – (March 25, 2010 at 10:30 AM)

happy birthday to your hubby!

Alix  – (March 25, 2010 at 10:49 AM)  

Happy Birthday to Cole!! he is surely a lucky man. And as for you and your dreams of an English country side in 1932, I'd be glad to accompany you in a time machine!

LoveCharlesVintage  – (March 25, 2010 at 11:21 AM)  

I just love that vest! You look fantastic.

1932 England would suit me just fine! I love everything about this! And now I need to actually watch Gosford Park, I've only ever seen the first 10 mins. of it. I hear the costumes are to die for!

Maria, especially loved the Gosford Park photos. And a very Happy Birthday to Cole, a great photographer, and I'm sure a great husband to you!

Vanessa  – (March 26, 2010 at 7:11 AM)  

"I'm sure that most of you don't realize, that in my head I live in an English country house back in 1932." I dont' think anyone has summed up my dream so completely. Happy Birthday to Cole!!! I hope your party goes well.

I am in love with those boots. So simple - you wear them so well!

Crystal Ball  – (March 27, 2010 at 9:16 PM)  

That last photograph of you is to die for! And what an incredible outfit. I love how you always look like you have transported to some other time.

And happy belated birthday to your hubby!
