Review: Dolly & Dotty Veronica dress

Long-time readers of the blog may remember my review of the Dolly & Dotty May dress (which, coincidentally, I reviewed in May last year). I loved the dress, so when the nice team at Dolly & Dotty asked me if I'd like to review something else, I jumped at the chance. The Veronica is a… Continue reading Review: Dolly & Dotty Veronica dress

V is for Vintage: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

So, after an accidental and impromptu two-week holiday (time just got away from me!), I'm back and ready for the last few weeks of my A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world. And of course, there's only one thing I could talk about this week, and that's vintage! You may remember my post… Continue reading V is for Vintage: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

U is for Under Garments: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Underwear, undergarments, foundation wear, that uncomfortable stuff under your outfit...call it what you will, it can be a pretty important part of dressing vintage. It doesn't have to be, of course, but for me, wearing something vintage-inspired underneath my dresses makes my outfits feel a little bit more special. In the run up to our… Continue reading U is for Under Garments: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

T is for Twinwood Festival: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Ah, T - stands for Toblerone, tolerance, tenacity - lots of awesome words. But perhaps my most favourite of all, Twinwood Festival! A long-standing date in many a vintage-lover's calendar, I've been going to for the last eight years. Long-time readers will remember me talking about Twinwood Festival in the past (if you're new to the… Continue reading T is for Twinwood Festival: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

S is for Stories: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

An avid people watcher (and I mean, really avid – I do it while we’re walking around the supermarket, it drives The Boy mad), I love making up stories about people I see going about their day-to-day lives. They’re probably doing something pretty mundane (especially if they’re in the supermarket), but in my head, they’re… Continue reading S is for Stories: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

R is for Vintage Reproduction Brands: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

As a vintage-loving girl with a waist that's really rather a lot larger than ladies from the 1940s and 1950s, reproduction vintage clothing is a somewhat vital addition to my wardrobe. Luckily for me, there are lots of fabulous repro brands around. These - in no particular order - are my favourites: The House of… Continue reading R is for Vintage Reproduction Brands: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Q is for the Queen: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Happy Sunday folks! I'm writing this from my garden - I'm actually sitting outside, instead of being cooped up indoors and wondering whether it's going to be a light drizzle or torrential downpour outside. This makes me very happy indeed! (And of course, I'm keeping a close eye on that big grey cloud that's coming… Continue reading Q is for the Queen: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World
