Y is for (Say) Yes!: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Happy Sunday y'all! (Hmm. I've never typed 'y'all' before. Not sure I successfully pull it off.) So, it's the penultimate week of my A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world, and I wanted to take some time to talk about being positive and saying 'Yes!' to things, even when they're terrifying. I know that… Continue reading Y is for (Say) Yes!: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

X is for eXciting news!: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

This week's blog comes to you from my comfy sofa, where I'm under a duvet with Agent Carter on in the background (side note: I want ALL the costumes. All of them. If someone can point me in the direction of someone who can recreate them, I'd be ever so grateful). Especially this dress: I've… Continue reading X is for eXciting news!: 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

O is for Old Hollywood Heroes: The A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

So, the weather cannot decide what it's doing today. Is it sunny and lovely? Is it cloudy and humid? Or perhaps a spot of rain? I have two windows in my living room - from one, I can see a very ominous looking set of black clouds. From the other, I can see nothing but… Continue reading O is for Old Hollywood Heroes: The A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World
