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

N is for (Vintage) Nails: The A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Happy Sunday, one and all! Today, as we've reached 'N' in my alphabet, I thought I'd talk about vintage nails (although the character The Boy came up with while I was brainstorming topics, Nellie Nimbleson, sounded pretty darn interesting, so I may revisit her at a later date. Her favourite band is Nine Inch Nails,… Continue reading N is for (Vintage) Nails: The A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

K is for Keeping it Classy: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

I'm writing this the day after The Boy has left for a work trip, which makes me sad (partly because I promised to sort out the spare room while he was away, and I'm three hours in and still only about halfway through). I'm also writing this in the same room as what I  believe… Continue reading K is for Keeping it Classy: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

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

Happy Sunday, one and all! I'd like to start with two very, very exciting pieces of news. The first is that my second guest post, a condensed version of this very A-Z, is now live on the fabulous Pin Up Persuasion blog. I'm so, so grateful to Jessica for the opportunity, and once you've read… Continue reading J is for Jewellery: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World
