Styling one Pretty Retro 1950s shirt waister dress four different ways.
Today, I am suffering quite badly with hayfever (love the warm weather, hate the sneeziness that comes with it), and my brain isn't firing on all cylinders. I asked The Boy what I should write about, and he told me I should write about the amazingness that is the new Legend of Zelda game. He's… Continue reading The vintage crew goes to Kew
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
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
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.

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
Four weeks into my A-Z of vintage girl in a modern world, and it’s the turn of D. That means, dresses and dancing! (Spoiler alert, I have much more experience in one than the other). Let’s start with my particular expertise. If I was on Mastermind, my specialist subject would probably be reproduction vintage dresses,… Continue reading D is for Dancing and Dresses – the A to Z of a vintage girl in a modern world
This week, something very exciting happened (not quite as exciting as The Boy proposing, or that time I found a solid chocolate KitKat, but very exciting nonetheless). I was included in a feature for Woman's Own, one of the UK's leading women's weekly magazines. As regular readers of this blog will know, I entered Miss… Continue reading Why I love 1950s fashion – 28 weeks to go
