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

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

Ok, I admit it - this week's blog is basically just a reason for me to talk about our wedding again, because I loved it quite a lot. New readers - this blog started out as a wedding countdown, so if you fancy reading the ramblings of a relatively stressed out bride (with what I… Continue reading W is for Wedding: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

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

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

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

M is for Most Marvellous Meet Ups: The A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Blimey, we're halfway through my A-Z of being a vintage girl in a modern world. How did that happen? It feels like I only started it 5 minutes ago. And I'd like to commemorate the fact we're halfway through with a very special blog post, talking about Most Marvellous Meet Ups. Regular readers will remember me… Continue reading M is for Most Marvellous Meet Ups: The A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

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

A girl can never have too many lipsticks. Especially when she's a vintage-loving girl with a passion for the 1940s and 1950s, when they loved a bold lip. While red was almost everyone's favourite colour during the 1940s (I'm reliably informed), in the 1950s, pinks, corals, and all manner of other lovely shades were becoming… Continue reading L is for Lipstick: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World
