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

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

For the first time ever, this post is on a Monday, not a Sunday. But, I’m hoping that as it’s a bank holiday Monday, you’ll let me off. I was at a friend’s wedding, you see, and while it was absolutely spectacular (more to come in a future post), I had naff all signal. We… Continue reading I is for Inspiration: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

H is for Hair Flowers & Happy Times: The A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

I am properly obsessed with hair flowers. I love them - they're a mega-easy way to accessorise an outfit, and can even bring a bit of summer sunshine to a dreary, drizzly November morning. Such is my obsession that when I went for my first job interview at where I now work, a friend whose… Continue reading H is for Hair Flowers & Happy Times: The A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

F is for Friends: A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world

I would like to start this post with a heartfelt apology. I work with lots of lovely people, who are wonderfully supportive of this blog, and the things I do in my spare time. One of them even helpfully brainstormed potential topics for the letter 'E' last week, including elegance. While it wasn't my intention,… Continue reading F is for Friends: A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world

E is for elegance: The A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world

This week, I struggled to think of topics beginning with 'E' for my A-Z. The Boy and I had a bit of brainstorm walking to the cinema last night, quickly deciding that 'elegance' was the way to go. For fun, here's a selection of other ideas: Exercise - because I've been doing a bit (and… Continue reading E is for elegance: The A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world

D is for Dancing and Dresses – the A to 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

C is for Cahoots and Car Boots – the A to Z of a vintage girl in a modern world

This weekend, several rather exciting things have happened. On Friday, I saw some lovely chums who I haven't seen since I left my job, and had the most amazing ribs (if you're near to Hitchin, I'd definitely recommend them, and the restaurant they come from, Hermitage Road). As I left, one of the waitresses told… Continue reading C is for Cahoots and Car Boots – the A to Z of a vintage girl in a modern world
