Hello lovely people! It’s been a while. Over two years since my last post, blimey. How have you been? We’ve got lots to catch up on (I’ve just had my first Christmas with a toddler and a newborn, which was not-even-organised chaos), and I’m hoping to blog more in the new year. My loves However,… Continue reading Face of Le Keux 2023

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
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.

We parked… Continue reading Review: Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, Cambridge

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

Let's start with me sitting here, second guessing my title. Can a blog be old-fashioned? I mean, I can pepper it with 'pip pip', 'tally-ho' and the like, but it's on a computer, and they're not really that old-fashioned. Well, some are. That laptop I took to uni and still have kicking around somewhere despite… Continue reading Introducing the all-new, old-fashioned blog
