This is my everyday look, not a costume just for photos.

 "I don't see vintage as a trend; it's style with no end!"

It is not surprising therefore that the 30s, 40s, and 50s vintage styles have made such a huge come-back in recent years. Seeing a return of natural curves, natural women and fun and elegant fashions is a true delight to women and men alike, and I am excited.
Since I was a child I have adored the style of the women of the golden age of Hollywood and of the showgirls of Europe. I loved escaping into the elegance of film stars such as Liz Taylor, Betty Grable, Rita Hayworth, and Jean Harlow, when I saw them I knew at least a part of who I was going to be when I was a 'big girl'.
Spring is coming 2012

Summer 2011
I began collecting clothing from the 1920's- 1950's. Mere collecting took hold of me, and I quickly found myself learning the details of dressing vintage, and proceeded to dress in the style daily. I learned women were immaculately dressed from head to toe. I loved how marvelous the elegant foundations were. Girdles, garter belts, corsets, and nylon full fashioned stockings, danced in my head!
An authentic vintage style is of course not complete without vintage style make-up and hair.
Make-up & hair

This is my everyday look, not a costume just for photos. I feel out of place in jeans and a T-shirt and love the feeling of vintage silk over any other sensation in the whole wide world. Most of my authentic vintage pieces comes from vintage stores. I wear what I wear because it suits me and makes me feel good about myself. The thing that makes me happiest is scouring flea markets, vintage stores and garage sales for the perfect pieces to add to my wardrobe.

Autumn 2011
It isn't everyday I get in front of a camera and make aim to strut my stuff. It's not a photo everyday; it's a collection of spontaneous pictures.

How did you get into vintage dear ladies? Is this a look you do every day or for special occasions?
Let me know.

Dress for what your figure is, not for what you want it to be. I’ve always had a fascination with customs and styles that have gone out of fashion. I love wearing the history. I aspire to look soft, romantic and nostalgic.

  1. Osecam da bi se ti zaljubila u album moje bake iz 1930/35 :)
    Fasciniraju me tadasnje zene jer su s' minimumom materijala i s' puno ideja uspevale da izgledaju kao filmske glumice ;)

  2. Apsolutno prelepo, neverovatno koliko se meni ovo sviđa.

  3. Shucks you are gorgeous, I have to agree I feel odd wearing tshirt and jeans, sometimes I will wear tshirts but I much prefer dresses that flatter my hourglass shape. I used to be a bit of a goth/punk rocker so I have always gone for style that isn't mainstream, but then I started getting into vintage when I was 15 and it has just snowballed from there! You have so many beautiful pieces, love seeing your ensembles! xxx

  4. Your looks are absolutely stunning-i love the way your dress and it matches perfectely with your Make Up-That`s what makes you different from other women who loves vintage style-most of them just do the make up proper but dare to dress vintage and complete the look properly.
    I would love to know where to buy vintage clothes and style myself more often vintage because i`ve fallen for this style a long time ago. ;)

  5. Ti si stvarno vrijedna divljenja! I hvala što si ovo podijelila s nama! Bio je pravi užitak gledati ove fotografije!

  9. I just can't get over how gorgeous you are! Your makeup is perfection. And your clothes!!!!!!

    I got into vintage when I was 12 or so. I went to Catholic school and had to wear a uniform, so I had no concept of what was in or popular because I wore the same thing every day. I loved the look of pin-ups and I wanted to be one of them. And that's my story! lol

  29. goodness breath taking photos u have an amazing collection of vintage, im so jealous. really really beautiful clothes, u and your love look so happy together and he looks very proud. I have always loved old classic movies from a very young age i adored marilyn, rita hayworth, ava gardner, jean harlow, to name but a few and loved evertyhing about the old movies from the clothes to hair make up and even all the sets were just so stylish. i try really hard to wear vintage most days but sometimes if im having a very fat day i just cant fit into anything. Im not a jeans and tshirt girl myself i feel awful in them and feel that i look awful too so I much prefere the vintage look, kisses from dublin xxxx leonie

  30. prekrasno! gdje nades tutoriale za frizure? sve na youtube? ja jako volim taj stil !

  31. Nemam riječi koje bi najbolje opisale kako se osjećam nakon gledanja ovog posta... :O Breathtaking, možda.. :)

    Ne znam samo gdje je gumbić za postati sljedbenik. Uglavnom je u lijevom gornjem kutu, no sada ga nema. :/

    Prelijepa si..

  32. I just found your blog and I am so thrilled. I love everything about it. You are one of the most gorgeous women that I have ever seen. Everything about you is beautiful. I love your makeup and your vast array of vintage clothing. Ahh you're just so stunning!

  33. My everyday style too. I am wearing only skirts / dresses for years now, and I always hated jeans and pants. I love fashions from the middle age to 1960, and I love to mix all of them.

    But for my job I have to wear something more "soft", because my boss doesn't like this style...

  34. Just discovered you, so glad I did. Great Blog, Great Style.


  35. I think it's great you have people who dress just the way you do, i'm the only one being vintage here in my town and people look weird at me, but yeah, pin up is just really what i love: women who actually dress up and do their hair and makeup properly instead of what they call "women" these days.
    Not trying to be offensive, some girls are just... more like boys in the way they act.

  36. What would happen to me if one day, while walking outside, I cross your way ?
    No one knows..

    Kisses from France, and please, continue shining as you are doing daily !

  37. I love vintage style and often wear reall vintage but I love mix it and sometime wear vintage and modern things which look like vintage. I followed you and hope you follow me back)

  38. everything is breathtaking ... accept those tatooed eyebrowes ... they make you so unnatural ... they ruin everything - it is a pitty for such beautyful young girl :(

  39. I love vintage styles, the 40s and 50s in particular. I wish I could wear it more often in everyday life

  40. I reckon, the castling has been already performed!

  41. Hi! Much like yourself, I too have always admired the styles and trends of the 1930s-1960s. I love the class, the elegance, and the modesty of it! Recently I decided to step out of my normal "mom attire" and back into my vintage items, it just for special occasions, for everyday wear! Like you said, it is such a wonderful feeling to wear something so elegant. Makes you stand a little taller, act a little more proper. Thank you for the photos and the blog to show it can be done every day! ☺️ (I wish I could attach a photo, but I can not seem to figure it out!)
