Another week and another lovely Instagram gal I had the pleasure of interviewing. Warm welcomes all round for Alexandra at @fortiesandfreckles
I don’t know about you, but I always find footwear the hardest part of vintage dressing. My UK size 8/US size 10.5 feet are fairly big by today’s standards and were quite literally non-existent during the mid-century. This means that true vintage is off-limits. Combine this with being a veggie (although I don’t mind giving second-hand leather a home) and finding shoes becomes an absolute nightmare!
Winter is fast approaching and my flimsy little flats aren’t really going to cut it in the cold and wet weather. So I’ve been doing my research and have put together a little mood-board of ideas to help me find exactly what I’m looking for.
For today’s #vintage I’ve been speaking to the very lovely and very smiley Hannah Jackson from @nooneknows_itsyou_missjackson
Winter is right around the corner and that means one thing – knitwear.
I’ve put together a mood-board of popular knitwear styles from around the 1950’s to help get you inspired. If you’re looking for something that’ll keep you warm without losing your vintage style then this post should be right up your street.
Today’s #vintage is from the lovely Serenity (although you may know her as Miss Rosie Cheeks) from @missrosiecheekstx
