#vintage: Dolce Douleur

Apologies for being a little MIA over the last week! I won’t bore you with the details but what I will do is tell you that I’ve had the chance to chat to a lovely lady called Dolce Douleur @_dolcedouleur_ for the next part of my #vintage Instagram series. This is an absolutely lovely read and, while it may be a little different to the layout you’re used to, it will leave you with warm feelings of times past.

Iconic hair: 1940’s Ladies

I scroll through Instagram in absolute awe at some of the hairstyles I see. The talent (and patience!) is so impressive it’s unreal. I daydream about having a beautiful, glossy set that doesn’t lose shape whilst looking completely effortless. Then I remember I’ve got about three strands of hair that frizz up at the mention of rain. Good thing I live in England then… Anyway, enough moaning! Here’s some iconic ladies styles of the 1940’s!

Vintage makeup mastery

Makeup has always been a huge part of fashion and style. Like the the pencil-thin brows of the 1930’s and the exaggerated lashes and pastel pops of the 1960’s, each decade had it’s own unique makeup looks that are easy to spot.

I did a little digging to see if the starlets of the time had any tips and tricks we could use today – lucky for us there’s plenty!

These are three of my favourites…

#1 Wish you were here…

I spend a lot of time looking at clothes. I’m the kind of magpie who adds everything they like to the cart before remembering that the rent’s due and there’s no food in the house! Unfortunately for me, this means I’m reduced to being a window shopper 99% of the time!

That being said, here’s this months wish-list… Continue Reading
