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 coming. My wardrobe is definitely not ready. Here’s my first winter wish-list!
Lucille Désirée Ball was born 6th August 1911 in Jamestown, New York. After her father’s unfortunate passing at only 27 years old, 4 year old Lucille, along with her mother Désirée and brother Fred, up sticks and moved to live with her grandparents.
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
Autumn is fast approaching, there’s new stock is in the shops and payday can’t come round soon enough! Here’s my spook-free wish-list for October.
So it’s chucking it down outside and I’m sat here in a jumper, what’s more appropriate to write about at a time like this than vintage swimwear?…
