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.
So here’s the next installment in my #vintage series where I get to know some great Instagram guys and gals you should definitely take a peek at!
Today I’ve been speaking to Jess and Ellie from @rubywoogirls
Instagram has been such a huge part of my jump into vintage fashion. I’ve found so many lovely ladies and gents that inspire me on a daily basis. I love scrolling through my feed and seeing what everyone is up to and what they’re wearing.
It’s such a great community and everyone is always happy to chat and to give advice. I want to be part of making this community grow and spread the love 🙂
So in this series I’ll be interviewing Instagrammers I follow to see what inspires them and who they look up to. It just might help you find some new faces to follow!
Today’s lovely lady is Ashley Montgomery at @ashliabelle…
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!
I’m a bit of a hoarder when it comes to makeup and have quite a collection going. I buy everything with the intention of using it to boost my makeup in some way (whatever justifies buying it!), but I’m stuck in a total rut at the moment.
In my hunt for a new and improved look, I’ve put together a list of makeup trends across the decades to help get me inspired! I hope find it useful too!
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…
