5 3 08

I truly love people who opt for vintage clothing instead of modern high street attire; I myself am a massive fan of it also and have many many items in my wardrobe from various vintage stores all over London.

I would love to dress in head-to-toe vintage every day, but it does take a lot of time trawling through racks and heaps of clothing to find a single gem; let alone enough to put a whole outfit together. Plus, on top of that there are little details like shoes (I am a size 7 and find it incredibly frustrating that all the shoes I fall in love with end up being a size 3!) and hairstyle. I know nothing about hair styling, but would love to learn more. I have finally managed to get the hang of curls thanks to my curling iron (and a bit of help from my mum to do the back!) but the girl who works in Beyond Retro had an amazing 50s hairstyle when I went last, and I wish I had taken a photograph for reference, it was like one big pompadour roll coming from the crown to the front like a fringe. It was very impressive, and I imagine took a lot of hairspray!
So I have made a vow to myself to take more time getting ready and put more thought into an entire ‘look’. Although I’m not sure how long this pledge will last!
