About me

Industry Fashion
Occupation Stylist and Vintage Hair Stylist
Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction Bonjour, and welcome to my dainty blog!

I hope you will like what I have to show you. I love all things vintage and glamorous. I love the lifestyle, music and fashions of the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s. Well, some 60s too. I do however appreciate all things stylish and not just the people and designs of my chosen decades. Every detail makes the person/ garment/ object!

I will mostly be writing about all the things I love, stumble across and just have to tell the world and my styling projects. Oh, how can I forget fooood! I love to bake. I style for photographers, fashion brands and also as a personal stylist. I am also an occasional self styled Vintage Pin-Up model. I would love to hear from you if you like what I do.

True style never goes out of fashion!
