Firstly, a few weeks ago, I was interviewed by the lovely Natasha of Natasha Bailie Vintage Clothing about my life, my loves and what makes me tick. The interview went up on the 8th, so if you haven’t seen it yet, do head on over to her blog and have a read. Check out her site too, as it is crammed with some seriously divine vintage as well as an amazing new line of vintage style dresses and skirts, created by a Brighton-based designer, Miss Amy Phipps.
A few weeks ago, Helen, who runs Pinup Parade, wrote a very useful guide to Getting into Pinup Modelling, which was subsequently picked up by French blogger Loulou de Bordeaux, translated into French and posted on her blog Vespertine. In it, I am pictured alongside pinup queens Bernie Dexter, Sabina Kelley and Morgana, which humbles me rather, as I don’t consider myself to be anything close to them. But perhaps if I keep working hard at it, I will be one day!
Writer Rachael King, who is a fellow vintage fashion maven and swing dancing addict, linked to my post about the Chap Olympiad, and mentions that when she lived in London, there was nothing to go except go to raves. Raves? How dreadfully uncivilised!
Talking of the Chap Olympiad, my latest styling victim, Naomi of Vintage Secret, also wrote a blog post on our day out, complete with photos of me styling her hair. As if that wasn’t enough of me for anyone, there’s another post about me a few entries earlier, because I met VS’s lovely PR guru, Katie Antoniou at Hep Cats Holiday.
Rodellee Marie of AdoreVintage.com also mentions me in her ‘She Wears Vintage’ series, in which she says lovely things about my outfits and also posts some of my oldie-but-still-goodie modelling shots, which I’m not sure have made it onto my blog since they are from way before I started it.
Take a look, and thanks Rodellee!
Then, on Monday, my vintage hair tutorial was featured on my favourite online vintage magazine, Queens of Vintage. I expect everyone who reads this blog has seen it already, but if not, head on over!
Finally, a few more bits of modelling news. I was absolutely overjoyed to find myself on the front page of What Katie Did! The annual War and Peace Show is coming up at the end of this week and WKD always sell there, so they decided to feature the shot of me wearing their new stockings and posing in Katie’s 1942 army jeep, from our shoot a few months back. Yippee! I am going to War and Peace myself on Friday, weather permitting, so I’ll be reporting back with photos soon.
This is such an achievement for me, I can t even say. I had to capture it for posterity. And showing-off-ity.
And last, but definitely not least, an email today from the incredibly talented photographer Rebecca Parker, informed me that one of the pictures we did together is in Portuguese magazine Arte Fotográfica. Which is rather splendid, really. Here’s a picture, but click to see it bigger!
Not me! Ivory Flame!
This isn’t me either! It’s Ulorin Vex for Maya Hansen corsets
One day I will be one-tenth as awesome as those two!
That’s all from me, and indeed about me, for today!
