I do love vintage style: anything from the seventies all the way back to the 1920s/1930s does it for me. I love browsing second-hand shops, vintage fairs and jumble sales in search of an elusive piece from any of these period.
However while I don’t have the confidence to dress in a certain period I am a big fan of those bloggers (and Instagrammers) who make vintage style part of their everyday life. Here are a few that I follow:
I’ve mentioned this blog before here in a post on second-hand style bloggers but have to repeat my admiration for this blog. Norwegian blogger, Ulrika, has the most beautiful 1940s/1950s style. I love everything she wears (although her burlesque costumes are slightly more revealing than I would personally wear!). I also like the fact that she dresses beautifully – even in the freezing Norwegian winters.
I’m still quite new to Sarah’s blog but if you like 1960s fashion this is the one for you. I like the images she posts of her outfits, as well as her informative pieces about clothing styles and fashion icons.
I also follow Emma on Instagram here as she posts some gorgeous pics of her 1940s outfits. Along with her friend Lara (that40sgal on Instagram here) they dress in impeccable forties style and both volunteer at 1940s events including the Forties Experience living history museum.
If you want to follow a blogger who lives a vintage life then I can recommend Michelle’s blog, which shares her family life, love of sewing and baking (her weekend tea time posts on Instagram are just so cosy!). She shares family experiences including trips to country houses, 1940s themed gatherings and homeschooling her children.
Finally, although she doesn’t write a blog, I am a huge fan (bordering on the obsessive) of the fashion historian, Amber Butchart, who dresses in the most amazing style. Bright colours and turbans are her trademark. You may have heard her on Radio 4 or seen her recent TV series, ‘A Stitch in Time’, where she worked with experts to recreate period clothing.
Are there any vintage style bloggers or Instagrammers that you follow?
