I adore getting creative with clothing. If I was skinny, I would be one hot dresser but it has come to my attention over the years that pre-1998 no-one appeared to be overweight and they certainly weren't six feet tall. Nothing vintage fits me. I'm lucky to get a roomy Sussan XL to fit me right now, but that's another story.
I initially wanted this post to be about gorgeous vintage clothes and the girls that become them, but I noticed something odd when deciding who to feature. The poses. All the gals who do the vintage look, well, they do the same poses as well. Are the poses vintage too?
What happens is that all these wonderfully quirky individuals end up looking a lot like each other. Somewhere along the way, whatever makes them 'different' makes them exactly the same. And, really, what is it with the 'little girl lost' poses? Does wearing vintage also mean you have to regress back in time yourself? The women I'm featuring here, and the stunning clothes they wear, are all marvellous, absolutely marvellous. And yet...
I'm not sure what to do with it.

Do you like a vintage fash blog too?
Are you partial to a leg cross? A pigeon-toe? A twirl?
