How To Incorporate A Touch Of Vintage Glamour In Your Everyday Life.

Hello darlings! Today I thought I would tell you a few ways in which you can incorporate a little touch a vintage glamour in to your everyday life. If you are not as obsessed with vintage as I am, doing the whole look may seem a bit intimidating, but a few bits here and there can add a lovely, elegant touch and make you feel fantastic.

Hair And Makeup

I pretty much only wear a vintage inspired makeup look on a daily basis and I have done for years. I always wear a red lip and a lot of the time I will do a winged liner. This immediately makes your makeup have a retro feel and it is so simple to do, even if you just wear the red lip! If you are nervous about wearing a bright red lip, try a more subtle, berry colour!

For hair, I normally wear it curled. If I am going out or if I feel like doing a full-glam look, I’ll do a full vintage up-do or wave. I can be a bit lazy when it comes to doing victory rolls, so most days I do “faux” rolls or bumps. Here is a link to a fantastic video by the gorgeous Cherry Doll face, showing you how to do a lovely every day look. I interviewed Cherry a little while back and she is the sweetest woman ever and has amazing hair and makeup skills!

I am constantly asked “Oh, are you going out somewhere nice?” because I am permanently dressing up. I do not need an occasion to get dolled up and it makes me giggle when people think I am going out for dinner or to a party. Nope, Im just celebrating life! Style is such a personal thing and I am not going to tell you what to wear exactly because what you feel comfortable in is so personal! But, I genuinely think every one suits the vintage look. It is flattering on all shapes and sizes and it looks effortlessly glamorous.

My wardrobe consists mostly of dresses in the tea dress/flared style because personally that is what I like. Unless I am wearing my boyfriends clothes, I would not be caught dead out in joggers, the thought makes me shudder… i just can’t. I believe that every vintage lover needs a good coat however genuine 40s/50s vintage coats can be hard to come buy. You can throw it on over literally anything and look dressed up! My favourite places to buy coats are Collectif, Hell Bunny and Banned. If you do not want to fork out for a vintage reproduction, try and go for a coat that is fitted at the waist and flares out. A black Mac is always a good shout also!

Here is another video that shows you a few staples you can put in your wardrobe to create a glamorous vintage look  and how to shop vintage when on a budget, by the lovely Karolina Zebrowska.

This is the quickest and cheapest way you can add little touches of vintage glamour. Gorgeous tea cups, silver wear, glasses and furniture can be found in most thrift stores, charity shops and even online! They look far more expensive than they actually are and can easily be upholstered to look brand new. Plus, it is quite a novelty to drink from a cute little teacup and guests absolutely love it!

Buy Your Beauty Mark- By Dita Von Teese

This book is absolutely amazing and was written by Burlesque and Vintage Queen Dita Von Teese. I call it my bible because it contains everything you need to know about eccentric glamour. Also, it is just a feel good book and you will feel amazing about yourself after reading it. I can not recommend it highly enough and I genuinely believe all women need this book, even if they are not in to the vintage lifestyle. This book took Dita 5 years to write and she absolutely perfected it. I love it.

These are all of my little tips for now, but let me know if you would like more posts about vintage glamour, beauty and lifestyle! See you next time! xox
