QUOTES:


I grew up watching old movies, and I always wanted to dress that way. I now have the competence and the collection to do it, and I have been dressing vintage everyday since 2017.

Marilyn had a glamorous style, but she also had a glamorous everyday style. Even if I don't feel like wearing a dress, I can put on some trousers and still make it look vintage.

I never thought I would be doing social media as a job. It just happened. It's been so much fun, and I'm so thankful and honored to have such amazing fans. I see them as my family.

Yes, I collect vintage makeup! The packaging from the 1950s was just so pretty. It seems so magical, and I'm just hooked on it.

When I started dressing vintage, I was scared to put on something that old. If it was in such good condition, I didn't want to be the one that ruined it after all those years.

I started with my modern clothes and wore them more in a vintage way. I went with high-waisted trousers or a pencil skirt and paired them with cute little tops or classy blouses.

It's been difficult to find anything truly vintage in maternity wear that is also stylish. I've adapted by going to modern stores and finding dresses that have a vintage shape.
