Why I’m Not A Vintage Style BloggerPosted: December 1, 2021
Despite my love for vintage fashion (especially 1940s style), I’ve never called myself a vintage style blogger, mostly because I don’t dress exclusively in vintage style, and because my outfits are far from authentic. I’m not talking about authentic pieces – I mean, if I had an authentic 1940s piece, I would wrap it up in tissue paper and put it away, not wear it! – but rather the whole look. I can achieve the authentic silhouette easily enough, but my hair and makeup can never be up to spec. I don’t care about makeup much, but I’d love to be able to try some simple 1940s hairstyle to elevate my outfits. Unfortunately, my hair is so straight and thin that it refuses to be styled in any way other than “away from face and neck” (seriously, neither bobby pin or hairspray sticks to my hair – even the headscarf look on Monday took me a while, because the scarf kept slipping off), so in the end, I just don’t bother. Ain’t nobody got time for that! I guess I just prefer to keep my hair and makeup minimalistic so my outfits could be more versatile.
