Outfit Post- Why I love reproduction Vintage!

I promised you an outfit post in my new grey 1940s style trousers from Heyday! Here they are. I love them! So comfortable and easy to wash and wear.
Teamed, as always with my vintage style cropped red cardi and hair flower!

It's so easy to create a vintage inspired wardrobe. I love being able to express myself in 1940s/1950s fashions without having had to scour the globe for original (and often ill fitting) garments and so I applaud those like Heyday! , Tara Starlet, Able Grable, Puttin' On The Ritz to name but a few, who make it easy for the rest of us to find vintage reproduction which looks good and fits well. It's also why I have chosen Vintage Chic as a collection tab for many of my dresses, I want to make it easy for women to find the 'look' without having to procure an original piece.

I dress in a vintage inspired way as it enables an outward expression of my inward belief systems; that woman of those era's knew how to look gorgeous and that many understood and inhabited positions of ethics and morality which have sadly almost completely slipped from our day. If you believe 'You are what you wear' then I am all about family values, Community spirit, hard work and perseverance! Oh, and of course encouraging all women everywhere to look and be gorgeous, inside and out!

What does your style say about you?

I can't wait to order my very own pair of those trousers next week. I'm not sure what my style would say, I love vintage, I love repro, I love homemade. I'm a decade chameleon from 40s to 70s and I think it would probably just demonstrate my indecisive nature.
