This is the best thing in my life right now

That may be a bit of a dramatic statement considering it’s never going to love me back, like a friend or even maybe a small dog. I do know that every time I watch this it makes my heart fill with the kind of happiness that comes with wearing a really excellent vintage outfit and not giving a damn about what anyone else thinks. Because in my head, I look awesome, and that is all that matters. Why do we not have more women like this in fashion? We need people to promote the idea that dressing is a personal choice and pleasure, not a chore, not an obligation, and certainly not something to get upset over.  Ladies, choose your own style and wear it with pride. As these Grandes Dames demonstrate, your confidence will shine through. Don’t let someone ‘yuck your yum’. These women have grown fashion balls of steel and I love them for it.

This is a taster of a documentary that comes out this year (some reports say spring, others summer) by Ari Cohen and Lithuanin born video maker  Lina Plioplyte.

I’ve been following these ladyies for a while now. They are very inspiring. Not sure how well it’d go down in my little town of Chorley but in the big city … anything goes :))

If anyone gets a sniff of a screening in the UK please share the news asap. Be great for the vintage fashpack to go see en masse.
