Show Us Your Blog Feature: Dial V For Vintage

Saturday, December 11, 2010

Thank you to everyone who participated in my link up on the Show Us Your Blog post. We now have 73 fabulous blogs to enjoy. As promised, I used a random number generator to select one blog to feature on Va-Voom Vintage. The chosen blog is Dial V for Vintage.

 In just 4 short months of blogging, Dial V For Vintage has almost 100 subscribers. This vintage-loving lady is a girl after my own heart, with great movie reviews, DIY tips, thrift store finds and a big punch of personal style. Dial V For Vintage is such an inspirational read.

I really love that she mixes vintage with modern to achieve her unique and classic look. I know that a lot of people feel that wearing vintage can look too theatrical so it's refreshing to see a girl that really makes "vintage" her own.

Q:What do you love most about vintage fashion?
A: I think the main reason why I love vintage fashion is because of the originality: you'll rarely see someone else wearing the same vintage outfit. Therefore, it allows you to express yourself in a unique way and to be very creative with your outfits. I'm also attracted to vintage/second hand clothes because they're ecologically friendly, I think it's very important to recycle (or repair) clothes that deserve a 'new life'.

Q: Who is your biggest style inspiration?
A:I don't really have a specific 'fashion icon', I would rather say that my style inspiration comes from different things. Most of all, I'm influenced and inspired by movies: film noir, elegant old Hollywood movies, old horror movies, costume/historic movies, Hitchcock-suspense, 50ies movies... I also get a lot of inspiration from other bloggers and different subcultures.
Q: I can tell from your blog that you're a nail polish addict. Do you have a favorite brand or color at the moment?
A: I'm a big fan of Essie nail polish! I love their variety of colours, the formula, the quality... But my favorite colour at the moment would be 'Red Carpet' by Sally Hansen: red sparkles, perfect for Christmas!

 Go ahead and Dial V For Vintage!
