    I loved the article about the R1 shoes. I love going into secondhand shops when we visit small towns - you never know what you'll find.

  3. I found the article "pretty 24-7"
    with Shannon Smith interesting. Always nice to get some tips from people who know what they're talking about:)

  4. Already followed both of you, so that was easy. Had already read the mag too - hopefully I get extra points for that ;) Really liked the piece about vintage stuff for your home - especially relevant to me as I'm busy kitting mine out. So - pick me! Pick me! I lust that broach ;)

  5. Oh swoon!
    That vintage shopper is too much :D

    I am a follower of BeingBrazen and she is the one who introduced me to Vintage Lifestyle.

    I loved the photoshoot that started on page 16. It had a beautiful quote: "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower" by Albert Camus.
    The the 'record' hat & antique umbrella are gorgeous... and who doesn't dream of a couch outside under the trees?

    Well done to the Vintage Lifestyle team -- a really great read!

The Vintage plantation also provided great vacation ideas!!

  41. I am deeply in love with vintage that's why I was so glad when I discovered Vintage Lifestyle Mag. I enjoyed reading the article they did with Pretty 24-7's Shannon Smith. It is true what she said.That beauty isn't just about looks--it's the way we live our lives. Same thing when it comes to wearing vintage stuff, it's not just about looking fab or the designs, it's recycling something precious and helping the environment and wearing something that has been a witness to other eras. I also enjoyed the article 5 Steps to an Easy Vintage Look, because not everybody knows how to rock a classic look. I must admit, that I used to think that it should be worn from head to toe. I love the articles, short stories and pictures of vintage stuff. The mag is just so inspiring. Keep up the awesome work Nicole Warr and team! X

  42. Hi Brazen Darling,

    Hope you're having a Fantastic Friday! I loved the Cafe Chronicles - probably because I'm a pretty sundress-wearing, chill on a sidewalk cafe in the sun with a friend and a cappuccino kinda girl!
    Enjoy the weekend

  78. Hi! I just followed your blog today. And I found the Vintage Lifestyle magazine really good. I've always been a fan of Drew Barrymore and Nicole Kidman since I was a kid so I really loved that article entitled "Five steps to an easy vintage look". It gave really nice ideas on how to dress up for future night-outs and events for starters like me. Thank you so much. :)
