Vintage, retro, fifties, sixties, seventies and (gasp) eighties!
We're all drawn to an era, through music, fashion and sometimes food - yes, the seventies chick in me (Le'V here writing) owns and displays proudly an orange fondue set. For some, it may be a dirty little secret (I've seen a lot of closets in my styling time), yet there is a timeless, feminine quality direct from the past, that continues to stand the test of time (disclaimer: the eighties - I'm just saying).
Style trends of bygone eras call to us like an annoying 5am bird-song. For example, I can't go past some Farah Fawcett flicks circa 1977. Steph loves a good Victory roll. And CJ would sleep in her Audrey-style frocks and tap shoes given the opportunity, while Mel has been coveting french-style, garden party frocks with keen mutterings about a 'smoky-eye'.
And with that in mind we (at LFB) are here to encourage you to embrace that fun, feminine part of you that deep down would rather sashay and swing on the dance floor with Danny Zuko of Grease fame or sway cosmically at Woodstock in a cloud of suede fringing and patchouli.
Since gracing us with her Vintageous presence, I'm not going to lie, we've all been motivated to up-the-vintage-anti. Seriously, Mel and I have both dusted off our straighteners and curling irons. I may or may not have taken to donning my (one) sixties style head-scarf....(bad hair days and the poverty- line/dark roots called for it). And CJ? Well we all know CJ isn't one to shy away from a new 'do' or two!
Combining the Vintage Hair and Make-up services and our super-feminine frocks and figure-forgiving fashion we are encouraging you all to throw fashionable caution to the wind, have some fun and glam up! Even if it's a scarf in your hair with your jeans and tee. It's seriously easy (ask Steph how).
Which begs the question: 'What's Your Vintage'? Like a fine wine or cheese (our other favourite things) you get to choose so let the games begin!
And in March and April we are giving you an opportunity to get your Vintage on when we kick off our 'Vintageous Me' Hair, Make-up and Vintage Style Workshops! Spots are limited so keep your eyes peeled to Facebook for registration and check back here (follow links) to get in first.
Until then,enjoy our crazy markdowns in Feb and stay Fab!
With a smile ...
