So this story actually started a year ago on a random summer day in June with my retro sister from another mister. We had a lot of fun that night, which included a lot of laughter, a lot of tapas and a cat. Like a lot of other days, we were dressed in modern vintage style and we also took some pictures that evening.
Summer passed;
The leaves were falling on the ground;
Christmas was around the corner again and we entered the new year;
I entered the new year with zero New Year’s Resolutions, a lot of Netflix resolutions and dreams about warm Spring and Summer days;
The days became longer again;
and just like that…a year had passed: It was Spring again.

5 reasons why (mini) hats should make a comeback in everyday fashion

When it comes to retro fashion I am a big fan of certain accessories. Today I want to shine some light on (mini) hats. I love them for several reasons, but here is a list of 5 reasons why (mini) hats should make a comeback in everyday fashion:
1. Instant Rainproof
A big floppy hat is perfect for those rainy days. And we have a lot of those in the Netherlands. Besides that, it also gives a little bit of protection to your styled hair. Not always applicable if you have long hair by the way. So I usually tuck my hair in my coat during winter days. Of course wind is definitely not a hat’s friend. So in that case, buy a hat that isn’t gone with the wind in a few seconds.

Vintage meets Present: Fascinating historical videos on Youtube

There is something about the introduction tune of historical videos and news bulletins. It always has this typical very nostalgic sound and it makes me anxious for the rest of the newsbulletin. It gives me that you-don’t-want-to-miss-this feeling. I have the same with introduction tunes of Old Hollywood movies. I love it. That’s why I’m always intrigued whenever I see old (news) videoclips. You can imagine that I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that Vintage meets Present was about to be taken literally.
