I interviewed her to get her style advice as she has impeccable style. Q: How did you start dressing in vintage fashion? A: “It all started five years ago when me and my best friend got into swing dancing at the age of 15. We instantly fell in love with the music from the 1930s-1940s.

Classic Men: What It Is Like To Be A Male Vintage Fashion Enthusiast.

I t has come to my attention that there are a lot of males who follow me and that they feel like I never pay attention to the male side vintage fashion. That’s because, well, I’m a woman.
