I’m Miss Amy May, a vintage style enthusiast who loves retro clothing, a knife-sharp eyeliner wing, and spending too much time on Instagram looking at other stylish pinups. Having embraced the style only during my mid-20s almost out of nowhere, I’m keen to document my style as I hone and develop it, and I’m always happy to give tips, tricks and advice to any ladies new to the style or wondering whether they can ‘pull it off’–to which my answer is always, ‘yes, you can.’
Body positivity is important to me, so in amongst the dress reviews–in which I will always give an honest opinion and advice on fit particularly for ladies who, like me, may find plus-sizing during online shopping difficult–you’ll also find blog posts about embracing your body, style and self for all that it and you are. Life is too short not to wear pretty dresses if you want to, and it is also too short not to eat cake and love your shape.
I’m lucky enough to have modeled for Deadly Is The Female, Vendula London, Voodoo Vixen, and for In Retrospect magazine, the latter of which I have been featured in, in addition to Vintage Life Magazine.
On the blog I’ve worked with many of my favourite vintage inspired companies, including Pinup Girl Clothing, Collectif, Unique Vintage, Voodoo Vixen, Malco Modes petticoats, Queen of Heartz, Heart of Haute, Vivien of Holloway, Zoe Vine, Goldie’s Clothing, LoveURLook and numerous others.
It’s important to me to build up other women, answer any questions they may have, give honest advice and help, and to help share the joy and positivity that I feel so enriches our vintage community. This style is an attitude and a love, more so than it is a pretty dress worn the right way, and I encourage anyone who shares that attitude and love to indulge that passion without worrying what the rest of the world may think of it.
