Deadly is the Female interviews Mid Century Mummy!
There are so many beautiful bloggers, models and gals who love the vintage style and we absolutely adore! We wanted to get together with a few to quiz them about anything and everything to do with clothing, makeup, hair, body confidence, selfie tips and so much more! In each interview we ask the lovely ladies 3 personalised questions to get an insight into each ladies lives and then we ask 5 Deadly questions which have been put together by our staff and customers that will be asked in each interview, how exciting!
This week we got to interview one of our new Deadly models and a very yummy mummy, the absolutely beautiful and very sweet Jane of @midcenturymummy!
1) Mid Century Mummy or the lovely Jane, We absolutely love your outfit of the day posts on Instagram they are always so fierce and inspiring! How did you get into dressing in a vintage style and has your style changed since you first started dressing in this way?
Aww thank you. I’ve always been obsessed with clothes, wearing them, looking at them and buying them. My mum constantly regales stories of me at the age of 2, changing outfits up to 4 times a day. My love for vintage style, started around 10 years ago, I read an article on Dita Von teese and I couldn’t stop looking her. She looked like some beautiful alien and I never knew people could dress like that. I wanted in on it! In the last 3 years I’ve relaxed my style much more and explored different avenues of vintage clothing, such as western and 70s fashion.
2) We are not only a beautiful lady but you are also a gorgeous hardworking mummy! Do you ever dress your children in a vintage style? (Too cute!) What advice would you give to other mummy’s who want to dress in the vintage style but aren’t sure how to juggle children and style?
I did with my daughter when she was younger, I’d often match our dresses and colour co ordinate our outfits, but she has her own style now, which is lovely and I like the fact she still asks me advice on outfits and clothing! I’m not going to lie, it’s hard and some days, tracksuit bottoms and sloppy tees are life! But my advice would be invest in lots of coloured hairscarfs, as they hide a multitude of dirty hair sins and a good pair of jeans, with a retro blouse or top still look awesome and vintage styled, but easy to wear and wash with children.
3) You recently took part in your first photo shoot right here at Deadly is the Female. Can you tell us about the experience and what was your favourite part about the photo shoot?
I had THE best day at Deadly Is The Female, from the lovely hotel I stayed in, to meeting up with you 3 gorgeous women the night before (Claudia the owner of Deadly and models Scarlett Luxe & Lady Eccentrik) to the day of the shoot. It’s so hard to choose, but I think it would probably have been the actual shoot itself. I was so nervous beforehand, but you guys were so supportive and encouraging, it made a world of difference. The entire day I was made to feel so incredibly welcome and comfortable, it made the whole experience a truly wonderful day to remember.
