Deadly is the Female interviews Lady Eccentrik
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!
We love seeing your wonderful posts on Instagram and we’d like to know a bit more about Lady Eccentrik, please tell us about yourself and how you got into the vintage style?
I fell in love with vintage on my quest to be different from my peers, I would always experiment with different vintage pieces mixing them current trends, this clearly wasn’t enough for me, I came across an iconic woman name ‘Grace jones’ and was especially captivated whenever she recreated a classic vintage look well as classic as grace can be she always gave her looks an edge. I then came across one of my biggest inspirations ‘Dita Von Tease’ and at that moment I was sold, I took the pledge and never looked back, such grace, such elegance, with a squeeze of sex appeal how could a gal go wrong? Here I am 3 years on and I tend to wear vintage pinup styles from head to toe, particularly the 1950’s and 40’s
To us, you are one of the most glamorous ladies on Instagram! Who is/are your style icons?
Honestly there’s to many to mention but Dita von tease is one of my style icons.
We love your outfit posts, they are always very stylish! What is your top tip for taking the perfect outfit picture?
Try to avoid a busy background.
The 5 Deadly questions…..
1) What is your most treasured piece in your wardrobe?
My true vintage hats
2) What is your top hair or makeup styling tip?
Try and set your hair the night before if you can, the curls last longer
3) What is your top tip for taking a good selfie or photo?
Personally, I love taking selfies because I’m never satisfied with photos that other people take. Lighting can make all the difference in a photo so make sure you have good light.
4) What 1 piece of advice would you give to girls who aspire to dress in the vintage style or aspire to be a model/blogger?
I’d say for the first-time vintage shopper, I know this can be frightening as we want to get the look right, dig your way through vintage stores, Oxfam and thrift stores we all love a bargain.
5) If you could have any item that is currently in stock from Deadly is the Female, what would it be?
