Life in Vintage #4 – Vintage on the Telly



What does everyone think of Dawn O’Porter’s series This Old Thing?

I have watched all the episodes and whilst I agree with trying to get more people into wearing vintage, I think that there is too much emphasis on 80s fashions plus she is making life way too complicated by drastically altering clothes to fit  – like the jacket we saw in Episode 2.  I think that will put new people off as making a relatively cheap item too expensive

Or she is completely changing the style of an item so it could barely be described as vintage anymore.


I haven’t looked at the book yet so perhaps I’ll reserve judgement until then…


And does her hairstyle annoy you as much as it does me??
