Visit Me At Victory Lamour

Vintage lovers, my vintage dedicated web digs are now live at and all future vintage and retro blog posts will be found there. At Victory Lamour I’ll be focusing on midcentury history, 40s and 50s fashion and film, as well as sustainability and recycling methods, authentic vintage and retro reproduction fashion, vintage caravans (and their repairs), gender and feminism, and the new body-positive pin-up movement.
