5 ways to inject vintage glamour into your everyday wardrobe.. without looking like you're headed to a costume party.

People often describe the way I'm dressed as "timeless" or even "regal". I choose to take that as a compliment! 

I also get asked "How do you do it?" a lot.  Many people are drawn to a "retro" or "vintage" look, but they want to avoid looking costume-y or ridiculous. The idea is to look timeless, classic and elegant, not pretentious or foolish. 

So.. what are the secrets? Over the next five days I will share what I think the key elements are. Try one or two for a little retro glam, or all five at once for the full power of a blast-from-the-past!

So, here they are... the five easy ways to inject some vintage, retro glam into your wardrobe, without looking like you're headed to a costume party!

  1. Rock the Frock
  2. Try a Cat's-Eye
  3. The Scarlet Pout
  4. Do the UpDo
