So I somehow stumbled across this Buzzfeed list of 19 Women With Vintage Style You’ll Want to Follow on Instagram – and you know what my first thought was?
Where’s the diversity?
While I love the people they profiled, I did get a feeling of ‘sameness’ from those photos.
The Vintage Community around the world is wonderfully diverse and gorgeous – let’s expand those stereotypes about who is rocking vintage.
*Buzzfeed did include @norafinds (she’s great), but I still think we can work on their list.
So in response, here’s my:

Angelique is an amazing pin-up model with the most gorgeous sense of style. Immaculate!
I have a not-so-secret girl crush on Esther – I mean how can you not love someone as cute as her? She’s an LA-based stylist, and lovely person in real life too.
Our mug shots tonight. Had to go for kinda 60s hair due to rain and hella humidity. ???????? Dress I made from @gertie18’s dress book, vintage purse, @chineselaundry shoes. Vintage shirt and hat and @woodwatches_com wristwatch on @melmakesart. Taco time!! ???????????? #vintagestyle #vintagecouple #gertiesultimatedressbook #sewing #raffiapurse #barkclothshirt #thedailybake #bakelite #1950s #1950sfashion
I love Tasha’s take on vintage style – fun and wearable. Chicago-based, she makes a tonne of her own vintage reproductions, knits beautifully and even sews amazing things for her wife @melmakesart.
Warning, some of Mari Mambo’s photos are NSFW, but her style is killer. She’s a fixture on the LA Vintage scene, and I really love her pachuca outfits.
Mila and I had the chance to do a shoot with our friends the Reese’s recently! Here’s one shot where I got to wear this gorgeous teens suit, and Mila is wearing a beautiful 20s gown.

Blake posts some really dapper looks for guys/masculine peeps, and is a great example of someone living the 1920s-40s lifestyle. I love his vintage ties!
A snap from last week’s vintage outfit blog post starring a beautiful pair of art deco inspired earrings from Spanish brand @moncarrousel. This is one of my favourite ensembles in a long, long time. Forties fun with a deco jewelry twist. ???? #chronicallyvintage #vintagefashion #MonCarrousel #artdecojewellery #1940sfashion #vintageblog #vintageblogger #1940sstyle #jumperdress #vintagehat #tatyanaboutique #truevintageootd #ootd #whatiwore #blackandyellow
Jessica hales from Canada, and looks like perfection all the while battling chronic illnesses. I particularly love her sense of colour.
On a side note, Jessica’s house just recently burnt down and she’s lost everything – here’s a link to her GoFundMe if you’d like to help.
Brittany is on this list for showing us that you don’t need to have a million dollars, to look like a million dollars. She’s always showing her followers how to make their own vintage accessories to save money – proving you don’t need to spend thousands on floaty evening dresses to fit in the scene.
I just want to squeez Jazzy into a million pieces, she looks like a vintage cherub.

Jenny is a curvy model living in LA, and has a seriously stunning wardrobe. I like her glamorous outfits, and that she’s not afraid to show us what she looks like in underwear.
Lori is darling – and looks amazingly like Lucille Ball. I’m always jealous of her 1940’s rayon crepe dresses, and love her crazy sense of humor.
Well, that’s my list of 10 more people to check out – now tell me, who should I be following?
