Dita Von Teese – I fell in love with vintage style eight years ago, when I saw her for the first time!
You can only wear one outfit for the rest of time! What are you wearing?
Black and elegant. Pencil skirt, blouse, gloves, pumps and a hat.
If you could live in any fashion era of the past, which would it be and why?
It would have to be the '30s or the 19th-century.

Your personal style goals for 2019:
To be more focused – to further refine my aesthetic.
Your go-to retro/vintage-inspired beauty moves?
The main factors in vintage style beauty are hair and makeup. You really need to make an effort with both to create the complete vintage look. I do my hair every day and share tutorials on my Instagram account and YouTube channel, regularly. For makeup, it's definitely a red lip! Lots of different shades of red! 💄💋
