Living Dolls - Miss November

Our darling doll for November is the charming (and brilliant blogger to boot) Amy Jensen ( aka Dizzy Dame )

What does 'vintage' mean to you?

precode and precolor

What was it that first prompted your interest in vintage culture?

This is a hard question because I do not recall a standout moment, I must of been 13 when I first saw a photo of Bonnie Parker and wanted her dress. I have just always loved history.

What is your favourite era, and do you 'live it' every day? In what ways?

1930s is my favorite. I live it through many of my photos.

Tell us about your favourite item of vintage clothing, kitchenalia, music, furniture or whatever !

I love my vintage record players and my collection of photographs, vaudeville items.. so on.

Can you share with us why vintage culture continues to hold such appeal for you?

I love the style so much and the way of life.

Do you have any tips for anyone starting out in the vintage scene?

watch as many silent films as you can, and that goes to anyone ;)

Now is your chance to provide us with an overview of who you are and what you do.
I love photography and do a lot of that,I love to recapture an era that is lost. I love the history of old hollywood/show business, I blame it on my family that was in it,perhaps it runs through my blood, I often think about them when I do certain photos that scream old glamour, they would be proud!

I have a wonderful boyfriend who loves vintage as well, he adores the 1950s the most,we have a lot of fun reminiscing with the past. We now have a 1949 Chevy deluxe to add to our fun.

I am a very simple midwest girl really,that prefers jazz and dancing with a full moon in the country.

Finally, what or who inspires you and why?

Old films,old photographs, John Galliano, Hitchcock,vamps, art deco, music,gun molls,30s gangsters.

Just things I love.
