People can surprise our lives with such beauty and vivacity of spirit, and I must admit that since becoming more involved in the vintage loving community, I have been blown away by the goodness, generosity, care and kindness of so many of the lovely people I meet. Despite what the media would have us believe, the world is not 'going to the dogs' any more than any other time in history, and this months adorable living doll is proof that people in general are beautiful on both the inside and out !! Here is the darling of 'Lucky Trix', Tara-Lee......
Vintage to me is anything from the 50s and earlier.
What is your favourite era, and do you 'live it' every day? In what ways?
I’d have to say the 50s, the outfits back then were amazing. I would love to try hunt down some fabulous dresses, skirts and capris from this era (or inspired by the era) to wear in everyday life. I think the 50s were such a glamorous and beautiful time for fashion. It seemed to be all about embracing the hourglass figure =)
Do you have any tips for anyone starting out in the vintage scene?
I am a Mummy to a gorgeous 17 month old little girl, Miss Lily Trix. I am a Stay-At-Home Mum who is obsessed with anything cupcake related and I run a hair accessories and jewellery line – Lucky Trix Creations (www.facebook.com/luckytrixcreations) in my spare time =)
I love to bake, I am dreaming of a kitchen right out of the 50s.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends =)
I am looking forward to shedding the baby weight and getting into some pin up modelling in the future !
Finally, what or who inspires you and why?
My better half, Jesse. He brings out the creative side in me and is always so supportive of my dreams. He works hard for the family and is the most laid back and down to Earth person I know. My daughter also inspires me to step back and just enjoy the little things in life, stop and watch the butterflies dancing over our heads and giggle at silly things and always have a smile for everyone.
