“I feel like a princess when I’m wearing pink taffeta with organza puffs all over it. But at the same time I feel like myself.”
No matter what your vintage passion is, most of us tend to prefer certain eras.
This week on the podcast we’re going back to the 18th century.
Think pre Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
You’re about to meet a woman who dresses in vintage attire ranging from the 18th century to 1950.
She’s a blogger and founder of American Duchess and Royal Vintage Shoes .
Meet Lauren Stowell.
Kauffman Desert House – Palm Springs. Marco’s favourite mid-century home.
I love looking at real estate.
The more out of my budget the better.
I don’t know if it’s getting a sense of how others live or being able to dream of a time (maybe, hopefully) that a house could be mine.
Of course most of my dream real estate hunting ends up with my focussing on mid-century modern homes from around the world. So I was pretty pleased to meet Marco Guagliardo from Mid-Century Home.
We’re off to get our photo taken and it’s going to be something special.

Glamorous, luxurious and captivating are all words to describe the work of Melissa Heart.
She is the latest in a long family line of seamstress and is channeling the skills her grandmother learnt working in the fashion industry in the 1950’s and 60’s to create beautiful pieces today.
She is the creative mind behind Evette Dubois Lingerie.
