Paris Brown’s great grandparents lived through a lot; war, depression, innovation and modernisation.
They saw tv and the internet develop, presidents assassinated, nations recover from war and man walk on the moon, how can you not be inspired by that!
It’s not surprising Paris now lives a modern vintage life.
For the month of June we are taking you on a virtual vintage tour of the world.
Each week you’ll meet someone who is living in vintage life in different countries. You’ll get to hear about their local vintage scene and be inspired by their retro events.
Our first stop is Barcelona, Spain to meet Miss Sixties Twist.
Dr Colleen Darnell in Egypt with a 1970’s Land rover in front of a house built in 1906!
So every week on the podcast I nerd out a little. I can’t help it. I get to talk to my people! Those that share a passion for vintage and who have incredible collections or have achieved amazing things.
But this weeks episode pushes my nerdy fan girl to the very edge! This week we aren’t just talking to a beautiful 1920’s dame, you get to meet an Egyptologist with an incredible vintage flare!
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Dr Colleen Darnell!!!
This week we are taking a virtual tour of Australia’s longest running milk bar.
You might expect it to be based in Sydney or Melbourne but that’s not the case. This piece of history can be found in the remote mining town of Broken Hill.
So pull up a chair and get ready to devour a milkshake at Bells Milk Bar.
Some might call it an obsession but here at This Retro Life we call our love of vintage a passion.
Marc Rondeau’s passion is everything 1950’s! And he means EVERYTHING.
I have been following Marjorie May Fair on instagram for a while now and cannot get enough of her incredible talent for vintage hair and makeup and her fashion!
