We’re kicking 2018 off with a bang here at This Retro Life.
You are about to meet a woman with big hair, big personality and a big passion for old things!
In her life, vintage is a family affair with her mum and dad both sharing and embracing their own love of cars and fashion.
Unlike so many of us, she stuck it to the man and started dabbling in vintage fashion while she was still in high school and now her style is refined, sophisticated and the inspiration for so many others.
Ladies and Gents, meet Miss Cherrybomb.

We have already met one finalist in the Miss Pinup International competition when you met Miss Lexi Heart, but now it’s time to meet another.
This time we are off Ireland to meet someone with a love of pinup, Burlesque and world war two re-enacting.
Ladies and Gentlemen let me introduce you to Miss Emerald Elle.

This week we are running away and joining the circus!
What is it about that big top, the acrobats, trapeze artists and clowns that inspire us to dream of a life travelling the world performing.
But what if you made the dream a reality?
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Adele La Belle!

In April some of the most incredible women from around the world came together to compete for the title.
And it was a lass from New Zealand who took home the crown.
What I love about meeting people from around the world with a love of vintage is the communities they belong to.
Sometimes those communities are online, via social media, they can be at yearly events and festivals or living right next door.
Wherever they are the community the develops around our vintage passions are strong and supportive and this weeks episode is a shining example of that!
