It was while living in rural Austria that Waltraud Reiner remembers her first hat.
Even though it belonged to traditional dress, it was considered “out there” because of it’s vibrant red colour.
But that wasn’t where she fell in love with hats. That happened years later in Australia.

It’s time for stop three on our virtual vintage voyage!
Pack a bag we are going on a roadtrip.
Think of your perfect vintage camper trailer, the classic car you want pulling it and that’s our ride this week.

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 off to Berlin to meet an Australian who is ingrained in the German cities burlesque scene.
It was a first date that saw La Viola Vixen first experience the art of burlesque.
I first found Melanie on instagram and was instantly drawn to her pinup style and posts about her sweet pooch Archie.
But when I started learning more about her (in a completely non creepy podcast research kind of way) a whole world opened up around me.
