For some of us, we find our love of vintage later in life after decades of trying to make skinny jeans and t-shirts feel right.
But for this weeks guest, the love affair with old things started when she was young.
Now it’s a fully fledged hobby, it’s helped shaped her career and helped her meet her husband and some of her closest friends.
Meet Michelle Coursey from My Vintage Love.
This episode is best consumed with a good cup of piping hot tea.
Why? Because it is one of the many things that blogger and vintage lover Emileigh Rogers enjoys in life.
And in this chat we cover all her life loves from thrift shopping to life abroad and the many complexities of living a vintage life in a modern time.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Alright hands up. Who here has tried one of those diets that seem to good to be true?
You are not alone. In fact people have been trying fad diets since the early 20th Century.
