I spent some time in the Vintage Emporium this afternoon, and  the general theme of the customers for the afternoon was why are vintage fashions so small. This started me thinking, why are the majority of fashions that have survived from the past,  usually on the smaller side. After all the hour glass figure was something most vintage women aspired to, a womanly figure was much sort after, and the majority of women were curvier.
Having said that, The Vintage Emporium  does stock lovely vintage for the fuller figure, and the girls working there are only too happy to help you find them.

I think that we curvier Divas deserve to look beautiful too, so I am making it my mission to source lovely vintage fashion and vintage style Clothing for us. I will keep you posted about my finds, so follow my Blog.

For those of you who are lucky enough to been able to eat chocolate and still maintain your figure, don't worry, there will still be lots of Vintage Fashion for you.

Cheers Julie

Stormy Weather and Gorgeous Fashion.

Today is the beginning of Retrobabes Blog, this afternoon we had a photo shoot down at the beach. Sounds good in theory - Imagine lots of Sun, blue skies, sand and the colour of those yummy bathing boxes. But we all know Melbourne’s changeable weather! Just as we got there the skies opened up and started pouring. So in between showers we took photos. Our gorgeous models Shakira and Gem were very professional and braved the weather and they still had  smiles on their faces, even though they had goosebumps. Thanks girls you did a great job! Maybe next time we will get the blue skies. These lovely treasures will be in the Vintage Emporium over the next couple of weeks. By the way the girls have claimed the crocheted bikinis for themselves, but there are more on the way.
