Vintage/Retro Influencers I Follow

June 16, 2019

I recently have experienced a discovery of new vintage YouTubers and bloggers to follow and adore, and I thought it would be nice to share them with you in case you were looking for your own inspiration for vintage-inspired fashion and all-round lovely stuff!

I love Rachel's sense of humour; she never comes across like she's taking herself overly seriously, which makes her informative and inspiring videos all the more enjoyable. On her YouTube channel, she shares vintage hairstyles, hauls, and tips and tricks for achieving vintage style creatively on a budget. She transforms modern items from websites like SheIn into a vintage outfit seamlessly, and I love her more earth-toned and muted retro looks.

I've loved Ella's content for a while without even realising it. If you scroll through my vintage Pinterest board, you don't have to look far before you come across one of her beautiful outfits! She always looks so elegant and put-together, with perfect hairstyles, precise makeup, and of course extraordinary 1950s-style dresses galore. Her content is the perfect inspiration for someone who wants to enjoy a glamourous pinup look!

Karolina's fascination with authentic fashion history is honestly a joy to behold. She's so witty and insightful, and shares videos debunking historical fashion myths (and critiquing people's oversimplified approach to retro, vintage, and antique fashion styles), tutorials for hair and fashion styles, and Get Ready With Me videos from various eras. I really love her approach, with her focus on authenticity and the variety of eras she celebrates.

Sara's content makes me overwhelming happy. Her outfits are so vibrant and colourful, packed with 1950s-inspired joy! She always writes very candidly about body positivity, which I really appreciate. No one, not even yourself, has the right to make you feel inferior because of your weight or size, and I love that she makes such a point of bringing that message to the vintage-loving community.

Jessica's videos are all about raising awareness for chronic illnesses and disabilities, alongside LGBTQ+ awareness which typically include her wife, Claudia. As well as all that, she shares fascinating information about famous historical figures, and helpful and inspiring videos about vintage hairstyles and fashion. Her content is laced with so much wit and well-researched information, and she's a YouTuber I really recommend adding to your subscriptions.

 I enjoy reading sewing blogs, and I enjoy reading vintage fashion blogs, so I was delighted when I came across The Crafty Pinup. Abi has a whole section of her blog dedicated to sewing retro items of clothing, including (but not limited to) 1960s nightwear, 1950s shirt dresses, and 1940s overalls! She's so skilled, and I adore her choice of fabrics and patterns more and more with every post.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, and I hope you've found some new bloggers and YouTubers to follow that you haven't come across before! If you'd like to see more of my content, be sure to follow me using the links in my sidebar!
