Liebster Blog Award

Yesterday I received a blog award from the author of one of my favourite blogs, Evie's Tea Room, which is quite exciting!

These are the questions that Ivy asked me. 

1 - Who is your favorite actress from vintage film?
I would say that my favourite actress from a classic film would be one of the more obvious choices, Marilyn Monroe. I absolutely loved her in Bus Stop, and I have always been jealous of the costumes she got to wore. 

2 - Who is your favorite actor from vintage film?
James Dean is for sure, even though I have only watched his film Rebel Without a Cause. He is just so handsome heh. 

3 - What era of clothing do you love most?
It varies usually from month to month. At the moment, I am really enjoying late 1950's to early 1960's style. I love how curve hugging the clothes are and they work quite well with my shape. 

4 - If you could have played the starring role in any old movie, what would it be?
I would have loved to played Peggy Van Alden in Jailhouse Rock, alongside Elvis. It is one of my favourite movie and who wouldn't want to kiss Elvis? 

5 - What is your favorite piece of vintage clothing you own?
I would say it is an absolutely divine 1950's party dress. In my next post I will be featuring it, I wore it to my school's winter formal banquet and dance. 

6 - If you could have an alter ego, what would your name be?
It would probably be Bettie Rage, the name I used to use when I was involved in roller derby. 

7 - Favorite artist/painter?
I absolutely love Vincent Van Gogh. His work seems so magical and the uses of colours is brilliant. I would love to see his paintings in real life.

8 - Do you collection anything? If so, what do you collect?
I collect spaghetti poodles from the 1950's, preferably in white or pastel colours. At the moment I have three, one pink and two white. They are just so adorable, and eventually I hope to have a large collection of them.

9 - What is your favorite flower?
I really do adore pink roses, or any type of rose for that matter. 

10 - If you were to get married in the past, what time period would you choose?
I could imagine it being amazing to be married around 1920 or so. I love the dresses from back then and I would think the party afterwards would be quite crazy. 

11 - What do you enjoy most about blogging?
What I love about blogging is that I can show people what I wear, and what my sense of style is all about. I also hope to inspire people to wear what they truly like and want to wear, instead of what society tells them they should be wearing.
