My house is midmodern, my dad was a Rockabilly and I wanted
a classic Pin up makeover for a long time.
So I went to My Old Dutch in Margate and did have a haircut &
make-up retro style .
Debbie (the owner), she is so sweet and pretty, told me to cut my fringe(bangs) ones a week (that will be fun, lol).
Now I am working on my make-up. I'm so bad with eyeliner&co but I will take some photos when I got my perfect vintage look( promised).
wonderful weekend music Kitty Daisy&Lewis

I love vintage and I also love Margate in Kent, it's nice to see that Margate Old Town has gone retro and you can find some great retro vintage shops there.
Helter Skelter is one of them. Katharine, the owner, is lovely. She got lots of collectibles from the 60s and 70s. Wonderful posters, books and furniture.
Now I only have to find
Quadrophenia on Dvd
for Mister Kay
