Getting to Know Porcelina's World

Here's the next vintage inspired blogger lady I love to introduce to you all, to my blogger interview series Sarah from Porcelinas World
I've only been following Sarah's blog for a few months now, but already I'm enjoying reading her blog post's and admiring her blog photos!
As well as posting about her vintage & vintage reproduction outfits, Sarah posts about everyday lifestyle & social outings/get together's etc.

I also follow Sarah on her instagram account which is @porcelinasworld
Sarah also has a facebook page to like and follow which is:
Question:  How did you come up with the name Porcelinas World for your blog?

 It seems unlikely now, but my music tastes used to be a little on the melancholy side.  'Porcelina' was a nickname taken from a song on a Smashing Pumpkins album, and it sort of stuck as I was very pale at the time!  I see more daylight these days and listen to a range of jovial music instead.

Question:  Please describe your blogging style?

 My blog is an outlet for anything vaguely vintagey that I get up to. Sometimes I want to share pictures of an outfit, or I might have been on a day trip somewhere exciting and want to encourage others to visit it.  My blog is lifestyle based rather than being solely outfit focused, and that's helped me keep it going - even if I am not able to get out and take outfit photos, I can share what I've been up to socially.  I blog because I enjoy it, and try and keep my blog a positive space.
 Question:  What inspired you to start blogging?

I started blogging as a way to connect to others who share my passion for vintage.  There are a lot of us out there!  These days, there are many Facebook groups and events that weren't around when I started blogging, so it's even easier now for vintage newbies to make connections with like-minded folk.  I have been meeting fellow vintage enthusiasts in person over the last couple of years, and that has been a lot of fun.  I have formed some firm friendships and would urge everyone to attend a meet if they can.

Question:  Describe your fashion sense/style?

 My wardrobe is a mix of vintage, repro and classic high street.  Much of it is from the car boot sale.  On an average day I tend to pick and mix from my favourite decades (20s to 70s) - I rarely go head to toe in one era.  I like to try out different styles and use different influences depending on my mood.  That can include Westernwear, folk, Art Deco, Poirot, Miss Fisher, novelty prints, nautical, rockabilly, Mad Men or Rosie the riveter!  For more regular snippets of my everyday wardrobe, please see my Instagram account (@porcelinasworld).
 Question:  Do you have any favorite bloggers and if so can you please name a few?

Instead of old favourites I'm going to name a couple of new-to-me bloggers: firstly, 'Of Pearls and Stars' is a blog run by a writer in Los Angeles with an impressive vintage collection and some impressive sewing and design talent.  Another new favourite is 'Finding Femme', an Australian blog showcasing the most wonderful photography of classic looks, with some great storytelling to accompany it.

 Question:  What can your readers/followers expect from you and your blog over the next 12 months?

More charity shop bargains, online shopping mishaps, overdressing, novice sewing, Welsh tourism and time-travelling!  I'm under increasing time pressure from my PhD, so this may mean a few less outfit posts but I still enjoy day trips and holidays in my time off (very important!) so travel will continue to feature quite heavily.  Next month I will be visiting North Wales, and there are upcoming vintage events locally, as well as a few cheeky afternoon teas planned.
  I hope you all enjoyed getting to know Sarah and her blog Porcelinas World a little better, I know I have!

Thank-you so much Sarah for agreeing and finding time to take part if my interview blogger series! xo

Until next time!
Miss Milla Cherry
