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: https://www.facebook.com/porcelinasworld?fref=ts
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
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.
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).
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.
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!
