I also follow Eleonora's instagram account @eleanor-rebel which I've been following for quite some time now and her facebook page which is: https://www.facebook.com/EleanorRebel/?fref=ts
I wanted something that would immediately tell the reader what to expect. I love 40s and 50s fashion, that is my everyday style so I wanted to incorporate that into my blog name so Mid Century came instantly to my mind, the other part was tough. Sweetheart came to me when I was drying my daughters hair, I found it cute and appropriate.
Question: Please describe your blogging style?
I am a positive person so I always seek and try to point out the best in everything and I believe in the old saying If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all. So reviewing clothing, jewelry, bags etc I am always honest but never mean! I love to write about clothes that is custom-made by my ideas, that is where my heart goes. I like to have professional photos for my blog but if that is not possible I go to nature with my mom, she is my backup photographer.
Question: What inspired you to start blogging?
I find my inspiration in many vintage/pin up bloggers but reading their posts sometimes I found something missing and by the time I decided to start a blog I had a lot of collaborations, lot of photos that were telling a story. I wanted to put that story out there, to tell others why and how much I love some products and brands. We live in a time when everything bad is louder than good, trolls are everywhere and compliments for hard work is hard to get. I wanted to write something nice about people and their goods in the pin up community.
Question: Describe your fashion sense/style?
After punk chick, rockabilly and modern pin up I found my heart in classic pin up. I find inspiration on Pinterest, Instagram and new movies and series that are set in the 40s and 50s. My style goes from 50s housewife to teen in saddle shoes with a lot of swing dresses and accessories. I love bangles and brooches, bright colors and novelty prints.
Question: Do you have any favorite bloggers and if so can you please name a few?
Sure do! Junebugs and Georgia Peaches, Miss Amy May, Miss Psycho Cat, Miss Victory Violet, Alice in Retrospect, Miss Ginger Tulips, The vintage anatomy are the ones that came to my mind now, there are a lot of bloggers I follow.
Question: What can your readers/followers expect from you and your blog over the next 12 months?
This year started amazing, a lot of collaborations are coming up (Miss Fortune UK, Love ur look, Lady Luck's Boutique,...) also a few old and new clothing pieces that are made to measure to inspired gals who sew will be on the blog next weeks. I'm coming to UK this summer so I hope to grab some true vintage pieces, lingerie, hats and bags to share with my readers.
I hope you all enjoyed reading and getting to know Eleonora and her blog Mid Century Sweetheart a little better!
Thank-you so much Eleonora for taking time to answer my blog interview questions!
Until next time!
