Teddy Girl + Doortje Vintage Giveaway!!

Who doesn't love a bit of kick-ass female retro inspiration? Today I was obviously inspired by Teddy Girls. Androgynous, cheeky, preppy, casual but put together: love it. 

I went for less victorian inspiration and more of a fifties-sixties preppy student look, sort of like Rizzo of Grease's Pink Ladies.

Sorry, very hard to find good pics of their style but I'm sure everyone knows what kind of iconic looks I'm referring too here! Anyway, I modernized the inspiration with a Bruce Springsteen T and some jeggings. Very fun outfit to wear, after all who doesn't want to feel like a member of a girlgang from time to time? Ok maybe I'm just weird like that. At leats I'm not alone, my ultimate style icon Erin of Calivintage did a post on classic teddy girls as well!

Anywayzz girls I have another giveaway for those who missed out on the shopbop thingy! Doortje Vintage contacted me because they loved my style and thought we would be compatible. I had to agree! I was delighted when they offered to do a giveaway for my lovely readers. The items up for grabs:

An orange belt, would look amazing with practically ANYTHING and I want it. Measures 32-38 inches or 82-96 cm from smallest to larges hole.

A brooch

And this cute little bag! Length: 8,5 inch/21,5cm, width: 9 inch/22,5cm.

Anyway, to enter!

    The first teddy girl photo above was taken by Ken Russell and I have a PILE of them on the blog here (http://thelicentiate.blogspot.com/2011/01/i-want-to-be-teddy-girl.html) if you want to take a look see.

    Re: your hater post above - I got my first hater comment above who told me that I ruined all clothing (!) - put a post up on facebook asking other bloggers how to deal with that kind of thing. An ideal strategy is the immediately delete abusive comments and install Statcounter to monitor trolls.

  26. Enjoyed reading this, I like how you included comments from your commenters. Btw, you have such a flawless face! : X yay!

  28. Aiyaaa! I missed so many lovely posts while I was on vacation! :) You look adorable as always & I'm really digging the shirt! My boyfriend loves Bruce Springsteen & has gotten me to be a fan as well (especially of that ass, which I'm glad to see is the subject of the shirt ;)). Leopard shoes are nice! You always pull off the coolest styles.
