Meet gorgeous Vintage Queen no 154, the lovely Jo from the UK. With her colourful hair and mix and match approach to vintage, she makes the Forties, Fifties and Sixties her own, creating a really unique style (check out her Instagram) that I love. Plus doesn’t she look amazing on her wedding day?

“My name is Jo, I’m 29 and I have been wearing vintage since my teens, with a ‘full on’ head to toe look for the last seven years. I got hooked on a vintage aesthetic all thanks to my two nans – one is the queen of thrifting which she has passed on to my mum, so I grew up trawling charity shops and jumble sales with them. My other nan is Elvis-mad and I started watching his films with her when I was very small and from then on always wanted to look like one of his leading ladies!

Vintage encompasses my whole lifestyle: I have chickens, I love making do and mending, my house is full of vintage, upcycled and handcrafted items, plus I had a vintage, Fifties-inspired wedding.

I wear Forties, Fifties and Sixties with a colourful twist, but I’m not too devoted to any era or a truly authentic look. I actually work in Nuclear Decommissioning so dressing vintage is my creative outlet!

I’m not sure quite why I love it so much, but I do and it makes me feel a million dollars.”
