“I’m Brittany from Va-Voom Vintage. I’m a housewife and mom of two from St Louis. I love to sew, knit cook, blog and am completely obsessed with vintage fashion.

Many years ago, I began studying historical fashions from the Elizabethan to Victorian eras. I always wanted to be able to wear those beautiful gowns every day but corsets and bustles aren’t very practical.

That’s when I discovered vintage. It’s a part of history that I could wear every day, even with housework and kids. I love the way vintage fits and flatters my body and it makes me feel lovely to get dressed up every single day.

The thrill of the hunt is just as fun as getting dolled up. I spend a lot of time rummaging through thrift store racks, warehouses and old houses to find my clothes. I call it “fashion archaeology”- digging through piles of junk to find long lost treasures.”
