Ahoy my sweet
Every vintage lover knows it, every pin up girl loves it & everybody should wear it – vintage inspired, maritime styles! Why is that? Well, long story short – because it looks AWESOME ... everywhere, on everybody, at any time!
I have chosen this theme for my first collection ‘PRETTIE at the Sea’ because I love, love, love the maritime look and wanted to create something that appeals to so many vintage girls :)
So here we go – my 5 top reasons why you should wear a vintage inspired maritime-, nautical-, sailor style:
#1 FEEL & SPREAD A 'SAIL AWAY' MOOD OF YESTERDAYS
Maritime vintage inspired styles evoke emotions – in yourself AND your surrounding. Summer, sun, happiness and – of course - the sea…. Everybody loves this positive image of freedom, sailing away, just let the soul swing freely and remember the good old days…

#2 IT SUITS ANY TIME OF THE DAY,
Some styles are
slightly linked to a certain time of the day or venue. Not a maritime style! Wear it any time of the day and anywhere and you are dressed properly and look sooo nice - in the morning, in the
evening, day and night, at the beach, in the park, at a party ...
