About me

I’m a vintage-loving girl living in East Anglia in the UK, who has a day job in book publishing. The name ‘CiCi Marie’ is a play on my real name and initials (I’ll also probably mention my husband ‘B’ from time to time, who is also the man behind many of my photos).

This blog – now in its 5th year – is an outpouring of my love of vintage-inspired style – with a particular passion for the 1950s. My posts are primarily about fashion and beauty, including the occasional tutorial, hoping to offer inspiration and guidance to help anyone to style themselves similarly a little bit vintage. Most of the looks you’ll see here are created from modern or repro items, so I will usually list where everything is from in case you see something you like! I sometimes receive product gifts for review, but only feature items I genuinely love and label all clearly with ‘c/o’.

For a quick taster of what I write about here, see my Best of page for links to my top posts.
