My Favourite Era: Retro Chick

Our latest interview in the series called “My Favourite Era” is with Gemma, the lady behind the successful blog, Retro Chick.

We have been reading this blog for what seems like forever and have long since admired her mix of vintage fashion with her love of getting a bargain, as well as all the other pies she has her fingers in! We met at a vintage fair in Norfolk, where she is from, and sold her a fab metal vintage suitcase!

So, can you guess her favourite era?? Read on…..


Hello! For any of our readers that don’t know about you (as if!), tell us a bit about yourself….

My name is Gemma, I work freelance and I’m a writer, photographer, events organiser and occasional model, I’ve managed to turn my love of vintage into a full time job and get involved in all sorts of things around it! I run the vintage lifestyle blog Retro Chick and I’m the Editor of the events and magazine site Vintage Norwich.


I love
