@Rations2R_n_R…#womensupportingwomen.

We are proud to admit that @Rations2R_n_R has developed over time. Our original introduction https://rations2rocknroll.wordpress.com/2016/12/27/rations2-rocknroll/ moved seamlessly to https://rations2rocknroll.wordpress.com/2017/02/16/welcome-to-rations2rocknroll-and-thank-you-for-following/.

Nine months after our birth we are still developing.

Our love of retro and vintage fashion will always be our priority but we have a further desire to support #womeninbiz.

Our links and collaborations page https://rations2rocknroll.wordpress.com/links-to-those-with-whom-we-have-engaged-in-blog-post-collaborations/ gives an opportunity to small businesses to receive free and unconditional support.

I believe that, despite the many supportive comments, there is one from Kirstie @SparkleOHara that has affected me in an emotional, but positive, way…”Christine…has really helped us describe what we do and why we do it. All for the love of helping.”

I am happy to support #womeninbiz without condition…and it had been proven as successful with reciprocal support from both parties.

With almost 3,500 followers and our blog receiving record views each month…please contact me via direct message on Twitter or by email rations2rocknroll@outlook.com.

Who is your vintage style icon?

Who is your vintage style icon? A question posed by Sparkle O’Hara in their competition mentioned in our blog post https://rations2rocknroll.wordpress.com/2017/09/18/who-is-your-vintage-style-icon-tell-sparkle-ohara-to-have-a-chance-of-receiving-a-personal-dose-of-sparkle/.

With much consideration I have; perhaps unusually although I hope with valid reasons, selected a fictional character in Joan Holloway from Mad Men portrayed by Christina Hendricks.

The 1960s saw many women chosing to raise their hemlines to almost indecent lengths and ditch the more restrictive lingerie and hosiery of the 1950s. 

Contrary to this trend Joan continued to wear her traditional corsetry and fashion that reflected the earlier decade…

…this floral pencil (wiggle) dress being an example.

As a ‘person’ Joan projected herself as a strong and confident woman. She was actually very vulnerable and it is these flaws that appeal to me as we each have our own.

It is however her 1950s style; build on a foundation of the corsetry of my favoured fashion era, that has led to my selection of Joan Holloway as my vintage style icon.
