My favourite vintage style is: The American style mostly from the forties to the early sixties. I also have that eternal struggle of not knowing if I want to dress up as a “good” or a “bad” girl. One book everyone needs to read: Bram Stoker's "Dracula”. It’s spooky, sexy and thrilling. A song that represents my life: That’s probably “Hairspray”. “What gives a girl power and punch? Is it charm, is it poise? No, it’s hairspray!”

I’m totally addicted to: Red lipstick and classic horror. The beauty product I can’t live without: Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer 100+ Dry-Touch Sunscreen. (I’m secretly a vampire.) My favourite and is: Lilli Diamond of California and Catalina Swimwear. My favourite TopVintage item is: My red wicker bag I bought a couple of years ago.

Lovely Legend,

Audrey Hepburn Every time we see her, we gasp for breath. Such a beauty‌ If we only bore the smallest resemblance to her. Just the tiniest one‌ The stunning Audrey Hepburn. Actress, icon and a good person. A source of inspiration for us. Yes, of course because of her timeless, sophisticated style, but also because of who she was. Petite, but impressive in character. Persevering, dedicated and a hard worker.

There is an in everyone of us! Don’t take life too serious,

laugh, believe in pink,

in miracles and there always will be another day tomorrow!

"Happy girls are the prettiest!"

Wow, we are so surprised by the great amount of inspiring names for our online magazine, more than 1000! Thank you so much for your help. One of them caught our eye immediately It’s a word we use a lot, even since the beginning of TopVintage. It stands for femininity, fun, the wow-factor and elegance. And we keep it in mind by everything we do ;-) It’s definitely very TopVintage-like and therefore we couldn’t think of a more perfect name! Severa of you mentioned this fabulous Several name. On our Facebook page you can see how we have drawn the raffle to select a winner. Congratulations Wendy van den Heuvel! We look forward to meeting you and your friend. To be continued...
