Hi,

I’m Maureen. This is me on a sunny day in our garden. I live near Brussels with my two cats Flo & Lou.

I created Vintage Styled, out of my passion for vintage. I’ve been collecting vintage clothes for nearly 17 years now. It hasn’t always been the perfect relationship but it still puts a smile on my face when I think about all those crazy outfits I wore and felt so confident about at the time.  Despite of my many outfit mistakes, I still love mixing and matching vintage with contemporary pieces. When I’m not blogging, I’m managing my little vintage shop. We ( My seamstress Gilberte & I) visit visit weekly markets where we sell on sunday. You can find us on a regular basis @  Brussels vintage marketRecreation hall & Swan market Antwerp . When I’m not selling, I’m buying, that’s the fun part, right?  I visit a lot of flea markets and hand pick markets, just to find that special gem.  I find it fun to find more ecological alternatives in clothing, household stuff, cosmetics and food too. I try to run a plastic free household. When I’m not doing either of the above I’m discovering new music and books or working on this blog and youtube channel ;).

In this picture I’m wearing : A vintage seventies blouse, vintage cardigan & original vintage Mexican earrings from the seventies combined with a Zara jeans ( working on finding a more ecological brand) & shoes from Tamaris ( had them for ages- working on finding ecological – western produced /shoe brands as well. )

Happy you’re here with me to share this joyful journey !

Maureen
