Each feature includes an interview and a stunning photo shoot styled by author and stylist Nadia Barbaro and you will easily find yourself ooh-ing and ahh-ing over every shot.

Vintage Girls is the perfect accompaniment for an afternoon cup of tea and sweets, as it is a book that you really need to sit down to enjoy. This is not the kind of title that you want to flick through on the train; you’ll want to take your time with it and treasure it like one of your grandmother’s strings of pearls.

In today’s world where you can easily log onto Pinterest or Tumblr to see a stream of easy access fashion images, I love that a book like this exists. It’s a real treat and very well recommended.

Want a copy? You can get one of the limited edition hardcover copies for AUD$75.00 from Readings and each copy is signed and numbered by the author.

If you want to carry around a little pocket of beautiful, you can also find the eBook version on iTunes for US$19.99.

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
