Vintage Boutique Experience

Vintage style of the 1940s and 50s is now appearing amongst our fashion of today and becoming more popular, thanks to celebrities and current fashion trends. 

 


There was something very special about the way women presented themselves during the 1940's and 1950's. Women of those days were elegant, well presented and feminine. They had a very refined, put together look. 

The accompanying style of ladies hair and makeup always matched their outfit. Well groomed perfection was achieved with porcelain skin, bright red lipstick, and strong arched, yet well defined eyebrows.

 

We can now re-create these looks. There are many books, information on the internet and also an abundance of Youtube tutorials, offering step by step instructions on how to do your own hair and make-up. 

 

For the past 3 years MisKonduct Klothing has offered a styling service to their wonderful customers. Many hair and makeup workshops have been held to teach you the basics so you can recreate these styles for yourself at home.  

Whether you wish to look the part with victory rolls and pincurls, or waves and hairflowers, we are here to help you. To perfect those perfect wings and of course that sultry red pout. 

 

Classes are held on a Sunday afternoon and set into 2 parts, of course always with a glass of bubbles in hand (not me of course, thats not until afterwards). I like to take you through some basic hair styles helping you along the way. Showing you how you can easily achieve a basic pinup or vintage style for an everyday look.

After this we break for a bit, have some more bubbles and nibbles and lots of giggles, and the best part shopping! Who doesn't love to shop with their girlfriends. Especially when you have the boutique to yourself. 

 

For the second part it is makeup. Here I shall take you through the basics of an everyday 40s makeup. Yes we even go through the tips for the dreaded winged eyeliner. Everyone is always worried about this part. But really, every single person always leaves with perfect wings, and that sexy red pout. 

 

So whether you grab some girlfriends and come along have fun and giggles, leave looking spectacular then go out for dinner. Or come on your own, (we always look after you) you will be sure to leave having a fabulous time and making new friends with other like minded ladies.

 

For the rest of the year we have a few dates set aside ready for our next series of workshops. 

The next one shall be held on the 23rd August at 2.30pm. More details shall be posted on both Miskonduct Klothing and Style by Divine facebook and Instagram pages in the coming days. 

The other 2 shall be October 18th and December 6th (both to be confirmed). 

If you have been thinking about doing one of our workshops, please get in contact. Places are limited and always fill fast. You can either contact me via this page on any of my contact details or email sales@miskonduct.com or ring the shop on 49613909.

Brooches, a necessary accessory.

Brooches, a necessary accessory. Brooches are not worn as often today, but in the 1940s they were a necessary accessory for any outfit. Worn on a suit lapel, blouse or dress. Generally they were bright and colourful; this was of course to brighten up a dull drab outfit, as coloured fabric wasn’t as readily available then. Popular shapes were flowers or animals, and made of just about anything, such as plastics, Lucite or rhinestones for evening wear.

Literally anything that could be pinned on, was. I am fortunate enough to have been given originals, my mother’s that she wore in the 50s and even luckier to have my Nannas from the 30s. But I do have my fair share of quirky reproduction as well. These I wear on a daily basis, on scarves, blouses and have even pinned onto jumpers or my overalls. Occasionally I have pinned them into my hair.

Today brooches are starting to make a comeback, even in some of the mainstream shops. At MisKonduct we have  a quite a large range to choose from. The vintage reproduction range is made from coloured rhinestones, they are quite popular and authentic looking as well.

Some of these are able to be doubled as hair clips or added to a chain for a necklace. The coloured crystals give them that true vintage feel, some of the brooches are almost an authentic replica of marcasite or aurora borealis There is also the quirky Erstwilder collection. These are very popular for all age groups.

They are fun and colourful and are lovingly designed in Australia. Made from a resin, hand assembled and hand painted. Inspiration is taken from the vintage, retro, rockabilly and pinup scenes. Some of the ranges are limited edition, making them a collector’s piece. At an average price of $30 they are a perfect added accessory or even gift idea.
