If you are not familiar with Vintage Life Magazine then get familiar! It's all pretty much in the title folks! It's a stellar Mag for those interested in anything vintage related.
Now as a plus size lovely myself I am always pleased when publications decide to use plus size models. Especially on the cover and especially when it is not a part of a "Size" edition or because it is an article specifically related to being plus size. Not that I think that that is a bad thing at all, because I do not. More, I think it is a case that it is nice to see plus size women being represented as just a part of the tapestry of females that make up our great globe.
I also love to see when magazines use "alternative" models ie; anyone with tattoos, piercings, body modification or anything else outside the norm, which is another box Madame Hughes aka Coco Fierce ticks!
As a female with ink and piercings who think other women with ink and piercings happen to look awesome it's also nice to see that scope of ladies being accepted into a more traditional standard of beauty.
The vintage scene, and the rockabilly scene in particular is of course more accepting if not encouraging for people to express themselves in different ways. From fellas with bright red over the top pompadours to ladies sporting full sleeves of tats all the way to conservative fellas in tweed suits and mummys who knit 1940's baby clothes and can their own preserves there is room for everyone in the vintage loving scene and that's one of the many things that makes me love it so.
So check out this months Vintage Life Magazine or get it on your mobile!
