ABOUT

Hello, I'm Little Miss Doo Wop, a 30 year old pin up girl living in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, UK. Welcome to my little corner of the internet. 

It's no secret to those who know me best that I have never had a conventional sense of style. I have always enjoyed trying out new looks and reinventing myself; I have had countless different looks over the years (some good, some, epic fails of titanic proportions!). So in early 2014, I decided that I would make a permanent change and adopt a look that I have always loved no matter what stage in my life I was at - pinup.

Over the last 2 years, I have been working towards becoming a 'full time pinup' - whatever that means?! I have spent hours practicing vintage hair and make up, building up my pinup wardrobe and perfecting my modelling skills at photo shoots. I am a huge fan of social media and I spend hours taking inspiration from the pinup community; learning new things, speaking to new people and finding my style. I am a fan of all kinds of vintage inspired fashions. Usually, you can find me sporting classic 1950's or Rockabilly styles. I also had a 1920's inspired wedding!

I have a real love of swing music from the 1940's and would love to learn to jive someday. My Husband Spencer and I live in a Georgian house, so antique hunting and reading blue plaques on old buildings is a big part of my life! We have a WW2 Air Raid shelter in our back garden which I plan on turning into a cocktail bar someday! I also love history and have an obsession with the Titanic (no really, I have blueprints and wreck reports and everything!).

I started this blog in 2014 as a way to chronicle my pinup journey, yet more recently, I have been lucky enough to do pinup clothing reviews for a number of companies, including Weekend Doll, Lady V London, Voodoo Betty's Boutique and Dolly & Dotty and I hope to do many more in the future. I am also a Brand Ambassador for Lady Luck's Boutique.

I am a petite woman, at 5ft 2in. I have zero curves, so I will be bringing pinup fashions to your from the perspective of a 'slight' frame - something which has its many challenges! So if you also have the figure of a teenage boy...welcome! This will be totes up your straza!

Vintage and pinup have truly enriched my life over the last 2 years and I really hope that my blog is helpful to people in the vintage community, new and old.
