Have you seen the appalling state of 'vintage' blogs and websites these days? By that I mean the huge number out there on the internet that haven't been updated for 5, 6, 7, 8 years or worse. Blog roll pages have turned into nothing much more than depressing lists of the neglected and forgotten, the infuriatingly ad-ridden, or just dead links to nowhere. The blogs themselves no longer just talk about vintage - they have become vintage themselves. What a waste. That's why great vintage blogs should be highlighted and celebrated, as they are here.
To be fair, there was a huge craze for vintage between around 2012-2018 and during that time a large number of vintage-related blogs were created, often using free blogging platforms. Creating and posting regular fresh content isn't easy at all and its hardly surprising that some blogs just simply ran out of steam and because they are using free web platforms there is no incentive to close accounts.
Despite all, after clicking on dead link after dead link, or enduring the classic vintage blog where the 'influencing' author describes in her latest blog post how she's looking forward to the rest of 2017 (really, it exists), there are few vintage blogs out there that are still regularly updated with insightly, well researched and entertaining content. These fine blogs deserve to be plucked out of endless lists of decaying dead links and brought to the attention of true vintage aficionados everywhere.
That is what this list is about then. This is my 2021 list of the vintage blogs and websites I admire most, written by some of the characters I admire most too. There are not many blogs featured here because there are very few that fit the criteria. I won't let this list go stale - these links are checked automatically for flatliners.
Thank you for reading this and may I wish you all a vintage-tastic 2013! I hope you like my choices...
The vintage fashion blog of Dominique de Merteuil. Truly informative, really well-researched, insightful, entertaining too. Oh, and great imagery thanks to Dominique's pro photographer hubby. What's not to love?!
I'd stare at this blog just for it's calmingly coordinated colour scheme, never mind the rest. All the work of Catherine who encourages all who gaze upon Vintage Frills to share her love of everything vintage - fashion, baking, home and lifestyle. Uplifting!
Sandra's RetroCat blog is a goldmine of style advice, tips, vintage shopping guides and fabulous 'how-to' articles. Don't miss it!
Almost certainly the most popular vintage fashion-related website ever with well over 3.5 million organic hits per month, Vintage Dancer isn't really a blog as such but was founded with one simple idea in mind: give the info-hungry enquirer the authoritative vintage fashion facts that they need. Simple yet effective. The brainchild of Debbie Sessions and hubby Oscar. Fabulous!
There's plenty of room at the Vintage Inn for the lover of all things vintage. Light, bright, informative and regularly re-fuelled with interesting posts, the Vintage Inn is all the work of Toronto-based Liz. Delve in soon!

The vintage fashion blog of the lovely Dominique de Merteuil. Truly informative, really well-researched, insightful, entertaining too. Oh, and great imagery thanks to Dominique's pro photographer hubby. More inspiring material than just one visit will allow. What's not to love?!
Fabulously bright and uplifting, Catherine's entertaining and informative content is regularly updated. Grab a coffee, sit down and delve in!
Based in Germany, Sandra revels in all things vintage with the vibrant RetroCat blog full of fabulously useful information, style and shopping tips. Bang up to date with fresh updates too. Recommended!
Better than a blog - a seemingly bottomless mine of vintage fashion information. As a fashion historian myself I can, and do, lose myself in 20th century style bliss courtesy of Debbie, Oscar and Vintage Dancer.
Delve into the stylishly vintage musings of Toronto-based Liz's warm and cosy Vintage Inn.
