Welcome everyone! My name’s Lark (or Bahar, I go by both), and I’m a vintage loving gal whose life-long appreciation for 1930s-1960s musicals has led to a life fully immersed in old movies, photography, music, fashions, and hairstyles. I’m currently a graduate student pursuing my Masters at the University of Arizona, so perusing Etsy with a student budget in mind, I focus on creative ways to mix true vintage and modern reproduction as seamlessly and authentically as possible. I love experimenting with vintage hair styling and you’ll never find me with my hair unset. I’m constantly striving for an authentic 1940s-1950s look embellished with modern brands like Pinup Girl Clothing and Bernie Dexter, and am hoping to start sewing in the future in order to create my own skirts and dresses.
When I’m not climbing up the steep hill that is graduate school, you’ll find me with my nose buried in a book, dancing, singing, modeling, marathoning Disney movies or Harry Potter, or in Disneyland. My favorite films and TV Shows include anything Marx Brothers or Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, The Dick Van Dyke Show, I Love Lucy, Singin’ in the Rain, Pride & Prejudice, Cheers, Turning Pointe, The Philadelphia Story, etc. (honestly, I could go on for hours about the things I’m obsessed with…so I’ll stop here.)
A few quick notes about myself: I spent the first ten years of my life living in Istanbul, Turkey, but currently reside in Tucson, Arizona. I’ve struggled with an extreme case of eczema my entire life that is currently (thankfully) in a relatively complacent stage, but it still influences my lifestyle. Aside from dancing, I can’t work out as breaking a sweat aggravates this condition (and yet I live in Arizona…….I know). I’m also a strong proponent of intersectional feminism and body positivity of all sorts, and I would like to keep this blog a safe and fun place for everyone where women build each other up instead of tearing each other down.
So glad to have you here! I’m excited to start sharing my experiences with you, and love sharing (and receiving) fashion tips, hair styling techniques, reviews, and general vintage appreciation!
Thank you for visiting! Come again,
Miss Lark Bahar
PS – Huge shout out to Steph for helping me format my blog! I’m not in the least bit savvy with this, so bear with me!
