Evelyn Wood

Welcome my ladies!!

My name is Evelyn Wood and I’m the creator of A Lady’s Life, which I just launched in May 2016!!!

A blog for women who enjoy creating glamor and ladylike vintage style in their lives. Trained in fashion design and dressmaking, I run my own fashion label where I produce glamorous, authentic vintage reproduction clothing from the 1930’s 40’s and 50’s.

Being an avid op-shopper ( that is : thrift shopper) and general rescuer of old clothing, I also buy and sell vintage and retro clothing and most of all I LOVE to play dress ups in my everyday life!  This style permeates my whole life,  and as a consequence, I get asked ALOT of questions!

I would say I have been accused of being a ‘Lady’ my whole life!

It first came as a surprise to me when other women, would ask me questions like “Where did you get that fabulous outfit from?”, ” How do you pull off that style?” Where do you find all these pieces?”. Essentially I was being asked “How do I do what you what you do?” And almost always the conversations ends with the other person saying

” I wish I could do that”
