Welcome on my personal style & fashion blog ‘Retro Sonja’! On this page I will tell you a little bit more about myself.
I’m a Dutch red head of 24 years, born and raised in Haarlem, but currently living in Amsterdam, and loving it!
My blog was born on May 6th 2012. I started blogging, because I really like fashion and I liked the idea of sharing this with others and getting feedback. I really feel like I learned a lot from blogging and my style has very much improved because of it. Also, I love receiving comments from my readers and followers! I photograph with a Canon 700D. For my outfits I use a 50mm f/1.8 lens and for other posts I sometimes use my 18-55mm lens.
My style is best described as ‘feminine and retro, with a modern twist’. I get most of my inspiration from the 50’s. I really love the glamorous style of this era. Also 60’s, 40’s, 30’s and 20’s fashion appeal a lot to me. My outfits are not always directly inspired by the 50’s, because I also like to combine older styles with a more modern style. But they will always be feminine, a characteristic of the common 50’s style which is really important to me. When I feel feminine in an outfit, I instanty feel better. Always! And that’s what I like about fashion: you can either decide to let your mood determine your outfit or decide to let your outfit determine your mood!
Caro Emerald is my favorite singer in the whole wide universe. To me, she just has the most perfect voice there is. I might even say I’m one of her biggest fans. I’ve already seen her live 15 times and I still love it!
Well, that’s all! If there’s anything more you’d like to know, you can always ask!
