Call me Neno. I’m from Indonesia and I am a lover of vintage fashion and literature. I moved to Australia in 2017. I love and appreciate the beauty of vintage fashion, especially from the era of the 1950s. And I’m delighted to express my feelings on this subject with people around me through wearing vintage-inspired dresses every day. I usually post my favourite outfits on my Instagram account @nenoevans
In fact, before moving to Australia, I opened and ran a vintage dress shop on Instagram in Indonesia. I was thrilled with the response I received from other lovers of vintage fashion in my country. I wrapped and delivered hundreds of vintage dresses to their addresses and I hope this thing can continue here!
However, moving to Australia, I must start everything from scratch again. I’m starting off with My Vintage Sheila to greet other lovers of vintage fashion in Australia.
The love I feel for this kind of fashion has deepened to the point where I have decided to further my studies in fashion design and sowing via courses.
On this blog, I will share and discuss interesting things that I read and wear. Earlier in my life, I studied literature at University. I write poetry, though until now my poems remain neatly collected in my own private book of notes. It is not my intention to share these poems on my blog at present, but rather to discuss books that I read and think might be of some interest to you.
Aside from that, I also want to review and write about outfits, shoes and accessories that I wear. These things will be specifically vintage in their style and either produced during a previous era or today.
And finally, I will dedicate a special part of my blog to Indonesian language classes because I love the Indonesian language. In Indonesia, I worked as a professional Indonesian language teacher, teaching foreign students. I met many kinds of people from all different parts of the world, who came to Indonesia to study our language. (And because of that I also met my husband! Lol)
I truly enjoy this kind of work. And I will write a little about that experience. Furthermore, if you are interested in studying Indonesian, you can contact me through the contact information listed on this website. I would be delighted to become your online study friend!
You can also contact me through the contact information if you would like to collaborate with me on my fashion and book reviews.
That’s all for the opening of my new blog. I hope you enjoy it!
