Does it take longer to get ready for me wearing Vintage? Yes, quite alot longer! I wet set my hair the night before which takes about 45 minutes and sleep on it, then I have to tackle it once the rollers are out, which means combing and brushing it into shape. This alone can take 20 minutes. However, I plan all my outfits the night before, so everything is ready and waiting for me. With modern wear, I'm so low maintenance I'm ready in 20 minutes from getting out of bed to getting out the door. Yes, I don't always wear vintage full on but when I do, I do it properly. Also, it's not so much the ironing the takes up all my time as the mending. I always have huge piles of mending!
