About Style High Club

Hello and welcome to Style High Club!

Style High Club founder Lena Weber is a freelance  writer, editor and publisher specialising in all things vintage. She lives in North London with an ever growing collection of vintage bits and bobs including boxes full of 30s cigarette cards and 60s dinner plates.

In love with all things Beatles, Lena loves a good beehive and is mildly obsessed with the Rolling Stones WAGs.

She is also the founder and editor-in-chief of The Vintage Guide to London & QueensOfVintage.com.

BBC Homes and Antiques have called her ‘a vintage guru’.

Style High Club is a vintage blog featuring personal style, vintage news, how-to-guides, shopping tips and unusual style muses. Find out more about Lena Weber on Google+.

“Lena is at the forefront of the vintage scene, both online where her writing and social media management keep everyone updated, and in real life; where she frequents all the coolest retro events and introduces newcomers to key players.”
Katie Antoniou, editor at Run Riot, blogger, PR and stylist

“It’s been a real pleasure to work with such an enterprising and imaginative editor. Lena has genuine passion for her work and her insatiable creativity has led QueensOfVintage down many exciting paths from Chanel Fash Mobs to coverage in Vogue. Inspiring an army of style-hungry ladies on a daily basis, Lena’s impeccable style and editorial vision has made QueensOfVintage a one-of-a-kind online magazine.”
Tara Gardner, Deputy Editor on InStyle.co.uk

” I’m Lena.  I was born in Southern Germany and moved to England many years ago, where – via a three year stint in Cornwall – I’ve ended up in London.

Despite my Teutonic genes (or because of perhaps?) I have been addicted to fashion from infancy.  I grew up in the Bermuda triangle of fashion, otherwise known as the Southern German countryside, where personality is rarely expressed through fashion.”

Luckily plenty of travelling and an acute obsession with the Beatles as a teenager opened my eyes to all things vintage, Sixties and tailored – phew!”

    Sunny Chen, your wish is my command:
    – I live in London
    – The day job is in science PR, and no, I have no clue about science whatsoever
    – I do hope to do work in fashion some day and have got a project coming up that might give me the chance to do so.

    Good luck with your studies, and I hope one day you will write for Vogue, just go for it!

    I’ve been coming here from time to time, cause I really enjoy reading about your eclectic but sophisticated taste…..
    but more than anything, I really love that sense of humor cleverly imbedded in your writings! 🙂

    To tell you a little bit about myself, I recently started working for this website called “roiworld” which is far from perfect at this moment…but hopefully it will be in the future..

    Often times I act as an advisor on American fashion, pop culture, etc…and the idea of “me” acting as an expert on American culture is just hilarious, but it sorta happened..

    I’m sure I’ll come back here soon, and I’ll tell you more then~!

    I have only now discovered your blog – quite why it has taken so long, I cannot explain other than to shrug and say “I’m a lazy sod!” – but it is love already.

    You have created such a beautiful space to dream and be inspired.

    Hey Lena! I absolutely love your blog, both for the pictures/fashion bits and the ramblings and humour. I especially like reading the entry where you said your friend threatened to dress like a Liverpool WAG if you didn’t post Berlin pics. I’ve always dreamt of going to Berlin, what’s Germany like? I currently live in Liverpool (originally from Los Angeles… weird I know), studying here and my girlfriend is here (studying too). What’s your opinion of it? Fashion wise? I think it’s pretty awful in that sense, and I’m hopefully moving to London in the fall. Oh, and if you’ve never heard of an American band called “The Like”, check them out! They have the kind of style you’d dig, and good sound too (very 60’s). xx

    – Max

    Hi Max, thanks so much for your kind words!

    What’s Germany like? Mmm, depends where you go I’d say! I really love Berlin, it’s a very cool, avant-garde city but then again I also like the more rural South for the landscape and food. Hamburg is meant to be amazing too but I’ve not been since I was a child.

    Oh I know what you mean about Liverpool style-wise but I think there’s still plenty of really nice (vintage) shops there. You’ll love London though when you guys are moving down!

    Yes, I’m really into The Like – brilliant style!x

    Hi Lena! First time I read your “about”. I love the idea of Southern Germany as the Bermuda triangle of fashion!! 🙂 (There are some Bermuda triangle of fashion in France too!)
