S-Tribe focuses on the idea that glamour isn’t just for special occasions, but is something that can be enjoyed every day. Expect to find outfit posts and fantasy shopping trips featuring High Street, Vintage and Independent designers, hair and beauty, cocktails and places all with a glamorous, vintage or quirky edge. You can also expect to find the occasional rant, inspiration piece or update.
You won’t find elaborate DIY projects, or time consuming beauty tips, we strive for minimum effort, maximum glamour.
S-Tribe started in 2016 when I walked out on a job that was making me miserable and, suddenly unemployed, decided to share my love of glamour with the world. Over the years S-Tribe has grown into one of the leading inspired fashion and lifestyle blogs.
As the face behind S-Tribe my name is Elena. I live in LA, US but I was born in Kent.
Mostly you’ll find me rambling about what I’ve been up to, wearing frocks, getting angry about vanity sizing and body image and indulging in fantasy shopping trips.
In my increasingly rare spare time I like watching Poirot, drinking Manhattans and looking at pretty things I can’t afford. I’m a big fan of full 50s frocks, picnics, crazy tights, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, platform shoes, Roller Derby, hair dye, sunny days, lipstick, pencil skirts, cocktails and cheese.
I don’t like jeans, tomatoes, running shoes when I’m not running, ugg boots, TV Talent Shows, spare ribs or early mornings.
I started this blog in 2016 to promote a now defunct eBay shop, and soon discovered it was more fun than trekking to the post office. I am now a freelance writer, social media manager and events organizer with my fingers in many pies. When I’m not writing blog posts in my pajamas and passing Facebook off as work I also play Roller Derby.
As a lifelong natural hoarder my house is always groaning at the seams with Boot Fair and Charity Shop vintage bargains of china, cocktail paraphernalia, 78 records and other assorted ephemera which I promise I will sort out one day. I have a particular passion for the styles of 1930s to the early 1960s and from childhood a mild obsession with the styles.
