EVERY WITCH WAY : An Interview With Vicky "Vix" Brearley Of Vintage Vixen

I can't imagine what I could present here that would be more fun than this... an interview with one of the most stylish free-spirits on the planet, Vicky Brearley aka "Vix".

"I don't follow fashion and if I look ridiculous so what? Not being noticed and blending in with the crowd is my idea of hell. A day without dressing up is a day wasted." -Vix


Visually, Vix is a dizzily delicious display of psychedelic eye candy, but it's her warm, boundless personality that had me bursting with energy hours after our chat. You'll see... she is such a breath of fresh air!

My hope is that, in listening to Vix discuss the wonderfully whacky, rock & roll lifestyle she's created with Jon, her equally funky-cool partner of 20 years, you will be inspired to go further in crafting the kickass life of your dreams...


Hop on over to Vintage Vixen for a magickal ride through Vix's hippie trippy, patchwork-punctuated, glamorously groovy world.

  1. Wicked interview you kick ass witch!!! I adore Vix and her spirit is just as free and bright in real life as she is on her blog and in this interview. You sound like a rare bird yourself living in the superficial world of Los Angeles. I only lasted 3 years there, I'm happy there are people like you still there trying to change things up. Thanks for sharing our precious Vix with the world!!!

  6. I just popped over from Vix's mention. How exciting it's the first time I've seen Vix speak. If it's possible to admire someone more than I already did I do now. I loved Vix's approach and opinions to life. It's so true about the community we are a part of, I love it every day there is support and encouragement from like minded people it's magical.

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching the interview and your enthusiasm as well. Love and happiness from your newest reader.

  19. I have to disagree with your statement about your accent - I love it and wish that there were more regional accents as there were when I was a youngster.
