Best of 2016- Roundup!

Oh 2016, you have certainly been an interesting year! At the very end of 2015, I was contemplating jumping head first into vintage fashion, and in the beginning of 2016, started this blog!

Its first iteration was a tumblr blog (please don’t go looking for it :p), and then in May, I moved to WordPress! I’m excited about all that I have accomplished over the past year, and wanted to share some highlights from 2016!

5. A Little Slice of Americana

Right before the 4th of July this year, my husband and I moved from one side of the city to another. In the bustle, I decided to post some pictures of patriotic fabric, some of it looked almost vintage. It’s mostly donated fabric, so perhaps it is vintage!

This fall, I had fun dressing up in the colors of the turning leaves. You really loved this post, including my fun handbag!
