This past week has been so crazy for me! Last weekend I attended a wedding for some high school friends in my home state of Michigan, and I decided that I simply must whip up a dress for the occasion. I’ve had the wedding on my radar for a while, but other things and procrastination… Continue reading Vogue 8811: A Dress for a Wedding
I know I’ve been hinting at this outfit for a while, but I finally got the chance to pull it out and wear the whole thing! This, friends, is a playsuit! Playsuits are vintage sets of clothing that were primarily worn during sports, at the beach, and for “play!” They range in number of pieces,… Continue reading Summer’s Last Hurrah: A Pink Playsuit!
Pink is not really one of my favorite colors. It’s not that I don’t like the color pink, it’s just not my color. You see, when you’re a twin, like I am, your parents tend to dress one twin in one set of colors, and the other in a completely different set. I got green… Continue reading Pretty in Pink and Navy
One of the things that held me back from posting these past couple of weeks has been my struggle with pin curls. I like pin curls, but the process is still a little hard for me, especially when the weather doesn’t cooperate. As much as I like pin curls, though, I really like my natural… Continue reading A Pop of Red Lipstick
Happy belated 4th of July! I’m back and posting on Tuesdays again! I couldn’t wait to post this outfit until Thursday, but I have a lot of great ideas and wonderful things to share with you in the coming weeks! But here’s what I wore on Independence Day!
Again, it’s been a busy week for me over in real-life-world! My husband and I are one day away from completing our move and being established completely in our new apartment! There are currently boxes all over the place, which has made everything (including getting dressed) that much more hectic. On top of that, we’ve… Continue reading Busy Days in the Life and Times
Two weeks ago my husband and I were visiting his parents in Iowa. We were there for a specific reason, along with visiting, but we managed to squeeze in some shopping and outfit picture taking. The theme? Windmills, of course!
My husband and I will be spending the next couple of weeks driving all over the Midwest to visit family, so I’d like to offer you a little primer on traveling and wearing vintage style. This is not just for vacations, but for all kinds of traveling! Of course, feel free to wear whatever you… Continue reading Vintage Style While Traveling
I’ve been sitting on this skirt for a while, because I was searching for the perfect occasion to wear it. I finally just decided to go for it and take some pictures for you, because it’s just too perfect! Isn’t it lovely? I think it’s an Italian scene, but it’s hard to tell. It has… Continue reading Summer’s Eve in the City
As the days warm and spring storms rush in, we can all feel it, the pull of summer! Hemlines rise, we trade our woolens and sweaters for sleeveless shirts and cotton skirts. I will put a disclaimer out here though, the warm weather makes me feel more like a late 40s, early 50s vibe that… Continue reading 4 Vintage Trends I’m Loving For Summer!
