California Trip – Part 2

This post has been sitting in my drafts since December, and the events happened even longer ago than that, but since it is late March and just keeps snowing, I think it seems as good a time as any to recap the second leg of our California honeymoon trip – a visit to Disneyland! We…

Here Be Dragons

Right before I broke my foot, I had started daydreaming of knitting a vintage fingering weight colorwork sweater. Not the quickest of projects, to be sure, but it seemed like it would be a great way to get through the long winter evenings. And then I broke my foot and suddenly I was faced with…

California Trip – Part 1

It’s well and truly November, cold and dark and leafless outside, so it seemed like now was as good a time as any to catch up with some pictures of our visit to sunny California back in (yikes) May. Doug and I made the trip for our honeymoon, and got a chance to do lots…

Where I′ve Been

It has been awfully quiet around here. I know. There are lots of reasons for this. The weather is too hot, the weather is too rainy, I’m tired, I don’t know what to write (probably a topic for a post itself, heh)… but most recently, the reason I haven’t been blogging, or in fact doing…

On The Dot

This large blue felt hat is the second hat I brought back from my Busia’s collection when I visited California this spring. (See the other hat here) Navy is one of those colors I keep accidentally acquiring and then I don’t have the first idea what to wear it with, so fortunately I already had…

Put a Peplum on It

I don’t like altering vintage. I tend to figure, if a thing made it 70 years to get to me, why should I change it if it doesn’t fit my body? Surely there’s someone else out there who it will fit. However, some pieces are beyond the “someone else can wear it” point. Some are…

Hidden Treasure

More pictures from earlier in the summer, and as I’m reviewing them, I suddenly want to reprise this combination for a late-summer look now that it’s almost cool enough to consider wearing suits again. I was very taken with Trashy Diva’s Pirate Treasure print this spring, and I bought my first full-price items from their…

Summer Sheer

When we were in California for our honeymoon, we spent a couple nights with my extended family. The conversation turned, as it often does, to family memories, and my aunt suggested that I might have a look at a few hats she had stashed away that were her mother’s — my Busia’s. (A note —…

Spring Floral

This is the last set of pictures I have from before the wedding, so I promise I’ll be following up with more wedding and honeymoon photos next! And to be honest, I was doubting whether or not to share these at all, since I wasn’t entirely happy with how they turned out. This ensemble is…

The Tale of a Hat

This winter, I struck up an instagram friendship with another wonderful lady in the vintage community (Eliza, aka @vintagerosegirl) over our shared love of hats. We discussed preferred styles, hats that we would buy if they weren’t so expensive, and sent each other links to excellent hats that we’d seen. Now, Eliza had been eyeing…
