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…

Stepping Into Spring

Still going through the late winter/early spring post backlog, folks. And still sticking with the pink theme! My friend Sara (@iliveinmylab on instagram) decided she had too many pink 1940s suits and that since this one had a bit of alteration needed to make it work well, she would sell it to me. I do…

Shocking Pink

Here I thought I’d be needing to apologize for unseasonal posts as I’m still catching up on sharing pictures from March, but unfortunately for me the weather (and accordingly, my outfit choices) hasn’t changed much! The main difference is that there are now some leaves on the trees to get in the way of the…

All the Colors

I’ve started doing a monthlong vintage challenge on Instagram (#thevintagefashionchallenge) that consists of a series of prompts to share a bit about one’s vintage collection and inspiration. Today’s prompt is favorite color, so I thought I’d share this outfit on instagram and here on the blog. I tend to say that my favorite color is…

Of Hats and Uncooperative Weather

Spring in New England is lovely, but the weather is rather… fickle. I’m eyeing the forecast for this weekend and ordering up a couple large umbrellas on Amazon Prime in case it decides to be torrential downpours. I’m REALLY hoping it doesn’t do that, but a 60% chance of rain and Murphy’s Law probably means…

In My Sunday Best

Religion and politics are, naturally, things that a person tries to avoid discussing with strangers. And in a way, all of you lovely readers are strangers… at least, although you may know me (or the bits of a character of me that writes this blog), I certainly don’t know all of you. And I am…

Gettin Real Sick of Your Nonsense, Winter…

Some days, it’s Just Too Cold Out to go take pictures outside, and I’m stuck looking for a room with halfway decent natural light in my house. Clearly, this room isn’t it… It’s okay, though, I’m sure it will warm up some day, and then I can take pictures outside! I’d originally picked out different…

Confection in Pink

I swear I don’t know where the time has gone this year. I think “Oh, surely I just posted a few days ago, I’ll have another post up soon”, and then the month is only over and I’ve only posted once. Quite the mystery. Anyway, continuing to work through the photo backlog not entirely in…

Think Springy Thoughts

Now that I’ve found a skirt that matches my blue suit jacket, I’ve developed an overwhelming desire to wear it with everything. So, uh, you might be seeing a lot of this suit around the blog in the coming weeks. Sorrynotsorry. We had a bit of mild weather at the end of January that put…
