The People Who Lift Me Up

Jul 6, 2010

Vintage, yes that's me...

Mmmm so.... *wrinkling my nose up and doing a sideways smirk*  I will be 37 not too long from now, which most certainly qualifies me as vintage, BUT that is not what I mean to speak about....nup not that!

I just bought the most darling vintage hat! Oh I do so love collecting vintage hats but I also love to wear them, as you can see in the above photo.

Isn't the hat just wonderful?

I am not exactly the most traditional person when it comes to style (I bet you never would have guess that), however, I adore mixing the old with the new and I have always been tremendously fond of antiques and vintage items. I had such fun wearing my Mom's old 50s dresses when I was a teen with combat boots. Yes, I have been an oddity my entire life, giggling, and I was blessed enough to have parents who lovingly encouraged me to let my uniqueness shine through. In fact today I do believe I would still wear those 50's dresses IF I could still fit into them!

More vintage smiles for me below in my home.....
