Like a Beatles fan holding her Vinyl record from the sidelines of the scrum of screaming girls, or the girl sitting on the bleachers with no date at Prom I have often found myself looking forlornly at lovely ladies effortlessly pulling off vintage looks and wishing I too could be like these beautiful creatures!
I certainly own some lovely vintage pieces, like this Wartime Ball Gown:
Jane Austen events! But if I am to truly embrace vintage living I think there are some things I need to do: for a start I have been looking in the fabulous DaddyOs website for more vintage outfits I can wear to work and to more casual events, as most of my vintage dresses are party numbers that only get out once in a blue moon. During the week I look decidly non-vintage at work: no make-up, hair not done, any bombshell worth her salt would be disgusted! this is partly because I go to the gym most days (See Goal no.15) , Im going to have to get more inventive!
I also think attending more vintage events would be a great way to meet new friends, so I have signed up to the vintage forum Vintage Schmintage in the hope of meeting some lovely people and finding inspiration! and in true vintage style I am joining the WI (Goal no.16) in September to further continue my love of baking and sewing, I couldnt be more excited! also I feel I simply must, at long last, learn how to do Victory Rolls properly! and have my eye on this Vintage Hairstyles book.
So, postive steps towards goal number 42!
