Fashion Challenge: Vintage Coat

Retro Beach Attire

Retro Beach Attire

During my 10 Decades in 10 Days Fashion Challenge, I experienced first hand what people may have worn during summers in the past. As I had two beach trips planned during the ten day period, I had to come up with beach-appropriate-but-still-vintage-inspired outfits! Needless to […]

As the title indicates, I gave myself an extended fashion challenge. For ten days, I would wear outfits inspired by the decades between 1910 and 2000. Realistically, I couldn’t aim for historical accuracy, as most of my “historical” clothing is homemade or thrifted. I also […]

Fashion Challenge: “Jresses”

Fashion Challenge: “Jresses”

I am admittedly a vintage denim addict. It’s not just the name brands or current hipness that attracts me. I love the softened feel and super utilitarian vibe of these pieces, as well as their availability at thrift stores! This addiction sometimes leads me to […]

Fashion Challenge: Vintage Blouses

Fashion Challenge: Vintage Blouses

We love vintage blouses, especially when we find them at thrift stores in great condition! Although bright and sometimes flamboyant, these blouses are just begging to be paired with neutral wardrobe staples. This is a great way to create vintage-inspired looks for today! We had […]

Fashion Challenge: Wannabe French

Ooh la la! I have been loving all the stripes popping up in magazines, stores, and my own closet as spring approaches! Using thrift store finds, I put together a few outfits in deference to the French! I may not be able to travel across […]
