I've always been a big fan of vintage. I was probably the only one of my peers who enjoyed antiquing and wished that I could wear A-line dresses everyday. I always joked that I was born in the wrong decade, and that I would have been much better suited to live in the 40's. Then I'm reminded of all the flaws that era had (gender inequality, even more male dominance than today, and the Betty Crocker ideal) and I realize I only was into their fashion!
Around the holidays I always find myself dreaming of a big, fancy Christmas party. I've never been to one where guests dress up, so it's on my list of things to do...#352: find friends who throw fancy parties.
I used to peruse eBay or Etsy for vintage finds, but then sites, like ModCloth, popped up and put a fun twist on vintage-inspired clothing! When I saw the Winterberry Tart coat, my mind immediately went to all the Christmas party dreaming I've done and I had fun putting together a little collage of the outfit it inspired.
Do you ever get invited to or throw fancy Christmas parties?
Are you inspired by vintage fashion or modern style?
