Yellow Pumps, Polka Dots, and the Spring Equinox

There may be snow on the ground here in Boston, but it's officially spring, which means my least favorite season is finally on its way out. Maybe it's just me, but during the winter I don't feel like I can dress as my normal self. I'm covered in multiple layers, which usually consist of either [...]

A Cabbage Rose, Vintage Houndstooth, and the Beginning of Spring

It looks like winter is finally coming to an end and what could be more symbolic of the coming of spring than flowers? My boyfriend, Anthony, bought me this jaw-dropping hair flower for Christmas from Sophisticated Lady Hair Flowers, and I can already tell its opened the door to a quick obsession with hair accessories.

It's an image from 1955 of the trolley station across from my apartment building. This trolley is still running and I take it [...]

1950’s Florals, a Touch of Yellow, and a Bit of Class

I'm a big proponent of mixing modern with vintage, especially since vintage tends to be on the pricier side. Fortunately, there's a plethora of reproduction clothing companies out there and my latest discover was this 1950s Sleeveless Patchwork Vintage Dress by OUGES. Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of the color white. I find that it tends to [...]
