vintage, vintage, vintage

Well, school has started, textbooks have been purchased, classes have been dropped, new friends have been made and fall clothes have hit the stores! I'm most fond of the last bit of that sentence. Of course here in Florida it doesn't feel like fall yet, so wearing jeans, boots and a sweater isn't a very realistic clothing least not just yet. A while ago, when it was still summery and hot, I made several dresses out of hideous things I'd found in my closet and all I have to say is ask your mother before you rip up an old 1980's dress that's been sitting in the closet for years and years. It could be a designer dress that also happens to be pure silk (like in my case)! Oh well, what's done is done........

Two Saturday's ago I had one of those perfectly wonderful days that make you thankful for all things vintage. A breakfast of homemade biscuits and honey from our bee hives, wearing 100% vintage, dinner at Cabo's, and a big band concert with my lovely mother, my grandfather Pop and his lovely friend Helen. I have to say that I also won a bet with my sister (not being fond of vintage wear, she bet me that no one would complement me on my outfit.....I don't mean to gloat, but 4 compliments later I had in my possession exactly one dollar!).

So tonight the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah starts and I can smell the challah and the noodle kugel cooking...yummmm :)
It's been a day of ironing tablecloths, polishing candlesticks and baking carrot cake. Oh and school too..haha! This year when we have apples and honey, we'll know that the honey came from our own front yard!

I hope y'all have a joyful, vintage day - xoxo


  1. Wearing 100% vintage~! You do it beautifully!
    Oops on the silk dress!

  2. Hi! Thanks for the comment - 100% vintage = what I love! Yeah, I've learned my lesson about random cutting and sewing!

  3. I have to say that it looks better now than it did before, so all's well that end's well! Besides . . . I wore it to my 10th high school reunion. Not much chance it would have gotten worn again!
