VIVA LA VINTAGE

I AM ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED WITH VINTAGE CLOTHING!! I LOVE THE QUALITY, FABRIC, FEMININE CUTS AND BEAUTIFUL DESIGNS. EVERY TIME I PUT ON A VINTAGE PIECE I FEEL AS IF I'M IN THAT ERA! THE WOMEN BACK THEN WERE SO CLASSY AND BEAUTIFUL. I PICTURE THEM BAKING COOKIES WITH A FULL FACE OF MAKEUP IN A PLEATED DRESS WITH A BELT, HEELS AND FABULOUS PEARLS! HAHA

BTW - DID YOU KNOW THAT "VINTAGE CLOTHING" REFERS TO ANY CLOTHING THAT WAS PRODUCED FROM THE 1920s TO 1980s. ANYTHING PRIOR TO THE 1920s IS CONSIDERED ANTIQUE.
I HAVE REALLY BEEN IN THE MOOD TO DRESS UP LATELY! I FEEL SO INSPIRED THIS WEEK...TAKING PICTURES AND POSTING LIKE CRAZY! DON'T WORRY! THIS WON'T LAST LONG! I HAVE MY MOMENTS! HAHA TONIGHT I JUST FELT LIKE DRESSING UP SO I PUT ON THIS VINTAGE DRESS AND MY DAUGHTER AND I WENT INTO THE HALLWAY OF MY BLDG. I AM ALWAYS STANDING IN MY PICTURES SO I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO TAKE THE MAJORITY OF THESE SITTING. THE LIGHTING IS NOT THE BEST SO I APOLOGIZE FOR THE QUALITY. I FOUND THIS VINTAGE DRESS AT A NEW THRIFT STORE, THE SHOES ARE BY POUR LA VICTOIRE, NECKLACE WAS GIFTED AND EARRINGS ARE FROM F21. HOPE YOU LIKEY AND VIVA LA VINTAGE (LONG LIVE VINTAGE)!! 
WITH LOVE,
KIAH
