The Unadorned Head



Somewhere in the recent past I turned some fashion corner and I feel quite incomplete with a hat. It's a good thing since there are so many hats in the world and not many people wearing them so I seem to have my pick of the litter, so to speak. Along with this, I seem to have turned away from flouncy skirts and dresses and have started gravitating more toward a slimmer line, right now in particular I am pretty obsessed with vintage wool pencil skirts. Such a grown up I have become! Today I am wearing all but one of my current vintage loves - 1940-50s sweater girl sweaters, 1940s round toe heels, pencil skirts and hats. The only thing left out is 1930s-40s sweater dresses, which I am saving for a future post.

Today I went to a vintage shop I visit regularly and found out about a vintage show next week that is not  not too far away, I have never been to a vintage show and I will certainly go to this one. Though I may not buy anything I think I will really like seeing the other people that go as they dress in vintage. I felt a slight tinge of unhappiness today for not having anyone close to me that loves dressing up as much as I do, but then I realize that is what the internet and blogs are for, there are so many girls who love what I love and thankfully through the magic of technology, I can "meet" them!
