vintage superheroine

A few mornings ago I happened upon This Old Life, and with mouth nearly agape I scrolled though posts of this adorable woman wearing what looks like vintage 1930s clothing, only get this, she MAKES these clothes. Either from scratch or from clothing she has or thrifts. Um, yeah. Makes the stuff you see here, like even the freaking gloves. I can't even begin to imagine having that kind of talent and skill. And should we talk about her hair? Pulling off just about the hardest hairstyle to accomplish, ever? Oh AND she has a toddler. Basically, she's a superhero; at least in my world.

DEFINITELY a super heroine!! And cute to boot! Can't believe she has a toddler either. Man, I need to learn how to sew, big time.

Gahhh. This... wow. I wish I could master finger waves and sewing. I feel so untalented right now.

I think I'll tackle the finger waves before the sewing. And definitely before I have a toddler.

I've been following her for a while now and yeah, awesome ensembles!!! Will never be that accomplished at sewing.

OMG, Finger Waves AND a toddler?!? She is indeed a mythical creature. LOVE THIS.

Angela said...

um...yeah. i kind of hate her. (and by that, i mean "i'm insanely jealous and weeping bitterly because i will never, ever, not in a million trillion years, be that awesome.")

Love your blog, your posts are always very interesting and the vintage you have in the shop is to die for! I have just started my own blog and hopefully will be wearing some of my many vintage items in outfit posts soon! Take a look! http://thesefoolishthings94.blogspot.co.uk/

good gawd! my thought process was like-

1) dam, she has an amazing collection of vintage clothes, and shut up with that hair!
2) Say what!? she MADE all of it!
3) EVEN the gloves! :0
4) and she has a TODDLER! shut the front door!!! I have a toddler, I'm shamed.

Heroine indeed!

Nabby is a wonderwoman. I've seriously considered paying her to do nothing but sit and sew 24/7 because I can never wait to see what she does next.

Oh, I'm so proud! The sailor dress in the first photo was from my shop!

It started out a pretty nubby knit with embroidered flowers on the chest. Sold as is because it had a tiny stain and I couldn't believe it when she showed me the end product.

True perfection and talent. The definition of a superheroine.
