1940s Glamour

I got this dress from Plato's Closet, and I knew when I saw it I had to get it because it instantly reminded me of something from the 40s. Lately I've noticed myself becoming in love with the decade and seeing as though I had this dress, I couldn't help but play around with some glamour. Aside from my dress, I'm wearing a spoon bracelet my aunt gave me for Christmas, which I couldn't love more; and my earrings are from Forever 21. Also, the vintage items like my brush, perfume bottle, and magazine are all items I've collected from antique stores and flea markets :)

Update

I am finally back on this blog again! And it has been so long since I’ve last written. But now that I’m on break for the summer I’m hoping to update regularly.  Since my last post though I’ve had a while to think about things and I’ve realized that this blog doesn’t have to be solely vintage. I’ve noticed that my love for the sixties has sort of dwindled in the past year or so, and that's ok. My love for vintage things is like a kaleidoscope and that I go in and out of obsessing over. I feel that the word vintage always has a way of finding its way back to me and ends up inspiring me in some way, shape, or form. Although I've now come to terms with the music and fashions of today, there is no doubt the sixties will always hold a special place in my heart.

Recently, however, I have found a new love for the fashions and styles of the 40s, and I will be expressing that love to you in my next post! The picture above is just a few of the odds I've collected recently that reminded me of this era!

Also, here are just a few lovely things in my life lately:
1. Cover Girl
One of my goals this summer has been to watch more classic movies! Now that I've been more into the fourties I figured there would be no better way to start than watching Cover Girl, one of Rita Hayworth's most famous movies! When I look at her I honestly don't know how such a flawless person existed.
 2. Jelly Shoes
Got some new jelly shoes the other day and I am so excited to wear them out!
3. Beyonce Pencils
One word...WANT.
4. Elastic Heart-Sia
This song is SO GOOD. After seeing the music video, I feel it gives off such a powerful vibe. I guess that's why I always think I'm a dancer when I listen to it! 
5. Crepes
I found another new love recently, and that is for crepes! Recently I went to this lovely little French cafe with my aunt and got this delicious crepe. Definitely going to try these out more often!
