  Now that I'm a full time blogger, I can't wait to spend more time this summer with some of my patterns from Mrs. Depew. Mrs. Depew Vintage carries a large selection of rare reproduction vintage patterns in PDF format for home sewers. Some vintage sewing patterns can be ten times more expensive than the fabric used to create the garment so it's such a blessing to have affordable options from Mrs. Depew. See her blog for updates on new patterns and sew-a-long projects and check out her website and etsy shop to get copies of her fantastic patterns. 

 See my tiki dress and swimsuit using Mrs. Depew patterns.

Flashback Summer is a vintage blog written by a fellow Missouri gal, Emileigh. Emileigh blogs her personal style through vintage and vintage inspired outfits, lifestyle and wonderful words of advice and encouragement in her tips and tutorials. Her recent sweater makeover has me searching the thrift stores for some knits to bring back to life. Also see her awesome guest post on Va-Voom Vintage on 7 Ways to Spice up a Pair of Vintage Gloves

collar city brownstone banner

Collar City Brownstone is one of my new favorite reads, written by Xenia who has a passion for historic restoration, romantic films, home decor and the beauty in all things vintage. I know that a lot of blogs tend to stick to one topic but I love when blogs like Collar City Brownstone (named for Xenia's gorgeous Queen Anne Victorian Brownstone home) aren't afraid to be eclectic and they do it well!  Xenia's blog truly has something to inspire everyone from vintage and historic home decor, beautiful foods, vintage fashion, movies and books....and don't forget a nice dash of actor, Richard Armitage!

voluptuous vintage vixen banner

We enjoyed my feature on Lexi's blog, Voluptuous Vintage Vixen in February. Every day, Lexi features one amazing plus sized woman on her blog, showcasing curves and inspiration for a "love yourself" attitude. When she's not blogging, she's working as a hair and makeup artist in Paris, encouraging women  to feel beautiful and rock their curves. See my review last month on Lexi's book, Decades of Style: A Step by Step Hair and Makeup Guide- 60s and 70s.
