A Rare Occasion in Non-Vintage


I get a lot of questions from readers- something often to the effect of "Do you wear vintage every day, even just to run to the store for milk?" Usually, I do wear vintage, even to run to the store or clean the house. It happens every once in a while, I step out into the world not dressed in vintage. I feel (and I may be wrong here) that you have to really go for it with the hair, makeup and outfit to get a complete, put-together look.

We had to run to Wal-Mart for a few things for our fishing trip tomorrow and since we were in a hurry and I wasn't feeling the hair and makeup thing, I put myself together in my occasional "mom clothes" I'm still wearing my Heyday Trousers and a vintage scarf because they're comfy and easy but the rest is a zip up hoodie and t shirt, hipster glasses in place of my cat eyes and some moisturizer.

 I also carried my new, enormous Transversion travel bag. See my whole collection here.

Living in Missouri, where people don't really dress up, sometimes it feels nice to go out and be unnoticed, just hurry up and get your shopping done and run home so you can sew.

  3. You are still sooo incredibly cute though!!! A family fishing trip sounds like a blast!

  4. The shoes are adorable. You both look so sweet!

  5. You look fab - love your headscarf :)

  6. Awww, you're the picture of cuteness!

    I get that same question often, too, and do reply that "yes, I wear head-to-toe vintage fashions all the time", but there are the odd days when - either by choice or necessity, I opt for more modern styles (days with lengthy medical appointments spring to mind, for example). Usually though, I still do vintage make-up. It's just become "my face" so to speak, and I don't feel pulled towards sporting modern make-up looks most of the time.

  7. Cute!

    I am still collecting clothes for my vintage wardrobe, so more of my clothes are modern, but I like to try and give it a vintage vibe with hair, make-up, or a hat.

  8. I like how the outfit is dressed down but still with a nod towards a vintage style. It looks really practical and comfortable too.

  9. Ha ha ha! I love that! "hurry up and go home and sew". Yes - I agree. Sometimes it is just nice to go out and not be stared at!
