before I loved vintage....

Monday, December 29, 2014


 I have a feeling that 2015 is going to bring really good things.  I've been away from the internet for a long time, working on getting my house clean and organized from top to bottom and I created a fresh new office space to help me stay on task better than I did this year. I'm so excited to start the new year with a clean slate.

This year, I'm putting together a small mood board every month. This little curated space will hold the things that I love and that inspire me. This month's theme is "things I used to love" because in order to go forward, sometimes you need to look back.

Before I fell in love with vintage fashion and began this blog, I was obsessed with historical fashion and modern styles influenced by history. I want to do more of the things I once loved this year so I'm starting January with a reminder of what led me to vintage and what filled my daydreams before 1940s dresses and Bakelite jewelry.

  1. How fun! I used to scrapbook a lot before I found vintage. I stopped because unless you have kids or are getting married, there's not much to scrapbook.

  2. Oh goodness, I made a lot of Kanzashi before I fell into the vintage rabbit hole. I also loved historical costumes a lot more as well. Your new office space is very pretty, and I can't wait for you to share it with us more.

  3. Very lovely post and idea. I too have really felt as though I've been pulled towards certain older passions lately, too - from goth fashions to crafts I've done little of in the past decade. I think 2015 is going to be a year of rekindling with old flames for both of us.

  4. I don't know if you're aware of who the lolita girl second from last in your photos is but she has a blog called Aletheia Nocturne where she shares all her beautiful outfits. Her rococo-inspired ones are just stunning. http://aletheia-nocturne.net/

    I've been following her for a while now, she's one of my favourite non-vintage fashion bloggers.

    1. Thank you so much!! I found her photo on Pinterest but it linked to a Tumblr that wasn't hers and there was no info on who she is! I hoped she had a blog because she's lovely. Thanks!!

  5. Is it a real typewriter or a decorative cardboard box? I look forward to seeing more of your office space. Happy New Year, dear. :)

    1. It's a wooden music box! You open the drawer and the wheel spins while it plays. Its actually one of my little girl's Christmas presents and she insists on keeping it in my office....and I don't mind a bit! :P My step-grandpa gave it to her and I think he found it at a flea market

  7. This is very cool! I actually learned more about historical clothing after vintage, and as I'm thinking about it... I was kind of just a style mutt-mess before vintage... I wish I had more pictures of the atrocious styles I embraced, especially through my tumultuous, finding-myself teen years. Truly horrific. :)
