Vintage Wedding


Alas! Here it is! The wedding dress of my dreams! Happy its mine for the taking! After a long photo shoot for nodtomod vintage, I decided to put a huge HUGE grin on my face. So I put on my wedding dress and danced in front of a mirror. This will be the dress that I wear when I finally marry my adorable bf at a quiet quaint court house. Nothing fancy...just immediate family and SMALL. I have yet to show him the dress.....or the pictures! Do you really think its bad luck for him to see the dress? Of course, he does NOT understand vintage at all. I will show him a vintage garmet that I love and get the 'ah' look from him. Once I put it on and am all accessorized......he LOVES it! I hope this isnt the case with this 20's rose lace dress.....that I will marry him in! Hope you love this dress as much as I do.

Retro Funky Tops




I love different looks....clearly. Everyone can go buy a shirt, blouse or top from any department store and love it. The thing with vintage is that it is one of a kind......a different look. Here are some of my fav funky tops that are in my shop now.

Whats Your Take on Him?


As we are waiting for our cable to be hooked up in our new house, we have been watching "The Best of SNL". Will Ferrell, Chris Farley, Mike Meyers and of course Adam Sandler. All hilarious men, but do you find Adam Sandler handsome on his own or handsome because he is so damn funny?

Grease is Back?




I see it everywhere......tight rolled jeans and a vintage tank or tee. Of course with my wardrobe I can totally check off this list as I have both. But are tight rolled jeans really back in? I always think just simple torn loose fitted jeans are perfect......why roll? Are you a fan of the 'grease' day tight roll? Harem pants are in...like we didnt know that! I remember wearing a pair of harem pants to a going away party over 3 years ago. I was totally picked on for them as I guess they werent splashed all over the fashion mags yet. Lets just say......Im pretty happy they are in now. Total haters! Do you love or hate these saggy yet fitted pants?
