Striking

Transfixed. Entranced. Enchanted.

One of my favorite vintage stores in LA, besides the always fabulous Adored Vintage, is Flounce Vintage in Echo Park. I love following them on Facebook as they like to post wonderful vintage photographs...and today's choice simply took me aback:

Sometimes a voice from the past can speak so loudly that it takes you by surprise.

Just one moment
caught in varied shades of gray
finds someone unknown
touched.


40's Hair

01.19.10 | it's the little things...

While home in bed this weekend with a cold/flu (yuck) I came across a great youtube video about how to create a 40's hairstyle. It was one of those "that blog which led me to that blog, which led me to that video which led me to that video, which led me to that website" sort of moments. I love those moments! That's what brought me to Casey and her blog www.elegantlyamusings.com. Check out her youtube channel which has the great vintage hair and makeup tutorials including the one that got me hooked: ElegantlyAmused YouTube Channel

Thank you Casey for reconnecting me to my love for 40's style and giving such great how-to tips!
