Adoring Vintage

My style(/s) have always wavered depending on my mood.  Vintage has always played a small part, but until just now I have never adored it so much.  (Even though the term Vintage actually appears to include anything from the 1800’s up to 1980’s, it makes it easy to love at least bits of it…)

Makes me want to edit my wardrobe and decor and start embracing vintage to a new level.  Op shops, swap meets, here I come…

The Humming Bird Girls = very pretty stuff.

The Snail and the Cyclops.  She has some beautiful, beautiful clothes!

I must say, my vintage love was also very inspired after consuming Season 1 of Mad Men.  OOooh retro goodness.  (Love the clothes, not won over by the decor though).

After perusing these styles for a while today it has become apparent that a Hybrid Vintage is in order.  Take the 1960’s wiggle skirt/flouncy look

(bring back hats and gloves I say)

and pair it against a backdrop of postmodern… Check out this home that Design Sponge featured, and maybe a little of this home – the first photo of the kitchen is so lovely! And this couch, print and lamp combination is just stunning.

Love the flags. And the lamp shade!  Not sure where I found this picture though… Let me know if you do!

So take these lovely settings… Add a little splash of “real” vintage decor…

And you could create something very, very spectacular.  Let’s call it a Vintopomo… Or maybe a Pomovitage…

Sounds like it could be an interesting season for me…

p.s.  this blog is good to too!
