Hello! I’ve been MIA since school started…so. much. work. But I have found time to do some vintage shopping. I bought this faded pearl collar over the weekend. I knew it was meant to be; it was 25% off! It ended up being $15. It’s kinda discolored, but I think that’s what gives it a cool antique-y vibe. I was ecstatic. It was one of those purchases your really hesitant to commit to, but once you do you’re super excited. Plus, I love this Peter Pan-ish collar trend that’s emerging. Neck’s are very graceful and showing them off can look very sleek. I can’t wait to display my vintage find!
Have you ever wondered what decade you’d go back to if you could time travel? For me, it’s hands down the seventies. I love the luxe fur and glamorous hair. Which is why this winter I can’t wait to wear one of my favorite coats of all time. I got this vintage 70s coat for Christmas when I was about 14 and didn’t know if I had reason to keep it. I followed my instincts because 1. it’s hard for me to let go of clothes and 2. I got a hunch I could wear it in the future. Turns out it was the smartest decision I ever made.
So I stumbled across this app in the app store on my iPhone somehow, and I’m in love! It’s called Instagram and you can add cool, vintage-y effects to pictures and share them with other users. It’s like facebook and twitter combined with pictures! I may be totally late on this, but I had no idea this existed. So I’m informing other photography lovers that you need to get this app it’s free! Here are some photos I took (some on my trip to Europe this summer) with the filters.
