Mama Style: Vintage Grows Older

I Recently I went through some photos of myself to give my niece for a project of hers.  What stood out to me (even more than the fact I had a waist) was how I have grown up.  A lot has happened since I stood there in the Las Vegas desert over 15 years ago.
 I want to dress to reflect this maturity, yet I still love the clothes of my younger years.  It is a difficult balance, made more difficult by the fact items I once searched far and wide for (i.e 1940's size 8.5 platforms) are now available with the click of a button.
I won't give you the "when I was your age we had to walk to school up hill both ways" speech, but I will say gals like me were the road pavers and I am proud of that.  But now we must find ourselves a way to gracefully grow older with vintage style.  The blog I titled Wear This Not That: Mama Style is an example of the type of subjects I'll be writing more about.


  1. Im 28 which is still darn young but I get what you're saying.I've been dressing vintage since jr.high and its fun to see old pictures and how all out I use to get but you are a fun inspiration to see that just because we grow up and get married doesnt mean we have to conform ti boring all normality.

  2. I refuse to give it up. Vintage til death, no matter how silly it may seem to others.

  3. Exactly! It's about doing it with style, grace and class.
