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.
