Vintage Photo Shoot

     Where I come from people are more likely to be wearing jeans and hoodies than vintage. Because of this I have never had any vintage friends. My sisters will go vintage once in a while, but not daily by any means. One of my main reasons for starting this blog was so that I could get to know other vintage ladies through the internet. However, fate has stepped in. There is a totally knock-your-socks-off vintage girl who lives right above me. Her name is Emileigh, and she also has a blog. Here is her post about our shopping trip (I decided not to be redundant and rewrite her post, so I will post about our photo shoot instead).
Emileigh is wearing a 1910's dress with a matching hat and a 1940's coat
She doesn't normally wear clothes quite this old, her style is more based in the 40's. I tend to swing between the 40's and 50's, so we have a lot in common. Our wonderful photographer did not give me any pictures of herself (which makes me sad), but if you go over to Emileigh's post you will see a few pictures of the lovely Ashlee :)
     We decided to go on this photo shoot to record Emileigh's dress, but the rest of us wanted to dress up too! (not to mention that Ash is my blog photographer now).
     My sister is wearing my petticoat and circle skirt (you can see me wearing it here) as well as my shirt (bought) and one of the lovely hats I found Saturday. The belt and shoes are hers though. Emily (second from left) is wearing a beautiful dress which she also found Saturday and couldn't resist. I am wearing my new wool skirt and another of my wonderful new hats. The sweater is from Old Navy, and the cardigan is from Kohls. The shoes are ridiculous. They are much taller than they look, and we walked to our venues. It didn't occur to me soon enough to walk barefoot and I got a blister. I am also wearing my new girdle (which I talked about in the same post as above), I will be writing about that soon.
     Despite our obvious longing for cool weather it was quite warm (though the weather has started to turn now, thank goodness!) We are crazy, but oh well. 

     Here's to friendships, may they last forever!


  1. Haha, you picked my crazy photos, thank you. :)

  2. Haha, only two of them are. They were simply too good to pass up! The first picture is not crazy at all.
