Being Vintage

August was a 1950's themed month for me. Not only did I have a 50's birthday party, but we also threw a dance with a 50's beach party theme.

My brother was inspired by Gilligan's Island, and my sister's dress was made from a vintage pattern.

I got this fabulous outfit at a vintage store a few months ago! It was a good price and it still had tags that said, "I'm fully lined!" I didn't know what I would wear it to!
One of my friends organized a "Pretend to be time travelers from the 1940's" day last week. We didn't get a great turn out, but it was really fun! We had characters and backstories (I was Stella Williams, up and coming fashion designer from New York.) We wandered around campus and then had brunch. We got a lot of stares and comments. The most fun was going into the Apple Store and asking the employees how everything worked. We're planning on doing 80's, 20's, future, Ancient Greek, and 50's.
