Questions? Queries? Concerns?


My science teacher in high school used to ask that at the end of each class.

So, now that outfit posts have dwindled (blame the rain!) I'm searching for ways to keep posting interesting things. Of course one "event" will be hat week, still a work in progress, and inspiration photos are a must.

Meanwhile, does anyone have any questions for me? Anything totally random, or completely common? I'll do my best to answer in a post next week :)

What is it like having bangs like yours? Are they easy or hard to care for?

Also, why how come you ended up with all the nice hats?

Bettie Booh said...

How long have you been dressing vintage, and what is your favourite outfit of all times?

What do you know about taking in vintage coats? I got a gorgeous early '50s brocade dinner jacket but it was meant for a much larger woman. I want to take in the body of the coat and maybe the sleeves (although they are not as ill-fitting)

I have a few questions! LOL. Some of these might be covered in hate week (I can't wait!!). 1.) I have many vintage hats and gloves. Not so much vintage clothes. How can I incorporate them into my wardrobe without looking like I'm wearing a costume? 2.) Some of these hats don't stay on my head. How to adhere hats to head. 3.) Hairstyles with vintage hats. Is it possible to stay contemporary with the hair but vintage with the hat?

Oh, I have a question! When you sew your clothes do you make your own pattens or do you buy commercial ones, if so which? Any good advice on sewing vintage style clothes?

I have some questions that I think would qualify as "random", hehe. Some are about your personal life - it's totally OK if you don't want to get in to that, I just thought it would be fun to learn a bit more about "the person behind the blog". So.
1. How did you and your husband meet?
2. When you were a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
3. Do you want kids?
4. What kind of music do you listen to?
5. Wich are the top 5 blogs that you read?
6. Is your home also vintage-inspired?
7. What do you wish to achieve in your life?

I was ironing a dress to wear this week and thought of all the lovelies that you wear. They always seem to be in pristine condition. How do you care for your vintage/otherwise garments? Do you clean and press them yourself or have it done? How do you store things? I would love some tips.

I would love to know what your favorite thrift stores in Van/Portland are. I had mine when I lived there, but since it's been so long they are all moved and new now. :) Thanks darling! xoxo

Do you plan to visit NYC anytime soon? It would be fun to hang out! Wow, that sounds kind of stalker-ish, but I swear I'm not a creep!

hasoon said...

All I have to say is that that is a real nice skirt. Colour and pocket - so unusual and fine!

Mel said...

Who are your biggest style inspirations/icons?

Favorite classic movies or film stars?

Rochelle said...

How do you do your make-up? It's gorgeous!

feathergirl said...

What tips do you have for customers who want to care for their new vintage wear? I always have a problem getting smells out of some pieces.

Riikka said...

I'd love to know what your favorite beauty products are, especially lipsticks. :)

How do you store or display your hat collection?

Is there a piece of vintage clothing that is 'the one that got away' for you - one that you still regret not buying?

Have you ever had any big sewing/laundry disasters with your vintage clothing?

I'd also love to be nosy and see what your home looks like. :) I'm sure it's gorgeous!

Lovely lovely green skirt. I might have to make myself something like it!
Thanks for your photos, no matter how small or random, it is always an inspiration.

Andrea said...

-When you come across vintage clothing, how do you determine what era it came from?

-How do you care for your vintage clothing/fabrics/hats/etc.

-I would also love to see more pictures of your home. I remember a few photos when you were moving in/setting up.

-What are your greatest inspirations?

-How can I start incorporating vintage fashions into my daily wardrobe? (I only have vintage dresses I wear to church)

Lizzy said...

I have some questions for you:
1) At what age did you start wearing vintage?
2) Wich era is your favorite?
3) Which one was your very first vintage outfit?
4) Is it uncorfortable that people look at you because of your clothes?
5) How old are you?
6) How long did you dated with your husband before getting married?

amber said...

Where did you get all the vintage photo backgrounds and effects you use on the pictures in your blog?

sarah louise walker said...

What kinds of modern pieces do you own, and how often do you buy new? When you do, where do you go, and what is the appeal of a new item versus finding a vintage piece for you?
