A 30s look and must click links

Instead of rambling on about myself and whatnot, here's some posts from some of my favorite bloggers that are really inspiring me right now:

Wall Eyed, via Style Rookie. Oh. My. God. How does she take pictures that look like magazine editorials? And how does she look so amazing all the time? Well, the answer to the latter is confidence, take a lesson from this 13 year old. Or is she 14 now? I forget, either way...

Miss America in the 1920s, via The Cat's Pajamas. The bathing suits! The ringlets! The most appealing thing about these pictures is the imperfection of every beauty pageant contestant. Wouldn't it be a dream to attend a 1920s pageant?

Romping Around, via Q's Daydream. Seriously, this girl is adorable. I never would have thought of socks and sandles with a 40s romper, but now I can't think of it any other way! She's spot on with spring inspiration.

I want to post more but tonight my internet is being as slow as me in math class, so I hope you enjoy those three!

Blouse-H&M via Buffalo Exchange, Hillcrest San Diego.

Skirt-Handmade by me!

Divine! Funny, my outfit today is almost the same in reverse... black and white polka dot skirt that flares out at the knee, black blouse with white trim and a pearl brooch I found on the weekend! Great minds..... x Lucy

I have to let you know that I SO love this vintage outfit, and because I love it so much, I am having a seamstress on Etsy make one for me in my size. I am still struggling to find the perfect red vintage heels to wear with it, but I am sure I will happen upon them soon... Thank you for being such an inspiration to me! I too am a vintage vixen living in a modern world!
