Today, a little inspiration from Bethany over at the blog The Glamorous Housewife . Here she speaks to why she wears vintage:
I have always been enamored of the 1950s. I mean is there really a more glamorous period of time? Women were allowed to look like women, not prepubescent boys (which we can thank the 60s and Twiggy for). I find the general silhouette of the 50s to be the most flattering on my body, though I often dip into the 40s and early 60s as well. So for me, the reason I wear vintage clothing is pure vanity! I think I look good in vintage items so therefore I wear them. As an incredibly vain person, I want to look and feel beautiful every single day, and I think there is nothing wrong with this desire.
I am a vintage clothing shop owner living and working in rural north Florida. I believe in adding a little vinegar and molasses to my greens, having my coffee outside whenever possible, and mixing something vintage into every room and every outfit.
