Hooray for spring!
It's Friday and I'm so happy. Not sure what I'm doing this weekend, but I'm definitely looking forward to whatever goes on. Thank you all so much for your super nice comments and emails here on my blog and my facebook page.
I appreciate it very much dear followers!
Every change of season is a bit bittersweet for me and always nostalgic. Spring is no exception. I'm in love with the hilly mornings and evenings either side of sunny, flower-filled afternoons, romantic nights...
I like to wear soft nude colors in spring. Love the nude tones in clothing. I find it very classy and elegant when mixed with just a simple strand of pearls.
Lately I've been more attracted to softer pallettes and colors, maybe it's the warm weather that's got me dreaming of vintage lace, ivory/white dresses, flowers, soft lightning, picnics, me and my darling with the sunset behind us on a lake...
I'm wearing my 1950's spring dress (full skirt and knee lenght), pleats from waist with hidden stiff mesh for exaggeration; zip from bottom to back of neck and my waist is "highlighted" with the 1950's style white smocked, elasticized stretch cinch belt with three silver metal closures 2" wide.
The texture is flattering and distinct without being ostentatious. What more could you ask for in a spring season that’s all about showing your soft side?

I love to make some of my own hair accessories. I am showing you my handmade nude flower. The earrings are a gift.

For this soft look - I'm wearing soft make-up with a blend of cool and neutral colors. My eyes are played up with heavy-dark eyeliner on the top lids and matt nude rose lip
s. It's a beautiful soft baby pink matt finish blush.

Okay, now back to the point of the post.
Lately, I received a lot of comments "Where do you find all your unique clothes etc. etc.?".
I get stopped all the time by friends and other people who ask me where do I buy my vintage fashion. I guess there’s no single answer to this and I can’t say it’s easy. But it is a lot of fun and I feel tremendous accomplishment when I find something perfect. What makes it difficult? Well, you don’t just go to a single store and expect to find exactly what you’re looking for. It takes a lot of hard work and time.
And...now my secret. I spend many a day going back and forth between flea markets, vintage shops and garage sale. I spend hours pouring through clothes and driving from one place to another looking for gems that will make me happy. At the end of the day, sometimes I come home with absolutely nothing to show.
I buy everything that's vintage. It may not be just clothes. I like the romance of all old pieces.
Well, I hope this article has helped you understand my process. I would love to hear about your adventures in vintage hunting.
Let me know!
Now I'll show you what I found lately that's - soft, romantic, nostalgic...

Your romantic lingerie story is not complete without the perfect corset, bustier, waist cincher, girdle, or shaper.
