Finally Did It !

I've been contemplating for awhile. My daughter has wanted me to let her model my vintage clothing. I finally said "O.K. lets try it and see."  Well... to be honest it was a lot of fun. I think the photos turned out nice and I think it has inspired her to have her own style.

At first she wanted to model some contemporary pieces I had and I told her if she is going to model for me it has to be a vintage piece. Even though she may not have liked what I picked out for her, once she saw how you can mix and match vintage with her modern clothes she was rather surprised. So..now she would like to inspire others to have their own unique style and not be like everyone else.

I have loved vintage and have done my share of going to thrift shops, estate sales, garage sales etc. Its always been such fun and I love the thrill of the hunt! So...it looks like I will be having another partner, besides my husband, going along for the thrill of the hunt. I'm excited and so is she!

Here are a couple of photos to show off and you can check the dress out in my ebay shop.

These photos are so great! Your girl is a real natural for fashion. The styling is fun including the hat. This dress would even look great with colorful accessories. It would be fun with a wide brown belt at the waist. Or try it layered with a menswear vest. It's a great style. Thanks for sharing. You want to know what I think? You should move your photos to the top!!! Have a great day! Kerry

Thank you RETRO REVA and elegantKB for your comments! Yes..it is nice to be different from the main stream and have a style all your own. Kerry ~ I like the idea of a wide brown belt and laying it with a vest...I wish I had thought of that before ~ that would have given a total different look...thanks so much for the suggestions!
