My Vintage Vogue
A while ago my friend Imogen shared one of her favorite websites, My Vintage Vogue, on her blog.
It has quickly become one of my favorite websites. It is basically a huge collection of vintage fashion photos and illustrations.
Sometimes when I'm feeling sad or bored, I will head over to this site and lose myself in the glamorous furs, jewels, and hats of the 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s.
This week has been one of those times. Work has been an astonishingly dreary place to be these days. I will blog more about that later.
But for now I want to dive straight into a world that no longer exists, or perhaps never did.
I want to be in a world where cocktails are served before dinner, extravagant hats are admired on the streets, and every real lady carries a satin handkerchief which matches her pumps.
I want life to be glamorous.
Is that too much to ask?

PS. I got my laptop fixed! Yay!
