As you know by now, this last weekend was the Vintage Fashion Expo in San Francisco. Not only is it a place to get new pieces for your closet, but it's also a wonderful way to share your vintage treasures with the world. I decided to wear one of my 1940s dresses, a recent purchase from Ashley. I absolutely adore the peplum waist detail, especially with all the little cut outs. I paired it with my 1950s patent shoes and handbag. I spent quite a long time trying to get my hair into perfect little curls, rolls and a pompadour, only to have it collapse after a few hours. I think I just used too many products, and my straight, fine hair just couldn't hold it up. I can't wait to try this hairstyle again and (hopefully) make it even better.
I was on my best behavior and the Fashion Expo and only purchased two dresses. One is an orange and white frock from the 1950s, and the second is a pastel babydoll dress from the 1960s. Sometimes I wish that I had a whole week to shop all the lovely vendors because it's so inspiring to see such gorgeous vintage fashion and fun displays all in one place. I hope everyone has a super fun and stylish weekend.
