I guess I love ALL things vintage...
I'm a very visual person whether it be decor or fashion, I am the kind of person who NEEDS to have visual stimulation. I HAVE to collect images to refer back to at any given moment. Instead of stacks of magazines I've actually created several inspiration books. Countless pages of inspiration from health, decor, beauty, etc. I even save pictures of future haircuts. No kidding, I've actually got a list of haircuts I WILL have at some point. The computer isn't safe either! With the Internet you can only imagine how many inspiration folders I've got filled with fantastic images!!! Now my husband thinks I'm ridiculous and he's not to thrilled with how slow our computer can be at times because of it. Yet I can't help it!! They make me smile. They put me in a better mood. I can't even begin to count how many actual photos I've saved but I can tell you I've got one folder labeled "House Ideas" which has 13 sub folders (bedroom, kids rooms, outdoor ideas etc.) Then I have "Fav Stuff" which consists of hair do's, make up. There's also "Fav Outfits", you get the idea? Sometimes I run a slide show of all of these fabulous images just because. Anyhow I've recently been spending more time on polyvore.com browsing the outfits that have been put together by fashionistas from all over the world. I've begun to realize that I prefer Vintage in all aspects of my life. There's nothing I LOVE more than a ripped pair of jeans, boots, vintage jewelry, a vintage shirt and a fedora!! Might be my uniform this school year! Here's a couple looks from polyvore.com that I also like. Enjoy!
Some of these I'd change the shoes or loose the jacket but the overall idea of what I like is there. Anyhow I'd love to see or hear what your go to outfit will be this school year!! Yes even my Home School Mom's with your mail order jeans! HA, you know who you are! ;)
