Inspired by the 1920's

 I am inspired by anything old... anything older than myself that is ..
Today's modern surroundings don't really float my boat, Id rather live in a old house that was maybe built 100"of years go then a newly built building.

I would rather wear something vintage then something I just purchased at Marcy's or any shop in the mall .. not that I have the honor of doing that, somethings something that's be wore by ten different people is so much more expensive than something you can buy at the mall

One of my biggest loves is the 1920's Frapper Girls... to say I'm fascinated by them is an understatement
I would truly loved to have lived in that era ..... the music the things they wore the way they danced...all of it ... I adore it all.

I was reading a post today over at Acute Designs, and saw she to had been inspired by something similar .... you can read the story yourselves over at her blog ... her inspiration is one of the reasons for this post along with a shop that was on the front page yesterday ... so let me share with you my 1920's inspired finds.

I am currently obsessed with cherry blossoms and hence the colour pink. I wear a lot of pink and my blog was also pink until about an hour back, when I decided that maybe I was going overboard :)

but I love evrything vintage too. I love how it always has a story.
