I’m somewhat of a vintage junkie. I adore all things vintage and antique. It’s not just the style and the look, it’s the history behind it. To me things that are vintage have a story to tell and that makes them that much more appealing. As a writer, naturally I love stories.
Anyway, in the hours I’ve spent perusing Pinterest, I’ve come across some awesome vintage ads and photo shoots that not only emphasize a style I dig, but also represent a time in history I enjoy.
This song makes me a little on edge, and I think that’s why I like it…
I heard it on a Calvin Klein ad while on Vogue.com today trying to find the Richard Russo article I initially wanted to share with you all. He wrote an amazingly true and touching piece about his mother in the November issue (Ri Ri’s on the cover in case you missed it). His autobiography, “Elsewhere,” has quickly been moved to the top of my must read list.
But alas, I could not find it an instead you are stuck with some material that is very far from the sophistication and eloquence of Mr. Russo.
That being said, I’m really into this song. Apparently it’s been around for a while so I’m slow to catching on. I want to say someone told me to start listening to The Kills a while back, but I can’t recall.
Anyway, I think the song is perfect for the clothing ad. It seems like very fashion week, runway music. It has a kind of marching beat to it which only adds to the track’s intensity. It’s intense but somehow still very cool. I can see myself getting pumped up before a night out to this song.
While not exactly a relaxing Sunday night tune, a track definitely worth putting on your iPod in the morning when you crank up the intensity of your post-Thanksgiving workout.
While searching for the perfect dress for my parents annual Christmas party, a past time I’ve always been a huge fan of ever since I was allowed to attend (circa 2005), I recently came across two new AMAZING, unique online stores.
Boden has a little bit of a J.Crew meets Banana Republic / Mad Men theme, only in a way that makes the clothes look very unlike a chain brand. For a throwback, classy party dress this is your site.
Now, if you’re looking for a little more Marilyn circa the President’s birthday meets Sharon Stone in Casino style, check out Richety Rack. Their holiday dresses are a little more edgier and sassier, while still be very reminiscent of the 60s/70s.
Now I must admit, Levi’s don’t exactly fit me the best. They aren’t all that flattering on me. That being said, I greatly admire their true American look.
I came across this video on a friend’s timeline and was intrigued. I love the song in the background. The lyrics are very fitting for the images. Which I’m also a fan of. The images of Maine are perfect for a company like Levi’s. Maine is one of those places in America where blue collar jobs are still the norm.
Definitely a pleasant way to kick off my Thursday morning.
I’m obsessed with this new a little vintage, a little hipster, total class, design site, Hip Hip Gin Gin. I was introduced to this collection of pretty pictures, clothes, quotes, cocktail recipes, etc. by the Murphy Empire, one of my social media clients that I work for Monday and Tuesday ams.
I love the layout of all the posts and the photos…oh yeah, and the content is FABULOUS! The captions that accompany the photo collages are just as elegant and classy as the photos themselves.
Adjectives that come to mind: vintage, classic, fresh, clean, bright, smart.
I LOVE everything about this. Here’s a collection of some of my fav photos I drew inspiration from:
