Vintage Re-imagined: Virginia Slims and Bananas Foster

Hello There! Welcome to a new series (one which I am very excited about) - Vintage Re-imagined! I will be taking vintage pieces that I either find in local shops or I already own and I will make them my own. This time around I used a couple of pieces I already own. Each of these vintage items belonged to my great grandmother, Rue Dishongh, otherwise known as Mama Rue. Let's start from the top...
Hat: Target  Hat Pin: Vintage from a shop in Harrogate Necklace: Vintage courtesy of Mama Rue Lipstick: BareEscentuals in Red Zin
Skirt: Vintage Neiman Marcus Wool Skirt courtesy of Mama Rue Shoes: Aldo
Belt: DKNY Charm: Vintage courtesy of Mama Rue

And here is the wonderful woman who continues to be an inspiration to me even though she is no longer with us. “Elegance comes from being as beautiful inside as outside.” 

Stay tuned for another Vintage Re-imagined post! I am going to really love these... Let me know if you have any good flea market/vintage finds! Also, please let me know if you are in the Denver area and know of any lovely little vintage shops. A HUGE thanks to the lovely Golan for being my photographer. If you'd like to see more of these please subscribe in the sidebar! x

A Little Monday Inspiration

Today I received my Anthropologie November Lookbook in the mail. It was not only full of wonderful pieces that I would love to get my hands on (as usual) but it also contained some wonderfully inspiring images. If I were to accomplish nothing else in my modeling career other than an Anthro campaign, I would still be one happy girl. 

I want those gold puppies in the corner... 
Because everyone needs a dining table in the middle of a field...right? Right.

What has inspired you so far this month? Let me know in the comments! Stay tuned for an exciting new series and subscribe in the sidebar! x
