As She Was | Found Vintage Photos

As She Was | Found Photos of Everyday Women

The clothing women choose to wear tells a lot about her, whether intentionally or not. If photos tell 1,000 words, we’re willing to bet the clothing worn aids this story enormously.

Perhaps this is why we adore vintage photos of women so much and seeing what everyday women wore doing normal everyday things. Life isn’t always about the big SHABANG moments. So much of life happens in simple clothing, unmade faces, and messy hair.

We adore the image above so much! We just want to be friends with these gals. And the pleated wool skirt the gal in the middle is wearing, of course we love it, we’re such suckers for a-line pleated skirts.

Vintage Shop Arrivals | Ladylike Autumn

antique1900slighttaneyeletblouse_twitter

Where did November go you guys? I literally felt like it was JUST Halloween and I was dressed up like Eliza Doolittle and dancing around the studio with “dirt” on my face.

Ahh well, life moves on. And the Presidential election happened. Yep. THAT happened. However, this is not the place, nor will it really ever be, to discuss politics, so, let’s press on, shall we?

We have been adding so many new arrivals in the shop, both vintage clothing and accessories and modern vintage inspired clothing from our recent buying trip in L.A. If we listed ALL the new arrivals here, it would take too long, so here are just the most recent ones!

Vintage Inspired Home: A Bit of Blush

This morning I asked my husband what he thinks about pale pink bedding. Thankfully his immediate response wasn’t to recoil and go “AUGH, Pink! I am a M-A-N (rawwwrr) I will not have pink in my bedroom!” Instead he responded with “Well, what do you mean…”, which I then proceeded to show him some pale (pale) pink linen bedding to go with our grey and cream bedding. He wasn’t crazy about the idea, but didn’t say no either.

So, basically since the husband said he wouldn’t mind pale pink bedding, I’m assuming he’s going to be A-OK with me getting a pink velvet couch! Just kidding, I HAD a pink velvet couch and I sold it. Sometimes I regret that decision… but actually, it wasn’t the right shade of pink I wanted.

I am wondering how pale pink walls in a bathroom would be…. I’ve had dark navy walls in our bathroom before and then a sort of minty pale green and cream combo. I think a pink bathroom would be rather nice. A nice faded shade of pink with warm undertones, like sand. Pink is a very feminine color and I think it can get a bad rep for being fussy. Here are some pale pink colors I would consider for a bathroom or even for a bedroom.

The images below are the ones I showed the husband. Of course the one on the left was a little TOO MUCH, but he was ok with the one on the right. Although, truth be told, the one on the left is a bit too much even for my blush loving heart. So, now I have a new mission… find pale pink bed linens!

And if you are in search of a bit of blush for your bed, Hale Mercantile Co. has some really beautiful bedding (about $59 AUD for a pillowcase))
