Hello everyone!
My vintage kick continues. Literally, every spring for the past five years I get this weird obsession. I can't stop watching vintage hair and makeup tutorials on youtube. I look in dismay at all of my clothes that aren't vintage or vintage inspired. I get this intense urge to go thrifting. I listen to 40's music, watch swing dancing videos, and (apparently) sign up for a swing dancing class. I plan out what old movies I'll rent at the library when I get home, and until then I watch The Notebook on repeat. I do research about vintage fashion, follow new vintage blogs, and even start taking photos with film.

I get vintage fever every spring.

With much love, Lauren ♥

Hmm I've never saw The Notebook but I've heard so many people praise it I'd say it's about time to watch it :)
About your outfit: you look as cute as ever. Your hair like that look sublime and I just adore the dress.

Lauren, you look so lovely in this outfit! Btw- I can totally relate to the vintage craze- the vintage bug always bites me during spring, although I love vintage all year long, too! You have such amazing style, I always smile when I see your photos go up on the ModCloth style gallery :)

I just started reading The Notebook.
I miss your comments on my blog. Did I do something to upset you at one point to receive silence? You used to comment a lot and it has been maybe a year since I saw your name show up. eek. Anyway you are beautiful and I always love your outfits. It is fun to look at hair tutorials. I miss making them but with super long hair it is tough to do. I can watch them without actually doing my hair in that way though, right?? hehe.
