Vintage Inspiration

I've been really feeling a major vintage vibe lately. I mean, real vintage. Not like, 90's vintage - I'm talking about Belle Epoque, the Gilded Age, Kennedy-era, all that. The Good Times. I read a fantastic book called The Power of Style, which dedicates a chapter each to some of history's most fashionable, influential women. Some I had never heard of - Daisy Fellowes, Rita Lydig, Elsie DeWolfe, Millicent Rogers- others I know of well -C.Z Guest, Jacqueline Kennedy, Coco Chanel, and a Guinness or two. It was just so amazing to read about the lost art of simply being chic.

Here are some of my fave vintage photos that have been lurking on my computer. Perfect for enjoying while waiting for snow on the East Coast.

Rock Hudson and Doris Day
