oH JackEE!

I Started Wearing  Vintage When I was Younger We couldn’t Afford anything else. 

As an adult I’m realizing it no longer about resources but preference. I’m secretly not from here. I’m serious. No Seriously I can’t be. I cannot deal with the style of this decade. I would give anything to go back to the 50’s white hair and red lipstick era or maybe the 1970’s you didn’t have to work too hard! This is what made the ’70’s memorable. Now that was fashion! Maybe that’s why I’m still in love with vintage clothing. Growing up watching 227, Martin, Fresh Prince and everything in between the main female characters exemplified so much style and grace without taking anything off. I mean these women had on suites! Baggy sweaters and high waist jeans and they still looked sexy. Go figure. I promised myself no matter what the department stores offered us, no matter what was trendy I would try to channel a little Sandra Clark ( Jackee Harry  from 227).


One of my favorite Vintage Finds!















I love pointy toe shoes I snagged this beautiful babies from shoe dazzle they have tons of colors. Purchase them here.

    I absolutely agree with your post. It was about femininity. Like you said, it’s not about showing your body off. It’s about being a lady. I had a dress like that (back in the 80s, early 90s) and fought my mom tooth and nail. When I wore that bad boy to church for the first time, all those little boys were blowing up my beeper. When the peplum came back, I was like ‘Yaaaas Gawd’!
