    Electro-Swing or: How I Learned to Stop Complaining and Love Modernity

    I am really liking this thread! I actually really enjoy electro swing, especially for running music... It's got the right amount of pep in it. Haha, pep in my step. In all seriousness, I'd like to share how I first came across this music. A local friend runs the only clothing boutique in...

    42, The Jackie Robinson Biopic.

    Wow, This was not even on my radar until now, but this looks very good. And plus, it has an almost unrecognizable Harrsion Ford! My mom met Jackie Robinson once, said he was a great man. That always stuck with me and I hope to learn more about him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iP3G4E2ael8

    Moments of Doubt...

    Thanks Nemesis for sharing your thoughts, and it's good to hear you're happy being back into vintage. Recently I grew out a pencil moustache and I expected nothing but ridicule, but received NONE! I was thunderstruck. My unit has nothing but compliments and locals (IE Alaskans) are very big...

    Debacle On 34th Street

    Was anyone on the Queen Mary for the Art Deco festival? I was there Thursday before the start, and there was a Macy's convention... those people were the most banal, rude, ridiculous, drunkenly loud people I have seen with the exception of spring break college students. So this is little wonder.

    Moments of Doubt...

    You know, it is a rare thing that someone has the audacity to make a snide comment to your person, mostly because I think folks really are taken aback by how well dressed we folks are, vintage or not, dressing swell make you feel better about yourself.

    LAWLESS {Formerly The Wettest County}

    You can send your hat in to most hat shops and they can bind the brim for you with a matching color to the ribbon, or if you like, an offset color! I saw the film last night... it was good. I wanted Gary Oldman's character to be in it more, but that's just the way this movie played out. Guy...

    Moments of Doubt...

    It's tough isn't it? Then again every once in a while there are the derisive remarks that are simply funny. I was at a movie tonight, Lawless (meh, but that's for later) and some drunkard called out to me "Hey Einstein, what'd you think of the movie." ... Well I had no idea what he meant by...

    Moments of Doubt...

    I had a moment of doubt today. I was walking back to my house, it was a torrential downpour (which didn't have me feeling particularly cheerful) and I wasn't wearing vintage anything... but a small, nagging voice was in my head. "Why do I wear vintage clothing? No one else does... why do I...

    "Mad Men" on AMC (US) - (Spoilers Within)

    Re-watching the season five finale, after the scene where Pete is truly honest about himself to Beth (the woman he had an affair with) made me wonder something... could these characters, if they were real, ever fix their social issues and move on with their lives? It seems to me Pete really...

    Technically this was yesterday, but it was for a vintage photo shoot a friend wanted to do for her portfolio.

    What are you wearing today??
