    I adore this young lady's style. I know that I couldn't pull it off - but she looks adorable to me. She generally throws some vintage into her daily outfit and I think that the look is still quite modern.

    I love this collection of pins that she attached to the dress. I would never have thought to wear multiples.

    Oh yeah, she has class and style! Love her outfits especially these two. I could definitely see myself wearing these.

    I love her art! It's always fun when different avenues of your interests overlap and you find familiar faces on different websites :)

    I've just gone through this thread from start to finish and really enjoyed myself :) I'm definitely one for mixing my styles and eras. I just pick and choose what I like (and most of that happens to be from late 30's - early 50's). I don't have the time or money, or possibly inclination to be a purist for any particular era. For starters I'd get it wrong and have my confidence dented quite easily :)

    I have to agree that not all the photos here would be what I'd choose to wear myself. But, oh how I wish more people round me would dress with a bit more thought. I yearn for the days of students all trying to outdo each other to be 'different' rather than sitting in their little crowds of denim&tracksuits staring at anything with a bit of colour.

    I would definately say that she's much more pin up retro than vintage inspired, but I like it anyway! better than sweatpants and UGGS!

    Simple. Cute. More vintage inspired.

    I don't know that she hasn't been posted on another thread but i just adore her and her escort. This was at an easter parade, the dress is a vintage couture piece by Oleg Cassini

    I was scanning this thread for ideas, and I just noticed this dress. I had to sell it because it got too big, but I had this exact same dress! I'm sure it's not the same one though because she looks small, but wild anyway! And it sure looks more vibrant with their camera.

    I adore this thread! So I thought I'd add to it (from Hel-looks):

    Minna Parikka bag is the only bag I use. And the black vintage hat has lived on top of my head for three weeks now."

    love this thread... whether someones take is authentic, vintage-inspired or vintagesque quirk its always wonderful to see it out in the streets of the real world rather than in "staged" scenarios... so i decided to do a bit of hunting to show you ladies whats out on the streets of melbourne town... unfortunately i didn't come up with much - the following two images were the best ... (which has certainly inspired me to make sure i carry my camera everywhere now to capture what i find on my own street strolls)

    the most frightening thing is i came across an image of myself (kinda creepy since i'd forgotten all about it even being taken!)
    it must've been about two months ago whilst i had snuck off from work for a sneaky cigarette break in a quiet alley (as i work for a vintage-inspired label i am wearing mostly new vintagesque but the shirt & accessories are all original)

    I love the vintage inspired looks. I think they are lovely. While form time to time I enjoy being a purist it is next to impossible for me this gives me some inspiration.
