Born too late- Fashionably Speaking Facebook page by a very nice Doll that as fun as these articles are to read and watch and look at; they don't exactly help everyone. The fact is we love and appreciate quite frankly nearly everything to do with the past but our only connect with it is from stories told to us by our grandparents or those classic movies and television shows we're all so fanatical about. With that said when it comes to style for anyone people generally look to someone (i.e. a celebrity, model, stylish family member) they admire for whatever reason to model aspects of their personal style after. For us members of the Vintage community that seems to be especially so; generally the old Hollywood starlets' , actors, crooners, etc... tend to be our foothold into the past. We search for pictures, look for their movies, read their books, listen to music the list goes on and on.
I would like to call this ongoing series the "Vintage Muse" series, it will be dedicated to bringing you style inspiration from everyday America more than just victory rolls and full skirts. I will be bringing you Style Icons as well, however I plan to introduce you Dolls to little know and forgotten old icons. You'll be able to flip through this section when you need inspiring, before you head out to the thrift or vintage shop or log onto your favorite online vintage store.
