Hello everyone!

How was every one's weekend? I feel like my weekends always go by so fast and the school week just seems to drag on endlessly...

But today I got the chance to wear one of my latest thrift finds to church! I couldn't believe my luck when I happened upon this little 50's beauty. I was anxious to try the dress on because I was so scared that it wasn't going to fit and be let down, but I was relieved when it fit perfectly! (now I just can't gain any weight...ha) The only problem with the dress is that the zipper is a bit difficult to get up and down, but with a lot of effort it does eventually go up which is all that matters :)

I always feel most beautiful when I wear full, authentic vintage outfits. I feel like when I wear vintage, I am so myself and that I get to show people truly who I am. At church when I walked in, everyone just stared at me like I had two heads. It was like people had never seen a girl in a hat before (although I do wear hats to church all the time). After church, however, it was amazing how many older women and even some older men complimented me on my outfit. It was so nice to have some people appreciate old things and see the beauty in them like I do. In the 40's, 50's, and even 60's it was unheard of for a woman to go out without gloves and a hat. Now a days as you all have probably seen, women go out in public (and even school unfortunately), looking like they just rolled out of bed. I mean, you don't have to get all dolled up everyday. I understand that we live in Ohio and it's cold and yucky 75% of the time, but at least change out of your pajamas! I've always found it important to look like a lady. If I'm a girl, why not look and act like it?!

See you all tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing well!

With much love, Lauren.
