In a previous post called Every Day Wear Vintage I talked about wearing vintage every day rather than just out and about. I have the hardest time finding vintage pieces that I can wear due to being long waisted, however I think I may have finally found a way round it besides wearing empire waist dresses all the time.
I was looking through some vintage hair style tutorials when I came across one that I tried the other day, however I am incapable of doing victory curls so I modified it and did a front bump (is there an actual name to this style?)
I first saw this tutorial on Facebook and I followed the link to a Tumblr account which had actual written directions here.
My favorite vintage hairstyle blog is by The Freckled Fox, great tutorials and directions are given on her website. Definitely worth checking out, I used her tutorials when I ask my hair dresser to put victory curls in my hair for a party last year.
Here is my version of the photo up above.
I know the photo’s aren’t the best since my 8 year old was helping me that day.
As I started with I am wearing my every day vintage almost everyday now, I may need to find a few more blouses to finish out my closet.
Scarf, Blouse and shoes are vintage. the pedal pushers are new.

I am going to get very real and very honest in this post.
Today my parents had to moved my Nana Janet into an assisted living facility with a special unit for Alzheimer’s/dementia patients. You see my Nana Janet is only 82 years old and has dementia that is very progressive, she can barely remember what day it is or even if she asked you how old your children are or what their names are. She will call you sweetie or kiddo because she doesn’t remember what your name is anymore. She will tell you that Jim (my grandfather) who passed away 19 years ago ran to the store to go pick up groceries or to drop the kids (my Mom and her siblings) off to band practice even though they are all adults with adult children. She wonders why her mom and dad do not answer the phone when she calls them to say hello or why my grandfather isn’t home from work yet.
I hate this disease and what it has done with my Nana Janet, I absolutely hate it. I’ve pray for healing for her but it isn’t my will be done but Gods be done in this situation so now I pray for peace and understanding for her, my parents, my aunts and uncles and the rest of the family.
She has always be loving, warm and kind to all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren and that is something I know I will always cherish along with her stories and how she used to try to feed us every time we would stop by for a visit.
This photograph was taken at her 80th birthday party, oh we had so much fun and she told the best stories.
If you follow me on Facebook you know I am a huge fan of sharing other shops, for the next month I am going to share 3 or so shops with you that I think you will just love every Wednesday.
Ivy of AngsanaSeeds has some of the most beautiful photographs, you can check out her lovely Etsy shop here.
Lin of RhodyArt has quirky and eccentric mixed media art in her Etsy shop, you can check out her shop at this link.
Cynthia and Kay over at Gypsum Moon Rocks has some of the most amazing gems, minerals and crystals just to name a few. You can check out their shop over on Etsy.
See you next week with another set of great shops to share with you.
