Visions of Vintage Dance in My Head
I wish I could say that I wear vintage.
But I don't.
It's sort of like how I wish had that knack for decorating with, & shopping for, antiques.
(I so *want* to arrange antique finds in a way that perfectly co-mingles with our mostly classic, sometimes French country, aesthetic.)
& in that same way, sometimes I really, truly have this desire to make vintage work in my wardrobe. Somehow just easing itself into place alongside my colorful Lilly prints & my preppy, tailored staples.
But while I adore the browsing,
& like to think I may even have a good eye for it,
I am never bold enough to actually click "add to cart."
Although, should I ever have a second glass of wine on the same night that I am feeling that intense attraction to the vintage treasures on my beloved Etsy...
