Mixing Decades and Old Cars

I've been lacking in dressing inspiration lately. I've been spending a lot of time sewing for my new Etsy shop (which will be open in a week or two!), but haven't been getting dressed up myself. Pajamas have been my uniform the last few weeks (they are 1920's inspired pajamas, but not very glamorous ones). However, today I tried to make a bit of an effort, and threw together this outfit. The top is 1920's inspired (a bit too large for me though), the skirt was 50's inspired, and I did my hair in an loose Edwardian style. It was just what I needed to break out of my rut. It's good to get dressed up every once and a while.


This afternoon, I attended Brits on the Lake, which is a annual British car show held in Port Perry. We arrived later in the day but it was still packed with people. I tried to get some shots of the cars but I couldn't even get close to many of them. Here is a few I did manage to snap (I tried to edit out the people):



I don't know much about cars, but it was still a lot of fun to check out the different models. There must have been at least a couple hundred vehicles there.

I hope everyone else had an enjoyable weekend!

 That's All.

  1. Sweet outfit, and I love the cars - I would happily drive away in any of them.

  2. Such gorgeous classic rides set against on of the most charming vintage streets I've seen anywhere in our fine country.

    Your outfit is oodles of fun! Isn't a blast to mix one's favourite elements from different decades like this sometimes. Call it vintage fusion, if you will. :)
