You're Never Too Old to Play Dress Up!

Remember when you were small and played dress up with your mom's or grandmother's clothes? I do! I remember wearing my mom's old 1950s hats and purses with my friends. How grand I felt! Many years later, I feel no different especially when I wear vintage! Today I feel like a Parisian Flapper aka Louise Brooks. Thanks to Ashley from Fringe Salon  in Simcoe, she has once again outdid herself and has 'flapperized' me by creating the perfect 1920s bob! However, the pièce de résistance is this wonderful vintage dress from Astral Boutique. Sasha is always inspiring and her pictures of this dress made me fall in love. I could picture myself strolling along a Parisian street, having coffee at an outdoor cafe while violin music played in the distance. Vintage clothing lets you go back in time and never gets old!

You are never too old to play dress up!
