The Vintage 13

In my goal to get more organized this year, I went through my entire closet and decided that it was time to say goodbye to many of the vintage dresses in my collection. I have a name and story for each of them, so it is a little sad to see them go; but I know that they will all find beautiful homes. And I was incredibly lucky to have my favorite vintage store in Laguna Beach adopt all 13 of them. Thank you Rachiel and Macalistaire at 1850!!

I find it so interesting that with every new year, my style changes and becomes more of an expression of the ever-evolving creation of Me; the Me that has grown, changed, and come undone with every passing year. So it was only natural that the 80s vintage that screamed: "Here I am!" is gone and the new "Earth Mama" is here to stay awhile. Some may call it hippie, I call it authentic.

So here are my 13 vintage dream replacements for the 13 that have travelled on . . .
