I'M GOING TO NEW YORK TODAY!!! Yes, the day has finally come! Now as I can't use my phone abroad and won't have Internet access I won't actually be able to show you my daily vintage wears each day but do not fear, I shall still be continuing with my little challenge while I'm out there and I shall show you all on my return. At the moment it's 4am in the morning and we are just about to set off to the airport. I have packed my suitcase full to the brim and I've got that amazing 'going on holiday' feeling when your really excited but a little bit nervous all at the same time. I'm running on caffeine, I've packed far too many dresses (I'm determined to wear one everyday regardless of the weather), I've blatantly forgot something important and I'm counting on my sunglasses to shield my eye bags from the general public. My chosen 'travel' outfit is a nice little stripey t-shirt, a nice cosy cardi and what I think is a genius idea specifically for this reason..Jeggings! Ahh yes, these stretchy little creatures still look like jeans but have the maneuverability of thick tights. Perfect for being stuck on a plane for 8 hours I feel. Now I've only been on a plane three times in my life mainly due to holiday after holiday in good old England when we were little so am a little apprehensive about flying but something tells me that whats going to meet me after the flight is gonna be waaaay better than any Butlin's holiday could ever be.

So seeing as you won't be able to get your daily dose of vintage from me, my gift to you is My Vintage Vogue. A website set up specifically to inspire fellow vintage fans. The website shows images from fashion archives from the 1920s right through to the 1960s and is really quite wonderful. I often browse the site if I need some inspiration for a photo shoot or even just when I want to look at pretty images and I urge you to do the same. Here are a few of my favourites...
