Hair flipping through Saturday because I got these 1940’s canvas overalls in the mail. ✨ These have been over dyed, but the dye is unstable. Would I be dumb to try to wash them and see what’s underneath the black? #truevintageootd
🐴 This 1940s tooled leather purse has been on my wishlist for the longest time. Among one of my purchases yesterday at @thevintageshow I finally found it with stunning floral detail (in great condition!) from @phenixnyc - also how insane is that bullet clasp??

The most common thing I hear from people who message me is that they didn't think they could wear vintage or pinup because of their size. . Why is this? This is often because they've never seen anyone their size wearing these styles before. Because of a lack of representation. It's an unfortunate truth that the community has been lacking in size representation, though that representation is indeed growing. . I can only do so much. I can post pictures and be very flattered when people send these messages to me, but I cannot do anything on my own to change the community. I can, however, reach out and tell you that you will look amazing. That if you wear it with confidence, the world will embrace you and even if it doesn't - who cares? . We're here for a long time, not a good time. Your happiness is more important than anything and if wearing vintage will make you happy, who gives a damn?
