1960s Print Shirt Dress

A year ago I was preparing my trip to Hungary to visit friends and family.  This year I am expecting my daughter for the holidays in my new home. I feel happier and stronger than a year ago.

1990s jumpsuit

I have been feeling nostalgic the past few days.  Looking at old family pictures I found this photo of myself walking the runway in 1993 in Montreal, Canada.  I feel funny about 80s and 90s “vintage” clothes, to me it’s just something I wore when I was younger.1990s runway meWHAT: 1990s jumpsuit.  (It wasn’t vintage at the time of this photo was taken, haha).

1960s shirt dress

I feel confused. When does life stop being a struggle?  My real home is in my fantasy world in an enchanted forest with wacky flowers and weird trees around me where heat waves don’t wash over me 100 times a night and I wake up refreshed, where distasteful coffee doesn’t replace sleep and rest and boredom is not the price to pay for food and shelter.

Vintage 1960s Knit Maxi Dress

I saw The Veldt (then Apollo Heights) live for the first time about three years ago and it was love at the first sight.   I feel happy whenever I listen to their music or hang out with them after the show but my favorite moments are  just sitting back and working on my knitting while they are practicing.

Retro 1960s A-line Print Tunic

Lately, I have been feeling uninspired to do anything creative. Ideas dried up for a while, driving force overtaken by pure and simple laziness. I know the mind needs to rest to renew itself but I feel impatient to wait.

DSCF5403WHAT: Vintage inspired geometric print cotton A-line tunic dress, worn with vintage style Pour la Victoire sandals.  Although, this tunic is a retro piece not an original vintage, (the label reads “Good Things”), it was love at first site when I found it.  The pretty print, color and shape is totally MOD.

Vintage 1960s Print Jersey Dress

Life gave me a LOT OF lemon this year.  It feels difficult not to be angry to the circumstances and stay focused on my goals and all that is great in my life.  The truth is that deep down I feel very happy and I do have a lot to feel grateful for (and I also LOVE lemonade).DSCF5071WHAT: Vintage 1960s flair dress with long sleeves and zip front in print jersey, worn with purple flats.
