Blogger of the Week: Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing

Satin Sheath 043

Have you been over to Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing yet?  She is sewing her way through all 14 styles in the 1952 publication, Vogue’s New Guide for Better Sewing.  Even if you don’t sew, you are going to love her talent, fabulous style, great discussions about fashion, feminism, and even Project Runway!  And, I am very jealous of her new red satin sheath dress!  Go check it out.

Blogger of the Week: Libemarlene Vintage

Libemarlene
This week’s blogger of the week is Rhiannon of Lebemarlene Vintage.  She always has the most beautiful photos, great vintage finds, and stories from her travels around the southeast.  Since I grew up outside of Atlanta, I love seeing her pics of the city and the nearby small towns.  And, I am always pining over the gorgeous dresses in her shop.  So, click on the link above and check it out!

I’ll do a post about this movie later in the week, but go ahead and mark your calendars, because West End Movies is showing one of my favorite movies, His Girl Friday, this Friday, August 28 at 8pm.  This is such a funny and entertaining movie, and for a mere $5.

Blogger of the Week: A Dress A Day

A Dress A Day

I have discovered that the perfect thing to do on a rough Monday morning is to click over to A Dress A Day for some beautiful dresses and a great laugh!  Erin posts a new vintage pattern, dress, photo, or fabric nearly everyday, but even better than all that is her witty commentary and her hilarious “Pattern Stories.”  Ever wondered what the ladies in these old pattern illustrations are really thinking?  Well, wonder no more because Erin from A Dress A Day uncovers the mystery for you.  Check it out!

Casey's elegant musings

This week’s blogger of the week is Casey of Casey’s elegant musings.  If you haven’t been to her site, stop whatever it is you are doing and click on the link!  She offers tons of vintage inspirations, hair and make-up tips, beautiful sewing creations, and all around fun.  Her hair tutorials have inspired the way I do my hair most days of the week, not to mention her sewing projects (including the shorts in the pic above) have helped me pick out my projects as well!

Blogger of the Week: Vixen Vintage

This week’s blogger of the week is Solanah of Vixen Vintage!  She has such amazing style, from her fabulous vintage clothes, flawless hair and make-up, to her expansive collection of vintage hats.  While I do think that everyone can integrate bits of vintage style into their lives, I have to admire someone who lives it so completely.  Plus, she just got married!  Congrats Solanah!  Go check out her hair and make-up tips and visit her Etsy shop where you can get a hold of some of her vintage finds.

Blogger of the Week: Lulu’s Vintage

Lulu's vintage

There are quite a few vintage style blogs in my blog roll, so I am planning to highlight a different one every few weeks in case you are looking for a place to start.  One of the first vintage blogs I started following several years ago is Lulu’s Vintage.  Lulu scours the Internet for the best in vintage fashion for men and women, modern vintage inspired clothes, ads, accessories, and modern day style icons.  She recently announced the winners of her annual Lulu’s Vintage People’s Choice awards and her Vintage Top 10 Award.  It is a great resource for all the best vintage sites out there.  Lulu takes a lot of the work out of finding great vintage styles on the Internet.  Check it out!

Radio Dismuke

And, since it’s Monday and we could probably all us a pick me up, I want to introduce another of my favorite resources, Radio Dismuke!  Radio Dismuke features original recordings from 1925-1935, and is absolutely free.  I love to have it on in the background whenever I am sewing or cleaning because it makes me feel like I have stepped back in time.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
