Vintage: Chic & Fuzzy

I did one of those ridiculous moves again and deleted my outfit photos before I had the chance to show you guys. I guess it happened when I was clearing off my memory cards for yesterdays store shoot; I just feel so bad because I've mentioned that denim romper to you guys for a couple days now. Unfortunately my busy early week schedule is preventing me from getting back to all your wonderful comments and from going out to take anymore photos, but I promise I'll be back to my regular mode again soon.

I'll just show you some of my internet haunts for now.

Maybe it's the Chictopia 'Chic & Fuzzy' contest in the back of my mind, but lately I've been browsing through a lot of vintage pet photos. There's something about them that really brings the most pleasant smile to my face.

Aren't they the sweetest. I submitted a picture of me and Monkey to the contest, and we're actually do a pretty good job!

Most of the vintage photos came from this and this flickr account, but for any other sources (and more precious pet photos) just hop on over to my tumblr account. My new tumblr background is actually the design I drew up for my soon-to-be-printed business cards!

These are incredible Starr. So many gorgeous old photos. Love the little Edwardian girl shaking her finger at the dog on the chair.

i love the little boy with the bunny. if only all boys dressed up to play with animals!

hey, i'm late to this game (i avoid the internet on the weekends, and i had a long weekend!), but after reading the Jezebel post, I got to thinking about the role of a blogger, the self esteem issues I've had myself at the hands of the internet, and how you and I (you moreso) fit in to the whole scene.

If the author really feels this way, then focusing her time and energy on being a part of this "world" might not be for her. I can't be on facebook or myspace because of self worth issues that always spawn from it.

Keep doing what you're doing, because you ARE doing such an incredible job. I love you Starr!
