Back To School, 1950's Style


Hi all! It's Quincy over at Q's Daydream Vintage, guest blogging for Starr while she's away at New York Fashion Week! I can't tell you how excited I am that Starr asked me to be a part of her blog while she's away, I'm sure having a fabulous time! I absolutely love her blog and I was honored she asked me to do a "Back to School" themed post. 

Just so you know a little bit about me...I recently moved to Nashville Tennessee with my hubby Jonny and work from home selling vintage on Etsy. I've loved vintage as long as I can remember and I am particularly fond of the 1950's. My outfit here was strongly based on the 1950's and my favorite designer Lena Hoschek. I have a feeing this is what I'll be looking like a lot this fall! 
Starr I hope you're having an awesome time and we can't wait for you to get back with lots of stories to tell!






Blouse: Thrifted
