Fall Vintage Inspo

As we’re coming to the end of one season and the start of another, I’m becoming increasingly inspired by the wardrobe changing ritual, as well as combining one-of-a-kind consigned and thrifted vintage pieces with my contemporary garments. Because I’ve always been obsessed with the nostalgic attributes of older fashion and photography; English photographer, Norman Parkinson’s work has become a prime source of inspiration!  I’m truly a sucker for photography and paintings, hence my apartment is somewhat of an art gallery within itself. Any how, although Parkinson is well-known for shooting numerous Harper Bazaar and Vogue spreads, as well as fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn and Iman– his other work is no exception. All of his photos feature a culmination of stylish, witty and cool trends, which I plan to incorporate in my current wardrobe . Plus, his photos convey a tale of how Britain’s austere culture in the 1950’s sashayed into the swinging 60s. In addition, these images are spectacular for offering tips to stay on trend with this season’s 1950s-inspired looks! By the way, cheers to kicking-off London Fashion Week!!!

As everyone knows, I love sporting my fur collar coats since they’re very classic and chic for rendering a fashion forward look for any occasion. Plus, who doesn’t love London? I definitely do!

I admire the composition of the photo like all the others. But I’m especially intrigued by the sexual appeal of the Little Black Dress.
