I’m a parody of myself once again, which is how I always feel best. I rarely wear separates – too many moving parts to adjust and readjust – but I really liked this outfit. Everyday ’40s wear always feels secretarial somehow, like a working girl who’s saved up to buy a dashing little hat. It always gets me in the literary way.
And what a fitting way to be – this month I’ve got an essay out in Caboodle Magazine! Online credentials are still credentials, but there’s something ineffable about being in print. Nothing compares. I’ve got a two-page spread with an illustration and everything. Buy it online at caboodlemagazine.com!
I’ve also been commissioned by one of the websites I freelance for to write an ethnography of the vintage blogosphere. If you’re a vintage blogger or instagrammer, I want to hear from you! You’ll be counted in my stats and possibly selected for a feature interview. Click over to Google Forms to take the survey, and please share it with your fellow vintage mavens.
